Here’s your Cheat Sheet to this week’s top tech industry business headlines:
Google (NASDAQ:GOOG): Current price $807.34
Some rumors have it that Google’s Nexus 5 handset will fall short of the latest speculation for an LG “Megalodon” handset, according to phoneArena.com. Difficulties in the production of 1080p mobile OLEDs could be one reason, considering that even Samsung hit a number of problems making the one on the Galaxy S 4, and also because modern mobile chip-sets use dual channel memory, and to have 3 gigabytes of RAM, two 1.5 gigabytes modules must be placed and addressed.
The Financial Times reports that Google might now be into smart watches. The watch is said to be under development by the Android division, perhaps indicating that Google views it as a more immediately viable product, and according to FT’s source, the Google watch is separate from Samsung’s newly-announced effort.
