    The Samsung Galaxy Camera sounds like one of those "why has this not been done before?" ideas on paper. This connected camera runs Google's Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operation system at its core, which, in combination with the camera's 1.4GHz quad core processor,...

    Google Nexus 10 review

    By 9 November 2012

    The Nexus 10 is Google's latest big Android tablet. It follows a line of 10-inch devices that started with the Motorola Xoom, back in 2010, with the launch of Honeycomb, before the baton passed to Samsung. This 10-inch tablet joins the Nexus 7 in Google's...

    Google Nexus 4 review

    By 7 November 2012

    The Nexus is a strange category of device. Designed as a pure Android experience, it's a family of Google devices that's principally pitched at Android developers, but also popular with consumers. Why is it popular? Because the Nexus devices are free...

    Nexus 4 pictures and hands-on

    By 31 October 2012

    Google understands something a lot of manufacturers don't. Not every person on the planet can afford a £400 handset, and perhaps even some people who CAN afford one, aren't inclined to pay that much for what is, essentially, a phone. So the Nexus 4 is...

    Android 4.1: Jelly Bean review

    By 17 July 2012

    Android 4.1, known as Jelly Bean to its friends, isn't the huge step change that its predecessor was. Where Ice Cream Sandwich ushered in button-less controls and a change in look and feel to Android, Jelly Bean is much more of an incremental update....

    Nexus 7 review

    By 11 July 2012

    We have a love-hate relationship with the Android tablet. You can see it written across the pages of Pocket-lint, through numerous reviews. Do it right and the Android tablet is a wonderful companion. Do it wrong, and it's an awkward shoehorning of the...
