Nexus 6 with VoLTE rumored to be coming to Verizon

While we're still waiting for the fulfillment of the promise that the Nexus 6 is "coming soon" to Verizon but a new rumor has already started that it's not just the latest Google-powered Motorola-made phone that will be available to the carrier's subscribers. Yes, the Nexus 6 will still be coming, but it will be with a brand new Android 5.1, which means it will be the first device to have the latest update to Lollipop, if the rumors are to be believed.

Nexus 6 now on Amazon, Moto E soon with Verizon (maybe)

Motorola has been on a smartphone roll of late, being the OEM of choice for Google's Nexus 6, and receiving good reviews for their newer handsets, including the mid-range Moto E. The main problem has been availability though, as they usually run out of stock and people have to search far and wide (well, on their computers at least) if they want to get a unit, specifically for the Nexus 6. But now Motorola is widening their reach, with both confirmed and rumored news.

CM12 arrives for Nexus 9, new nightlies for Motorola Droid Bionic

The Nexus 9 is Google’s new standard for tablets – a fine device produced for the Nexus line by HTC. Like its smartphone cousin, the Nexus 6, both flagship Google devices were the first ones launched with the Android 5.0 Lollipop operating system. It was just a matter of time before it got its own CyanogenMod version. That time is here and now, as CM12 now has nightly builds for the Nexus 9.

Android 5.1 Lollipop for Android One, Nexus devices in the works

If you're waiting for Android 5.0 Lollipop to arrive on your smartphone or tablet, I'm sorry but looks like Android 5.1 will soon catch up. This could be frustrating but at least we know Google is working fast on making things sweeter and better for the Android fans. The rumored Android 5.1 was recently spotted on the Android One page for Indonesia. This 5.1 could be the Android 5.0.3 already and Google must have changed its naming convention yet again. (Or could be a typo?)

Verizon Nexus 6 coming soon

Okay, so the Nexus 6 is becoming more popular not because it's such a great device but because it's been getting delayed. Mobile carriers like US Cellular , T-Mobile, and AT&T have announced good deals but most of them have been delayed or are out of stock or have been recalled. We don't know what's really happening but Google blamed the Nexus 6 delay for the company's slow growth during the last Q4. Google Play is listing it online but ships three days later. Just recently, Verizon posted the Nexus 6 with a "coming soon" sign.

Nexus 5 is back in stock, in black and with sizes

Although it seemed that Google was hunkering down on its device offerings, at least those it sells through Google Play Store, it might be making some concessions in light of recent revelations. It has quite silently switched the 2013's Nexus 5 to back to "in stock", perhaps to offset the difficulty in procuring a Nexus 6. Together with the Nexus 6 and the Nexus 9, these three devices seem to be Google's final Google Play Store lineup as far as smartphones and tablets are concerned.

Lollipop images out for Nexus 7, both 3G and LTE versions [UPDATE]

For those of you who are still using your venerable Nexus 7 – be it the 2012 3G only version or the more recent 2013 LTE version – this is probably good news for you. Google has released Android 5.0.2 Lollipop images for your devices – this is no joke. The mothership has finally decided that it’s probably time to bring you up to speed as you’ve been languishing in KitKat loneliness all this time.

Low supply and delay of Nexus 6 caused Google’s Q4 slow growth

It's that time of the year when big companies are releasing their earnings reports for the previous quarter. Yesterday, we learned about Qualcomm's positive numbers for the first quarter of its 2015 fiscal year. And a few hours ago, it was Google's turn to make an earnings call and show off how the search giant is doing the past quarter. Chief Financial Officer Patrick Pichette shared the highs and lows and noted that Google didn't hit the goals because of the low Nexus 6 supply and the exchange rate between international consumers and the United States.

Apple may have bitten off Nexus 6’s ‘missing’ fingerprint sensor

It turns out that Apple may have been responsible not just for the seeming current downturn in innovating its own products, but contributing to some "missing" parts in the competition as well. Notice that cute "dimple" behind Google's Nexus 6 -- manufactured by Motorola hence the dimple has Motorola's logo? Well, news has come out that it should have been a tappy fingerprint sensor. But circumstances have been so that Motorola wasn't able to include that in that final design.
