The Nexus 10, probably the tablet I have used the most over the last couple of years out of any Android tablet, can be picked up today through one of eBay’s Daily Deals for $329.99. This is the 32GB version that originally retailed for $499 at launch over a year ago and has been out of stock on Google Play for months. Other retailers are selling this model for $399 now, so at $329.99, you are still seeing a significant discount, though it’s not exactly the $170 off that the deal would lead you to believe. (more…)
Update: These renders were submitted to a handful of sites, including ours. We’d lean on this being fake rather than close to being real. Take it for what it’s worth. Move along.
Are these two pictures of the new Nexus 10 made by Samsung? Industry leaker @evleaks posted up the picture below moments ago with a warning that he couldn’t confirm any of the details as they were sent to him as a tip. His tip suggested that the device will again be made by Samsung (not Asus as has been previously reported) and will feature an Exynos 5 chipset, WQXGA display, 3GB RAM, 16 or 32GB of storage, 5MP rear camera, 3MP front camera, and run Android 4.5. The images also show front-facing speakers and transparent Kit Kat notification and navigation areas.
Sound odd? Well, we received similar information from what may be a separate source within the last 24 hours, but have been sitting on it. (more…)
The mystery of the LG-V510 is pretty close to being solved today, as open source files for the tablet have surfaced over at LG’s site. If you download the source .zip file and unzip it, you are greeted with three files – two of which call it the “G-Pad 8.3 Google Play Edition.” Rumors for weeks have gone round and round about this device, hoping all along that it would be some sort of Nexus 8. Sorry folks, it isn’t. But, it’s pretty close! (more…)
Well, that escalated quickly. Google is rolling out OTA updates for Nexus devices to Android 4.4.2, and we have download links for you.
The only ones we have yet to see are downloads for the Nexus 7 2012, both WiFi and HSPA+ models. Once they become available, we will add them to the list.
Update: We have the other download links, so have at ’em! (more…)
We received a report a moment ago from a reader who was notified to update his Nexus 7 (2012) to Android 4.4.2 (build KOT49H). We’re still awaiting more info from him, but a user on reddit and another on XDA also are confirming the arrival of yet another update.
We should point out that Sprint support is showing that the Nexus 5 is due an update to build KRT49H (pretty sure it’s KOT49H) today, which is a build we have yet to see. The Nexus 5 just received its Android 4.4.1 update last week as build KOT49E. (more…)
A new piece of info hit the web this weekend, concerning a possible LG-made Nexus 8 tablet with model number V510. If you will recall, the V510 has been going back and forth in the eyes of bloggers who continue to either try and confirm that this is a new Google tablet or debunk it as a LG G Pad 8.3 with LTE connectivity. According to @evleaks’s newest tweet, the V510 is indeed a Google Nexus device. (more…)
Nexus devices including the Nexus 5, Nexus 4, and variants of the Nexus 7 were receiving an OTA update last week to build number KOT49E of Kit Kat, Android 4.4.1. The update is now available for Nexus 10 tablet owners, who can either wait for the update to roll out or simply sideload the file using adb. Either way, when you own a Nexus, it’s nice to have options. (more…)
