This Week in the Life of Droid: 11/1/2013


Has this been the biggest week of the year in Android? Quite simply, the answer is yes. We have a brand new Nexus device to look forward to playing with next week, a completely revamped version of the world’s most popular operating system to learn and master, and the DROID Mini is now for sale through Verizon in the color of Red. Okay, maybe that last part isn’t that exciting, but it was still a fantastic week to be an Android lover.

If you missed any of the awesome news, check the highlights we have down below.

Have a fantastic week, folks!

    Nexus 5 in route! What happened to that post Kellen teased about a few weeks ago breaking down all the options for people jumping off the Verizon ship? Still trying to figure out the best option for me.

      Looks like a Nexus 7 with a smaller bezels, thus a larger screen. Either a new screen size for the “small tablet” segment or just a Photoshop oversight. I’m going with the latter.

      • grumpyfuzz

        Probably is, because honestly there’s no reason for the Nexus 8. Anyway I don’t see why Google would start hyping up a new product, but I could be wrong.

        Maybe there will be one with an 8.3 screen like the GPad

    When the n5 comes in and Kellen does the unboxing of what he already unboxed, can we get into device specific features on the n5? I think i missed something that will make it different among the pack. Or is the only feature being a nexus?
