iPad mini, LG Nexus 4 and Windows 8: get ready for the most exciting 10 days in tech in 2012

Those are clearly some of the biggest launches for the industry this year. Not only that, the iPad mini will give one huge boost to the affordable smaller tablet niche. The Microsoft Surface on the other hand marks the beginning of a new era at Microsoft, one where the company starts to manufacture its most important hardware itself, hoping it’s not too late to the mobile boom.
Finally, we’re eagerly anticipating Google’s Nexus event on October 29th. With so many companies fighting for the lime light, check out the slideshow below to see who brings what to win.

This makes no sense. It's much better to have some people running a freshly updated OS (Android) than to have every single user running a many months outdated OS (Windows Phone). Android 4.1 doesn't make Android 4.0 bad. But at least Android users have the option of an OS that is more recent than Windows Phone 7.5.

Gingerbread is an OS from late 2010. Ice Cream Sandwich is from late 2011. Jelly Bean is from 2012. Windows Phone 7 is from 2010, and 7.5 is from 2011. Windows Phone 8 is from 2012. Windows 7.x users are basically screwed: There is no update path at all. Gingerbread and ICS users might be able to wait for an update or flash a ROM. ROM flashing, of course, an impossibility on Windows due to its closed nature. Bottom line is, Android is in better shape than Windows in terms of updates. Side note: I still run Gingerbread.

Can someone please explain the ongoing fascination with a Sony Nexus? As a Verizon customer, I've only been exposed to one Xperia device, the midrange Play, which only really appeals to the hardcore gamer. What's so great about the Xperia line that it has such a huge following? Or rather, what would an Xperia Nexus bring to the table that an LG or Samsung would not, other than the obvious customer choice?
