Android HTC Nexus phone detailed in leak

The next Google Nexus smartphone has been leaked, somewhat, in the form of a set of specifications. These specs show an HTC-made device with modest abilities - not what we'd expect from the hero of the collection. This device would more than likely replace the Nexus 5X, the smaller of the two smartphones in Google's stores. It'd be the most basic of the devices you could purchase direct from Google.

The first Google Tango phone for consumers has been revealed - Lenovo PHAB2 Pro - and today we're having our first hands-on experience.

Lenovo Tango phone “PHAB2 Pro” release date and details

With the Lenovo PHAB2 Pro, the company becomes the first to detail a consumer-aimed Google Tango smartphone. This is the technology we've been demoing and hypothesizing about for months - even years - now come to a device that, fingers crossed, will be released in September of 2016. This device's implementation of Tango technology allows it to use motion tracking, depth perception, and area learning to know not only what it can see, but where it is in 3D space at any given time.

A new Nexus 7 Android tablet to beat your iPad

A new Nexus 7 Android tablet to beat your iPad

While the prospect of creating a piece of hardware that'd supplant the since-the-beginning biggest tablet ever iPad, Google's next device might be able to do the trick. Google is currently placing itself in a position in which it becomes more singular. The Google Play suite of apps has adopted a more visually standard look. Google's Play return program has become more active in the recent past. But what's that got to do with a tablet? Could Google finally be making a play for the space they've never dominated with a device that's just as powerful as the opposition? If the past couple generations of Nexus device are any indication, Google's in a prime position to finally make the real anti-iPad.

The other, an LG-made Nexus device with a 3D camera - not as cheap, but still running the next version of Android nonetheless. The LG-made smartphone won't necessarily be called "Nexus" - it might be released on completely different terms.

Google VR will give you Virtual Reality access this week

Google VR will give you Virtual Reality access this week

Google I/O 2015 tipped to be another send-off point for Google Cardboard, the company's virtual reality pre-brand. The stars are aligned. It's time for Google to treat Cardboard - and the virtual reality community in general - like the sleeping tiger it really is. This week at Google I/O 2015, Google is likely to reveal far more than they did last year, when the VR headset Google Cardboard was given away with barely a word on what it was capable of doing. This platform is about to blow open.
