Azar is an IT administrator and he's looking at getting a tablet for work. He has a Nexus 5 phone. Leo says that a Nexus 7 is a great companion for that. Azar says he can get a refurbished one for $100. Leo advises not doing that. It's likely the first generation and they had issues. Get the new version. It's worth spending the money on.
What about the Dell Venue Windows Tablet? Leo says the advantage to that is Microsoft Office. But if he can do everything he needs with the Android, why not?
Archie is looking to get a new smartphone and is looking at either the LG G2 and the Nexus 5. Leo says that they're very similar in design, but the Nexus 5 has the advantage of being a pure Google experience. It'll also have the latest Android OS, Kit Kat.
Google announced its Nexus 5 smartphone on October 31st. Google has been offering an Android phone that is a "pure Google" experience. It has no extra software from manufacturers or carriers. Google is trying to do two things with this phone -- Show what a phone running stock Android looks like, and to have an inexpensive phone that developers can easily buy and use. This phone costs a mere $349 unsubsidized and without a contract. This is half of the cost of other top of the line phones unsubsidized.
Google released its next smart phone, called Nexus 5, made by LG. Like the previous Nexus phone, Google sells this unlocked and unsubsidized starting at $349 -- that's nearly half the cost of buying most competing smartphones unsubsidized. Make sure to buy it from the Google Play store though, because other retailers like Best Buy currently sell it for around $700 instead! This may be because there's a longer wait to get it from the Play store at this time.
Later this week, Google's Nexus 5 will be coming out. Rumors are suggesting that it will be October 31st or November 1st. It will likely be around $350 and have state of the art specs, making the geeks happy. It'll be unlocked and will probably be for T-Mobile, not Sprint.
