A lot has been made about the Nexus line of devices the last few months, mainly in relation to the rumours that it is going to be replaced in favour ofsomething that is called Android Silver sometime next year.
Having seen no reference of a new Nexus tablet mentioned at Google I/O , hope was deflated that the various leaks we’d seen about the Nexus 9 , or even the Nexus 6 and Nexus 8 , were false claims. However, it seems the codename of what is believed to be the Nexus 9 is still cropping up.
Concerns that Android Silver will mean an end to future Nexus devices is unfounded, Google's head of Android engineering Dave Burke has said. Though he wouldn't talk about Android Silver, he was very clear in his statement: "We are still invested in Nexus.
Yesterday during the Google I/O keynote, Google announced the latest version of Android, simply named L . The actual name for the latest OS version has yet to be announced, but earlier today, Google released the Developer Preview.
Google may probably have showed part of its hand regarding its Android L device update lineup when it sent binaries out today for devices. We already know that the Android L Developer Preview is available for the 2013 version of the Nexus 7 and the Nexus 5.
This week the folks at Google responsible for sending binaries for Android to Nexus devices have done so for five devices, showing the Android L spread for the near future. When a binary is sent out across a range of devices like is has been today, it means that the same - or a very similar - build will be send to the collection.
OK, call me boring but I like my smartphones to look understated and elegant. So when it comes to choosing what color I want my hardware to be I will always go for the black option. Lately we are seeing many manufacturers turning towards bold or fancy colour schemes for their devices. @evleaks has uncovered apic of what could be a black HTC One M8 lurking out there.
