Nexus 9 hits digital shelves in several configurations

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 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.

United is replacing headrest screens with tablet holders

United is replacing headrest screens with tablet holders

First world problem or just plain common sense when flying: United Airlines is redesigning its seats so that passengers will be able to prop up a tablet and yet still have space on their tray-table for their in-flight meal. While it might seem flippant, it's part of a push by United to shift entertainment over to personal devices rather than necessarily outfitting every seat-back with a built-in screen.

Nexus 6 hits the FCC, Nexus Player Gamepad now available

Nexus 6 hits the FCC, Nexus Player Gamepad now available

Ever since Google messed up the FCC approval for the Nexus Player, the tech world seems to have gotten a slight obsession about monitoring the arrival of Nexus devices at the government agency. Those who are rooting for the phablet instead of the Nexus 9 tablet can probably now breathe a sigh of relief as the Nexus 6 has finally been added to the FCC's listings, clearing the way for the smartphone's pre-order, which, barring any last minute hiccup, should happen on the 29th.

Nexus 9 hands-on – Google’s tablet grows up

A new HTC tablet has been a long time coming, and so the Nexus 9 takes no chances, HTC partnering up with Google to make not only the Android retort to the iPad Air 2 but a showcase for what Lollipop can do when given more than a smartphone screen. Replacing the Nexus 7 with a larger, more premium - and more expensive - version, not to mention retiring the Nexus 10 in the process, the Nexus 9 is also the first true 64-bit tablet running Android. I caught up with HTC for some early playtime ahead of its November release.

Nexus Player gets FCC stamp of approval, still out of stock

Nexus Player gets FCC stamp of approval, still out of stock

The Nexus Player was the surprise newcomer that Google unloaded when it announced the expected next generation of Nexus devices. The rather quirky multimedia set-top box, or circle rather, wasn't apparently done surprising us. As quick as it had come to pre-order availability in Google Play Store, it was quickly marked as out of stock, speculated to be due to FCC regulation issues. Now, however, the Nexus Player has been spotted in FCC's database, paving the way for its return and, hopefully, its eventual launch.

Is Nexus too big and expensive, now?

Is Nexus too big and expensive, now?

The Nexus 6 smartphone and Nexus 9 tablet are official, and available for scrutiny via the Play Store. The two newest flagship devices from Google are also big; bigger than the devices they replace. Are they too big, though? Is the price Google is asking too much? Both new Nexus represent a new direction for the platform, but has Google turned some fans off? A lot of criticism has been levied against them for these two big, more-expensive-than-your-usual-Nexus devices — but is it fair?
