Google Play Newsstand code identified in Play Store 4.4

In their ongoing teardown of Play Store 4.4, Android Police have found multiple mentions of a "Play Newsstand" that could turn out to be a one-price news subscription service similar in structure to Play Music All Access.

Google’s Nexus 7 stops orders due to demand

Google has decided to stop taking orders from its online store, assumedly because it has such a huge backlog it doesn't even know when it will be able to fulfill new customer purchases. The 16 GB $249 tablet had been showing up as being delayed for one to two weeks. As of now, though, it's impossible to place an order. The 8 GB model, at $199, is still available for orders.

Nexus 7 popping up in stores and mailboxes across USA and UK

It's time to grab your Google Nexus 7 tablet - but only if you were lucky enough to have set up a pre-order with Office Depot, Gamestop, or a 3rd party retailer lucky enough to have picked up an early shipment. That's not to say that Google has allowed such business, but for those of you actually finding a way to grab this tablet today: kudos to you. It's being reported on several Android blogs and forums that not only are pre-orders from the Google Play store arriving across the USA and the UK, GameStop and Office Depot have them in stock as well - again, only for pre-orders, of course.

ICS 4.0 hidden Android Dreams feature hands-on

Google is a place where even though their slogan may no longer have to do with the doing of no evil, they certainly do a lot of good AND have a lot of fun - case in point: a hidden feature in the newest version of their mobile operating system Ice Cream Sandwich by the name of Android Dreams. This feature is otherwise known as Rocket Launcher or "RocketLauncher" for those of you buzzing around the hacker circuit, and what we've got courtesy of our pal Cory from Android Community is a hands-on experience with this new way of looking at your apps.

Google Nexus Plus: Somewhat of a Reality?

Google Nexus Plus: Somewhat of a Reality?

When I say Nexus Plus, you know I mean Nexus+. We've got a rumor here published by one above-average unbelievable source, that being a "G00gle Plus" account on Facebook that publishes information like a real source only to get followers - and heck, why not? Such things can be fun, right? Only here's the catch: their newest update has some really REALLY juice information you'll not be able to get anywhere else, it's no copied-down watered-down re-release like the rest of their statuses. This newest status says they've seen the newest Google Nexus device, and they're saying that this "Nexus 3 (name not finalized)" will have "the special one click sharing button for Google+."

Sprint / Motorola Event on June 9th [Piet Mondrian Themed Dual-Core?]

We and the rest of the press of the world including Android Community have just been invited to an event in New York hosted by Motorola and Sprint. This event, given the brands attached to it, will certainly play host to a new device manufactured by Motorola and carried by Sprint - but that's all we know. We can certainly make some educated guesses, on the other hand, and several guesses as to what we'll be seeing is just what we happen to have. First of all, it's been said that a re-branding of the DROID X2 is on the way with the name Photon 4G attached to it, carried by Sprint. Seem reasonable?
