Android Authority On Air – Episode 31 – Nexus Rumors & Play Store Services

by: Derek RossSeptember 28, 2012

The fall for Android fans is nearly its own holiday season with Nexus rumor after Nexus rumor bombaring the Android community. This week had us on the edges of our seats nearly every day as  new Nexus rumor surfaced. We heard rumors about an upcoming $99 Nexus tablet and a thinner, better $199 Nexus tablet. We heard more reports on an upcoming LG Nexus, based off of the Optimus G. We saw pictures get posted to Picasa that may or may not be from the Samsung Galaxy Nexus 2. And, HTC rumors were rampant talking about the Nexus 5, a Nexus with a 5-inch screen.

Google launched Google Play Services this week and man, it’s going to be big. This first round we saw OAuth [...]

iOS 6 vs Jelly Bean, a tale of two updates

by: Chris SmithSeptember 21, 2012
Yes, we know it’s iPhone 5 and iOS 6 week this time of year, as Apple has released its sixth major mobile OS refresh a couple of days ago which was followed by the sixth iPhone launch – currently taking place in Asia and Australia and quickly spreading to Europe and the North America. But what we’re strictly interested in today is the inevitable iOS 6 vs Jelly Bean update comparison when it comes to availability and adoption rate among existing consumers, which you know from the get go that it's not going to be a battle Google can win just yet.

by: ŠtefanSeptember 19, 2012
LG's recently announce Optimus G is arguably the most powerful Android smartphone to ever be announced. It has a quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 under the hood, 2 GB of RAM, a 13 megapixel camera, and just about everything you could want in a mobile phone. So why not make a Nexus version of it for the hardcore Android community?

Galaxy Nexus 2 (GT-I9260) apparently in the works, could be called the Galaxy Premier

by: Chris SmithSeptember 16, 2012
A distant rumor suggested that we will see a variety of Nexus-branded devices this year, but so far the only new Nexus in town is Google’s budget-friendly tablet, the Nexus 7. But with three months left in the year, there’s plenty of time for Google and its partners to launch a bunch of Nexus smartphones, especially since Samsung, Sony and LG are all rumored to work on one such devices: Galaxy Nexus 2, Xperia Nexus and LG Nexus.

by: LucianSeptember 4, 2012
Sony shows good will by publishing Xperia S binaries for the AOSP project. This should make it easier to port stock Android to the Sony Xperia S, and it could be a sign for a Sony Nexus device in the future.

Nexus-like AOSP update support for Sony Xperia S starts as Google experiment

by: Chris SmithAugust 18, 2012

Sony has been less than reliable when it comes to offering timely Android updates for its Android-based devices, but this could all change in the future, as it looks like Google is ready to offer Nexus-like AOSP support to at least one Sony device.

The Sony Xperia S is the lucky fellow that will receive Nexus-like treatment and we’re certainly intrigued by the move. What does it mean for the Android business? Will we see other Sony and non-Sony devices get the same support for Google?

I’m sure that neither carriers nor device makers would be entirely happy to let customers fetch their Android updates directly from Google, but should [...]
