Sony Nexus X was a fake, and the failure of our reporting

0. phoneArena posted on 19 Oct 2012, 20:07

We all wanted to believe it, because we all really want to see what a Sony Nexus device would be like, but unfortunately we were all fooled this past week. And worse, the entire tech news community failed in our reporting of the story...

I can't believe you still post here. Literally no one likes you, nor do they want or respect you insane heavily biased opinions/comments.

The thing is, it wasn't even a convincing fake. If you really looked at that photo of the back of the phone, it was quite clearly cobbled from 3 different devices. Everyone here was so excited to see ANY news of a Sony Nexus, they ate it right up, and thumbed down any skeptics.

Pics like that need the 'concept' tag attached to them. Kinda sloppy on his part though.

I don't usually take leaks serious unless I see at least 5 stories about it, rule of thumb. But really I think nexus should truly invest in sony. It just makes too much sense

I wouldn't call it ^fake^ repeatedly, it is not fake it was a concept. A concept is a different thing and a fake is another mater.

Very well done by the way, with the concept.

lol. Told yall it was a fake. The Sony logo on the back was not perfectly lined up with the top/bottom bezel.

The good news is that it created a lot of excitement. So if Sony is smart they will try to bring something like that to the table.

Hopefully all the interest this phone got before it was announced as a concept has caught Google's attention and they've seen that there's a lot of people who'd love to see a Sony Nexus.

Phonearena posts a lot of misinformation in their articles, or, at the very least, it does not give its readership the complete picture,
at times.

Just like android too many nexus devices too soon takes the "special" out of said device. I say let LG have their moment and Sony next year

Yes, I for one appreciate how Google has run its Nexus program. They've highlighted the strongest players each season - HTC in early '10, Samsung from late '10-late '11, Asus for their excellent tablets in early '12, and now LG has finally proven itself worthy with the Optimus G. That's how Android should be - everybody deserving gets a chance to shine.
