Google to launch two Nexus phones but no tablet this 2015

We've been saying that Google might release two new Nexus phones simultaneously but we're silent about the next Nexus tablet. Truth is, we haven't heard any information yet and looks like we know the reason why: there will be no Nexus tablet this year. After Huawei was tipped to be manufacturing the next Nexus phone, LG was soon rumored to be making another Nexus phone. We're expecting two units this year and we'd probably hear about them at the upcoming Google I/O conference.

Rumor: Android M to have new update guarantee for Nexus devices

You’ve heard of the Android update initiative that failed a couple of years back, right? Well, just so we’re clear from the beginning, this is not that. According to well-placed sources, Google is planning a new set of update guarantees as the new “Android M” version of its mobile platform rolls out. This will particularly affect Google’s Nexus devices.

Moto X (1st Gen) to get Android 5.1 maybe in a few weeks

Moto phones always get the first Android Lollipop updates. That's expected ever since the Moto G was the first to get Android 5.0 officially and because of Google and Motorola's previous partnership. We already noted that four more Moto phones were being prepped to receive Android 5.1 and the Moto X (1st-gen) was included in the list. No need to wait that long if you own this smartphone model and no need to be clueless and frustrated because the software upgrade already started its TestDrive phase in the United States and Latin America.

Nexus 7 no longer available on Google Store

It looks like the reports are true regarding the fate of Google's Nexus 7. You won't be able to find the tablet anymore in the Google Store as it has officially been discontinued since last Friday. This has been coming about since last fall, after the release of the Nexus 9, so it's not really a surprise. While you can probably still find one if you look really hard, removing it from the Google Store lessens its availability.

Google expected to launch new wireless service tomorrow

As early as 2012, we learned that Google could be working on a wireless service and was rumored to be in partnership with Dish Network. However, the idea was soon debunked or was discontinued early on because according to a Google executive, regulations blocked the company from entering the phone service market. Google Fiber was launched the same year and still no sign of a wireless service until a year later when a similar rumor surfaced. And now, Google's wireless service is finally expected to launch tomorrow, April 23, Thursday.

Nexus Player first to get Android 5.1.1 factory image

Our week started with us sighting an Android Audio Latency info page with some reference to what could possibly be Android 5.1.1 Lollipop for the Nexus 9 and WiFi Nexus 7. These are the first two devices being prepped by Google for the latest software update. Of course, it's expected that a Nexus device will get it first and looks like the version is ready to roll out with the Nexus Player getting it ahead of other Android phones and tablets.

Android 5.1.1 Lollipop almost ready for Nexus 9, WiFi Nexus 7

Android 5.0.2 for Galaxy S6 edge ready soon for download

The Samsung Galaxy S6 edge has finally arrived. After all the stress tests and numerous drop tests, Samsung has proven that the Galaxy S6 edge is one durable smartphone. We're expecting more good news to come the S6 edge's way including the latest Android 5.0.2 Lollipop which we previewed last February both the smartphone and the Galaxy Tab S version. The sweet Lollipop update to the dual-edged flagship phone includes minor updates to the manufacturer's proprietary apps like the S Planner, photo editor, and the TouchWiz ecosystem.
