Google blames growth stall on Nexus 6 supply

Google blames growth stall on Nexus 6 supply

During Google's Q4 2014 earnings call this afternoon, the company's Chief Financial Officer Patrick Pichette spoke about the many ups and downs of the past three months. In explaining the downs of this past quarter, Pichette spoke of two points in particular. One was the Exchange Rate between the United States and international consumers. The other reason Pichette gave for Google not hitting goals they'd set for themselves was the less-than-stellar supply they had with the Nexus 6. Pichette also mentioned Google Glass, as it were, as an example of what Google does when a project doesn't work.

Blame Apple for the Nexus 6’s missing fingerprint sensor

Blame Apple for the Nexus 6’s missing fingerprint sensor

Apple may get blamed by many for trampling on innovation, but it turns out the company - or at least its rapacious supply chain - was to blame for the Nexus 6's cute-but-dumb dimple. The branded divot beneath the current Android flagship's camera may act as a handy place to rest your finger, but it was meant to be a far more useful location for a fingerprint sensor, according to former Motorola chief exec Dennis Woodside. Now at Dropbox, Woodside confirmed in an interview recently what many had suspected since the Nexus 6 was first unveiled.

Nexus Player breaks out into Best Buy and Newegg

Nexus Player breaks out into Best Buy and Newegg

Android TV is such a novel concept, not to mention implementation, that it will require a lot more exposure before it becomes the de facto Android living room experience that Google most likely wants it to be. In this case, the more people that can get their hands on an Android TV device, the better. That is why the availability of the Nexus Player outside of the very limited reach of Google Play Store is such a good thing. This ASUS-made puck is now also available from Best Buy and Newegg to reach more interested owners.

Motorola returns to China with Nexus 6-alike Moto X Pro in tow

Motorola returns to China with Nexus 6-alike Moto X Pro in tow

Now that Chinese company Lenovo holds the reins over Motorola, it was only natural that the smartphone maker will be making its presence known in one of the fastest growing mobile market in the world. All that will start this year with the arrival of three Motorola smartphones in the Chinese market. But Motorola has one rather odd surprise to add to its other odd surprises last year. There's a new Moto X Pro in tow, but, for all intents and purposes aside from the branding, it's basically the Nexus 6.

Nexus 6 returns via Motorola, ships early next year

Nexus 6 returns via Motorola, ships early next year

Since being launched in early November, the Nexus 6 has had trouble staying put. We can’t find it via Google Play (reliably), and carriers aren’t guaranteed to have it, either. AT&T famously pulled the Nexus 6 from their rotation due to a software glitch, and Verizon isn’t even trying to make a home for Nexus. Even when it is in stock somewhere, supplies and options are limited. Motorola, who manufactured the Nexus 6, has brought it back to their online portal, with all variants and colors being made available.

Nexus 9 released to AT&T with LTE

Nexus 9 released to AT&T with LTE

This morning both T-Mobile USA and Google Play released the LTE version of the Nexus 9. This is HTC's first Nexus tablet, one that works with an NVIDIA Tegra K1 processor and Android 5.0 Lollipop right out of the box. You'll also find that AT&T has released their iteration of the tablet this afternoon. This device will cost the same no matter where you buy it - just so long as you buy it straight out, without any payment plans of any kind, whatsoever.

Nexus 9 LTE arrives at Google Play

Nexus 9 LTE arrives at Google Play

Just after T-Mobile brought their LTE version of the Nexus 9 tablet to the masses, Google Play released theirs as well. These two devices will be effectively the same, the only difference being - perhaps - that the T-Mobile USA version might end up loading some (deletable) T-Mobile apps once the LTE SIM card is activated. Both devices are on sale this afternoon, both online - it would also appear that both devices will share essentially the same price point at just under 600 dollars for a 32GB internal storage size unit.

Nexus 9 LTE will land on T-Mobile first, Google Play later

Nexus 9 LTE will land on T-Mobile first, Google Play later

Looking for a Nexus 9 LTE? If you’re going to Google Play, you might be out of luck. The tablet is currently listed as “coming soon” via Google’s official device sales portal, but T-Mobile is here to rescue us from a tablet-less world. Starting today, T-Mobile will be selling the Nexus 9 LTE from their online “deals” site, The Underground. The Nexus 9 LTE isn’t cheap — it starts at $599 — but it’s really your only option if you want the connected Nexus tablet in time for the holidays.

Google is making it really hard to get a Nexus phone this year

Google is making it really hard to get a Nexus phone this year

Google’s Nexus might set the bar for Android, but it probably won’t be a gift you give or receive this holiday season. After a report Google was discontinuing their Nexus 5, Google confirmed it was still around — just on a sabbatical. Google says the Nexus 5 will be back next year, likely in January. With that, we’ve got little recourse for actually snapping up a Nexus smartphone right now, since both are out of stock via Google Play. If you were hoping to see a Nexus in someone’s hands this year, you might be out of luck.

T-Mobile delays Nexus 9 launch indefinitely

T-Mobile delays Nexus 9 launch indefinitely

T-Mobile sure does love Google. Even their outspoken CEO John Legere is hard-pressed to find something bad to say about the search giant, especially when it comes to their Nexus products. After being forced to push back the launch of Google’s Nexus 6 by a week, T-Mobile is once again having issues getting Nexus devices. This time, the Nexus 9 is the culprit, and leaked internal documents suggest T-Mobile is delaying the tablet launch indefinitely as a result.
