Google While Microsoft is unveiling all about Windows Phone 8, Google ruined the party a little bit by 'leaking' all about Android 4.2, the Nexus 10 tablet, and the new Nexus phone, the LG Nexus 4. There's some pretty awesome stuff in here from Google - except for the fact the devices themselves are kind of ugly.

The only concern I would have about this trend is that Google is likely just breaking even on the hardware or the margins are razor thin. So where are they making their money?


The fact is that tablets and phones really aren't that expensive to make. eg Just see how little Huawei phones cost in comparison to comparable models from "major" brands.

There's a difference between a quality phone and a cheap piece of crap

Since today all the devices are assembled in china by more or less the same factories there is hardly an quality argument to make on hw level. Its all the same crap.

As if China can't make good quality stuff. Of course they can, that's just not the usual business model. If you don't think there's a difference between the quality of an iPhone or top Android phone and a no-name chinese brand then you've clearly never used either.
