Motorola’s Nexus 6 sales trigger angst; UK prices confirmed

Motorola’s Nexus 6 sales trigger angst; UK prices confirmed

Motorola has begun sales of the Nexus 6, while Google has confirmed pricing for the much-anticipated smartphone in the UK. Unsurprisingly, given the Android Lollipop device's relatively high cost - at least from what we're used to from a Nexus - in the US, those in the UK won't be getting a cheap phone. Meanwhile, in a move that seems destined to prompt no small amount of ire among would-be Nexus owners, Motorola is keeping its stock secrets until the very end.

Google to release Nexus 6 stock each Wednesday

Google to release Nexus 6 stock each Wednesday

Almost as quickly as it went up for sale, the Nexus 6 was out of stock. A confusing scenario, we wondered just what was going on. Did Google shut down orders until they could parse the first batch? Was there just a limited quantity? Did that many people really want a phone with a 6-inch screen?! We were all in the dark, but it seems at least one of those questions was right. Google’s quantity of Nexus 6 smartphones seems to be trickling in, and in limited quantities.

Nexus 9 hits digital shelves in several configurations

The same day Google has dropped the embargo for the Nexus 9 non-review they've also released the device for sale. This machine is only going to be offered through the Google Play Devices store for now, but eventually it'll see action in physical stores across the United States and the rest of the world. This device is the first HTC-made tablet to be part of the Android Nexus lineup and the first tablet to run Android 5.0 Lollipop - not to mention the first Android device to run with 64-bit processing.

This is the Nexus 9, Android Lollipop’s tablet vanguard

This is the Nexus 9, Android Lollipop’s tablet vanguard

Google's Nexus 9 faces more than a few challenges. Not only does it have the job of following Google's well-esteemed Nexus 7, which for two generations gave Android tablet fans an affordable and bag-friendly option, but it also serves as flag bearer for Android 5.0 Lollipop on a tablet form-factor. Throw in the fact that it also marks HTC's long-awaited re-entry into the slate segment, and that it's the first true 64-bit Android tablet courtesy of NVIDIA's Tegra K1, and that's a whole lot of pressure resting on one 8.9-inch iPad rival. So, how does it hold up?

Nexus Player Review – Android TV’s awkward debut

Nexus Player Review – Android TV’s awkward debut

The living room has proved to be a challenge for Google. The company which has been so successful in dominating so many of the screens we interact with on a daily basis - our computers, phones, and tablets - has perversely struggled for that most traditional of displays, the humble TV. Google TV was flabby and confusing; the axe fell on the Nexus Q before it even went on sale. Only the Chromecast has had any measure of success, and yet just when we thought Google might have a strategy, along comes a different platform again, Android TV. Running first on the Nexus Player, but set to spread to smart TVs from numerous manufacturers, it’s Google’s fourth lounge reboot, but is it really necessary?

Nexus 9 now available, ships in 1-2 days

Yes, you've read that right. The first of the next generation of Nexus devices is finally marked as available, in stock, and shipping in just a few days. Of course, you might be able to get it sooner if you buy from a retailer like Best Buy. The launch of the Nexus 9 heralds the start of the availability of devices based on Android 5.0 Lollipop. It hopefully also marks the date of availability of the latest Android version as well, which means older Nexus devices might be receiving it soon, too.

Nexus 6 hands-on – A whole lot of Lollipop

Nexus 6 hands-on – A whole lot of Lollipop

A new Nexus is always a big deal, but the Nexus 6 is big in every sense. Google and Motorola opted to go large for the latest pure-Android smartphone, giving Lollipop a vast 5.96-inch 2560 x 1440 Quad HD touchscreen in which to ply its "Material Design" wares. In fact, the Moto X stylings carried over from Motorola's own-brand flagship are deceptive, and side-by-side there's a considerable difference between the two. Google has kept the real magic for itself, nonetheless, and the Nexus 6 is shaping up to be as capable as it's coveted.
