    When it comes to the next generation of Nexus-series Android devices, questions abound. Will the Nexus 6 really be another LG model, drawing from the soon-to-launch G3? And what about a new tablet? Could HTC really be making it this time around, and is this the model we've seen referred to as codename Flounder? And if it's an 8.9-inch model, would it be the Nexus 8 or Nexus 9? It's going to be a while before we have all of those answers, but this week some new evidence arrives that seems to support the idea that these next models will at least be called the Nexus 6 and Nexus 8 – or does ...

    If we're to believe those new rumors about Android Silver, the Nexus series of devices may soon be going the way of the dodo, but with that transition not expected until sometime next year, one more Nexus smartphone could still be in the cards. We've heard a few stabs at what to expect from the Nexus 6, from a pared-down version of the LG G3, to something from Lenovo, and even wondered about a curved-screen handset. Today's rumor returns to the idea of a G3-based One, and in particular focuses on the idea of the phone arriving with a fingerprint scanner. While we haven't talked much about ...

    Earlier this month, rumors started talking about a possible effort from Google called Android Silver, a project that would involve a handful of Android smartphones running near-stock builds and being offered as part of a premium smartphone-owning experience: users would enjoy things like enhanced support for data migration to the new phone, one-on-one customer care, and even loaner phones when yours goes lost - all in all, some real white glove, concierge-level stuff. At the time the report was a little shaky, but today new details arrive, both expanding upon what Android Silver involves ...

    One week back we heard a pretty interesting rumor about Google's possible plans for a future Nexus phone, one that would reach new heights (or should that be lows?) of affordability by selling for a mere $100. While the report was quite light on hardware details that might explain how the phone could be provided at such a low price point, it did name one: the use of a MediaTek processor. That on its own is enough to get Android fans groaning, either due to the reputation of the company's products as lesser alternatives to even lower-end Snapdragon chips, or as so many of you pointed out in ...

    Whatever happened to the Nokia Lumia 1820? We'd been talking about it since last year, and for a while we were hoping it might make an appearance at MWC, but then it dropped off the face of the earth. Was there still a chance this guy might be headed for launch, or were we barking up the wrong tree all along. As if from out of nowhere, the 1820 is back on our radar this evening, with a case maker's website alluding to the smartphone, along with a few rumored Samsung models. Noreve makes some fancy leather cases for a whole bunch of smartphones. Pull up one of those listings, and edit the ...

    Curved screens are nothing new to Google's Nexus family of smartphones -- or are they? The second iteration of Google's flagship phone was made by Samsung. It was called the Nexus S. It's successor was the Galaxy Nexus. Both had curved screens. But that's not entirely true, is it? Both the Nexus S and the Galaxy Nexus had curved glass, but that glass covered flat screens, thereby providing only the illusion of a curved screen. Perhaps that's just semantics, and it's all in the past anyway. When you jump forward to today we have a very different situation: both the Nexus 4 and the Nexus 5 ...

    "What would you say to the people who think that what you do is illegal?" " ... I would tell them that I don't want to answer this question."

    We just heard the latest rumors on LG's possible launch plans for the G3, adding further support to the idea that we wouldn't be waiting around until August or September again this year, with the phone being unveiled as soon as June. For the last two years, this LG G-series flagship has served as the outline for Google's Nexus phone; will 2014 repeat that trend? At least one rumor responds in the affirmative, and hints at some of the differences between the G3 and this Nexus 6. Gizmodo.de claims that the Nexus 6 will be a “lightweight” version of the G3. Well, what might that mean? ...

    This is for your weekend casual read, your viewing, and commenting pleasure! We were expecting stuff like this to surface after the Google-Motorola-Lenovo deal and the internet didn't disappoint. First of all, the fact that Lenovo now owns Motorola (thanks to Google) is by no means an indication that the Chinese manufacturer's American phone-maker branch will build the next Nexus. Heck, Motorola didn't build the Nexus 5 while it was Google-owned. We don't need to enumerate all the reasons why this concept is very optimistic, to say the least. Instead, we'll present you with the images ...
