    Default What's the best Tablet and Phone combo

    Hello

    I am hoping to comeback to Android rather soon. I was wondering what is the best Tablet/Phone combo I am not after anything like the Padfone though that is a pretty neat feature. I am asking for which devices work best together?

    I am thinking about the Nexus 4 / Nexus 10 combo what other combos will work well?

    Advice would be much appreciated.

    Well in terms of tablets the best to get would definitely (in my opinion) be the Nexus 10 as for phones it depends on what you want with your phone. The Nexus 4 is a great choice though as it has amazing specs, pure Android and you'll get the latest OS upgrades first for the next few years.

    Xperia Z Combo?

    I don't think the latest updates really bother me that much as long as the apps I have work! Updates sometimes break apps for support and apps is highly important to me.

    I'm going to have to agree with Demonic on this. The Nexus 4 and Nexus 7, or Nexus 4 and Nexus 10 combinations are hard to beat.

    Rumour has it yes, that's why I'm waiting until Google I/O in may is over to see if it's announced.

    My personal opinion of the perfect combo would be an OEM Android device (I want LTE) and a Nexus Tablet for my fast update fix. Best of both worlds for me. I can live with carrier delayed updates to the OS on my phone because I'm a rooter and a tinkerer so I'm usually able to find and use apps from 3rd party devs that will imitate most of the newer features on newer Android versions.

    Tablets are a different story though since there's less tablet optimized apps available. Since I use my tablet much more than my phone for anything outside of GPS, music, and communication, I really want the new bells and whistles that may show up on newer versions of the OS on my tablet most. I can take care of that on my phone through other methods.

    As others have said, Nexus 4 and 7, or Nexus 4 and 10. If you choose the former, you might want to, as you yourself said, wait until Google I/O to see if a successor to the 7 is released.

    If I choose to be totally impatient I'm hoping that like the Nexus phones have been supported then the Nexus 7 should be supported the same?

    Nexus 4, 7, 10 should all get looked after with updates until Android Lollipop?

    Yes.

    Definitely until at least 5.0 or 5.1.

    I have ordered the Nexus 4 and a dbrand skin, I noticed them on another website before this, and a Poetic bumper as no official ones. Apparently customer service at Poetic is superb..

    Anyway now I have a decision to make do I go for the Nexus 7 or 10? I can afford either so that isn't an issue. Which one will be supported longer by both Google and the Developer community??

    Can'w wait for the Nexus 4 to get here.. oh Android how I have missed you... How long have people experienced for shipping? I'm in the UK if anyone knows.

    At this Google I/O you speak of, are there any rumours of a new Nexus phone or updating all of the Nexus devices?

    Google I/O last year introduced the Nexus 7 and Android 4.1 (Jellybean Version 1). Usually a new Nexus phone is introduced around about November time. I personally think they will introduce a new Nexus device 7 maybe a better screen a faster processer and a 64gb version. Who knows I haven't read any leaks recently...

    I am just about to be able to upgrade my phone in May and I am switching over to a new line on my families Verizon plan (from sprint). I was wondering if there might be a Verizon Nexus be announced.

    Nexus 4 is $299 sim free..I don't really know how it works in the US but I'm guessing Verizon is CDMA only?

    Sorry to tell you this, but there will most likely never be another Nexus phone on Verizon after the whole GNex debacle.

    Probably want to wait till the N7 2 comes out. However I agree with Demonic N4 and N7 are unbeatable. However, have you considered the GN2? That is kinda in between and probably costs less.

    It can be beaten by the N4 and N10. :P But both combos are awesome.

    Nexus 4 came in 2 days via TNT if anyone in the UK is wondering. Very happy with it so far. Still undecided on the tablet front. Thinking of possibly getting the Xperia Z tablet.. Decisions decisions...

    Currently have a nexus 5 and nexus 7...and love it despite being denied SD support from Google. Living Sense-Free and Touchwiz-free for the first time and it is awesome.
