Lollipop update for HTC One set for Friday

Lollipop update for HTC One set for Friday

This Friday, the 21st of November, 2014, we'll be seeing updates to both the HTC One (M8) and the HTC One (M7) for Android 5.0 Lollipop. This is a bit of a delay compared to the original projected release date - early this week - but still jams in amongst the first in the industry to release such an update. At this time we're not entirely certain what the HTC One update to Android 5.0 Lollipop will entail, exactly, as it'll be the first in the industry to have more than just the basic Google-made Vanilla layout.

Nexus 4 Lollipop released: here’s where to get it

Nexus 4 Lollipop released: here’s where to get it

Good times are happening over at Google where they've not only gotten Android 5.0 Lollipop working for the LG-made Nexus 4, they've released it to the public. Just as the Nexus 5 and the Nexus 7 were given Lollipop this week, so too will Nexus 4 users be able to load it with ease. And if you're familiar with the Android SDK, you can load it right this minute. All it takes is a USB cord and a couple of quick code entries. If you know what that's all about, of course.

Three things that surprised me about the Nexus 6

Three things that surprised me about the Nexus 6

Is there anything more to say on the Nexus 6? Google's latest flagship smartphone has come in for more than the usual degree of attention, as the first handset to run Android 5.0 Lollipop. The fact that Google can't keep them in stock for longer than sixty seconds or so isn't doing anything to dampen the hype, either. I've already gone digging through Google's huge new phone in my equally huge Nexus 6 review, but it turns out the Motorola-made handset hadn't quite finished teaching me a lesson.

Nexus 6 Review – You want to lick this Lollipop

Nexus 6 Review – You want to lick this Lollipop

A new Google smartphone is a big deal, and the Nexus 6 is a very big phone indeed. Largest so far of Google's collaborations with handset manufacturers, and first to see Motorola take the Nexus reins - ironically just as the two firms part company - it's a riff on this year's Moto X but with a new turn of speed and a crazy Quad HD display. It's also the launch vehicle for Android 5.0 Lollipop on phones, arguably the biggest thing to happen to the OS in many generations. So, with supplies still frustrating all but the best-timed of buyers, is the Nexus 6 the Android phone you want in your pocket?

Nexus 6: where you can (and can’t) get one

Nexus 6: where you can (and can’t) get one

If you’ve been itching to get your hands on a Nexus 6, the wait is probably tiring for you. This time around, Google has broken the mold with their Nexus flagship. What used to roll out via Google Play, then take weeks or more to hit a carrier here or there is now this long, slow trickle from every avenue. The Play Store doesn’t even have reliable stock levels, and it seems at least one carrier is pushing their release back to give potential buyers a “better experience”.

Nexus 6 will have AT&T apps – sort of

The AT&T release of the Nexus 6 will have AT&T apps - but not right out of the box. Instead, according to an AT&T representative, the Nexus 6 as carried by AT&T will download AT&T apps the first time you connect to the Google Play app store. Every single one of these apps will be able to be un-installed if you wish. This is a new feature with Android 5.0 Lollipop - the ability to push carrier downloads to your device through the Google Play app store.

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.
