Don't need to read that ***** all over i5
It also seems kinda pointless to compare a device that costs 239 with one at 529.... It even seems silly just typing those numbers!

Wow - really wanted to get a lumia after watching the Windows phone webcast earlier but the price of this is seriously making me think otherwise!

Shock waves in Cupertino

I actually meant screen size though once you have used bigger nothing else will feel the same.
lol we will see, It does seem where things are going, as long as I dont have a Samsung Galaxy Note any time soon, although I do like the look of the HTC J Butterfly

Yeah but the reality is they do compare although all logic says at those prices something must be wrong.

Considering it costs $200 to make an iPhone, the Nexus 4 must be comparable so Google must be making very little per unit.

Since I've seen this I've been looking at my iPhone like it's a piece of shit

It's a shame they aren't selling it in white, I like white phones.

Its an odd day on digital spy if gormond might be swayed

Just persuaded my kids that the nexus 4 should be their Christmas update over their planned s3's....

1) should save me a few quid
2) I get to play with 2 new nexuses

Android might not have the biggest AppStore, but its very mature now. Where as WindowsPhone just doesn't have the AppStore yet, but hopefully will do in a year or too. Then we'll have 3 OS' in the phone market which will be good for everyone, just for the competition.
Ah, poor BlackBerry, forgotten again

Nice to see a Swype-style keyboard included, I love Swype, it is so much quicker and accurate to type with.

Thanks for that, watching it now, I really like the sound of new features of jelly bean, gesture typing looks neat.

Yeah I can understand why people like these things but personally i'm not fussed.

The inductive charging looks neat, this is how all these things should charge IMO.

LOL, ah yes. Poor Symbian. I had a Symbian S60 N95 five years ago, and a few years before that I had a Symbian UIQ SE P900. Ugh... Smartphone OSs have come a long, long way since those...

I don't even know what that is! First thing that came to mind was The Sopranos and bada bing

I would love to have inductive charging on everything. I hate cables. 100% wireless would be awesome.
