According to T-Mobile support, the Nexus 5 will receive an update to Android 4.4.3 starting today. The update includes “security enhancements” and “various bug fixes.” The build number is KTU84M. And that is about all we know.
The Android 4.4.3 update has seemingly been in the works for a few months, with supposed rollout said to happen “at any minute” a couple of times.
Update: T-Mobile says the Nexus 7 (2013) is getting Android 4.4.3 today as well, build KTU84L. Cheers BiggiePhat!
Update 2: Nexus 4 now added to the list.
Is today finally the day? (more…)
If you want an Android tablet, finding a good deal on one is not difficult. In fact, I don’t know why anyone would pay full price for an Android slate at this point. Whether it’s something from Samsung or the latest Nexus tablet from Google, someone is bound to have a discount worth considering. Take today’s deal on eBay for example, where you can grab a refurbished 16GB variant of the Nexus 7 (2013) for $139.99. The device originally retailed for $229 in a “brand new” state, but thanks to the manufacturer having to tinker with it, you can save $90.
The Nexus 7 (2013) may be almost a year old, but it is still widely considered to be one of the best available.
Just a quick heads-up to the international crew, once again, but yesterday during all of the LG G3 festivities, Google made some of their services and devices available in new countries. Items like the Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 (2013), plus Chromecast and Google Music All Access can now be enjoyed by new parts of the world. (more…)
It might be two years old at this point, but eBay is running a flash sale on the original Nexus 7 (2012) with 32GB of storage for $99. The device is manufacturer refurbished, but as we have mentioned countless times, many believe that refurbishing a product gets rid of issues and actually makes a product better in some situations.
The device runs a Tegra 3 processor, has 1GB of RAM, and a 7-inch display. It also runs the newest version of Android, which is Kit Kat 4.4.2.
If you need a super cheap tablet that also carries the Nexus brand and stock Android, this isn’t a bad deal. The deal also includes free shipping.
We noticed a couple of deals floating around today that were worth sharing, one of which includes a special edition Star Wars version of the DROID 2. Everyone remember the R2D2 slideout DROID 2 that Verizon wanted $250 on-contract for? Since the phone was priced insanely high, it never did sell out even though limited numbers were produced. The proof is today’s deal through eBay that has the device readily available for $69.99. At that price point, we are talking impulse buy/novelty/collectible territory.
Outside of that random throwback, we thought we should point out that Amazon has had the Chromecast listed for $29.99 for a couple of weeks – that’s $5 off retail. Amazon is also hosting a flash memory sale for PNY cards, including a 64GB microSD card for $35. (more…)
There is a good chance that Google gives us a Nexus 7 (2014) in a couple of months, but that doesn’t mean the 2013 model shouldn’t be considered for your next 7-inch tablet, especially at the rock bottom prices we keep seeing through daily deal sites. Take for example the deal running today through eBay. For $139.99, you could pick up the Nexus 7 (2013) with 16GB of storage. Sure, it’s “manufacturer refurbished,” but some would argue that’s a good thing.
The 16GB version through Google Play still current retails for $229. Do the words “manufacturer refurbished” scare you enough to give up a $90 discount? (more…)
April 1 is a weird day. Everyone is hesitant to believe in anything they see or hear, but we can guarantee you that this sale from Google is legit. If you absolutely need a case or sleeve for your handy Nexus device, today is the day to buy. (more…)
Last night, Google pushed forward on its quest to bring its range of hardware to other parts of the world outside the U.S.
The Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 are now available in eight new countries including Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Netherlands, Portugal and Sweden.
Google’s HDMI dongle, the Chromecast, is now available in eleven new countries including Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden and the U.K. Retailers like Amazon, Google Play, Currys PC World, Elkjøp, FNAC, Saturn, and Media Markt will all carry it.
And, yep. (more…)
