Android 5.0 image for 2012 Nexus 7 leaked

The new Nexus devices are out, well except for the Nexus 6, and with them come Android Lollipop. Naturally, we expect that Google's previous Nexus devices will be the ones to get the update before anyone else. What we did not expect, however, is that the older 2012 model of the Nexus 7 would actually be the first to get it. Well, at least unofficially via this leaked flashable image that can be downloaded from Google's servers.

T-Mobile delays Nexus 6 launch for a week

It seems that the Nexus 6 availability problem isn't confined to Google Play Store only. As the date for the launch the first Nexus phablet draws nearer, T-Mobile suddenly pulls back from the lineup. The carrier has now just announced over at its Twitter feed that it will be launching the Lollipop-bearing smartphone on November 19 instead, which unsurprisingly leads to no small amount of frustration from its customers.

Pre-orders for Nexus 6 with Lollipop on AT&T starts Nov 12

If you want to be one of the first to own a Nexus 6 which will be running on the new Android 5.0 Lollipop, then you can either switch to AT&T or if you're already a subscriber, get another line of service through their Next program. The carrier announced that pre-orders for the smartphone, which is actually the first Nexus device on their portfolio, will start by November 12, through their online store and also in their retail stores.

Nexus 6 expands to 12 more countries, still not available

Google has just very silently added a dozen more markets that will be receiving the new Nexus 6. That is, at least when the smartphone actually becomes really available. While it is definitely good news to see that Google is expanding initial availability to more than just a single country, the continued absence of the device only serves to increase anxiety, and perhaps even a bit of resentment, which could very well color the public's opinion of Google's first ever phablet.

Nexus Player and Android TV get new sports content

Sports fans wanting another place where they can keep up with their favorite teams will be glad to hear that they can now watch live NBA games on the Nexus Player. The NBA Game time app is now on Google Play. Fans will need a NBA League Pass to watch games via the app.

Android 5.0 rooted on Nexus 9 already

Well, that didn't take long. After only a few hours of the Android 5.0 factory images from the Nexus 9 tablet being available to the hacking public, someone has already rooted the device. That someone is Chainfire from XDA Forums. Not only did he root the device, he also created a 64-bit build of the SuperSU binary.

Nexus 9 gets an iFixit teardown: handle with care

The Nexus 9 is now available for our hands to hold and, of course, that means that it's also available for a good old-fashioned iFixit-style teardown. While Google's Nexus devices are quite well known for their purity and openness, that apparently only applies to the software. On the hardware side, the Nexus 9 proved to be a rather tough customer, earning it one of the lowest repairability scores we've seen on an Android device.

Google to replenish Nexus 6 stocks every Wednesday

The Nexus 9 and the Nexus Player have both formally launched but the Nexus 6 is still curiously unavailable. It seems that Google indeed has inventory issues based on their latest update about the smartphone. The Android maker promises to move quickly to fill inventories to meet the presumably high demand for the device and has tipped users to check every Wednesday for that update. Those who want carrier subsidies however, will have to wait later in November to get theirs.

Nexus Player now available, compatible games lined up

And it’s officially selling – the Nexus Player, that is. If you haven’t come across this device yet – although we’re not sure how that would be possible – this is the first Android TV set top box being pushed by Google and was manufactured by ASUS. We’ve speculated on its availability for a time now, but it’s finally available.
