The eagerly anticipated refinement to the Nexus 5, the (very likely-called) 5X was prematurely listed before being swiftly pulled from the Amazon India website. Naturally, someone managed to grab all the details and there is a Reddit article floating around with the full run down of this

2015 Nexus photo leaks.

I loved the Nexus 5, so much in fact that I bought 3, but when the Nexus 6 came around it just didn’t grab me. It was just that bit too big and let’s be honest, too expensive in comparison to the other versions. Well if the

Moto X Play – A compromise? – Opinion.

What on earth are Google going to call the next Nexus?

Naming conventions are a great thing. Sony have the right idea, they have a few product ranges differentiated by a letter, ie E, M or Z. Then add a number on the end, ie M4, Z2 or E4 and that’s you sorted for the next 99 years

Google’s Project Fi to run on 2 networks

Before we start I should put in a slight caveat that this is just in America at the moment, but it is still an interesting development, especially given the network rivalry over the pond. Google are going to rent network capacity for voice, texts and data from

MS Office Comes to Android

Who out there uses their Android tablet for Work? Not that many I guess, and there is one huge reason for this and until very recently the this would be the case if you were to ask iPad users the same question. Finally Microsoft have stopped suing Google

Nexus 9 Review

Production of the Nexus 5 finished

Google has confirmed that the Nexus 5 production has stopped, and… once they are gone, they’re gone, so we’d suggest people get them while they can. It was only yesterday that Google removed the listing of the the Red and White variants of the Nexus 5 from Google

Nexus 9 available for pre-order now from Play Store

Google finally seems to be getting their shipping act together as the Nexus 9, the first tablet to come with Android Lollipop installed, is now available for pre-order at the play store. The only caveat is that the wait time is currently standing at 2-3 weeks. I
