Such device could be a major hit on the emerging markets, and Googe has already acknowledged that, all thanks to Motorola’s Moto G success.
Google Nexus is one of the most attractive smartphone series right now, and thats because Google has managed to maintain an affordable price while deliviring top-notch hardware, and with over 1 billion active smartphone users world-wide right now, and other 5 billion waiting to migrate from feature phones to smartphones, a under $100 Nexus phone with the latest Android OS version could easily become the best-ever selling phone.
