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.

    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 ...

    Pocketnow Daily gets an average of 300 to 500 comments a day, and sometimes even a thousand.

This is the Pocketnow Daily Recap. Since we only have 3 minutes on every Daily video to go through the hottest news, the weekly recap will serve as a more extensive discussion where we also include your thoughts on the subject. Sadly, for the sake of ...

    [vamp] [vamp] [vamp] [vamp] That's the text that leads us in to each episode of the Pocketnow Weekly: a column of virtual prompts on the rough rundown reminding us that, after our loosely scripted intro block, there's a gulf of pure off-topic nonsense between the opening music and the rundown's news section. It's a handful of minutes devoted to office banter, good-natured ribbing, and, in today's case, an EQ experiment by our own Taylor Martin that results in him literally reading the "vamp" cues out loud like the delightful troll he is. That's the kind of stuff you're missing if you skip ...

    Update: While we were giving this leak the benefit of the doubt at first, no sooner had we published this post when @evleaks decided to step back from even his "we just don't know" stance to a "this is probably a fake" one, citing the discovery that the same leak had been sent to other recipients with differing details. Dagnabit! - Android's been dominating the headlines for most of the day so far, and the platform's not taking any breaks now. A few hours back we were talking about the possibility of seeing a new Nexus 10 arrive, with Google appearing to have run down its stocks on the old ...

    Is a new Nexus 10 ever coming out? A couple weeks back we were talking about the (admittedly unlikely) possibility of Samsung and Google unveiling a new model at the CES, but that clearly hasn't happened (despite an otherwise awesome-sauce tablet showing from Samsung). Rumors about a new Nexus 10 go back months and months; all the way back in October we saw the 16GB Nexus 10 not just go “out of stock” but go “out of inventory” and wondered if that might foretell the coming availability of a new model. While nothing's happened since, the other shoe may have just dropped, as the 32GB ...
