Google I/O is almost upon us and we’re sure many are wondering what Google could be announcing at the event. Will we be looking at the latest version of Android, new Nexus tablets, or maybe even the Nexus 5? While it remains to be seen, it would seem that a couple of retailers from the UK have just removed the Google Nexus 4 from their shelves without stating the reason why. We doubt it’s because of its lack of popularity, and according to speculation, some believe that the removable of the Nexus 4 is to make way for the Nexus 5 which some speculate could be announced at Google I/O.
While that is one of the possibilities, another possibility could be that instead of a Nexus 5, we could instead be looking at an upgraded version of the Nexus 4 which is said to feature LTE connectivity, and if the rumors are to be believed, could be made by Motorola and not LG who was the original manufacturer of the Google Nexus 4. Take this with a grain of salt for now, but check back with us during Google I/O for the details!
When Facebook Home was first announced, the launcher was made available only to a select couple of handsets, older handsets in fact, like the Samsung Galaxy S3, the HTC One X, One X+ and so on. Well the good news is that if you’ve been eagerly waiting to get Facebook Home onto your brand new HTC One or Samsung Galaxy S4, you’re in luck as the launcher has since been updated to include support for both the HTC One and the Samsung Galaxy S4. Apart from that, the app has also received additional updates such as several performance and improvements.
Facebook did state that they plan to include more features in future updates of the launcher, such as Dock, Dash Bar and a new user experience. No word on when these features will be made available, but in the meantime for HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S4 owners, this update is for you. If you’re interested in giving the launcher a go, head on over to the Google Play store for the free download and to check to see if your phone is supported by it.
