The Samsung-made Nexus 10 is the first tablet around running a processor based on Cortex A15 cores. It debuted alongside the Nexus 4 in the fall of 2012, where it brought Google's tablet lineup a full-sized, high-res alternative to the Nexus 7. The Nexus 10's ten-inch LCD display has a stunning 2560×1600 resolution, more than capable of handling any HD content. Unlike the Nexus 7 with its 3G option, the Nexus 10 remains WiFi-only for the moment.

    Yesterday, after a lot of will-they-won't-they confusion, we saw Google go ahead with initial distribution of Android 5.0 Lollipop updates for existing Nexus models. We got word of updates on their way down for the Nexus 5, Nexus 10, and both generations of WiFi Nexus 7, as well as some smaller updates for the Nexus 6 and Nexus 9. Shortly thereafter, Google made available factory images for these models, enabling you to flash your device with Lollipop at the expense of losing all your data. For many users, that's just not an option they want to embrace, and the ...

    It's a big day for Android 5.0 Lollipop, and following Motorola's confirmation that this year's Moto X and Moto G were seeing their Lollipop updates go public, we got word from Sprint that we should be on the lookout for an update to the Nexus 5. As we mentioned in an update to that story, Google has since tweeted that “the rollout has started,” but we were careful to not read too much into what it meant there without getting some further confirmation. Based on a growing number of reports from end users, we can confirm that OTA Lollipop updates are headed out for certain Nexus models. ...

    This week's been a pretty significant one for Android, as users get their first taste of the public non-dev-preview Android 5.0 Lollipop release in the form of the Nexus 9. We've seen Google update its online codebases with new Lollipop sources, as well as deliver factory images for some of this new 5.0-running hardware. But despite how hard we've been looking, there's been nary a peep of Lollipop updates for existing Nexus devices – models like last year's Nexus 5 and Nexus 7. There's still no official news, but rumors now suggest that Google might have hit a small delay in getting ...

    The times, they are a-changin'. Following this week's launch of the Nexus 6 and Nexus 9, Google's Play Store is beginning to reflect the company's shifting focus to sales of these new devices. Listings have arrived for the Nexus 6, Nexus 9 (for which pre-orders are now open), and the new Nexus Player (even if that's outside our mobile-focused wheelhouse). But their presence hasn't come without cost, as we see Google appear to kill-off sales of the Nexus 10 and 2013 Nexus 7. Under the Play Store's phones and tablets listing, you'll now find the Nexus 5 (but for how much longer?), the Nexus ...

    Earlier this week, we got news from Google about its plans for the public release of Android 5.0 Lollipop: while the new Nexus devices would (obviously) ship with Lollipop, updates for existing models were announced as arriving sometime in the weeks to come. Well, what does that mean? Will Nexus 5 owners be waiting until Thanksgiving before they have a chance (beyond the dev preview, at least) to bring Lollipop to their phones? Today we start to get a better sense of just who's getting what when, as a leak attempts to reveal Google's distribution strategy. The first release should be in ...

    HTC has been making smartphones for a very long time. The company was often used by big-name OEMs as the manufacturing company that built their hardware. Compaq and HP (back when they were in the personal digital assistant business) both used HTC to build their devices, which were arguably some of the best pieces of consumer electronics of the day. But what about an HTC tablet? HTC Tablets HTC has made some very high-end smartphones recently. The One M8 lineup looks and feels great, thanks in part to its aluminum construction - which doesn't bend like Apple's latest aluminum smartphones. ...

    Google's Android L release so far has differed from the norm in as many ways as possible -- for one, an early developer preview version has been made available for non-public consumption until the general release comes around this fall. Now, an AOSP push has begun for the Android L developer preview source code for most Nexus devices. To be clear, as Googler Bill Yi puts it (in the source link below), this is "not a full platform update and only for reference." That means, yes, custom ROMs based off of this code won't be possible quite yet. For the devs among you, we're sure you want ...

    In the road leading up to Google I/O we were a little uncertain about whether or not we'd be seeing the premiere of a new version of Android. After all, 4.4.3 and 4.4.4 are both still very new, and Google hasn't seemed to be in any particular hurry to move things up to 4.5, or even the 5.0 we've been wondering about for far too long. But then yesterday we heard Sundar Pichai apparently confirm his intent to at least preview this new Android version at I/O this week (and presumably, we're looking at today), even if a release would still be a little further down the line. So with this new ...

    Android 4.4.3 is still brand new, with only certain Nexus, Google Play Edition, and Motorola devices having received it at this point (and even within this select group, there are issues). In an incredibly odd move, however, Google has released factory images for Android 4.4.4 (build number KTU84P). At first glance, there isn't much difference, but there of course is that little something that caused Google to release the update so soon after 4.4.3. Both factory images and binaries have been posted for KTU84P, with only certain Nexus devices seeing the love at this time -- there's ...

    One of the biggest mysteries hanging over hanging over Google's Nexus series of Androids has concerned the fate of the 10-inch option. By now, Google's made it clear that we get a new Nexus smartphone every year, and the way the first two generations of the Nexus 7 look, that's a pattern we could see Google mirror with these smaller tablets. But what about bigger ones? The Nexus 10 launched all the way back in 2012, and after it passed that one-year mark, we really started looking in earnest for a replacement. While we still don't have any firm answer, some recent developments over on the ...

    The Nexus program is a somewhat shrouded in mystery. We suspect that Google it running it to a platform upon which it can demonstrate the "pure" version of Android, and to serve as a reference platform from which the other OEMs can look to. It also proves that fairly high-end and high-quality hardware can be made and sold for a very reasonable price -- in the States at least. Thus far, Google has selected one OEM to partner with at a time to make a Google-branded smartphone or a Google-branded tablet -- tablets being the late arrivals to the lineup. So far, Google has partnered with HTC to ...

    It was a bit confusing to read about reports talking about a certain eight-inch Google Nexus 8, to be allegedly manufactured by ASUS, and then to read the reports that claimed HTC to be an upcoming OEM for a Google Nexus slate. However, today's reports are shedding just a tad more light on the events: the Nexus 8 is still, according to hear-say, going to be produced by ASUS. HTC, however, will be the one behind the Samsung-made Nexus 10 successor, claim "industry sources". Said sources also indicate that HTC has purportedly turned down Google's offer back in 2012, to be the OEM behind the ...
