    Motorola's upcoming product announcements are starting to feel like they're a done deal already. What hasn't been nearly confirmed by Motorola itself through some not-too-subtle-at-all invite imagery, we've been piecing together ourselves thanks to no shortage of rumors and leaks. Those leaks have really been stepping things up in recent days, helping to answer some of our outstanding questions about this hardware. But this morning we switch gears from hardware details to pricing info, spotting a couple of these Moto handsets revealing their worth to India's Zauba import database. This ...

    Is it finally Motorola's turn to make a Nexus phone? Like HTC, Samsung, and LG before it, rumors have turned to the idea of Motorola – even as it changes hands from Google to Lenovo – manufacturing the next Nexus handset. Yesterday we looked at some early evidence pointing to the existence of this Motorola device codenamed Shamu, reportedly a 5.9-inch phablet. Now we've got some new corroboration to add to those claims, as well as some updates about what might be in store for Google's Android Silver efforts. According to The Information, Shamu didn't really get started until after the ...

    For about the past five months now, rumors have been swirling around this idea that the Nexus series of Android phones and tablets was coming to a close. After initial talk of Google Play editions possibly rising to take their place, rumors of Android Silver popped-up, and it became the presumed replacement for the Nexus program. And while neither Silver nor Nexus came up at the Google I/O keynote, that new business of Android One with its own stock Android experience could easily be seen as further fuel for these rumors. But was all this death-of-Nexus panic premature? Have we been ...

    Nexus is a word that resonates with many, if not all, Android enthusiasts. It's a name that means much more than your standard smartphone branding. Originally created as a vehicle for new versions of software on reference hardware to developers, Nexus has grown into something far more vast and meaningful. Each year, despite not always coming with the latest specifications or best physical designs, Nexus devices are always among the most hotly rumored and highly anticipated smartphones and tablets. The second-generation Nexus 10, for instance, has been rumored for months on end, never ...

    Last week ended with a bombshell, as a rumor claimed that not only was the “Android Silver” project happening, but that its arrival would mean Google wouldn't be selling a Nexus 6 smartphone this year. OK, but assuming that's true, this Android Silver business sounded like it might offer a functional equivalent: a high-end Android handset with some stock, GPe-like software, even without that Nexus name. Would we still see some LG G3 variant arrive in this form, as had been rumored? Well, the idea that Android Silver might not arrive until February 2015 would make the G3 a senior ...

    It seems Android Silver is a thing. As rumors swirl of the possibility that a Nexus 6 may not be coming out this year, and we may see a "Silver" program from Google to replace it instead, new leaks are suggesting that Google may launch no stock Android phone this year after all. The latest leak regarding Google's mystery Android Silver program pegs a release timing at some point in February of 2015. We don't have word on any manufacturers, carriers, or specific devices involved, though we would hope to see a wide assortment of products. Stock Android enthusiasts are no doubt confused at ...

    Android rumors stretching back to January have been talking about the idea of Google retiring the Nexus family as we know it. It all started off with claims that 2014 would be the last year for Nexus devices, and they'd ultimately be replaced by the Google Play edition models like we have now, though possibly under some new branding. Then in late April those rumors started taking much more focused shape, describing something called Android Silver that would that would deliver a kind of “premium Android experience” that fit nicely with that idea of rebranded GPe. But again, what we were ...

    Nimble hops between short subjects, or longform plumbing of deep depths? We don't like to make you choose with our podcast, so we occasionally hop across formats between episodes. This here is one of the deeper variety. This week's special guest is Myriam Joire (aka tnkgrl), Engadget alum and current product evangelist at Pebble. She brings her considerable expertise in optics and audio to a discussion ranging from the best high-end headphones to buy (to help replicate the "special" acoustic experience promised by the Harman/Kardon HTC One M8) to what camera settings to use for capturing ...
