According to Sprint’s support community, the Nexus 5 is getting its update to Android 5.0 “Lollipop” starting today. The build will rollout in “batches” as build LRX210.
If that’s the case, then don’t be surprised if factory images arrive as well.
Be on the lookout! If you own a Nexus 5, feel free to check for the update we have all been waiting for. (more…)
Ready to go out and buy a Nexus 6, the newest flagship phone from Google? Then you are probably wondering when and where you can do that at, I would imagine. November 12 has basically become the official launch date at this point, but that doesn’t mean that every single carrier or store will have the phone at that time. So, since tomorrow is the 12th, we thought a handy little list of stores, carriers, and availability at each would help you decide where you can focus your efforts. (more…)
Sprint joined AT&T this morning in announcing availability of the Nexus 6, Google’s new flagship phone. But unlike AT&T, Sprint is actually giving us a date to buy the phone, not just pre-order. Come Friday, November 14, you can buy the Nexus 6 “in Sprint direct ship sales channels, including Sprint Stores, Sprint Business Sales, Web Sales and Telesales at 1-800-SPRINT1.” (more…)
In August of this year, long-time now ex-Googler Nikesh Arora, who left the company as its Chief Business Officer, has found a new home on Sprint’s board of directors, after becoming CEO of SoftBank Internet and Media Inc in October.

Google posted a new message to their Nexus 6 listings on Google Play this afternoon, a message that might help you land their new Nexus phone, or at least be prepared to try and land one. According to all of the Play listings for the Nexus 6, Google is trying to get more devices in stock as soon as possible, but for now, will make more of the device available each Wednesday.
While not the best news, this is at least something, since most of us struck out in seconds when they went up for pre-order last week and have been wondering if and when more would arrive. Feel free to stop refreshing! (more…)
An HTC-made tablet stopped by the FCC yesterday under ID NM80P82300, one we are assuming is the LTE-ready version of the Nexus 9. As you may have noticed, the LTE version of the Nexus 9 hasn’t gone up for sale yet, nor have we been given a release date. This could be the reason why. As Google learned with the Nexus Player, you can’t sell a product unless it has been given the green light from the FCC. (more…)
A US availability date for the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge has been announced this morning by Samsung as November 14. Well, they expect that it will begin arriving in carrier stores (Sprint is one) around that time – except at AT&T. AT&T announced availability this morning, as well, giving us a firm November 7 date for the arrival of this interesting device in select stores.
Other carriers will likely announce availability at any moment, so when that happens, we will update this post. (more…)
Starting today, Sprint has expanded its phone lease program to include the Galaxy S5 and Galaxy S5 Sport.
