Nexus 6

6 more countries can now buy the Nexus 6

Just merely two weeks after the Nexus 6 was officially released in the US through Verizon, 6 more countries have been added to the growing list of those that can purchase this brand new Motorola-made device. Through the newly-launched Google Store site (an offshoot of the Google Play Store), those who live in Austria, Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Norway, and Portugal will now be able to experience the power of Google's newest smartphone.

Android 5.1 updated build, plus a rooted stock build now available

It was just recently when Google announced a new update for Android Lollipop – that is in the form of Android 5.1 which came out just around a week ago. But today we saw a new build of the Android 5.1 available for download for the Nexus 6 flagship phone, which more than likely means the build will start rolling out to other Nexus devices as well.

Nexus 6 runs on full quad-core after Android 5.1 update

Android programmer and Kernel hacker Francisco Franco has shared on his Google+ page that the device now runs on full quad-core mode all the time. This change has resulted to a faster and smooth operation of the Google Nexus 6 on Android 5.1. This is apart from the various Framework optimizations, code being cleaned, and the several ART improvements. This also means the unit will no longer 'hang' because according to Franco, the Kernel task scheduler now distributes workload through all the cores.

Google to stop selling Nexus 5 on its Google Store

As Google prepares to release the highly-anticipated Nexus 6, what will become of its predecessor, the Nexus 5? Well apparently, it will slowly go away and sink into oblivion until it is eventually forgotten. Okay, nothing as dramatic as that, we promise, but it is indeed the end of the line for the smartphone as Google will reportedly stop selling the Nexus 5.

Verizon announces Nexus 6 coming to network by March 12 [Update]

Well, it looks like all those leaks and rumors were accurate, as Verizon Wireless announced that the Nexus 6 is indeed coming to their network, starting March 12. It is also the first device to have the updated Android 5.1 Lollipop, which gives it the ability to support Advanced Calling 1.0, or calls using Voice over LTE (VoLTE). This is pretty exciting news for those who want to get their hands on the Motorola-made newest Nexus device.

Google Wireless will probably only work with Nexus 6

While Google SVP Sundar Pichai confirmed rumors that they are indeed planning a wireless service, not much details are known about it, like which carriers are involved, what devices will run it, when it will be available, etc. But now sources are saying that the tech giant is looking at a launch by the end of March (which is just a few weeks away!) and that the only devices that will be able to enjoy this are the latest Nexus devices, starting with the 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.
