Google’s Nexus 7 has been a hit, surpassing its expectations, and setting the bar higher for other tablets. However, we couldn’t say the the Google Nexus 7 doesn’t come without any flaws, including a missing back camera, and no 3G connectivity. The latter of these problems will apparently be fixed, in the next 6 weeks, as is rumored. If Google is already fixing one problem, maybe they’ll fix something else. What do you think?

Chinese online sources claim that Xiaomi might be releasing its successful phones in Europe as early as Q1 2013. The real question behind this statement is whether Xiaomi has the capabilities to expand its market in a completely uncharted area. Just to start off, Xiaomi will have to invest a lot of money in advertisement in Europe as not a lot of people are familiar with the brand. Finally, the funny part about this story is that Xiaomi has about 1.3 billion people in china to sell to, but that’s not good enough for them, of course.
