Android 5.1 detailed, rolls out to Nexus and T-Mobile

After a bit of speculation and waiting, Google has finally given official word about the Android 5.1 update. Although it's a slightly bigger version bump than the maintenance releases, this upgrade isn't as spectacular as initially believed. That or Google is keeping things under wraps, leaving some treasures for us to discover on our own. That said, there are still a good number of changes in 5.1 that will appeal to both OEMs and users whatever the tier, from emerging markets to more seasoned ones.

Google’s MVNO vision reported to only see the Nexus 6

Google’s MVNO vision reported to only see the Nexus 6

When Google's Sundar Pichai drew associations between it's planned cellular service and the Nexus program, we didn't quite expect him to mean it literally. But that might just be the case based on reports coming from sources close to the matter. According to them, that MVNO network will only work with Google's Nexus devices. In fact, it might even only work on the latest generations, starting with the Nexus 6 and leaving older devices to survive on their own with regular mobile carriers.

Sundar Pichai: Google has carrier plans, but think Nexus-scale

Sundar Pichai: Google has carrier plans, but think Nexus-scale

Google will indeed light up its own MVNO network in the coming months, SVP Sundar Pichai has confirmed, but it's more like the Nexus of wireless than a strike at AT&T and Verizon. Rumors of Google-controlled wireless cellular service have circulated for some years, surfacing again in January with speculation of a direct-to-user network which the search giant would use to test out new mobile tech. According to Pichai, while there is indeed some truth in the Google MVNO chatter, it's not quite the same as a play for the market as a whole.

Rumor: Verizon to get VoLTE-ready Nexus 6 in March

Rumor: Verizon to get VoLTE-ready Nexus 6 in March

About three weeks ago, Verizon listed the Nexus 6 as ‘coming soon’ on their website. We assumed that meant we’d see big red with the big Nexus in days, but we’re still without a Nexus 6 via Verizon. A new report suggests the Nexus 6 for Verizon is still coming, but will hit the nation’s largest carrier after MWC. Purportedly launching March 12, the latecomer might usher in a new era for Android fans, and bring Android 5.1 to the world.

Nexus 6 now ‘coming soon’ for Verizon

Nexus 6 now ‘coming soon’ for Verizon

The Nexus 6 has had a funky fate so far. After being released in limited runs, it seems to have caught up for the most part. You can order it from Google Play, but it leaves the Warehouse three days later. AT&T is selling it online, and after sending all their Nexus 6 stock back to the warehouse to fix a software bug, stores are starting to get it back. Now it seems as though Google's big smartphone is ready for big red, and will be coming to Verizon soon.

Google blames growth stall on Nexus 6 supply

Google blames growth stall on Nexus 6 supply

During Google's Q4 2014 earnings call this afternoon, the company's Chief Financial Officer Patrick Pichette spoke about the many ups and downs of the past three months. In explaining the downs of this past quarter, Pichette spoke of two points in particular. One was the Exchange Rate between the United States and international consumers. The other reason Pichette gave for Google not hitting goals they'd set for themselves was the less-than-stellar supply they had with the Nexus 6. Pichette also mentioned Google Glass, as it were, as an example of what Google does when a project doesn't work.

Blame Apple for the Nexus 6’s missing fingerprint sensor

Blame Apple for the Nexus 6’s missing fingerprint sensor

Apple may get blamed by many for trampling on innovation, but it turns out the company - or at least its rapacious supply chain - was to blame for the Nexus 6's cute-but-dumb dimple. The branded divot beneath the current Android flagship's camera may act as a handy place to rest your finger, but it was meant to be a far more useful location for a fingerprint sensor, according to former Motorola chief exec Dennis Woodside. Now at Dropbox, Woodside confirmed in an interview recently what many had suspected since the Nexus 6 was first unveiled.
