Nexus

Google stepped into the hardware field in early 2010 with its Nexus mobile phones, later adding tablets. The mobile phone did not prove to be as popular as hoped and Google pulled the Nexus One from its Web retail store shortly after it was launched, with some blaming Google's lack of online retail experience for the flop. More recently, the Nexus 7 proved to be more popular, holding 12.7 percent of the tablet market.
