Nexus Q media streamer was short-lived, and canceled shortly after being revealed at last years Google I/O event. With no word on a replacement at this years show, we're now seeing its successor hit the FCC. A new Google device branded as H840 DEVICE has cleared the FCC this week (product code H2G2-42, an apparent play on The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy) and it has our interest piqued.

NVIDIA officially announced their new Project SHIELD gaming device would go up for sale in June. We confirmed on Tuesday morning that SHIELD would be available for pre-order starting on May 20th for $349, but today we have even better news. Thanks to a big demand and social buzz, they've moved the date up to today.
Google I/O this year. Many were saying Android 4.3 or 5.0 Key Lime Pie, a new Nexus 7, and even reports of a 4G LTE powered Nexus 4 for all carriers. However, as you all know, this year went very different from years past. Google focused on developers, and didn't drop a new version of Android, or any new hardware. Don't worry though because good things come to those who wait.
Google I/O the Mountain View company released their new and improved Hangouts, which aims to replace Google+ Hangouts, Google Talk, and other messaging services. As usual, Google's loaded the app full of Easter Eggs, and as expected they are quite fun. Be careful though, you could irritate friends and family quite fast with all these little tricks.
Google I/O began yesterday and kicking the event off was the over-sized keynote. This years keynote seems to have been a bit different as compared to previous years. We had heard rumblings about that before I/O began, however it seems most were in denial and still hoping to see lots of hardware announcements.
Google I/O brought tons of exciting new features and news in the world of Android. Sadly, there wasn't new hardware or that Nexus 7 redux we've been talking about as of late. Many rumors and leaks suggest a new Nexus 7 is coming, but Google didn't unveil anything. However, their new Google+ Hangouts video released yesterday might have just given us our first glance.
GALAXY S 4 without Samsung's software tweaks, Google and Samsung have delivered. Now that the big first day at Google I/O has ended, many are wondering what new hardware will be available. And Samsung's GALAXY S 4 Nexus Edition is it. With Google's Nexus devices not supporting 4G LTE, and even the latest only being 720p, this is how we'll get the best of both worlds.
Google I/O is going on full steam right now, and Google has just finished up the keynote full of announcements. So is there anything that Google didn't announce this morning? Absolutely. There is plenty that was expected that wasn't announced, but there's also plenty that wasn't announced that is probably new we'll be spotting all week long. For now, lets talk about what didn't happen.
Google+ Hangouts were announced earlier this morning during the keynote. At that time Google had said this would be arriving today and true to that statement, the app has since come available in the Google Play Store. The app has arrived as Hangouts and it will replace the Talk app already installed on your device. As we saw earlier, Hangouts is a cross-platform messaging app and allows for text and video chatting.
