Is the Google Play edition program dead?

Google Play edition devices were supposed to be a branch of the Nexus program, where OEMs like Samsung or HTC could peddle their stripped-down wares for us all. Don’t like TouchWiz? Great, keep the hardware and enjoy a GPe Galaxy S4. That was the plan, but it doesn’t seem to have gone so well. With the Google Play edition Galaxy S4 leaving the Play Store, we’re left with one option, and a program that seems to be in decline and on its way out.

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.

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.

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?

Nexus 6 from AT&T accidentally revealed

Nexus 6 from AT&T accidentally revealed

Before your heart starts to skip a beat, know that this might have just been an innocent error. Either someone pressed the "Publish" button too soon or actually messed up in typing in details. Either way, those errors are leading to some hope that AT&T might have some space reserved for the Nexus 6, possibly immediately after its official launch even. If true, this would make the Nexus 6 the first ever Nexus smartphone that will be sold directly by the carrier.

Nexus 6 details and a DROID for Verizon

Nexus 6 details and a DROID for Verizon

This morning we dug into the FCC documents for Motorola’s next big release. Really big, as it were - a full 6-inches of display to take on the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and the iPhone 6 Plus. We’ve heard rumors that Google would pick up Motorola’s next big release as a "Nexus 6", working with 6-inches of display. We’ve also heard that Verizon would be getting the device on their carrier. What we hadn’t heard so far - but what we can basically (nearly) confirm without Motorola saying so is that Verizon’s model will be the same, but with DROID branding.

Are there two Nexus devices coming this Fall from Google?

Are there two Nexus devices coming this Fall from Google?

There is a lot of discussion about Apple’s two new iPhones, where we are almost certainly getting a 4.7-inch screen, then a 5.5-inch model later on. There is another hotly anticipated product lineup coming out this Fall, though, in Google’s Nexus. We’ve heard a bit about the Motorola Shamu being the new Nexus, but could you handle two Nexus smartphones?
