Sony. That being their impressive XPERIA ZL flagship device. It has been available to buy unlocked in the U.S. for a little while already, but we wanted to take a closer look at the hardware and software in a quick unboxing, while also pondering the idea of an XPERIA Nexus edition. Take a peek below at the video and plenty of hands-on pictures.
GALAXY S 4, then last week HTC announced the Nexus experience HTC One, and now it sounds like Sony could be next. And I'm sure Huawei and LG will probably follow. Read on for more details on the Xperia Z GE.
for over $12 billion in 2011, many (myself included) thought Motorola would be the first company to release what we're now seeing as Google or Nexus experience phones. However, Samsung managed to beat them to the punch, and now even HTC. What gives?

multiple hardware partners announcing Nexus-like devices running stock Android. Previous rumors have pegged Android 4.3 Jelly Bean (not Key Lime Pie) for June 10th, but others are stating it will arrive in early July.

For those worried that Google could be taking this route in the future, and ending the Nexus program we all know and love. Don't worry, because that isn't happening any time soon.
'Senseless Edition' HTC One was real. In fact, Google has officially announced the handset and it will be available towards the end of June.

Or in simpler terms, they are releasing an HTC One without the Sense user interface.
shared some news and details about their ever expanding Street View project. Taking their cameras and eye-level views through parts of New York City that most might never be able to visit. Things like Central Park and the 9/11 Memorial. While we don't want to take anything away from them for that, we did notice an interesting device in their video.
Nexus 5" for Google, one company executive has claimed, with the South Korean firm supposedly looking to in fact reduce its dependency on Android moving forward. LG's roadmap does not include the next-gen Nexus, VP of LG Eurpe Won Kim told All About Phones, describing the collaboration as a win for marketing but arguing that "we do not need such a marketing success again."
