Moments ago, Google introduced three new accessories to the Nexus 4 family. The N4 listings include a pair of wired headphones for $19.99, standard USB cable for $9.99, and a power adapter at $15.99.
The accessories aren’t necessarily anything groundbreaking from what we can tell, but the headphones do at least include flat tangle-free cords, aluminum backing, double rubber ear pieces, and a microphone for taking calls. The USB cable and power adapter on the other hand, are exactly what you think they are. Need a spare charger combo? I guess this is an option. (more…)
Google has released the Android 4.2.2 “JDQ39″ binaries and will now begin pushing the code to the Android Open Source Project. These files, available for the full range of Nexus devices, will greatly benefit anyone looking to make their own ROM’s and or anyone hoping to see new ROM’s completed for any number of devices should be excited by this news.
The final day is here! Our week long series of Nexus giveaways known as the 5 Days of Nexus finishes today, with a reader approved Nexus 10 16GB. We asked via poll which Nexus you would be most interested in winning, and 58% said that the Samsung-made Nexus 10 would be it. So here we are, giving away a tablet with an insane resolution to one of the amazing readers here at Droid Life.
This contest will run a bit longer, with a winner being chosen on Monday morning. The Nexus 10 is a solid prize, plus today is Friday, so we want to make sure that everyone has a chance to enter.
With tomorrow being the last day of the 5 Days of Nexus giveaways, we figured it would be swell of us to let you, the readers, decide which device you want most. You can either go for LG’s Nexus 4, the ASUS Nexus 7, or Samsung Nexus 10.
Portenzo, makers of fine hand-made tablet cases, is now selling their Alano and BookCase varieties for the Nexus 10. We’ve taken a look at both the Alano, which is made from a single sheet of leather, and the BookCase, which is exactly as the name suggests. Our looks may have been for the Nexus 7, but the the Nexus 10 cases have the same options and are made with the same high-quality materials. (more…)
Welcome to the first of five contests for a week long series of giveaways we have dubbed the 5 Days of Nexus. With little interesting news coming out of Mobile World Congress, a stark contrast to years past, we thought it would be the perfect time to focus your attention elsewhere and reward the faithful Droid Life community with a bunch of free devices, all of which fall under the Nexus brand. That’s right, we are giving away nothing but Nexus phones and tablets to you, the DL reader. (more…)
Well, I finally got Ubuntu Touch booted up on my Nexus 10, so here is a brief hands-on with the world’s newest mobile OS. This is a developer preview build and is intended for use only by developers or hardcore enthusiasts. There are barely any working applications and in terms of being a “daily driver,” you would be better off looking elsewhere. What I will say is that Ubuntu Touch is actually quite gorgeous and I could really see myself using it down the road once it becomes more functional/stable. (more…)
