Galaxy S5 Google Play Edition with Lollipop release imminent

While we did, honestly, expect the Samsung Galaxy S5 Google Play Edition to be launched several months ago at this point, it would seem that they’re finally ready to roll. With the launch of Android 5.0 Lollipop and the official preview we saw courtesy of Samsung itself earlier this month, there can’t be much time between now and the GPE. What with Google’s update of their Android homepage still including the elusive Google Play Edition of the Galaxy S5 alongside the new Nexus family, we have only to ask - what’s the holdup?

Nexus Player detailed for Android Lollipop

Nexus Player detailed for Android Lollipop

Without a doubt the strangest member of the newly revealed Nexus device bunch is the Nexus Player. This circular device is made by ASUS and comes with a remote control - and you can purchase a Gamepad for Nexus Player separately. They’re all made for one-another, creating an experience for your display - likely your television - that’s all Android Lollipop, all the time. Also this device effectively replaces Chromecast - at a different, slightly higher cost, of course - as ASUS’ device is "Google Cast Ready."

Nexus 9 incoming: Nexus 5, 7, 10 leave Play store

This morning it’s become clear that Google means to move some inventory in a very short time. As they’ve done in the past immediately preceding the release of a new product, they’ve taken out the Buy button from several of their main products - Nexus 5, Nexus 7, and Nexus 10 - to make way for the next wave. What that’ll mean for you is a new Nexus 9, at least, and perhaps a new Nexus 6 to go along with it. The release of these devices to the play store will likely occur this afternoon.

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.

Google mum on Android L name, but confirms it as 5.0

Android L is coming. Even if we don’t know what it will be named, or when it will really come out, we know it’s coming. More to the point, Google knows we know it’s coming, and they know we know they know it’s coming. Now that we’re all in some sort of tech-y spy-vs-spy espionage standoff, Google has taken to YouTube, producing a video that shows how they picked their new mascot. No offense to whoever wins, but we’re going with Oreo. Someday.
