Google announced some really great news today.
First up is the new Android version 5.0 called Lollipop. This new version will utilize the Material Design that you may have seen in some of their updated apps like Hangouts. With the cleaner and flatter design comes bold bright colors. Lollipop will launch on all the new Nexus devices next month. Lollipop will feel smoother, more natural and responsive.
First up is the phone all android fans have been waiting for, the Nexus 6 built by Motorola. Boasting the largest screen size in the market, right at 6 inches. Build quality is premium and specs are top notch, competing with the likes of the Samsung Note 4. What sets the Nexus 6 device apart is the pure Google Experience. If you haven’t tried the “vanilla” experience it’s well worth taking a look at. I’d compare it to using an iPhone, Google gives you regular software updates on time and the software experience is much smoother than a customized android experience by Samsung, LG, or HTC. The feature I find really nice is that wireless charging is included!
Next device Google announced is the new tablet called the Nexus 9, built by HTC. This will be a great tablet to buy this holiday season. The Nexus line has a great user experience due the direct control Google has on the hardware and software. Boasting some of the best specs in the tablet market, it’s coming with the new 64-bit NVIDIA Tegra K1. I have enjoyed my Nexus 7 and don’t plan on giving it up but the Nexus 9 will be a worthy upgrade.
Last device Google announced surprised most people. The Nexus Player, sure to be one of the best TV accessories. This small device will connect to your HDTV and allow you to play all kinds of different apps and games, the gaming side will be enhanced with a game controller. Going head to head with devices like the OUYA and the Roku, combining the features of both into a small platform. This device will greatly help those that want to cut the cord to cable companies. Also combining the features of the Chromecast, the Nexus Player could be the one device that does it all.
