LG Needs To Make Nexus Phone Count

LG is one of the world's biggest electronics companies. Its been trying to crack the smartphone market for a while now - with little if any success. Doesn't matter whether its Android or Windows Phone, the first 3D phone or anything else for that matter, LG just can't catch the market's imagination.

This then, represents its big play for credibility, for these blurry shots (and disguised back panel) hide the new LG phone alleged to be the next Nexus device, heralding the arrival of Android 4.2 from Google.

The appeal of a pure Nexus phone is that it represents the fast track to Android system upgrades, as new versions appear. All the same LG are going to have to deliver something special at a time when the smartphone market is weighed down with an embarrassment of riches.
