    Last year's Chromebook Pixel has now come out of stock from the Google Store. The $1,299 ChromeOS laptop didn't get much word from its maker when it dropped from the sales beat. The second Pixel book ends its run at 17 months and just two months after a job posting surfaced for a "Quality Engineer" for the Chromebook Pixel unit. Anyone getting into the job would be expected to help shape "Google's next game-changer", potentially implying a third Chrome Pixel on the way. The Pixel C convertible tablet that's still on sale right now runs on Android. Source: Google Store, OMG! Chrome! Via: ...

    Let's face it: you probably most dreaded three words in that headline. "Back to School". Back to torture. Back to long hours sitting at your desk, letting numbers and passages hit your skull. Back to making yourself just a bit smarter with the process getting all the more harder. Fortunately, technology can help dull the pain and the Google Store has an array of deals for you. Save $30 off either the Acer Chromebook R11 ($249.99) or 14 ($269.99) through August 7. Save $50 off the Huawei Watch ($349) and the Elegant ($449) and Jewel ($549) models through August 1.

    With Chrome OS taking on windowed Android apps via the Google Play Store in mere weeks, you may be looking at some Chromebooks if only for the vague interest in how that would all work. Well, you have a couple of extra choices from Acer to consider at the Google Store. The Taiwanese manufacturer has put up its new Chromebook 11 and Chromebook 14 on offer. The 11.6-inch model comes with a 1366 x 768 anti-glare LCD, a dual-core Intel Celeron N2840 (2.16GHz), 2GB of RAM and a 16GB SSD. It has a USB 3.0 and a USB 2.0 port along with HDMI and SD card slots. The 2.43 lb aluminium-built device is ...

    The old guard is going away. The Nexus Player just left the Google Store and the Nexus 9 left not long before that. Now we know that HTC is completely done with its own-made tablet as well. The company has said to CNET that it has ended its manufacturing run of the Nexus 9 and has a limited number available at its site. Indeed, all but the white 16GB version are still there on HTC's site as of this post. After several Hot Deal Tuesdays that had the slab discounted by hundreds of dollars, you'll still have to pay full price for these products. Will this clear the way for HTC to possibly ...

    The Nexus Player is done. It's been done at many retailers for the past few months, but it's especially done now as the Google Store has stopped selling it. In fact, the product page doesn't exist anymore — the link that would take you there redirects to the Google Store's TV & Audio section. Ironically, the Nexus Player remains on the header image for the page as of this post. The Nexus Player was Google's first start into its Android TV system that allowed content to be played on a larger screen without relying heavily on an Android phone's resources. A few TV and set-top box ...

    While waiting for an exciting next-gen Cardboard headset full of sensors and a way more powerful standalone Google VR viewer, both of which could see daylight at the I/O conference in a week or so, you’re free to experiment with the immersive technology for a crazy low price in more countries than ever. And you’re even officially supported by the search giant now in Canada, UK, France and Germany, a few months after the US Google Store debut of the original Cardboard. Of course, these super-basic, humble devices (if we can call them that in the first place) were initially launched in ...

    For Android devices, it's almost a badge of honor getting listed for sale in the Google Store. It's not like Google sells just any hardware, so you've got to be something special to make it into this exclusive club. Beyond Google's own Nexus lineup, that includes some third-party Android TV boxes, but maybe the easiest way to get your hardware in the Google Store is to launch an Android Wear smartwatch. Today we've got big questions about the fate of one of those wearables, as Google appears to have shut down sales of the Moto 360 Sport. As you may recall, the story of the Moto 360 Sport's ...

    Google's been selling Nexus hardware for years, offering shoppers a chance to take home a “pure” Android experience with some of the best software support in the business. Starting as a phone-only affair, the lineup's since matured with tablet options, as well as multiple handsets selling alongside each other. But in recent years, Google's love affair with Nexus tablets seemed to be waning, and the last such model we got was 2014's Nexus 9. Now the era of that HTC-made tablet is starting to come to a close, as Google puts an end to its Nexus 9 sales. As of today, Google's no longer ...

    Is it sexist to design and market gadgets specifically for women? Is it sexist not to? There’s no winning with something like that, though more and more smartwatch manufacturers seem to be casting political correctness aside, applying a form of positive discrimination in their attempts to get ladies interested in wearable technology. Motorola has a second-gen Moto 360 “style” for women, the Samsung Gear S2 is available in 18k rose gold and platinum plated variants that don’t really appeal to the everyday tech-loving male, while the two Huawei Watch for Women flavors unveiled back ...

    It’s the end of an era, and the beginning of a new one. Just as a couple of fresh styles for a very fashionable Fossil timepiece and an all-new Outdoor Watch from Casio picked up official Google support, the seemingly timeless LG Watch Urbane surprisingly saw its days cut short. But is it really surprising? In a way, sure, since Big G never tried to preserve the circular Android Wear gadget’s charm with any sort of discounts. The Watch Urbane debuted in April 2015 at $350, and it was sold for $350 by its search giant endorser up to its demise. Then you have an inexplicably rushed ...

    On our podcast this week, we talked about how we've seen the doldrums of the smartwatch lately. Pebble is about to cut loose a quarter of its employees. Discounts are flying for the Gear S2. But we're still expected to believe that these things will be a thing. And so, the Google Store has decided to make some additions to its Android Wear ranks with the CASIO Smart Outdoor Watch getting its own product page. There's no orders, pre-orders or anything going on, not even a monitoring service you could subscribe to, just a product page. Supposedly, this thing will be on sale tomorrow, so ...

    How heartbroken were you to see the $300 Google Nexus 5X deal killed off back in early February? No matter now, as it’s been renewed by B&H PhotoVideo, plus the device-producing search giant and Best Buy. Meanwhile, the larger, more powerful and equally smooth Nexus 6P was first discounted to $450 at B&H on Friday, with Google and Best Buy quickly following suit. Only the latter retailer can do an even better deal, charging $425 for the 32GB stock Android-running phablet, and throwing in a free Speck CandyShell grip case. As far as B&H goes, the bundled $50 gift card is still ...

    If you're in Austin this weekend for SXSW, we're jealous. Major jelly going on. And for those of you who aren't participating in the hours of tech, music, thought-provocation and the mad dash to Franklin Barbecue, you can grasp at the straws of fun or grasp at a few Nexuses or a Moto 360 or two. LIVE on #Periscope: #GoogleStoreClaw Live https://t.co/Xaomk4JN9F — Google Store (@GoogleStore) March 12, 2016 The Google Store Claw machine is up and running at the Google Fiber Space over there and it's had some exciting action on its first day of use.

    Between the start of HTC Vive pre-orders, and Microsoft inviting developers to pre-order HoloLens, we've totally got virtual reality on the mind today. And while expensive new hardware like those new options may give you a VR experience that's second to none, you don't need to break the bank in order to get started, and there are lots of affordably priced Cardboard-compatible viewers out there for you to use with your existing smartphone. Today we see Google doing what it can to more easily connect users with these products, adding a new VR category to the Google Store. Google already sold ...

    If you've been sitting on your hands to prevent yourself from snatching a $299 (or $349) Nexus 5X, here's your heads-up. If you recall, the original prices for the Nexus 5X were $379 for the 16GB variant and $429 for 32GB. If you don't recall those prices being the status quo, well, we don't blame you. But there will be a revised price bar set at the end of Friday, February 12. The 16GB phone will be $349 while $399 will be the price for the 32GB model. So, take heed. Get $50 off the #Nexus5X until Fri. Only at the @GoogleStore: https://t.co/zQzfhjHvxJ pic.twitter.com/uxsk2c2DEf — Nexus ...

    For every device comes its time to go. For these two Android Wear smartwatches, they've had their time around. The original Moto 360 from Motorola is now nearly 18 months old while the Sony Smartwatch 3 is about a month younger. The Google Store has determined that it's about time that the two were discontinued from sale on its virtual shelves. The ever-popular Moto 360 went through sales that took the price down from $250 to $100. The Smartwatch 3 received nowhere near the attention as Motorola's creation did, but given how far it has gone as Sony's overall mobile sales have fallen, it's ...

    The discontinued Motorola-made Nexus 6 is available at a reduced price on Amazon, possibly in a last attempt to clear inventory, Google just dropped the Nexus 5X to a starting tag of $350 on a permanent basis, so it’s only natural the Huawei-produced Nexus 6P follows suit. Unfortunately for hardcore Android purists, the N6P is likely still greatly popular at its normal retail cost, so Big G doesn’t see the need to take anything off the MSRP yet. Instead, you’ll net $50 savings on any Huawei Watch configuration purchased from the search giant with the acquisition of any Nexus 6P ...

    Google's Nexus phones have always been appealing to a certain class of smartphone buyer, but with this year's Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P, is it finally time for Nexus to go mainstream? Affordable pricing is back, the hardware is pretty darn attractive, and with two phones to choose from, offering shoppers a choice of size and style, it's easier than ever to find a Nexus you like. If there's still room on your list for a new smartphone this holiday season, Google's giving you a better reason than ever to pick up one of the new Nexus phones, as it cuts prices and offers an attractive shipping ...

    Have you been hoping to grab an old-model Nexus device to get that pure Android swag without dealing with this model year's bag? Maybe you could find a better price for the Nexus 6 on the Google Store. We doubt it, though. At least in the US, as it was selling for $499 when sites like Amazon were undercutting the Google Store. Now, those sites have only themselves to undercut as sales of the Nexus 6 from the Google Store have ended. Bye bye, Nexus 6. Hello, Pixel C. Check out Pocketnow's Holiday Shopping Guide within the next 24 hours of this post as we'll be updating it with the latest ...

    Well, this is sure unexpected. Google has never been a stranger to Black Friday deals offered directly on its website, but normally, you were looking at free Play credit with sizzling hot new Android hardware, and actual savings only on older or less popular gear. Not today, though. Today and only today, while inventory lasts, Big G shaves a cool $80 off all Nexus 5X configurations, regardless of storage and paint jobs. That means the 16GB LG 5.2-incher costs just $299 unlocked in black, white and mint, whereas the 32 gig model will set you back 350 bucks in the same three color options. ...

    You already have enough mobile gear on sale this Thanksgiving, Black Friday and “Cyber Weekend” at dozens of US retailers to last a lifetime. But one essential piece of the holiday discount puzzle is yet to fall into place. The big one. No, we don’t mean Samsung, although that was also massive. Not Apple either, since, well, you rarely get decent savings on iPhones or iPads from the Cupertino manufacturer directly. But Google last year sold its then sizzling hot Nexus 6 and 9 with free Play Store credit, bringing the LG G Watch price to a temporary all-time low too. Naturally, we ...

    Back in March, Google split device sales off from Google Play, and brought them instead to the newly launched Google Store. The website offers visitors a convenient place to buy Nexus hardware, Chromecast-series devices, Chromebook laptops, Android Wear smartwatches, and all manner of accessories. At least, most of what it does is selling things, but a new product listing suggests that the Google Store may also start filling a promotional role for certain devices, even when Google's not selling them at all. We recently saw US carriers start sales of the LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition LTE. ...

    First announced (more like teased) way back in June 2014, one of only three consumer Android TV devices ever released barely saw daylight this spring. Though manufactured by a respected gaming juggernaut, the Razer Forge TV appeared doomed off the bat, with very timid marketing efforts, pretty impressive hardware but deeply flawed software. It wasn’t long until Nvidia rolled out the Shield Console, aka Shield Android TV, which despite a higher price tag, quickly managed to garner a decent audience. With last year’s Nexus Player also around at $80 or so (sometimes $50), the Forge TV’s ...

    Available for pre-orders since way back September in the US, UK, Korea, Japan, and Ireland, the LG-made Google Nexus 5X is clearly not as in-demand as the Huawei Nexus 6P. Either that, or the former device manufacturer outpaces the latter as far as mass production is concerned, which is obviously a strong possibility as well. Huawei might be able to ship a lot more phones worldwide than LG at the moment, but this is the first time the third largest OEM is involved in a Nexus launch, and customer interest could overwhelm anyone. All in all therefore, Android purists living in EU countries ...

    Update 2: MaterialUP developer Victor Borga responded to our request for comment, saying: I change the logo "Google Play" to "Google Store" because I think the name is more consistent. Update: We saw in the comments of the original post that the user was running Cyanogenmod v. 12, which is compatible with a theme called MaterialUP, available here on the Play Store (still). Gaurav Garg, one of our readers, has been able to achieve the same results with the skin and has posted the screenshots below. Thanks for the support! All that said, it is a surprise in any fashion to have a new ...
