    Man that Android console would be AMAZING if the tablet and phone games were ported to run on it with a Bluetooth controller. As well as exclusive console only titles. Put an A15 chip, 2GB RAM, with a Mali T604 GPU, HDMI out, and that thing could run some awesome games.

    “… Windows Phone matching Android in market share. Really?” Somewhat misleading title, as the data reflect the experience of only one carrier, in only one country (which just happens to be the home of Nokia Windows Phone!)

      Good thing we’ve repeatedly had information pushed to us so we know better. And thank Google for their transparency reports

    I’m not surprised about the Ebay story. I bought the Google Ion for $650 on Ebay after they gave it away at IO.
