The Moto 360 is not exactly rugged; its internals may be protected by a stainless steel exterior and Gorilla Glass 3, but that does not mean it is not susceptible to nicks, scratches, or worse.

At some point today, the Nexus 6, Google’s new flagship smartphone, will go up for pre-order through Google Play. That could happen in a couple of minutes or it could be another couple of hours. Google doesn’t ever tell us when these things will go live, we instead have to sit here for hours tapping the refresh button. The fun of a Nexus launch!
Because this is a major launch, we want to know if you are planning to pre-order one. You will have a couple of color (white or blue) and storage size (32GB or 64GB) options to choose from, along with starting prices of $649 and $699. There are no carrier deals to be had today. If you want to pre-order the Nexus 6, you have to fork out the full retail price.
So, who is pre-ordering?
The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Developer Edition for Verizon that we first told you about last week is now available for purchase. For $699, you can own Samsung’s latest oversized device and have the opportunity to unlock its bootloader.
In case you were wondering, this is the same Galaxy Note 4 that has been available from carriers. You are still looking at a 5.7-inch QHD AMOLED display, Snapdragon 805 processor, 3GB RAM, and S Pen functionality. The only difference here is the unlockable bootloader that tinkerers tend to need in order to, well, tinker. (more…)
