And let me not overlook that last point. The LTE situation on the Nexus 4 has been discussed to death, and I don’t want to belabor it again here. But let’s be clear: this was a cowardly move on Google’s part. Producing an unlocked HSPA device isn’t hard anymore. With the Nexus 4, Google isn’t “making a statement,” rocking the impenetrable boat that is the US wireless industry, or putting anyone on notice. They took the easy way out, and wireless consumers — as usual — bear the brunt of the politicking.
Yup. In interviews like this one, Google sounds so proud of itself for the Nexus 4. It’s a joke. Thanks so much for the shit sandwich you’re feeding us, Google. May we have another?
