For who knows how long over on Expansys, you can purchase a new Nexus 9 LTE tablet with 32GB of storage for just $379.99. Considering Google sells a similar LTE model on the Google Store for $599 and Expansys normally wants $499, this is a pretty sweet deal. (more…)
If you have used a tablet running stock Lollipop, then you probably know that the notification shade situation isn’t exactly ideal. Before Lollipop, Google was using two separate pulldowns for the notification shade on tablets, one that would show notifications and another that gave you access to quick toggles. Since those were combined into a multi-layered single notification shade in Android 5.0+, they decided to center it on tablets, no matter where you swiped from. (more…)
Google has announced a whole bunch of features of the Android M Developer Preview, which we have detailed here. But what about devices? Well, they also announced that it will be available on the Nexus 5, Nexus 6, Nexus 9, and Nexus Player. They didn’t say when, but I would imagine that it will be soon – maybe even this week.
As we learn more about availability, we’ll update this post. (more…)
Google posted Android 5.1.1 factory images today for the Nexus 9 LTE (LMY47X) and Nexus 5 (LMY48B), leaving the
Nexus 7 (2013) LTE, Nexus 7 (2012) mobile, Nexus 4, and Nexus 6 as the only current Nexus devices without them. I would imagine they will be here before long. Once they do show up, we’ll be sure to share them. (more…)
Update May 20: Nexus 4 and Nexus 9 LTE Android 5.1.1 OTA .zips added. (Edit: Nexus 5 too)
Now that Android 5.1.1 factory images have been posted for a number of Nexus devices, we are starting to see the rollout of over-the-air (OTA) updates to them, namely the Nexus 7 (2012) and (2013), Nexus 10, and Nexus Player. More will arrive soon (Nexus 5, Nexus 6, Nexus 4, and Nexus 9), so we are starting to compile a list of them all below. We know that many of you like to sideload updates rather than wait for them to hit your device – feel free to bookmark this one. (more…)

Here are the instructions on how to flash a Nexus factory image.
Go get it. (more…)
