PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Having failed to carve out a place for itself in the post-PC era, Hewlett-Packard is now taking drastic measures - by adopting Google's Android operating system to run a series of upcoming mobile devices. It's a bit of a Hail Mary pass for HP, which has fallen years behind its rivals in the mobile space. It's also a big win for Google, which adds another powerful partner to the Android ecosystem." Ugh.

I'm not sure I agree with that. The Nexus S may not have been a breakthru device, but the Galaxy Nexus(720p, Dual core, no buttons) and Nexus 4(S4 pro, 2GB RAM) were top of the line specs when them came out. Sure there were phones that came out after with better specs, but compared to the phones out at the time(SII, Bionic/Atrix, Desire;SIII, OneX, RZR HD) the Nexii held there own. I don't equate screen size to a better spec, and I will admit cameras have been weak.
