Nexus 9-29

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.

microSD card

Google is easing restrictions on access to the microSD card that were first introduced on KitKat. With the arrival of new Lollipop APIs, apps will again be able to write data to any folder on the microSD card, provided the user allows it.
