    The same I can say to Apple, Big screen smartphone trend was started by Samsung and now Apple is copying it. The point, your statement does not make sense.

    *I personally feel that there is only one nexus tablet in the works which might be the nexus 8 rumored to be produced by HTC which might come with a metallic frame and the rumored 2k display.

    *There might be chances of Google bringing 64 bit support in future versions of Android like Android 5/4.5/ because Google recently unveiled a tablet for its project Tango with the nvidia tegra K1 CPU on board which comes with either a dual core 64 bit Denver CPU or a quad core cortex A15 CPU.Now its remains to be seen which CPU gets implemented but if the 64 bit CPU does get implemented it would make sense that Google might plan on supporting 64 bit architecture in future versions of android and given the complex calculations regarding 3D data that tablet would have to perform and the 4GB of ram the device is coming with it might make sense for Google to provide a 64 bit CPU onboard and thereby support 64 bit in future android version.Apart from that seeing how Qualcomm has invested in a variety of 64 bit processors ranging from mid end to high end there are high chances of Google providing 64 bit support for the upcoming android version and here is hoping that the same happens.

    *However one thing to be noted is that even if the 64 bit support comes to android it might be of use only to a limited number of people given how low the general uptake of the newest version of android generally is.I mean it has taken so many months for kit kat to finally have a double digit market share whereas in case of ios 7 the uptake has been tremendous and the share which iphone 5S constituted in every quarter of shipments was very well above 30% giving developers enough initiative to produce a 64 bit app however in android because of low initial uptake developers might not be that enthusiastic regarding 64 bit support and that might act as a spoiler.

      Can you tell me, Which smartphone is the best alternative of Laptop ?

      • Rama June 7, 2014 9:40 am

        *I agree that smartphones have come a long way now and are like mini PCs in our pockets but they still cannot replace our laptops completely bro.For example lets say you are an architect so you might need to use a program like auto cad on your computer or laptop for drawing designs etc etc and the same cannot be done on the tiny screen of your smartphone.Similarly lets say you are an accountant in a company who uses tally now you obviously cannot use tally on your smartphone even if you can,,you cannot do it with the same precision as your laptop.

        *It also depends on what you do on your computer like for example if you only download songs watch videos and do some casual browsing then any mid to high end smartphones can help you do the same but don’t expect smartphones to be able to run programs like tally and auto cad.

        *f you’re looking for an alternative for your laptop then you can consider Microsoft’s Surface range which come with the full version of windows like surface pro 2 but I don’t know if they are available in India and even if they are they are gonna be damn expensive.Or if you’re more adventurous you can go for Asus fonepad 5 which acts like a android tablet/windows tablet/android laptop/windows laptop/android smartphone.But its not yet available and its also gonna cost you bomb.

        *If you don’t have any professional use then a smartphone is enough but if you do need something like tally or auto cad then better buy a laptop separately.

    Not excited about the nexus 8 but yes pretty excited about android 4.5

    64 bit was started by Apple. Now Google copying it.
    If Android 4.5 will work on 64 bit than it means that Moto E, G and X will not work properly on 4.5 and vice-versa.
