The forth-generation Nexus smartphone from Google is, not surprisingly, the Nexus 4. This Android-powered phone is built by LG, and offers many high-end features in a relatively inexpensive package.
T-Mobile will sell the Nexus 4 for $199 with a two-year contract; no surprise there. But Google also sells an unlocked GSM version for $100 more. That’s a brand new, unlocked Nexus phone for $299 with no contract.
Features include a 1.5GHz quad-core CPU, 2GB of RAM, a 4.7-inch touchscreen, an 8MP primary camera, NFC, and the latest version of the Android OS, v4.2 "Jelly Bean." The phone is available with either 8GB or 16GB of internal flash storage. However, it does not have LTE.
The Nexus 4 is getting great, glowing reviews.

We’ve now received several emails from AT&T customers looking to upgrade to a new Android phone that each ask the same question:
Should I choose the Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket or the LG Nitro HD?
And it’s a good question. After all, the two phones are nearly identical in most respects. They are each powered by the same dual-core, 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S3 SoC processors, each have 1GB of DDR2 RAM, each run Android 2.3, each have 4.5-inch touchscreen displays, LTE “4G” support, 8MP cameras, etc., etc…
With all the similarities between the two devices, it’s a very understandable question to ask. Which should I choose?

We’re now beginning to see more details on T-Mobile’s upcoming G-Slate Android 3.0 tablet from LG that was announced at last month’s CES.
The tablet, which runs Android “Honeycomb,” sports an 8.9-inch multi-touch display that’s 3D capable; this means you’ll be able to view 3D video and/or games with compatible glasses. In addition, users will be able to record their own 3D video using the G-Slate, courtesy of rear-facing stereoscopic cameras. The screen can display 720p video, though exact resolution details have not yet been released. Users will also have the ability to output 720p and 1080p HD video via a built-in HDMI port.
The G-Slate is powered by a Tegra 2 SoC with two application cores clocked at 1GHz (the same processor inside the Motorola XOOM, expected to be released in the next few weeks). T-Mobile’s “4G” network is supported right out of the box.
32GB of flash storage is included, though no mention has been made of a memory expansion slot, which likely means there won’t be one.
T-Mobile expects to begin offering the new Android tablet in the spring (April or May). No pricing details were released.
