The White Nexus 4 Is Finally Real

LG just spat out the white Nexus 4. Unfortunately, other than the white skin on the back, there's nothing different about it compared the black version. No Android 4.3, no LTE, no MicroSD slot.

LG Denies Nexus 4 Shortages Are Its Fault and Says No Nexus 5 Incoming

After Google basically threw LG under a bus, telling the world+dog that all the Nexus 4 shortages and issues were LG's fault, the Korean manufacturer has finally responded.

Watch the LG Nexus 4 Take Cringe-Worthy Drops to the Pavement Like a Champ

Surprise! The LG Nexus 4 Does Have LTE, It's Just Not Switched On

OK, here's a strange one. Following that iFixit teardown of the Nexus 4, it looks like LG and Google did kit out its new flagship with LTE after all, or at least a Qualcomm multi-band LTE chip, it's just not active.
