Google Debuts Nexus 5 Hero

After months of rumors and speculations, the Nexus 5 has finally been revealed! It wasn’t too much of surprise being that we’ve seen pictures all over the internet but I’m pretty sure than any Android fan will agree that it was worth the wait. Even me, A guy who is an Apple sheep personally thinks that this is an AWESOME phone!

The latest pure Google phone features a 4.95-inch full HD 1080p display, a quad-core 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800 processor, an 8-megapixel camera with optical image stabilization, either 16GB of internal storage, 2GB of RAM, Wi-Fi a/b/g/n, NFC and Bluetooth 4.0. It also sports Google’s new Android 4.4 KitKat operating system and  includes a 4G LTE radio.

The price for this new toy is amazingly cheap.  Google’s new hero phone starts at just $349 for the 16GB model without a service contract.

From the looks of it, this phone will not disappoint and I cannot wait to get my hands on one and play with it. Google seems to never disappoint with its latest products. I have high hopes for this bad boy.

Phonebloks – The next step

If you read my post before this one then you watched the video about Phonebloks and how to build your own smartphone. Well here is a video by Dave Hakkens, the creator of the idea of Phonebloks. This is the next step into the future of Modular smartphones!

Build Your Own Smart Phone

It may sound hard to believe but Google, Motorola, and Phonebloks are teaming together to make a smart phone that is fully up-gradable. This is an aim they are taking to reduce electronic waste.

As announced by Moto X maker, both tech giants are finally revealing “Project Ara”, a modular hardware system that lets you build a phone with purchased parts. These parts can be swapped out and easily upgraded.

Project Ara is a unique attempt in reducing electronic waste. If you break your screen there is no need in replacing the phone, you can just pull it off it get a new screen. Want more storage and processing power? Buy bigger and faster modules. There is no need to spend hundreds of dollars on a completely new phone!

This is going to be the biggest thing yet in the cellular industry.
