Huh. Will you look at that. It’s not breaking news by any means, but only a few minutes ago Google updated the device page of the Play Store with only a very small change to their Nexus 4 listing. Previously, the caption describing the Nexus 4 read “the best smartphone.” While that statement is definitely up for debate, today they’ve now updated the listing to read, “the first Google smartphone.”
At first glance it would appear they didn’t want to step on anyone’s toes, after all, HTC and Samsung who are sharing the same page with the Nexus 4. Then again, “first” doesn’t make much sense either. It’s widely accepted that the T-Mobile G1 (HTC Dream) was the first Google smartphone. One could even say the Nexus One — which was the first Nexus device — could possibly take that title as well. Just what’s going on in that head of yours, Google?
