The Nexus 4 is available in Google's play store which every Tom Dick and Harry can access and buy from. Nowhere is it aimed at Devs, but is sold to the mass consumer on a site on which you erm....consume content. See a pattern developing here? It;s quite a clear distinction, using the BB example and the Nexus 4 that one is available to Devs exclusively, the other is a mass produced consumer focused smart phone sold to Joe Public for a very reasonable price.
End of Argument
We have dev phones/tablets in our building that people on this forum couldn't even find on the internet!!!!!!!!
