This week the folks at Verizon have revealed release time and pricing for their version of the Nexus 6. This version of the Nexus 6 will come with Android 5.x Lollipop and will be rolling with the same 6-inch Quad-HD display and dual front-facing speakers that the first version of the Nexus 6 did. It's the same, but different.
Android programmer and Kernel hacker Francisco Franco has shared on his Google+ page that the device now runs on full quad-core mode all the time. This change has resulted to a faster and smooth operation of the Google Nexus 6 on Android 5.1 . This is apart from the various Framework optimizations, code being cleaned, and the several ART improvements.
That phone you were no longer interested in is now officially dead to us all. In making their announcement of the new Pixel, and revamping their online hardware portal to reflect all they’ve got to sell you, Google also quietly discontinued selling the Nexus 5. The device was originally kept on as an offering to those who wanted Nexus, but didn’t want to tote around a 6-inch screen all day.
Just merely two weeks after the Nexus 6 was officially released in the US through Verizon, 6 more countries have been added to the growing list of those that can purchase this brand new Motorola-made device.
Just as Google said they would, Verizon apps have appeared on the Nexus 6 after the device's update to Android 5.1. As it was foretold at the dawn of Android 5.0 Lollipop, so it has come to pass: Nexus devices with carrier apps onboard. Just like it was in the past. Just as it shall be in the future.
When Google's Sundar Pichai drew associations between it's planned cellular service and the Nexus program, we didn't quite expect him to mean it literally. But that might just be the case based on reports coming from sources close to the matter. According to them, that MVNO network will only work with Google 's Nexus devices.
While Google SVP Sundar Pichai confirmed rumors that they are indeed planning a wireless service , not much details are known about it, like which carriers are involved, what devices will run it, when it will be available, etc.
We first laid hands on the Nexus Player back in November of last year when we reviewed the device. It's a round large puck-like device connects to your TV and marks the debut of Android TV. The device is designed to sit atop your TV and stream all sorts of digital content that you know and love to your big screen.
As Google prepares to release the highly-anticipated Nexus 6 , what will become of its predecessor, the Nexus 5? Well apparently, it will slowly go away and sink into oblivion until it is eventually forgotten.
Supposing you've got a Nexus device in your possession, you know the thrill of getting an Android update. Not just any Android update, one that brings a full extra digit to the tens spot after the five. This isn't a new desert - it's a .1 for your Lollipop. Google has begun posting Android 5.
