Google Will Make More Nexus 6 Devices Available Each Wednesday

Google posted a new message to their Nexus 6 listings on Google Play this afternoon, a message that might help you land their new Nexus phone, or at least be prepared to try and land one. According to all of the Play listings for the Nexus 6, Google is trying to get more devices in stock as soon as possible, but for now, will make more of the device available each Wednesday.

While not the best news, this is at least something, since most of us struck out in seconds when they went up for pre-order last week and have been wondering if and when more would arrive. Feel free to stop refreshing! (more…)

As Google learned with the Nexus Player, you can’t sell a product unless it has been given the green light from the FCC.  (more…)

LG G Watch R Comes to AT&T on November 5 for $299

The LG G Watch R is officially coming to the US on November 5 for $299. Yep, that would be this Wednesday. You will be able to purchase LG’s premium watch at AT&T’s online shop on November 5, then in stores on November 7.

For those not familiar, the G Watch R is the other round Android Wear smartwatch. LG will probably tell you that it is the only fully round smartwatch, which is them taking a subtle, but well-played jab at Motorola for the “flat tire” found at the bottom of the Moto 360. The device is also made of premium materials, like metal and leather. It has a 1.3-inch P-OLED display, the first of its kind. It also has a heart rate monitor, classic sport watch styling, and really is the other premium Android Wear watch to consider.  (more…)
