Nexus 6

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.

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.

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.

Motorola returns to China with new Moto handsets

Lenovo's acquisition of Motorola Mobility from Google is finally complete. This means Lenovo can now do almost anything with the company including announce and release the latest Moto smartphones in any market. The parent company is bringing Motorola back in China especially since it is an emerging market when it comes to mobile device usage. Three new Moto devices will be arriving in China very soon: the Moto X, Moto X Pro, and the Moto G 4G LTE.

Time to double down on the Double Nexus Giveaway

Just because its CES 2015 doesn't mean we've quite forgotten what already exists in our small corner of our world. But in case you might have been a wee bit distracted by all the shiny and cool stuff spewing forth from Las Vegas, you might want to settle down a bit, take a few deep breaths, and check whether you've already put in your entry for our Double Nexus Giveaway, which is quickly winding down.

Android 5.0.1 lands on Nexus 5, T-Mobile pushes to Nexus 6 too

The circle seems to be complete and Google has finally uploaded the rather mysterious Android 5.0.1 to the Nexus 5 as well. This practically finishes the release of this rather unexpected Lollipop update, which first began with the Nexus tablets and then the Nexus smartphones, sans the Nexus 5, at least until now. In the meantime, T-Mobile has also received the update and has started pushing it to both the Nexus 5 as well as the more current Nexus 6.
