Nexus 7 shoved in Google homepage pocket

Nexus 7 shoved in Google homepage pocket

The Google homepage, traditionally a rather stark white sort of place, has had a rather front and center location updated to include a link to the company's current hero tablet, the Nexus 7, up for sale in their online store. The space below the search bar (which has also had a bit of an update recently) has been reserved traditionally for only the most important of updates - September 11, 2001 news on the day it occurred being one example. Today Google's placement of a portal leading to their one and only Nexus tablet has been met with some resistance by the very vocal fans of said page online.

Nexus 7 magnetic sensor spells trouble for Google

Nexus 7 magnetic sensor spells trouble for Google

Just yesterday it was revealed by an intrepid magnet-holding developer in the wild that the Google Nexus 7 tablet had a magnetic secret - and today the fear begins for Google (and/or ASUS). The manufacturer of this tablet, ASUS, certainly must have considered that the magnetic display shut-off embedded in this device would ruffle the feathers of the likes of Apple as they've been using similar techniques in their notebooks and the iPad 2 for some time - but do ASUS or Google need to be worried? Perhaps not.

Galaxy Nexus sales frozen: Google promises imminent fix

Galaxy Nexus sales frozen: Google promises imminent fix

Google has pulled the Galaxy Nexus from its official Play store, no longer offering the unlocked, HSPA+ version of the Samsung smartphone after Apple convinced a judge to preserve its preliminary injunction. As of this morning, the Galaxy Nexus listing shows the handset as "coming soon" with a sign-up box for notifications; exactly when it will go on sale is unclear, though some suggestions indicate a workaround might mean that happens sooner rather than later and Google has promised it will hit shelves again sometime next week.

Meet the Nexus tablet (before Google announces it)

Meet the Nexus tablet (before Google announces it)

This week we've once again had an above-average amount of tips being pointed directly at the idea that the next Nexus device that will be released by Google will also be made by ASUS. This device will be a tablet, as confirmed by Google's Eric Schmidt back in January with his "six month window" comment. This device will certainly be an example for Google's next big operating system update, will more than likely have a 7-inch display, and it will cost users just $149, per an ASUS tip as well as NVIDIA's own Kai Strategy which takes their quad-core Tegra 3 processor down below $200 USD.

Intel Medfield phone benchmarked: Bests Nexus but trails Tegra 3

Intel Medfield phone benchmarked: Bests Nexus but trails Tegra 3

Intel were keen to push their Medfield platform at MWC 2012, announcing various partners, and even a product that would make it to retail, the Orange Santa Clara. The Atom Z2460 single-core processor is clocked at 1.6Ghz, with the phone being able to perform such feats as taking ten photos in under a second, as long as 1080p playback and Intel Wireless Display. But how does the performance really stack up against other phones with only a single core?

Verizon Galaxy Nexus Review

Verizon Galaxy Nexus Review

Here in the LTE version of the newest Google hero phone, the Verizon Galaxy Nexus (also known as the Samsung Galaxy Nexus or Galaxy Nexus 4G LTE) has not only the unique claim to running Google's newest mobile operating system Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich first, it's also connected to the fastest network in the states, and best of all: you can go to your corner Verizon store and purchase one, unlike the international edition. All that said, you've really got the same device only ever so slightly modified for this particular carrier: Google's vanilla hero phone remains nearly as pure as its first release internationally. What you're going to get here is another perspective on the Galaxy Nexus in general, how ICS handles our day to day, and what it means to own the LTE version of this device here in the USA.

Verizon Galaxy Nexus Gaming Demo with Riptide GP and ShadowGun

Verizon Galaxy Nexus Gaming Demo with Riptide GP and ShadowGun

There are a couple of games out there right now that show off the graphics finesse of whatever platform you play them on quite well, and in quite an easily comparable sense when it comes down to it, those being Riptide GP, a jet-ski racing game, and ShadowGun, a 3rd person shooter - today we've got these games being demonstrated on Verizon's LTE version of the Galaxy Nexus. This device is the first to work natively with Google's mobile OS by the name of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and runs a Texas Instruments OMAP4 1.2GHz dual-core processor. Is it enough to compete with such gaming titans as the ultra-powerful NIVIDA Tegra 3 quad-core processor toting ASUS Transformer Prime, or perhaps the iPad 2 for good measure?
