A smartphone bonanza hit the shelves in November – the most important of which was undoubtedly Google's flagship Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich handset, the Galaxy Nexus. We loved the display and speed – and the implementation of Android 4.0 – but felt the 5MP camera was a bit of a let-down for a flagship phone.
Windows Phone 7.5 Mango wasn't neglected in the rush of new smartphones, with the Nokia Lumia 800 – the first phone designed for Mango – released. We were duly impressed, calling it "one of the most desirable phones we've seen in a long time."
November was also a key month for gamers, with several big releases arriving in time for Christmas. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim wowed us with its expansive fantasy world, while Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3's new multiplayer breathed new life into the blockbuster franchise.
But it was a trailer that really got gamers talking in November – as Rockstar Games unexpectedly dropped a headline-grabbing bomb in the form of the trailer for Grand Theft Auto V. We can't wait.
