HTC Making New Nexus Device to Compete With LG?

Andy Rubin let it slip a few weeks ago that Google was working on another Nexus device, this one to be the first device to run Ice Cream Sandwich, which essentially brings Honeycomb to both tablets and phones, with each device getting the assets and features that fit it best. We first heard whispers that LG would be the manufacturer of this new Nexus device (some referred to it as the Nexus 3), but now we’re learning that HTC also has a hand in the proverbial cookie jar.

Google Music to Finally Launch, Without Major Label Backing

Without knowing all the details, it stuns me that record labels in America continue to be very short sighted about the fact that the vast majority of consumers get their music digitally from the internet. Perhaps they are still smarting over the Napster debacle from the 90’s, but if an internet giant like Google came to me and said, “Hey, let’s launch a killer service that all of our users will have access to and will get you guys paid, but it will be in a different way than you are used to.”, I would sit up and listen and most likely act. Not so with the current major recording companies, as Engadget is reporting that someone has leaked that Google Music will be announced today at I/O, but as a cloud storage and streaming service rather than a subscription based offering. And the labels wonder why the continue to hemorrhage money.

    The Spica is also called the Galaxy light, it seems that Samsung has pretty much lived up to it's promise saying it would roll out a great bunch of android phones. The samsung spica seems like a great phoen to me, I suppose this phone also features Samsung's Touchwiz?
