Strategy Analytics: GaAs Device Market Rings Up Record Revenues in 2013
September 20, 2014
Ongoing growth in cellular and Wi-Fi applications will continue to drive GaAs device revenues higher. According to a company release, the recently released Strategy Analytics Advanced Semiconductor Applications (ASA) Forecast and Outlook report, "GaAs Industry Forecast: 2013- 2018" and the accompanying spreadsheet model forecasts further growth in the GaAs device market in 2014, before competitive technologies and trends act to reduce the growth rates.

Google Nexus 5 Rumour Roundup: Expected Features, Price and Launch Details.
October 20, 2013
  Just a few days ago, search engine giant Google did a little goof-up by accidently revealing the price of the company's upcoming smartphone Nexus 5 on the official Google Play store.           We are not sure if (http://www.ibtimes.co.in/articles/514965/20131018/lg-nexus-5-google-play-price-specifications.htm) Google's faux paus was a genuine accident or an intentional gimmick but it has certainly gained interest among fans.

Google Nexus 5 Video Leaked Ahead of Launch.
October 13, 2013
  France-based online retailer 'Club SFR Smartphones' has released a video, purported to be of the upcoming Google Nexus 5 running on the Key Lime Pie (aka v4.4 Kit Kat) OS, just days ahead of the official launch.       In the seven-minute long video, an anonymous user shows the alleged Nexus smartphone from different angles, some of the applications (Camera, Google Earth and more) and the settings configurations.       Even though it looks credible enough to believe that this handset might be Nexus 5, there are few anomalies in the video which suggest this may be a prototype model. For instance, the phone's back-cover does not feature the 'Nexus' logo embellishment carried by the smartphone on the Google Kit Kat statue unveiling video. As the user goes through the settings options, we can see that the OS version says Key Lime Pie, not v4.4 Kit Kat.           Adding weight to the argument, certain applications (Google Photos, app drawer, search app and others) were missing some additional features which were rumoured to come in the new OS, reported Android Police.
