Earlier today, a couple of rather exciting photos found on Picasa began hitting news sites showing what could be a leaked device called the Sony Nexus X. Of course, during Nexus season, any rumor or glance at a possible new device is always exciting, but sometimes it's worth while to take a step back and consider whether what we're looking at is actually what it appears to be. Our penchant for putting leaked images under the microscope led us to do a bit of investigating. Read More
The worst kept secret in the history of Nexus devices just keeps on giving, and this time it looks like we have unofficial confirmation that LG's new device will indeed be called "Nexus 4".
Employees from LG and Google have both uploaded photos to Google+ using the unreleased device, and the EXIF information for the shots both call the camera that has been used 'Nexus 4'.
Both of the photos were taken on Saturday, and uploaded to the social network over the weekend. Read More
As we reported yesterday, there are decidedly loud rumblings that Japanese telecom giant Softbank is in talks to acquire a rather large hunk of Sprint. Today, more information regarding the potential deal has been leaked to Reuters by a person close to the matter, and the numbers are staggering.
Softbank is looking to buy 70% of Sprint, and they're asking for $23 billion in financing from Japanese banks to do it. Read More
Oh, look - another LG Nexus leak! I'm already convinced that this is the worst kept secret in Nexus history. Alas, the shiny little beast has made its way into Carphone Warehouse's inventory system as the "LGNexus4," and it looks like we'll be seeing two color variations of the device: white and black.
While we've heard the device could be called the "LG Optimus G Nexus" (effectively making it the worst Nexus name in the history of everything), rumors are still flying around every day. Read More
At this point, we've all seen the shiny, glistening, sparkly LG Nexus. Opinions of the look seem to be split right down the middle - some users love it, while others can't stand the thing. Personally, I'm on the fence about it, and I'm equally as skeptical if this is even the final design. For all we know, the prototype was designed this way on purpose so everyone would wonder what Google is thinking (hey, it could happen). Read More
Earlier this evening, we ran a story containing photos of a purported LG Nexus device obtained (and subsequently photographed) by an XDA user. The photos, along with subtle hints like the presence of a Qualcomm modem and kernel, and the presence of a corroborating FCC filing, had us leaning toward the "legit" side of the rumor spectrum.
Now, it looks like a user of a Belarusian forum called Baraholka (which roughly translates to "flea market") has more photos of the device, posted last week – this time lacking what appeared in previous photos to be a shell or casing that disguised the device's real curves (similar to the case we saw on early Galaxy SIII units).

We've been hearing rumors about an LG Nexus for a while now. At first, we were skeptical. However, as the evidence piles up, we're becoming increasingly convinced that this rumor is indeed legit.
Now, a set of photos have surfaced over at the XDA forums that appear to seal the deal.
The first thing you'll probably want to check out in the above shots is the About screen. Read More
I know, I know - more rumors. Right now we all have a bad taste in our mouths from a bit of untruth that was spread throughout the community last week, but it's hard to look the other way when something this juicy turns up. CNet has reportedly gotten confirmation that Google has once again teamed up with Samsung for a Nexus device, only this time the pair are working on a 10.1-inch tablet. Read More
Well, that's one way to announce a new device. Today on Twitter, Japanese user @oppese posted two photos of a Nexus 7 tablet. The first photo shows the storage screen displaying 27.58GB of usable space (indicating a 32GB model), and the second shows packaging for a 16GB Nexus 7. We've heard before that some stores are setting up a place for the higher capacity Nexus 7 on their shelves, but it appears this unit was mistakenly sent to a customer ahead of the full launch.

The rumor mill giveth and the rumor mill taketh away. Late Sunday night, a commenter on our site posted a surprising confession: he was the source of several rumors regarding Android 4.2. Initially, we confirmed that this commenter was the same who had sent us some different yet equally fantastic stories. Our batch hinted that Robert Downey Jr. might have been hired to introduce the new Nexii for the next couple years, for example. Read More
