    LG E960 support manuals confirm Nexus 4 name, 8GB and 16GB configurations -- Engadget

    That image on there looks pretty average but the thought of a new Nexus device coming from LG now is much much more interesting after hearing their smart tv plans. Do all Nexus devices require open-source support like the Galaxy Nexus? Could you imagine? It's got the induction coil right there and everything.

    Anyone want to copy that diagram and photoshop the webOS logo on there?

    2013 may be an interesting year!

    A phone with 8 or 16Gb of unexpandable memory, wireless charging… sounds familiar for some reason
    Nokia Lumia 920 (daily driver ) - HP TouchPad 32Gb (in daily use) - TouchPad 16Gb (out on loan to a friend) - Pre 3 (AT&T - unlocked) - Pre3 (EU - dev mule) - Veer Panda (AT&T - unlocked, dunno what I'm gonna do with it) - Pre (much abused n stored for sentimental reasons)

    this looks familiar too


    rumored to be the wireless charging unit for the Nexus 4
    If Google's Nexus line get wireless charging, will Apple follow suit?

    No mention of webOS or Palm touchstone in that article (only in comments)...how rude. It was written as if Nexus is the innovator...MEDIA BIAS!

    Oh well, there IS a difference with their puck...the angle is 1.2 degrees flatter than the Palm version...wow...that is innovation...(note: I have no idea whether there is a difference in the angle of the charging surface or not...I'm just being snarky...sorry...]

    The puck is flatter, but so is the back of a traditional slab phone...

    I think it's less to do with bias and more to do with just bad journalism. A lot of these tech bloggers have very short memories, very bad research skills, and unrealistic deadlines. I doubt they deliberately excluded mention of Palm's innovation in this area, they probably didn't even know about it. Not that that makes it any more excusable...

    (I applaud the editorial gang at webOSNation for bucking the trend and providing strong historical context in their articles.)

    I agree with this, reminds me of the Best Buy article summer of 2011 about touchpads. One person wrote one article with an anonymous source. In the world of the internet and tech news, nobody could be the one to not run the article so every other tech blog ran a version of the article but every single one of them were merely editorials by that writer at the end referencing back to the All Things D article as the source.

    Then all the (mod edit of myself ) folks that wanted to bash webOS used each new article as proof of bad sales and bad blood between HP and BB.



    Now back on topic, glad to see more companies embracing inductive charging, can't imagine having to plug all these devices in every freaking day. I love inductive charging so much, so easy with the phones and touchpads to just plop them down at night or when they need to be topped off. Maybe this amazing technology will start seeping in to more manufacturers, it means those that want metal phones won't get inductive charging or lose the metal back for glass or plastic.
    I love physical keyboards... but there is two devices that would make me consider a slab, one is something running a full version of Open webOS. The other is an iPhone!!!! HA HA just kidding (about the iPhone that is)...

    Would love to know if the palm touchstone (puck) will work with this? Or is the Orb using different technology?

    Different technology.

    Thinking about getting one of these. I don't like the random shut downs with the pre 3 on T-Mobile. Once they port to one nexus is it going to be just as complicated to port to the 4.?
  18. #18  
    Different hardware, so yup. Every device will be like that, requiring its own effort, just like it is with CyanogenMod and Android.

    The new Nexus 4 is using a qualcomm chipset, is that one as open as the TI OMAP series? I heard that qualcomm socs in other devices are that open as the ti chips, will this change for this device because of being part of nexus line?

    It looks like newer Qualcomm chips are more open, but the older ones in our Veers, Pre3's and Touchpads are not :'(
