Nexus Player detailed for Android Lollipop

Nexus Player detailed for Android Lollipop

Without a doubt the strangest member of the newly revealed Nexus device bunch is the Nexus Player. This circular device is made by ASUS and comes with a remote control - and you can purchase a Gamepad for Nexus Player separately. They’re all made for one-another, creating an experience for your display - likely your television - that’s all Android Lollipop, all the time. Also this device effectively replaces Chromecast - at a different, slightly higher cost, of course - as ASUS’ device is "Google Cast Ready."

Nexus 6 official: here are the details [Update]

The Nexus 6 is a big phone. Google is wisely marketing it as one with “more space to explore”, with “more sound to hear”. Still, a 6-inch screen encroaches on too-big for many users. The rest of the Nexus 6 is equally big, meaning Google has scaled their latest Nexus accordingly. Now that it’s out,we’re learning all about the newest Nexus flagship smartphone, and just what it brings to the table, officially. Oh, and hey, we’re finally getting Android Lollipop, too!

Android Lollipop, Nexus 6, 9, and Player all arrive!

You’ve been waiting for it, and now it’s here. The Nexus 9 has arrived, and is branded with a very small HTC logo at the bottom. All the rumors, all the chatter, it was all true. In addition to the Nexus 9, we are also getting the Nexus 6, a VERY Motorola product. In fact, it looks like a bigger Moto X, which is exactly what we’d heard it would be. As if that weren’t enough, a Nexus set-top box is also seeing the light of day.

Apple event predictions: 3D Apple, iPad Air, Mini, Yosemite

Several new bits and pieces are being tipped towards release this week as Apple’s next big event takes place tomorrow, the 16th of October. We’ll be there with bells on - and information releases as fast as you can read them. There we’ll see all manner of new devices, likely an iPad Air update, a new iPad Mini, and more than likely an official releasing of OS X Yosemite for desktop and notebook machines of all kinds - including a tipped new MacBook Air with Retina display - though that's just a less-than-respectable rumor.

Nexus 9 incoming: Nexus 5, 7, 10 leave Play store

This morning it’s become clear that Google means to move some inventory in a very short time. As they’ve done in the past immediately preceding the release of a new product, they’ve taken out the Buy button from several of their main products - Nexus 5, Nexus 7, and Nexus 10 - to make way for the next wave. What that’ll mean for you is a new Nexus 9, at least, and perhaps a new Nexus 6 to go along with it. The release of these devices to the play store will likely occur this afternoon.

Halo: Spartan Strike releasing cross-platform

The next Halo title will be a spiritual successor to Halo: Spartan Assault, but this time it’ll be coming with a single release schedule. In this case, it means you’ll be able to purchase it once, on one platform, and you’ll own it on the rest. You’ll be able to save the same in one location and pick up in another. This game will be released on Windows 8, Windows Phone, and through Steam (still on Windows) this December - very soon, that is.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Review: Phablet Refocused

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Review: Phablet Refocused

Samsung can’t afford to stumble with the Galaxy Note 4. The fourth-gen phablet arrives as Samsung wakes up to a new, and not especially rewarding, phase in its mobile life: the discovery that throwing a hundred designs at the market and hoping at least some of them stick no longer has the same sales success as it once did. At a time so fiercely competitive, Samsung can’t count on simply having originally created the Note 4’s segment to commend this latest model. It needs to deliver as much in the hand as its specifications promise to on the page.
