Re: A good opportunity to sell stock at cost and look big'n'caring

Comment about the 3G only, fair enough, although I don't know anyone using 4G in the UK anyway.

Release Dates;

Nexus 4 Release Date = November 13th 2012

iPhone 5 Release Date = September 12th 2012

I've not heard of any Nexus 4 availability problems for months, I know that when I ordered mine in February it arrived 3 days later.

I always found it perplexing and when given an iPhone to type a message on spent a few seconds pressing the shift key to turn off the caps lock!

Re: why bother?

Especially not with ownCloud's client constantly using 100% of one core for larger data stores. I'm sticking with it though, just hoping it improves.

Re: I wish the Nexus 4 did have a button.

I'm glad I'm not the only one to do that. It does feel lovely having the glass back but means you can't ever be sure it'll be where you left it when you put it down!

Re: Bit optimistic

Same here, I switched a few days ago. Such a pity.

Apple 'less innovative' at laptops than Lenovo

Re: For me, Apple has a significant advantage

I'd second that, apart from a problem using the official ATI Driver and Unity I've never run into a problem. Even then removing the offending driver removed my problem and the OpenSource driver works fine!

Re: Where should I start

I have the same charger as the one in the review and was initially disappointed when my HTC Desire seemed to only be charging at 500mA. After a quick google, a pair of scissors and some electrical tape to short the d+ and d- wires together it charges at 1A quite happily. You just have to remember not to use this cable to plug into a computer as apparently it may damage the USB ports by trying to draw too much power through them.
