It was nice while it lasted, but even at the time it was posted there was some scepticism surrounding the legitimacy of the device, but now the perpetrator of the hoax has put up a full infographic on the way the hoax was done. It’s a fascinating read over on the tumblr site Anatomy of a Hoax and I highly recommend you have a read.

Whilst it is a fake and there were a number of issues with the original photo that were pointed out by commenters on many sites including our own, there is a very old rumour that instead of a Samsung Nexus S we were supposed to get a Sony Nexus but that fell through for unspecified reasons. One thing that was made abundantly clear by this latest hoax is that a Sony Nexus device would be extremely welcome by many people. Come on Google and Sony get your act together and give us what we all want.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.
