After weeks of rumors about the specs, price, and release date of the upcoming Nexus 5, it appears that Google's new Nexus Android smartphone is being listed on the Google Play store. The device appears next to the Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 along with the caption "Capture the everyday and the epic in fresh new ways." Google lists the price as "starting at $349." However, when the link to the smartphone is clicked on -- the new page doesn't load. And not long after the phone appeared, it was replaced by the older Nexus 4 again. Rumors have been flying the past few weeks about what Google has in mind for the Nexus 5. Supposedly, the device will run Android 4.4 KitKat and be revealed in the coming weeks. The smartphone has been said to cost anywhere from $299 to $399 for the 16GB and $449 for the 32GB. Just last week, the first third-party cases for the device were spotted on Google+. While Google has stayed mum about the official release of the Nexus 5, it appears that such a device is most likely on the way. Accessory makers are eager to get in on the action. Several Nexus 5 cases are on sale at Amazon, with the retailer saying they'll arrive in stock on October 30, October 31, including November 2. See below for some images of the products.

I am first of all upset at the terrible performance of my Galaxy S III's reception. Specifically it's radio. This is well documented in another post here and by the fact there is a rumor of Samsung replacing the phones. In the mean time I have been using my S III on CDMA only while at work and other areas where the data signal wasn't constant between CDMA and LTE. Band aid to a problem that should have been solved before releasing the phone. Today I started reading up on Samsung radio's because I have thought all along this is a hardware issue. The following articles are what I found and in my humble opinion, further my hypothesis. Back in December 2011, Samsung released the Galaxy Nexus under the guise of a Google phone. It was released on both GSM (AT&T, T-Mobile) and CDMA (Verizon/Sprint). The CDMA version was plagued with reception issues similar to the S III is having right now. I first found this article that explains in great detail why the radio in the Galaxy Nexus is inferior on CMDA. Read this, its a great explanation: http://mobilecentral...on_GSM_and_CDMA Then I found a forum post about how this specific radio plus Verizon's CDMA infrastructure equals problems. http://androidforums...zon-radios.html Not a objective post, but insightful none the less. Fast forward to now, We have S III users with no issues and others with major issues. My completely unscientific research and purely speculative opinion is: Samsung used the VIA Telecom CBP7.1 CDMA2000 baseband modem is some of the S III's and these are phones having problems. (Plausible but not probable). The baseband modem in the S III is another VIA Telecom and this one is having similar problems to the Galaxy Nexus on Verizon. (More likely). I could be completely off base here because Samsung could have used a Qualcomm modem in the SCH-R530 US Cellular S III. But I still think there are issues on the backend that CDMA providers like US Cellular and Verizon need to work out on switching signals between 3G and 4G between tower and phone. I apologize for the rambling, but I am disgruntled at the performance of my S III, US Ceullar's LTE spectrum, and CDMA in general.
