When KitKat arrived, one of its lauded perks was the inclusion of the Google Now launcher, which takes Google's handy feature and makes it easily accessible with a swipe from the left. Starting today, those running a Nexus or Google Play Edition handset can grab the launcher from the Play Store.
Just this morning a set of photos of the box for the Verizon version of the Nexus 7 were leaked, now here in the afternoon we're seeing the real deal. Verizon will be releasing the Nexus 7 (2013) starting on the 13th of February where the device will be available for the cool $349.99 online and in real-life store locations. This price is off-contract, while attached to a 2-year contract the device will cost $249.99 USD - placing it in a rather interesting place amongst the rest of the Verizon-bound tablets today.
This week a set of photos shows the Verizon 4G LTE certified version of the ASUS-made Nexus 7 from Google appearing in the flesh. This is after months of the device being in limbo after having been suggested to work with every kind of 4G LTE in the country at launch. Verizon, it would seem, has just now gotten to the point where they'll be selling the device on their own. Google, it would seem, will not be selling the device directly.
It's difficult to capture the tone of the red Nexus 5, that much is true. While we'd expected this tone of the machine to be offered up in a color that was close to the cases that were available from day one, we didn't truly thing Google would go all-in. As it turns out, they absolutely did - this is a smartphone you're going to have difficulty losing track of.
Google's red version of the Nexus 5 has arrived in the Play store, offering a third color option for the Android smartphone. Oft-rumored over the past few weeks, the "Bright Red" Nexus 5 is functionally identical to the existing handset, which is offered in black or white, but gets a more eye-catching finish.
The Nexus Q is the orb-like media streaming device that Google launched a while back. We haven't heard much from the device since then. In fact, the last time we talked about the Nexus Q was when the device was announced to be no longer available via Google Play last summer.
It hasn’t been long at all since LG launched its high-end smartphone called the Nexus 5. We have already reviewed the Nexus 5 smartphone if you want more details on how the device performs. Despite having been available for only about a month, it appears that LG has made some hardware revisions.
This afternoon a bit of light has been shined on the next generation in Google's play for the living room, a device code-named Nexus TV. This machine has been chatted about over the past couple of years, moving in and out of talks on Google TV, the company's current headliner television product alongside Chromecast. What Google TV lacks, Nexus TV will make up for - this isn't a product Google is going to be taking lightly.
