Nexus 9 now available, ships in 1-2 days

Yes, you've read that right. The first of the next generation of Nexus devices is finally marked as available, in stock, and shipping in just a few days. Of course, you might be able to get it sooner if you buy from a retailer like Best Buy. The launch of the Nexus 9 heralds the start of the availability of devices based on Android 5.0 Lollipop. It hopefully also marks the date of availability of the latest Android version as well, which means older Nexus devices might be receiving it soon, too.

HTC RE camera in orange is delayed

HTC RE camera in orange is delayed

HTC's L-shaped RE Camera, recently announced earlier this month, is offered in multiple colors: navy blue, teal, white and orange. Those who decided to take the plunge by pre-ordering the camera might be in for some bad news (if they opted in for the most popular color): orange is sold out and thus has been delayed. While, in a way, the status is good news for HTC, which is apparently seeing solid demand for the RE, it is bad news for those who were pining to get their camera soon.

HTC Desire 820 Camera Testing Hands-on

We've had our first afternoon's outing with the HTC Desire 820 and we've come away impressed. While we did have some hands-on time earlier this year with this mid-range hero, we've been itching to get some camera time. That time is now, and the selfies are here. This is the device you'll remember as the first to roll out with a 64-bit octa-core processor under the hood and an eventual update to Android 5.0 Lollipop - but for now, it's all about the camera.

Hugo Barra’s iPhone 6 double-talk just means Xiaomi is awesome

Former Googler Hugo Barra is an interesting guy. Once charged with holding up impressive new hardware on stage for Google, he’s now a VP in a new country, with a new company, and seems to be on his heels more than he’s on his toes of late. This time, Barra took to the WSJ.D conference to share his feelings on everyone that isn’t Xiaomi. Though you can take his word a variety of ways, one thing is certain: Barra is saying what we’re all thinking.

Nexus 9 hands-on – Google’s tablet grows up

A new HTC tablet has been a long time coming, and so the Nexus 9 takes no chances, HTC partnering up with Google to make not only the Android retort to the iPad Air 2 but a showcase for what Lollipop can do when given more than a smartphone screen. Replacing the Nexus 7 with a larger, more premium - and more expensive - version, not to mention retiring the Nexus 10 in the process, the Nexus 9 is also the first true 64-bit tablet running Android. I caught up with HTC for some early playtime ahead of its November release.

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?
