The Nexus 9 is also now official, and yes, HTC has made it. The Google-HTC reunion is real! (more…)
After being teased and released through a developer preview at Google I/O this year, Android 5.0 aka Lollipop has been made official by Google this morning.
Over 5,000 developer APIs have been released alongside the updated OS, and of course, users will begin to see Material Design take over their devices through applications and system settings. (more…)
Google just made the Nexus 6 official, and we thought it was only proper to give it an entire post just for itself. As was reported numerous times, the device is a massive whale, with a 6-inch display and is made by Motorola. It looks exactly like the renders we created for you a few weeks ago. (more…)
The DROID TURBO will officially be unveiled on October 28 by Motorola and Verizon. We know that because that’s what Verizon has told us through their DroidDoes.com site.

We were pretty sure we also knew most of the specs after seeing the user manual for the device surface at the end of last week, along with a tip about the battery size.

Even some simple things have changed for the better, like the “What’s new” sections after app updates that are now highlighted through a background color and new notifications icons after updating apps.
