Google Nexus 4
This is the 4th Google Nexus handset known as Nexus 4 and it is made by LG. The screen is huge now at 4.7″ with resolution of 1280×768 (320ppi), back camera is now 8MP, processor is a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro 1.5GHz (quad-core) and RAM has been bumped to 2GB. It also includes wireless charging using any Qi-compatible charger. Do note that LTE is not supported in the Nexus 4.
Also Apple seems to be dropping the “the new iPad” name from iPad and it is now called “iPad with Retina Display” which is similar to the MacBook Pro’s “MacBook Pro with Retina Display”.
Elevation Dock was the 8th Kickstarter project that I backed. I backed it this year on the 7th February 2012 and the project got funded on the 12th February 2012. They raised a total of US$1,464,706 out of the initial goal of just US$75,000. It was supposed to be shipped in April 2012 before iPhone 5 was announced but unfortunately, there was a delay and I only received it 6 months later on the 18th October 2012.
I pledged US$79 for the Elevation Dock+ in glass bead blasted finish. The Dock+ adds shielded Line Level audio out plus USB power adapter and for international shipping it is an additional US$20. Paid a total of US$99 (S$121).

Nokia is looking for Nokia Lumia and Nokia smartphone owners to take part in the shoot for a Nokia TV commercial and they will be asked to talk on camera about why they love their Lumia or smartphone devices.
They are looking for people of all nationality’s but they MUST be living in Singapore.
I don’t think it is out in retail stores yet, probably in a week or two, but I expect it to be out of stock the moment it is available in stores, like what happen to the Apple Lightning to USB Cable.
