I would talked about apple already -- -- stock selloff -- -- Google now about the stock but the product.
The newest phone nexus for might be equipped with wireless charging capability latest android software.
But I'll Walt Mossberg just comes on every week get to talk about it has a new review of the acts and done you'll give -- -- -- now.
Aziz -- here in this week's all things digital mister Walt Mossberg personal technology columnists at the Wall Street Journal.
You don't love that Walt.
Well I mean that -- just noticed one odd thing guys good morning you know this says Romney won.
And that's it is that earlier that -- -- that it now had been working on not all morning -- -- delivered a pretty well actually.
Ask it now hello yeah I mean I I question the fox call according to this but anyway I'm -- Not now seriously.
It's a good phone.
You jet at a generally -- these it this -- -- called the nexus go home.
Obviously licenses and right to hundreds of.
Other companies they don't.
There -- hardware yet although they own Motorola.
What they do that make.
He's very specific.
Models called nexus.
Turn out to tablets this is the fourth phone they've done they're caught this called lexis and nexus means in -- A world here's the best.
What we think is that kind of purist version of -- right and what everybody else sort of been modeling so this -- The nexus for LG built it for them and when you think a bit like that I thought it was a little disappointing.
In the past when they brought these nexus devices that they tended to bring out a huge new release of android.
This is just a minor it's it's new but it's -- it's.
It's a relatively evolutionary release of and -- in the -- -- is is really.
Evolutionary has a few nice new features.
But there are some missing things on here.
And I'll just mention -- two of them one is LTE.
It does have a four G a network.
Capability on here.
But it's not LTE NL TE is what I think is really the future and that.
And the fastest one and the one that -- in the United States at least is is going to be dominant and secondly.
It only goes up to sixteen gigabytes which is where most of the other Smartphones start right.
And it cannot be expanded it does not have -- some of the android phones will do.
A memory expansion card -- thing.
A lot of people's mind set with this that are gonna get this type of phone is.
-- -- gonna get an apple -- earn interest on and getting an apple funny to get the iPhone that's that's here that's huge debt that's all that's out there right.
But if you're gonna buy an android phone from reading your review you did there other options -- better options is that fair.
I think that's right I mean.
You don't better I mean this has some things -- think funds don't have.
They do on these nexus funds introduce a new features so they have -- 360 degree photo feature.
The other really good thing about it is price -- -- sells these directly unlocked and the unlock prices which.
Viewers need to understand are typically much higher than the 199.
Usually pay because they don't have a subsidized contract.
But the -- price on this starts at two -- nine is much lower than than usual for an unlocked phone.
So there are some some benefits here but.
That you write -- my my sense of it is that if you're gonna go look for an android phone even though.
I've usually really liked the -- bonds that -- right.
This is okay but you you really want to look at Samsung and and as some of the others.
I want of the market up 300 today or does it with the fact that and thank you -- get up 300 whether.
I'll take that that you -- -- hundred this they MW all right see you guys on Wall Street Journal.
