Guess what? We are only a month away from Black Friday, which means we are only two months away from Holiday season! Yes, I’m being that guy, but I also want to help because last year you said you would start shopping earlier. If you need a present for a tech-lover in your life, check out this 32GB Nexus 10 from Woot! (more…)
Invites haven’t gone out or anything, but we’d be shocked if Google wasn’t preparing for some sort of Fall event to unveil Android 4.4 “Kit Kat,” a new Nexus phone (likely the Nexus 5), and potentially even a smartwatch (internally known as “Gem”?) or new Nexus 10. We know for sure that Android 4.4 is coming, and that a Nexus 5 has already stopped by the FCC, but other mysteries remain.
For example, what will Kit Kat bring that was worthy of an entire name change? Will there be massive UI changes, new services that we have yet to unravel, or something else under the hood that will magically make updates easier for OEMs? And what about that Nexus 5 that we seem to think we know so many details for? Will Google still find a way to surprise us? Will the price be as shocking as that attached to the original Nexus 4?
And let’s not forget that beyond the new Nexus phone and Android 4.4, there is a chance we see even more. Are you excited to see what Google can do with a smartwatch or have you seen enough from that niche thanks to Pebble and Samsung? Does something like a Nexus 10 refresh have you all hot and sweaty? Does Google have something else up its sleeve that we haven’t quite put our fingers on?
In the poll below, give us your quick vote as usual, but then take to the comments to tell us which new potential Google announcement you are most excited for.
eBay is hosting a deal on new Nexus 10 32GB tablets, priced at just $359.99. That’s $140 less than what they are listed for on Google Play. The Nexus 10 is still a well-performing device, still getting timely updates from Google. With a 10.1″ display (2560 x 1600) and Exynos 5 dual-core processor, this tablet will still make any Android fan happy. (more…)
eBay is hosting a sweet little deal on new Nexus 10 tablets, priced at only $369.99 for the 32GB variant. If you were to look on Google Play, you can find the exact device, but listed at a whopping $500. The tablet, in regards to specs and performance, is still a great option for those who like to compare. It features the super high-res 10″ 2560 x 1600 WQXGA display, an Exynos 5 dual-core processor, 2GB of RAM, a 5MP back-facing camera and the ability to have the latest versions of Android running almost as soon as they are released.

Shortly after announcing the new Nexus 7 on stage at a Google event in San Francisco two weeks ago, Android boss Sundar Pichai allegedly told a Wall Street Journal reporter that a new Nexus 10 was also on the way and that Samsung would be making it again. The news didn’t exactly surprise us, since Samsung and Google have had a solid partnership over the years, especially when it comes to the Nexus brand. With that said, a new report out of Geek.com suggests that Samsung may not make the new 10-inch tablet at all, and that Asus, who has made both Nexus 7 tablets for Google, may have actually won the bid.

With yesterday’s announcement of a brand new Nexus 7, but no mention – not even the slightest hint – of a new 10-inch Nexus 10, some larger-tablet fans are getting concerned. But don’t go worrying too much. According to Amir Efranti, a reporter for the Wall Street Journal, tweeted that Google’s Sundar Pichai has confirmed a new Nexus 10 is in the works. As head of Android and a few other things at Google, we would say it’s a safe bet that he knows what’s going on. (more…)
And just like that, we’ve got Android 4.3 (JWR66V) factory images already available for the Nexus 4, Nexus 7 (WiFi and HSPA), Nexus 10, and GSM Galaxy Nexus (takju and yakju) variants.
If you don’t want to wait for the OTA to arrive or a .zip to flash, you can always flash factory images in adb. These do wipe your phone though, so keep that in mind.

For the next two days (or until they run out), Woot is selling the 32GB version of the Google Nexus 10 for $380. That’s a heck of a deal. The retail 32GB version of Google’s big-screened tablet runs $499 through Google Play, so even though this is refurbished, you are saving yourselves at least $100. When you compare it to the 16GB version, you are still saving yourself around $20, plus some shipping costs. Shipping on Woot is $5, while Google currently only has a $13 2-day shipping option.
Again, this is refurbished and not brand spankin’ new, though some would argue that refurbished models perform better than new since manufacturers have had a chance to fix issues.
Cheers S McCartney!
