  • Incipio Feather Sony Xperia ZL Case in Black Incipio Feather Case for Sony Xperia ZL in Black

     


    The latest addition to Sony's XPeria line of smartphones – the XPeria ZL – is just starting to be released. That's something we've been looking forward to at Pure Mobile ever isnce the phone was just unveiled. And now that it's finally here, we're welcoming it with a great new Sony cell phone accessory, the Incipio Feather Xperia ZL case.


    One of the most interesting features of the ZL is that, for a 5-inch device, it's actually pretty slim. In fact, Sony claims it's the most compact such device on the market.


    So adding a ton of bulk to it with a clumsy carrying case wouldn't make much sense. But, as with Incipio's Feather case for other phone models, their Xperia ZL case is notably lightweight. Actually, it's their lightest and slimmest case.

    But don't let that fool you into thinking that it's not also tough as nails. Its high-density polycarbonate construction means the Feather is great at protecting your phone from bumps and shocks, and of course from scratches too. And it also includes a screen protector to keep all sides of your device clean, protected and scratch free.


    As far as Sony mobile carrying cases go, you'd be hard pressed to find one that's as in tune with the design of the device it protects. With a smooth, matte black finish and a shape that barely deviates from the phone's original contours, the Feather XPeria ZL case is as close as it gets to not using a case at all, in terms of looks. Lightweight, and with a "barely there" look, we'd vote that it's one of the best accessories for one of the best Sony cell phones we've seen yet.

  • This week kicked off with a bonanza of Nexus news from Google

     


    Hurricane warnings mat have put an end to Google's plans for an October 29 event, but Android fans won't have been disappointed with what Googled offered up on Monday instead: a bonanza of news about their highly anticipated upcoming Nexus devices.


    In lieu of an event unveiling, Google has simply made an announcement online, confirming what most of us have been suspecting for some time – A Samsung-made Nexus 10 tablet, and an LG-made Nexus 4 smartphone.


    The rumors of an LG Nexus 4 smartphone have been confirmed by Google

     


    The fact that the new gadgets couldn't be revealed live didn't seem to lessen the impact of the announcement, as major news organizations and leading tech sites jumped onto the Nexus news en masse.


    Now, we're breaking down all the latest talk to give you the major points of this dual announcement.


    Release dates and pricing:


    Both the Nexus 10 tablet and Nexus 4 phone will be available as of November 13 in the U.S and Canada, as well as in several European countries and Japan for the Nexus 10.


    Google's pricing the unlocked LG Nexus 4 at 8GB for $299, and 16GB for $349 or $199 through T-Mobile with a 2-year contract.


    Specs and reviews:


    There's already been a lot of positive reactions to the Nexus 10.


    With a slightly more curved body than most of us had anticipated, the entirely Samsung-made tablet has a 10" display that Gizmodo's calling better than retina at 300 pixels per inch.


    Inside, it boasts a a dual-core 1.7GHz Samsung Exynos processor, 2 GB of RAm, and is available in either 16 GB or 32 GB models.


    Powered by Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean), it's also got front and back cameras and front-facing stereo speakers.

    As for the new LG smartphone, the Nexus 4 also runs on Android 4.2 and, like the Nexus 10 tablet, has gotten good reviews, with Gizmodo claiming "it might be the best Android phone yet."


    A collaboration between Google and LG, it bears a lot of resemblance to the LG Optimus G, but has a more rounded body, better software, and new features like PhotoSphere and Gesture typing.


    Behind its 4.7", 320 ppi screen, it's got a quad-core 1.5 GHz Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, 2 GB of RAM, and comes in either 8 GB or 16 GB models.


    A couple of other strong points are its 8 megapixel rear-facing camera, and the fact that it supports wireless charging.


    If you're looking for detailed specs, TechCrunch has a pretty complete list for both devices here.
