The Google Nexus 360 Concept Phone

Concept phones have been revolving around the gadget world from quite a long time. This one seems different,, India’s largest gadget research website for mobile phones and personal technology has come up with the Google Nexus 360 concept phone.
At present changes are taking place in terms of how a user interacts with the environment around him. The evolution of mobile technology has been drastically changing. There was a time when we used mobiles to make calls. But now with the advent of smart phones, people are more connected to their loved ones. The rage of Social Media and that “Always Connected” feel gives people more comfort. There is a missing link that’s constantly drawing the Hardware Manufacturer’s to find the Ultimate Gadget. With Google releasing the Android Wear, people have started embracing this new era of communication. But the Android Wear also seems incomplete. These smart watches need to be connected to an Android Phone to and they only serve as a intermediate device.
This gap can be diminished if Google Nexus 360 concept comes to life. This concept is far more rational then the other concepts that are being developed. If Google Nexus 360 is made in real then the world of smart phones will get a refreshing new look and people more convenient mode of communication.
