This Week in the Life of Droid: 11/15/2013


Phew, what a week it has been here at DL and in the world of Android. To kick it off, Kit Kat OTA updates started rolling out for Nexus tablets, which folks have been happily downloading and enjoying. Motorola introduced the Moto G, a device with seemingly decent specs that will go on sale, without contract, for just $179. Game changer.

To top it all off, we saw more HTC M8 details hit the web, Moto’s CEO says Kit Kat will hit the Moto X within a couple of weeks, and a big Google Search update now allows for anyone running an Android 4.1+ device to use the Google Experience Launcher that is found on the Nexus 5. What a good week, indeed.

If you missed any of the craziness, we have listed all of the highlights down below.

Have a fantastic weekend, everyone!

    Question for Nexus 5 owners:

    So I finally found a black 16gig Nexus 5 at Best Buy. Haven’t bought it yet, just had them set it aside for me. They kept repeating that it’s on sprint, but I obviously ignored them as I know we can use the Nexus 5 on any carrier except Verizon. I’m currently using a Galaxy Nexus on Verizon, so I’ve never dealt with unlock phones and carriers.

    My question is: Do I need to unlock the device somehow to put it on straight talk or tmobile or att? If so, I’m assuming it’s fairly easy or do I just put the new sim in the phone and it’ll be good to go?

      You would be an idiot to buy it there when its a hundred bucks more.

      Why don’t you just wait. You’ll be kicking yourself later when you realize you could have saved that by waiting a couple weeks.

        I don’t care about 100 dollars when it “Leaves warehouse in 3 – 4 weeks” from the Google play store.

        I’ll be enjoying the phone tomorrow instead, and I’ve heard managers at best buy have been price matching the online price anyways. Either way, what’s a 100 bucks.

  • Although not too fussy but I found quite interesting and provide the most basic content. Really thank you.

  • Simple, but we can know the most basic issues.

      According to Tim, Kellen’s on vacation for a bit but it’s definitely in the works.

      Rumor has it that Kellen had a baby boy, so we may not see too much of him for a bit.
