Kernel Toolkit makes tuning your kernel easier (root required)

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?)

Google Android One devices to launch in Indonesia Packing Android 5.1

Google has been hawking Android One devices in some areas of the world for a while now with mixed success. Android One is the name for an entire series of low cost smartphones powered by the Android operating system.

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.

More Now cards on Google app coming your way

The Google app for Android has been receiving regular updates lately. That's not surprising because Google is really serious with mobile users getting the most out of search and their devices. The app's Now cards are just a few of the features that provide relevant information to people even without searching or asking for it. Google automatically shows Now cards what it thinks would benefit the user.

Google’s Project Tango tablet moving closer to reality

That’s one small step for a tab, one giant leap for all of its kind: Google has recently announced that Project Tango, a high-powered concept tablet enabling the user to recreate reality in digital form, has taken the next step towards actual realization by graduating out of its Advanced Technology and Projects (ATAP) division. That means that Google is actually thinking about the device's marketability and real-world applications.
