With the Nexus 7 and Nexus 9 soon arriving in customers’ hands, developers need to update their apps for the new Android Lollipop. Since developers won’t be getting those devices earlier, Google has released a new developer preview for the Nexus 5 and Wifi Nexus 7. This is not the final build of Android Lollipop, so if you are going to flash it to your device, do not expect it to run perfectly on your device. So unless you want to deal with bugs, avoid flashing this preview onto your main phone or tablet. The final version will...

If the new Nexus 6 isn’t attractive to you because of the larger screen size or any other reason, Verizon has a great deal for you. Starting today and lasting until October 20, the new Moto X is half off. With the ability to customize the design of your phone to your liking at $50, this is a great deal. If you want a Natural or Leather back though, the cost will be $25 more at $75. That is still cheaper than $125 for the normal price though. If you want a new Moto X on Verizon, now is a great time to buy one. Hopefully this deal...

Unnamed sources have reportedly confirmed Google’s plans for the rollout of Android 5.0 for its Nexus devices. And strangely, it seems like the tablets will be first to receive the update, even before the smartphones do. Google is believed to be rolling out the update to WiFi only devices first, which leaves out the cellular models of the Nexus 7. Other Nexus devices like the Nexus 4 and the Nexus 5 should get the update before the end of November. Compatible devices include the first gen Nexus 7, the 2013 Nexus 7 and the now forgotten...

The HTC Nexus 9 tablet was expected to go on pre-order today, but it seems like Amazon couldn’t wait as its pre-order listing went live last night. The tablet can be snatched in 16 and 32GB configurations with a price tag of $399.99 and $479.99 respectively. The 32GB LTE model of the tablet is yet to be made available, so customers can only get their hands on the WiFi models as of now. The Sand/gold color variant of the Nexus 9 is not available unfortunately which means your color options are limited to black and white. We’re...

Yes, that title is correct. The AT&T variant of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 has finally gotten its KitKat update. The Wifi variant got the update back in May, so this has been a long time coming.

These are the full release notes: Android OS Version upgraded to 4.4.2 with all Security patches Beat Music app pre-loaded GMS apps update...

Even though the Nexus 9 is now official and we won’t have to wait anxiously for Google to show it off, we haven’t quite had a good look of the device yet. But thanks to a new set of hands on images and a video coming from Vietnamese sources, all has been revealed about the latest Nexus tablet. Needless to say, the Nexus 9 doesn’t disappoint as far as the looks are concerned. With a thickness of just 7.9mm and a brushed metal frame, it’s clearly one of the better looking Nexus devices we’ve seen so far. The...

With the final version of Android 5.0 Lollipop coming to consumers hands soon with the Nexus 6 and Nexus 9, other manufacturers are readying software updates for their own non-Nexus devices. Motorola has already confirmed that a majority of their older phones will be getting updates, and now HTC has as well. So far, they have confirmed that both the original 2013 HTC One (codenamed M7) and the 2014 HTC One (M8) will both be getting Lollipop updates within 90 days of HTC getting the final code from Google. @nickmgray We're aiming...

With the Nexus 6 and the Nexus 9 going official earlier today, Google has now posted promotional videos for both the devices giving us a better idea of its features. The Nexus 6 promo video details the large AMOLED display and the 13-megapixel OIS camera on board the device, while the Nexus 9 video is targeted towards the professionals which shows off the keyboard case as well as the lightweight nature of the tablet. The video also specifies the use of a 64-bit NVIDIA Tegra K1 SoC on the Nexus 9, which is set to topple some benchmark...
