Google’s Nexus 7 details leaked ahead of Google I/O

by: LucianJune 25, 2012

By now, everyone knows about the upcoming inexpensive Google Nexus 7 tablet. The slate is made by Asus, but it’s a full-fledged Nexus device, which means that it will run the latest version of Android (Jellybean/4.1) and will receive updates straight from Google.

Well, you won’t have to wait much longer, since we’re just two days away from Google I/O, when the tablet will be unveiled together with Android 4.1 Jellybean. You should be able to get your hands on the Nexus 7 tablet from the same day (if you’re going to Google I/O) or a couple of weeks later, in July, when the tablet is set to start selling.

We now know a lot more details about this [...]

Larry Page rumored to miss Google I/O due to voice-related health problems

by: Chris SmithJune 25, 2012

Google CEO Larry Page is now said to miss due to some unexpected health problems the main event in Google’s yearly calendar, Google I/O, scheduled to take place between June 27-29 in San Francisco.

Specifically, the CEO has lost his voice according to a Wall Street Journal report, and thus he won’t be able to take the stage during the keynotes of the developers conference. Strangely enough, he also missed Google’s annual meeting last Thursday and he is said not to make an appearance during Google’s upcoming Q2 earnings call that should take place in mid July.

Google has not detailed the health issues and the secrecy surrounding this [...]

Google Nexus tablet release date set for July, report claims

by: Chris SmithJune 19, 2012

In just over a week from now Google will host its annual Google I/O developers conference in San Francisco, an event that’s going to star the company’s first Nexus-branded tablet. The device, rumored to be called the Nexus 7, will be an affordable 7-inch Android tablet, which we’ve seen in various reports and leaks in the past few months.

The Nexus tablet is expected to be an Amazon Kindle Fire competitor, rather than a full blown iPad rival. Android Authority has exclusively reported from Computex 2012 that Asus will indeed be the maker of the Nexus tablet, just as it was rumored so far.

Today we have a new report confirming that the [...]

Google’s tablet to offer magazine subscriptions from major publishers

by: LucianJune 8, 2012

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 subscriptions to their magazines on Google’s tablet. Google will most likely make some kind of catalog app for these magazines, or at the very least, they will make a separate tab/category for publications in the Play Store.

Google has also recently announced in-app subscriptions [...]

Google’s Senior Vice President of Chrome and Apps Sundar Pichai took the stage at D10 yesterday, the Wall Street Journal’s yearly “All Things D” conference, to talk about some of Google’s products he oversees, including the Chrome browser, Chrome OS, and Google Drive.

Google I/O is a little over a month away, and the speculation surrounding the “Nexus 5,” the rumored five devices Google is set to reveal this year, is picking up steam.

Rumor: will Google celebrate Android’s 5th birthday with the “Nexus 5″… on November 5?

by: Ankit BanerjeeMay 24, 2012

The build-up to the Samsung Galaxy S3 release has shown all of us how crazy the rumor whirlwind can get. This has led me to treat all rumors and speculations with a healthy amount of caution and skepticism. There have been a lot of rumors about future Nexus devices, including the possibility of a low-cost but high-spec’ed Nexus tablet being in the works, in addition to the yearly flagship Nexus smartphone.

Recently, there has been talk about Google planning to release up to five Nexus devices this year. Further adding to this speculation is a confirmation from a source that TalkAndroid calls “reliable”. The source mentions that Google is expected to [...]

by: Ankit BanerjeeMarch 26, 2012

With the upcoming release of the Samsung Galaxy S3, we have seen how rampant rumors and endless speculation can help whip everyone into an absolute frenetic frenzy – including us.

Google announced last December that they would be working towards releasing a Nexus Tablet to be released in less than six months. With this six month self-imposed deadline quickly approaching, rumors and speculation about this device has also been growing exponentially.

Here is a quick rundown of what we, think, we [...]

Is Android 5.0 Jelly Bean Set to Receive Webtop Dock Functionality?

by: Christine TorralbaFebruary 22, 2012

The last time we talked about the upcoming Android 5.0, we had received reports that speculated that Jelly Bean is supposed be released in the second quarter of the year, which is difficult to believe. As the days passed, we got to learn more information about this new iteration of Android. Rumors now suggest that Android 5.0 Jellybean is to gain a few elements of the Chrome OS so that it can be optimized for tablets. This, in turn, has led many to speculate that it will be dual-bootable with Windows 8.

Today, we have learned something else about Android 5.0—that it will have an included native docking mode; which is a lot like Motorola’s Webtop. This new information [...]
