The new Nexus 6 and Nexus 9 have been the talk of the Android town this week, with the Nexus 9 going on sale and the Nexus 6 remaining very hard to get, at least from Google’s Play Store. Our review of the Nexus 9 went up this week, but it wasn’t the only review going live: the new Moto X, Huawei’s massive Mate 7, and Sony’s Xperia Z3 Compact received the same treatment. On the software front, large updates hit Calendar, Maps and a few other Google apps. We’ve heard the first credible rumors about the Galaxy S6, due next February. Finally, Motorola made the rumored global version of the Droid Turbo a reality.

Earlier this week Google pulled the curtains off the biggest update to the Calendar app in a long while. Now the update is rolling out to users, and the APK file is available for download.
