Last month, Blackberry finally brought its once-amazing BBM service to Android. It was viewed as a way for Blackberry to still stay somewhat relevant in today’s market, but wasn’t received very well thanks to delays to its release. Another problem is that this strategy was not selling any Blackberry devices for the struggling company. If these leaked images from Crackberry are true, Blackberry might be trying to bring Android onto its devices. (more…)
Google released a new app to Android this morning called Google Opinion Rewards. As the name of the app suggests, Google wants to reward you for giving your opinion through surveys, with those rewards coming as Google Play credits. The app is free (of course), requires you to fill out a quick survey on your self (age, location, sex, etc.), and then takes you through a couple of example surveys upon first launch. Once you are all setup, your first survey should appear or Google will notify you when a survey worth Google Play credit is available. (more…)
We are rolling up on 24 hours since the Nexus 5 hit Google Play, so we thought it might be a good idea to update everyone on what inventory is left if you were still planning on picking one up. As of right now, both the Black and White models in the 16GB memory option are sold out, but the 32GB models appear to still be hanging in there for purchase. (more…)
Whoa, Nexus 5 orders are already shipping just hours after some of you placed your orders. Ours have yet to ship, but at least three readers have pinged us with shipment notifications. Assuming you all placed your order with 2-3 shipping, you could have your phone by Monday. Good job, Google, you may have done a launch right.
If yours has shipped, let us know which model you ordered and what your shipping parameters were. (more…)
The Nexus 5 went live on Google Play at 11AM Pacific this morning in both black and white, and with 16GB and 32GB storage options. It’s now just past noon and we’re seeing shipping dates creep out. Initial orders were showing a shipping date of 11/5, but now all Play listings for the new Nexus show a November 8 date. I’d say it’s pretty obvious that Google sold through most of their initial stock within an hour. That’s impressive.
Did you get your order in on time?
There she is! Nexus 5!
At this time,
we’re only seeing the black version available with 16GB of storage.
UPDATE: We have both black and white version now, in both 16GB ($349) and 32GB ($399) of storage.
Nexus 5 white: 16GB | 32GB
Nexus 5 black: 16GB | 32GB
