Google 's mysterious Android 5.0.1 release has now landed on its Nexus smartphones after a brief period of exclusivity on their larger tablet kin. This maintenance release, build number LRX22C to be specific, is now available for the Nexus 6 and the Nexus 4 . Strangely, no image is up for the Nexus 5 , and Google continues to be rather silent about this particular release.
Last week, Amazon marked down the Nexus 9 price in time for Black Friday. It was sold from $399.99 down to $349.99. We have no idea how many units Amazon sold but we know many people who want the HTC-made Android tablet. The Keyboard Folio case for it already went up for sale on Google Play, listed at $129 for the basic black model.
On one of the earliest rumor articles regarding the recently launched Google Nexus 6, a number of things were predicted that have been realized by Motorola (the maker of the phone, if you didn’t know) – this includes the gigantic 5.9-inch screen , the codename “Shamu” (the whale) , the November release, and that it would come with what is now Android 5.0 Lollipop.
More than a week after we learned that the HTC-made LTE Nexus 9 tablet would be delayed , here’s T-Mobile saying that the Android tablet is now available via the Underground site. The latest Nexus tablet launched last October is being offered for the first time in the United States with a plan with no downpayment but with a monthly fee of $24.99 under a two-year contract.
A software bug that causes AT&T -branded Nexus 6 units to randomly reboot, or to not boot up properly has caused the US mobile provider to recall the newly-launched unit from those who have already bought from them, and also send back their remaining inventory of the Google flagship phone back to Motorola (who manufactures the phones).
Ready for your Black Friday shopping marathon? You don’t need to be in your favorite stores physically, fight over the goods, and fall in line for hours because there’s online shopping. Of course, your success will still depend on your clicking speed. As usual, Amazon has got some great deals for everyone.
The circle seems to be complete and Google has finally uploaded the rather mysterious Android 5.0.1 to the Nexus 5 as well. This practically finishes the release of this rather unexpected Lollipop update, which first began with the Nexus tablets and then the Nexus smartphones, sans the Nexus 5, at least until now.
The Nexus 6 is now available on U.S. cellular. This one is the biggest of the family we've seen, compared to its Nexus siblings. The new smartphone comes off the line with a large 6-inch Quad HD display screen. Is it too large or are phones these days just getting bigger? The Nexus 6 operates on the latest Android Lollipop with Qualcomm 's speedy Snapdragon 805 quad-core 2.7GHz and Adreno 420 GPU.
Google pushed , rather silently if not for a few keen observers, a minor update to Android Lollipop yesterday. While details on the nature of this update is still unknown, factory images for Android 5.0.1 are already available for Nexus tablets and for those who feel a bit more adventurous.
If you're dying of envy of those who were able to get their hands on a rare Nexus 9 or an even rarer Nexus 6 , now might be your chance to catch up. In fact, you might even be able to one up those who have gone out and bought the new Nexus devices already.
