Samsungs-Galaxy-Nexus-smartphones

The Galaxy Nexus started at $299 with a 2 year contract and a pretty pricey monthly plan, around 7 months ago. Google announced a significant price drop to the unlocked GSM version a few months... ago, and it went from something like $700 unlocked to only $399, which was great value for the money. Google has now dropped another $50 from the price, making it only $349, which is just $50 more than i...

Jelly-bean-easter-egg

Just like day turns into night, and vice versa, you can always count on Google to slip some surprises into its mobile OS. The Android 2.3 Gingerbread came with a zombie easter egg and Android... 3.0 Honeycomb got a Bumble Bee surprise. Meanwhile, the 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich got its own ice cream sandwich-cladded green robot. Notice the pattern? It’s only to be expected that Android 4.1 Jelly...

I remember hearing Eric Schmidt many years ago, about how the future will reveal a phone that will become your perfect assistant. A phone that would take in information from around... you, would be based on your behavior and habits, and will give you the information you need to know before you even have to ask for it. Well, Google Now seems like the realization of that dream, or at lea...

chrome

We’ve been expecting this day for at least two or three years, basically since Chrome came out and quickly started to become the default desktop browser for many of us, even when it was... still in beta. Since then, we wanted to see Chrome for Android, but for some reason, Google kept avoiding the subject until this year.

This year we saw Chrome for Android Beta for the first time...

Android Jelly Bean

Android 4.1 Jelly Bean will be available in a few weeks. Besides the brand new Nexus 7 tablet, the first devices to receive the latest Android update from Google will be the Galaxy Nexus, Nexus... S, and the XOOM. Following Google’s mind boggling Keynote announcement at Google I/O today, the Android team posted the platform highlights, recapping all of Jelly Bean’s new features. Here a...

electronic arts strike force html5 game

Although EA pulled their games from the Google+ game store for lack of user interest (I don’t think Google+ users like playing Flash games that much, and they don’t like getting... spammed like in Facebook, either), it seems that the video games giant will still partner with Google to release a sophisticated 3D multiplayer game for Chrome and ICS devices, that surprisingly is n...

jelly bean google lawn

A picture’s worth a thousand words, they say.

In case you are not up to date with Google’s informal traditions, the Android team celebrates major releases by decorating the... lawn in front of Building 44 from the Google campus with a giant monument representing the desert that gives the codename of the release. It started with Cupcake (Android 1.5), and continued with Donut...

cm9-rc1

The ICS version of Android has been a pretty strange one from the point of view of upgrades from manufacturers and also of the hacking community that are making custom ROM’s for Android... phones, like the CyanogenMod team. That’s because ICS was a huge overhaul of Gingerbread. This is the reason it has taken (some) tablet manufacturers a couple of months to upgrade Honeycomb to IC...

NexusTablet-580-75

Google’s 7″ tablet is expected to be unveiled this month at Google I/O, and start selling a couple of weeks later. People attending Google I/O are probably going to get one the same... day it’s announced, just like last year they received the Galaxy Tab 10.1.

BusinessInsider’s sources told them that Google partnered with some major magazine publishers to offer subscr...
