Even though both of these devices have been upgraded to Android 7.0 Nougat, it has been confirmed that the Nexus 6 and Nexus 9 won’t receive the Android 7.1.2 Nougat update that’s due in a couple of months. There’s actually a rather simple explanation for why Google has decided not to release said update for these devices even though they’re already running the latest iteration of its mobile platform.
As you might have heard, word on the street has it that Google could be unveiling Project Andromeda on the 4th of October, which in case you haven’t heard, is Google’s vision of the future where Android and Chrome OS are merged together into a single platform. If you’re looking for more proof, you’re in luck.
If you are the owner of the Nexus 6 or the Nexus 9 LTE and you’re wondering when you will be able to get your hands on the Android 7.0 Nougat update, it looks like you’ll have to wait a few weeks. This is according to a report from Android Police who has confirmed with Google that the rollout is expected to happen in the next few weeks.
Earlier this year, the Nexus 9 was being offered at a 40% discount which led some to believe that maybe HTC and Google were trying to offload some existing stock. Later the tablet simply disappeared from the Google Store which then led to speculation that the tablet was being discontinued, possibly in favor of a newer model.
The Nexus 9 is a tablet that was introduced in 2014 and represents the first time in a long time that HTC has made a tablet. However could the tablet be discontinued and could we be getting a new model? It certainly seems that way because according to reports, the Nexus 9 tablet has disappeared from the Google Play Store.
HTC is running a new promotion today that’s going to appeal to you if you’re in the market for a new smartphone but wouldn’t mind getting a tablet for free as well. For today only the company is providing a free Nexus 9 tablet, a $399 value, with each purchase of the HTC One M9. The handset itself costs $649.
Valentine’s day is just around the corner and that means that many of you will be out picking up presents for your significant other. Tablets make a nice present, who doesn’t like getting a new slate that they can use for casual web browsing and watching Netflix, it’s one of the perfect gifts. If you are in the market for a new tablet perhaps you might want to take a […]
Using our brains to control things sounds like something out of a Marvel/DC movie involving telepathics and whatnot. However in reality, such technology has existed for a while. For example back in 2012 as part of the BrainGate program, a woman successfully managed to control a robotic arm to feed her sips of coffee just by using her mind.That was not the only success story from BrainGate. Recently it has […]
The HTC Nexus 9 tablet was launched last year. It seemed to be a happy middle between those who wanted a small-ish tablet but did not want to go for 7-inch models, although unlike Google’s other Nexus devices, the Nexus 9 did not exactly catch on and become a huge hit. However the good news is that if you wanted to get your hands on one, it is now enjoying […]
Not too long ago Google released the Android 5.1.1 update for the Nexus 9, Nexus 10 and the Nexus Player set-top box. It was only a matter of time before this update was released for the smartphones, and the LTE variant of the new Nexus tablet. Today the company is rolling out this bug fixing update for the Nexus 5, Nexus 4 and the Nexus 9 LTE.
Last week Google confirmed that the Nexus 9 will soon be receiving the Android 5.1 update. The company certainly took its sweet time in releasing this update for the tablet given that the other Nexus handsets and tablets have already been updated to Android 5.1. There’s good news today for Nexus 9 owners because the over-the-air release of Android 5.1.1 for this tablet has finally begun.
One of the biggest selling points that Google highlights for its Nexus devices is that these smartphones and tablets are always the first in line when the company releases a major software update. Android 5.1 has already been rolled out to other Nexus devices but the Nexus 9 has not received it yet, which certainly makes owners of this tablet very anxious. Now though there’s word from the company that Android […]
Last year Google announced that Android 5.0 Lollipop devices will ship encrypted. When the first Lollipop devices started shipping, which happened to be from Google’s own Nexus crop of smartphones and tablets, all of them were indeed encrypted straight out of the box. However devices from Google’s OEMs are not shipping encrypted which goes to show that Google is not forcing its manufacturing partners to do so, even though it […]
Google made us all wait a long time before it launched its current flagship tablet the Nexus 9. It is the first tablet on the market that comes with Android 5.0 Lollipop pre-installed. If you happen to have one on you and are not particularly satisfied with Google’s stock version of Android 5.0 Lollipop then you’re free to install a custom ROM. CyanogenMod, the most popular third party ROM out […]
