Okay, then. First off is a rumor about the next flagship Android phone, what's being called the Nexus 4G. Photos and specs leaked earlier this week about a device that may or may not be coming from HTC, may or may not be headed to AT&T in the US, but is definitely going to run Android 4, aka Ice Cream Sandwich. With a giant 720p HD display, a dual-core processor and dual cameras, and support for 4G networks - perhaps AT&T's forthcoming LTE service - Nexus 4G will continue Google's tradition of releasing "Nexus" phones that show off the latest build of Android. This Ice Cream Sandwich of a smartphone may be hitting stores in time for Thanksgiving dinner. Get the full scoop at: Google Nexus 4G
What about an iPad with a higher resolution display than your desktop PC? Sound crazy? It might just happen - maybe even this year. Some code buried in the "Twitter.framework" section of Apple's just-released iOS 5 beta references a display resolution of 1536 x 2048, which essentially doubles the dimensions of iPad / iPad 2's 768 x 1024 display (though that works out to way more than double the pixels). Based on iPad 2's 9.7" physical screen size, 1536 x 2048 would create a "Retina Display," Apple's term for a screen whose pixels are so densely packed that they render an image sharper than the human eye can process. Currently the iPhone 4 is the only device with a Retina Display; could iPad 3 be next? Get the whole scoop at: Apple iPad3
