It was only last week that the Nexus 9 was released in sand color and the LTE version was made available by T-Mobile last December after being delayed for some time. All good news and more as Google is finally bringing the Android tablet in Taiwan and New Zealand. That's two different countries so more people will be happy to learn that the Nexus 9 is now available in their countries.
Now that Chinese company Lenovo holds the reins over Motorola , it was only natural that the smartphone maker will be making its presence known in one of the fastest growing mobile market in the world. All that will start this year with the arrival of three Motorola smartphones in the Chinese market. But Motorola has one rather odd surprise to add to its other odd surprises last year.
We just featured the Ampere Smartphone Sleeve , a special sleeve that can charge your device. The project is currently on KickStarter aiming to reinvent the mobile charging experience. Here is another project on the crowdfunding site that brings more functionality to the smartphone: the ExoDrive Case. It's a smartphone concept that offers microSD card expansion for extra storage.
Whenever you talk about a Google device, it's hard to know where to assign credit: Google, or ASUS, the company actually building the thing in the first place. The second generationNexus 7may have cost $30 more than its $199 predecessor, but that cash seems to have all gone to make the hardware even better.
After Lenovo'sacquisition, it's a given that Motorola Mobility would eventually be making a comeback in China; and now we have confirmation of this, along with the announcement of a new, but familiar-looking model. After the Chinese New Year holidays (so toward the end of February), the phone maker will be launching the Moto X Pro, which is basically a rehashedNexus 6: 6-inch QHD display, 2.
Google Play edition devices were supposed to be a branch of the Nexus program, where OEMs like Samsung or HTC could peddle their stripped-down wares for us all. Don’t like TouchWiz? Great, keep the hardware and enjoy a GPe Galaxy S4. That was the plan, but it doesn’t seem to have gone so well.
We've seen Google Play Edition devices come and go from Play Store, usually in order to pave way for newer models. Today, the HTC One M8 GPE silently left the Play Store shelves just as had others before it. But this removal is quite noteworthy because of what it could imply.
Two weeks ago, we pondered the death of Google’s ‘Play edition’ program. At the time, Google Play edition devices had slowly been slipping away from the Play Store, with only the HTC One M8 sticking around. Now, Google has stopped selling that device as well. The Play Store no longer lists any Google Play edition devices, leaving the program itself without a single handset.
