Not at all
These two are the last names that come to mind when we think about Nexus 10 branding.

Asus or LG maybe? Coz these 2 are the only brands that could create the next Nexus 10 base on the rumors.

Why did google give kitkat the version number 4.4 and not 5.0 or 5.1 because it is supposed to be a huge leap like when google moved from ics to jellybean?

When will the LG G2 get KitKat? Or at least any timeframe when to expect it.

Is it hard to reduce the size of the bezels on the left and right side of the screen? Does it increase the engineering cost in any way?

Another item to consider between a 1020 and a 925 is that you get an extra GB of RAM with the 1020. Now WP8 is pretty memory efficient, so it may not make a big difference in your usage, but it is something to consider.

The problem there is that WP 8.1 isn't out yet.

I own note 3 .I love big screen but also like taking pictures. Am at cross road between 1020 and 1520.
I need an honest opinion please. Thanks

Note 3 is a very good device: it has a good processor, a lot of ram, cool SPen software and a good camera. Why should you switch? But if you decided to switch only because of the camera of your device, the only choice is Lumia 1020, which is the best cameraphone on the market. If you want smoother performance and bigger screen size, Lumia 1520 is also kind of an option, but it's camera is worse than 1020's one and, probably, a bit better than note 3's (there are no comparison's at this moment). Note 3 to Lumia 1520 isn't an upgrade, they are almost equal. So, think twice before you switch! I hope that it helped!

Is Microsoft going to keep Nokia as a brand? And what do you think about Xbox-phone instead of Lumia?

Hello there Ray,
I heard that the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 can shoot 4K videos, the Snapdragon 800 version. Does that mean it has the ability to play back 4K videos straight from the phone? If so, then do the other phones that have S800 such as G2 or Z1 have that ability also?
Thanks in advance.

Does Android have built in feature for private talking to one of the parties in the conference call like in iPhone?

I know there are a couple of apps for that (Voxeet, Speek). But I always wished for better conference features on Andrioid stock.
