so whats the next best android-GSM phone now that the nexus is dead?
|It's a bloodbath out there indeed. So last week in less than six weeks from its launch, Microsoft killed its two first phone models and the whole handset project known as Kin. And before we have had time to even digest and understand all the undertones of that bizarre end to a 'strategy' we now see another death in the smartphones space.|
GOOGLE NEXUS ONE IS NEXUS LAST
The CEO of Google, Eric Schmidt announced earlier this week that there won't be another Nexus. No Nexus Two. So their first attempt at making a 'superphone' ended a superdud. And rather than try to learn and make it better [something Apple managed tremendously well where its original iPhone 2 was not being accepted internationally], Google decides to end its line of superphones. This is no doubt welcome news to all the 30 or so manufacturers who are committed to the Android platform, to see that Google is not going to compete with them. That initial launch of Nexus One with its 'proprietary' gains to the OS seemed very unfair at the time. But as we ponder how poorly Google managed its smartphones on the Android platform, consider HTC here next.
