want FM transmitter

Thought we had that already - no one used it.

as you guess someone uses it. there won't be any compromise if Google adds software for FM transmitter because almost every mobile CPU supports FM radios. i don't care if update will be 5 or 10 MB bigger or ever 50, it is very useful feature on Nokia phones. only people who will be unsatisfied with that are GS4 users as they DO NOT HAVE FM chip in a phone anymore

My question would be. What so exciting about key lime pie. And does the current 2013 flagship still upgradable to that version?

I like to know about key lime pie. What will be the features its going to have? And I heard it'll run smooth on low specification like 512mb ram, are they rebuilding Android from the beginning?? (I remember reading somewhere "android never be as smooth as iOS or WP" unless rebuilding it). will comparible with old hardware and anything about new UI??? and is iPhone C going to price as rumoured?? 350$-450$??

Do you guys think that BlackBerry is too late to release their upcoming flagship - the BlackBerry Z30? And do you guys think that BlackBerry will make a comeback? :)

Blackberry is dead. No, actually, Blackberry is beyond dead; it's been wrapped in special bandages and mummified so that it may be discovered as an ancient artifact 2000 years from now.

What will be the major features of key lime pie? Why can't nokia go Android + Windows phone? There are so many Mobile operating systems coming soon , How will all of these succeed as an OS? When will BBM arrive to android?

Do you think that Nokia has finally nailed it with Windows Phone 8? Most users (Including me, I'm Nexus 4 user as well) have started to like the different and smooth UI! But also, its only Nokia who is showing some efforts for promoting Windows Phone 8, microsoft is not doing good regarding updates for Windows Phone 8 like notification centre which is really necessary to have.

Is there anything (other than the larger battery) that is different between the new Droid Ultra and Maxx phones? The local VZW store rep said no (other than the non-smudgy case on the Maxx), but this is Q&A, so here's my Q.

Do you think we will see Motorola make a Nexus device or will it just be LG again? Should Blackberry go private or stay a public traded company? Should Blackberry separate the BBM service into its own company? Do you think KLP will bring Project Roadrunner?

Ok, this question I want on the next video: What will the next WP update bring? Thank you.

D you think WP will ever reach the features and maturity of more progressed OS's like Android or iOS??

Ah, the KLP.. I have a feeling this will be Google's all out tour the force, bringing true optimization and flexibility. I expect a smooth operation in low end devices, and a desktop mode with full blown multitasking for high end devices.

I have some nice expectations, and as much as I want everything said about it to be true I think it will be slightly underwhelming with so much hype.

Motorola needs to reinvent and resurrect the original Droid line, i´m talking about the Droid 5, the last leaked Moto looks like a scrapped design but what about if Motorola designs the Slider??? With the 8X Soc and maybe a huge battery and cutting edge specs... but the only problem is that Android is not optimized for qwerty phones...
