Another couple New Shots of the Nexus 5 Leak ahead of its release


Not much to say about this expected press render from the well known leakster’s @evleaks other than its the clearest shot of what looks to be the final product that is the Nexus 5 from Google & LG.
We can see that the black model will have a nice soft touch rubber coating like the Nexus 7 with the Nexus logo carved out to reveal the plastic underneath and an embossed LG logo. The white model seems to have a matte white plastic back with printed Nexus & LG logo’s & will have shiny plastic sides unlike the black models soft touch material.

The month is quickly coming to an end & as the Nexus 5 is rumoured to be going on sale in Canada on Nov 8th we “should” be seeing an official announcement for the N5 any day now.

We pretty much know everything about the device including most of the specs & the multiple storage options, 16gb & 32gb as well as the starting price ($349 for the 16gb) which was leaked on Google’s own Playstore last week & finally that it will pack the newest version of Android 4.4 Kit Kat.
So now all we need to know is when will this officially be announced and if we can indeed get our hands on one as of Nov 8th here in the cold North & those are some extremely frustrating answers to wait upon but all will be better in just a few short days.

Anybody else getting impatient with this launch or is it just us? Hit the comments & let us know whats on your mind when it comes to the Nexus 5 below.

What’s next for BlackBerry after the January 30th launch of BB10?


CEO Thorsten Heins, speaking to German-language magazine Die Welt, says the company is considering several things once BB10 is launched. These include selling off the company’s hardware division, which makes BlackBerry phones. The company might also license out its mobile operating system, like what Microsoft does with Windows Phone, or Google with Android. Another option is licensing out BlackBerry Messenger, which is one of the platforms’ more popular functions, as well as RIM’s enterprise services infrastructure. RIM also could move production of its devices to a third party company.

There is no hurry for any of these, though, says Heins, although these are possible scenarios for RIM moving forward. Right now they are  focused on launching the  BlackBerry 10 platform by January 30th & gaining ground back on other OS’s.

Well what do you think RIM should do with Blackberry?
Would you love to see a BB10 device made by your favorite company making Android or Windows phones presently?
