02/28/2014, When Nokia first unveiled the Nokia X and its forked version of Android, we were immediately reminded of Amazon.

03/19/2013, Google’s Nexus devices are favored by some Android users due to the stock Android experience. However the Nexus 4 when compared to the Samsung Galaxy S4 pales in comparison in terms of specs and features, and we expect that many Android users will flock over to the Galaxy S4 and ultimately root and flash a custom ROM on their device to rid themselves of Samsung’s TouchWiz UI.
