The Nexus Android Lollipop upgrade: winners & losers

The Nexus Android Lollipop upgrade: winners & losers

Nexus owners, get ready for an upgrade. Google has announced that most Nexus devices will soon be getting the upgrade to Android Lollipop, and while they didn’t come right out and say which would and wouldn’t get Lollipop officially, we’ve got a good idea. Via the Android Developer’s page from Google, we see the factory image postings for all Nexus devices. The usual suspects you’d expect to get the update are there, but some notable exceptions are raising some eyebrows.

Nexus 7, 4, 10 may yet get an Android L update

Nexus 7, 4, 10 may yet get an Android L update

This week the folks at Google responsible for sending binaries for Android to Nexus devices have done so for five devices, showing the Android L spread for the near future. When a binary is sent out across a range of devices like is has been today, it means that the same - or a very similar - build will be send to the collection. Android L is out as a Developer Preview for the Nexus 5 and the Nexus 7 (2013), and this week it’s been confirmed (not released, just confirmed) for the Nexus 4, Nexus 7 (2012), and Nexus 10.

Google’s 2013 Nexus 10 to source LG, leaked pics suggest

Google's 2013 reboot of its Nexus 10 tablet will be manufactured by LG and sell for £299 ($482), if these leaked pics are to be believed. They were apparently leaked by Spanish broadband and telecom provider Telefonica, as the "Property of Telefonica" watermark on the second pic would indicate. Together the allegedly individually sourced pics would confirm rumors the Korean manufacturer will be Google's go-to replacement of Samsung for the tablet (not Asus as was widely--and erroneously--rumored this last summer.

The Android 4.4 update is rolling out to these tablets today, and a promise in place that the Nexus 4 and Nexus 7 with mobile data will get the update in the near future.

Google disables translucent bars in Nexus 10 KitKat source code

Google disables translucent bars in Nexus 10 KitKat source code

Google's Nexus 10 tablet will not get translucent navigation and notification bars with the Android 4.4.1 KitKat update, which lets the wallpaper go full-screen from top to bottom as it does in the Nexus 5. Developers can activate the bars with a one-step code tweak, but it will not be the default. The lack of translucent decor may also indicate a bit more pervasive and subtle problem with the device.

Nexus 5 and 10 2013 imminent even as fakes appear

Nexus 5 and 10 2013 imminent even as fakes appear

This morning the 2013 edition of the Nexus 10 seemed (at first) to appear on Google Play with specifications galore - it was quickly realized by those with keen eyes for terrible fakes that the screenshots of this occurrence were fake. In other words - Google did not mess up and list anything on Google Play - but additional clues do continue to suggest that the device may be real anyway. One of these is the suggestion by no less than Google's Vic Gundotra himself. UPDATE: Nexus 5 now appearing in the UK and Netherlands.

Samsung Nexus 10 reboot: what to expect

Samsung Nexus 10 reboot: what to expect

Now that we've seen the boosts in the change-over from Nexus 7's original iteration to its reboot, and have heard Google confirm that Samsung will be taking command on a second Nexus 10, it's high time we went hunting for the build on this next-generation companion to the smaller tablet. While virtual ink on the announcement for the Nexus 7 isn't even really dry yet, it having been announced less than 24 hours ago (if you don't count the leaks), a new version of this tablet's 10.1-inch tablet companion can be given a run-down based on what we've seen from ASUS, the maker of the smaller slate.
