Google officially announced Nexus 6 phone, Nexus 9 tablet, with preorders starting in October

Google Motorola Nexus 6Google has announced the latest in their Android line with the Nexus 6 smartphone and Nexus 9 tablet. Both will be launched in November, with preorders beginning in late October (for the Nexus 6), and October 17 (for the Nexus 9).

The two devices are collaborations between three companies, Google, Motorola (Nexus 6), and HTC (Nexus 9). Both are an attempt to provide “more screen” as their major incentive, as media viewing capabilities become all the more important to consumers.

You can bet that a big drive for this sudden release is the iPhone 6 Plus, and the promise of a new iPad Air 2 that has only just been leaked. The need to take a slice out of the market, especially right now before the iPad’s actual sale, is important. But will the move pay off?

Before getting more into this discussion I should also mention that some analysts think that Samsung is planning a “great OS escape” in 1-2 years. It could be true, but I don’t think that’s gonna happen anytime soon. But in the event this would happen, what would Android do ?

The next Google Nexus Phone could be made by LG, Samsung or others

Google Galaxy NexusI’ve seen a lot of rumours lately about Google next Nexus smartphone. Some say it will be built by Samsung, others say by LG and others say that anyone can build a Nexus smartphone as long as they stick with Google strict standards.

The most recent rumour that came up right before the weekend was about LG. As we are speaking some of you know that LG is already planning to release a “superphone” called Optimus G. LG already released a bunch of information about Optimus G, probably wanting us to die after their phone. Optimus G will feature a 1.5GHz Quad-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Processor, 4G LTE, WXGA True HD IPS+ display, 2GB of RAM and an 8 or 13 megapixel camera. Awesome, but unfortunately it should weight 145grams, so it’s quite heavy.
