    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 ...

    Head on over to the online Google Store, and you'll find devices like the Nexus 6, Nexus 9, Chromecast, and Nexus Player, all up for sale. While that makes the site the go-to stop for Google's own hardware, there are a few third-party devices that still manage to score this kind of exposure: things like the Razer Forge Android TV bundle. Now we're seeing another manufacturer of Android TV hardware get its device added to the highly selective list of Google Store merchandise, as NVIDIA brings its Shield set-top box to the site. The Tegra X1-powered Shield box first launched back in early ...

    In case you've been on the edge about whether or not to purchase one of Google's recent devices, now may just be the perfect time to act.

To be eligible to the offer, you must purchase a Nexus 6, Nexus 9, or any Android Wear watch, and your order must be completed through the Store. The deal will be available ...

    Updated with high-quality audio cut below. Enjoy! Getting back on the horse. Getting back into the groove. Getting the warp core back on-line. However you phrase it, getting back on-track is exactly what we're doing on this week's podcast, settling back into the studio chairs after over a week in Barcelona handling the hottest mobile technology (and podcasting from unconventional venues). On this week's episode, we're paid a special visit by someone we've heard from before – but he's fresh from his very first Apple experience and full of not only Apple Watch knowledge ... but new ...

    Google has been constantly changing how it sells to customers. When it started with its marketplace for only digital goods meant for Android devices, it launched Android Market. Then came along the Play Store, which then merged digital sales with sales of Nexus devices, then Chrome OS, then Android Wear watches. At this point, Google Play has become massive and even convoluted in a sense, which is why today's announcement of the Google Store makes perfect sense. The Mountain View, Calif., company is marketing Google Store as an online marketplace for all of the company's devices. The ...

    When you think of Google these days, you think of a lot of things: search, Android, Chrome, and even a digital content store, aptly named Google Play. The last thing you would likely ever tie Google directly to is a physical retail location, a brick and mortar store. No less, a report surfaced late last week suggesting Google was about to do just that … again. Currently, Google has Android stores in Australia, which go by the name Androidland. This time, Google is looking for a physical retail location for all things Google in New York City, according to Crain's NY. It's looking at an ...
