Earlier today our friends at AndroidPolice.com reportedly confirmed that the next Nexus phone will in fact be a 'Nexus 6' made by Motorola and be a whopping 5.9 inches with a qhd resolution display (2560 x 1440).   It is modeled after the 2nd generation Moto X and includes a 13mp camera with OIS, front firing stereo speakers and all around top of the line specs.  It looks like a very impressive piece of hardware but again at a whopping 5.9 inches pushes the term 'phone' to its limits.

This seems all but certain and fits in with previous leaks so we'll be setting up a Nexus 6 Forum at http://Nexus6Forums.com over the next few hours (we never sleep).  Feel free to come by to discuss this first Google Nexus 'phablet' with some outstanding specs.


It's Back!!  The lowest price for a 32GB 2013 Nexus 7...  Grab a 32GB Nexus 2013 (Asus manufacturer refurbished) right now on Ebay for only $159.99 while supplies last. This is a full $110 off list of $269 for a brand new unit and the lowest price we've seen for a 2nd generation 2013 Nexus 7 32GB refurbished unit.  It comes with a 90 day Asus warranty in an Asus recertified brown box.  Full HD 1920 x 1200 display, Snapdragon 4 Pro processor, 2GB of RAM, etc.  Definitely gonna go fast so grab one at the link below.  Free Shipping too!

Personally, I wouldn't understand pricing in that $399 or $499 range.  I would expect $299/$349 for the 16GB/32GB.  There are so many decent Android tablets at this point from a range of manufacturers in the sub-$400 price range that it would only make sense for a Nexus device to be below that point imo.  But I guess we'll see.  Also, with the rather large bezels on the Nexus 7, I could see HTC making a Nexus 9 that came in at not that much bigger than the Nexus 7 but with a near bezel-less design.  I guess time will tell.  I'm about due for an upgrade though so as long as it's not overpriced I'll probably pick one up.

The leaks have been coming fast and furious about the Google HTC Nexus 9 folks.  Today, the Wall Street Journal reports we can expect this 64 bit Nvidia Tegra K1, 8.9 inch 2560 x 1440 resolution, Android 5.0 (Android L) monster of a tablet in under a month's time.  If you're a 1st or 2nd generation Nexus 7 owner and been wanting a slightly larger format tablet with killer specs, this looks like it's what you've been waiting for.  Please stop by Nexus9Forum.com and be a part of what is sure to be the #1 Nexus 9 community on the web.  Of course Nexus7Forum.com will continue to be THE place to be for Nexus 7 aficionados but hey, if you can swing it, why not have both!

A new Nexus tablet...the Nexus 9 is rumored to be close to introduction and it's set to be a powerhouse with an Nvidia K1 processor, full HD display at a minimum and possibly higher and even the possibility of an accessory 'go pro' type camera that could work seamlessly with it.  Would you purchase a Nexus 9 tablet if it's introduced and let us know if you're a current Nexus 7 owner or not and if that influences your decision to buy a slightly larger Nexus 9 tablet.


If you've been in the market for a quality 8 inch+ tablet and want a snappy current generation Snapdragon 600 1.7GHz processor plus Full HD 1920 x 1200 resolution display to boot then this deal might be for you.  The highly rated LG G Pad 8.3 inch tablet is on sale on Ebay in both black and white models.  Now these are manufacturer refurbished models that come with a 90 day LG warranty.   They are Android 4.4 upgradeable, come with a 4600 mAh lithium-polymer battery for all day+ use and come in the original box.  They also have front and rear cameras and all the cool LG software tweaks like multasking with 'Slide Aside'  You can learn more details about the LG G Pad at this link or just hit the link below and pick one up on Ebay.  It's an awesome tablet for those looking for something a bit bigger than the Nexus 7.

I pretty much agree with S. Prime on this.  I think that as long as you need a phone or tablet to tether to for the best functions then smart watches will be relegated to geek or niche devices.   Only when they are stand alone devices that can make calls and access the net will they have a shot in getting to the mainstream.  The problem is that even if they are standalone for phone calls, the screens will never be big enough to web browse comfortably.  I think 10 years from now we'll each have a large screen phone/phablet on us but a smart watch?  I'm not so sure.  Regardless, it's still interesting to follow how the technology develops.

I know, I know...this is an Android forum.  However a sizable minority also use Apple products so we try and cover both OS's in our network of communities.  Be nice!

With the introduction of the Apple Watch during Apple's special event on September 9th, 2014 in Cupertino, the company has entered the competitive smart watch market.  We'd like to welcome you to a new forum we just started where we hope to build the most dynamic Apple Watch community anywhere.  Priced starting at $349 and available in three versions, the Apple Watch, Apple Watch Sport and Apple Watch Edition, each also allows for an almost limitless variety of bands from leather to rubber to stainless steel and other materials and designs.  The Apple Watch is expected to arrive in early 2015, and promises to be a breakthrough device and one that all Apple aficionados will want.  Please join us at www.theapplewatchforum.com. And remember, for our Android aficionados interested in Android smart watches we also have an Android Wear forum at www.androidwearforum.com.  Hopefully we'll see you at both!


Something happened a few days ago that didn't get much coverage in the major tech press.  That something was the inadvertent confirmation of an HTC built Nexus 9 featuring a K1 processor by Nvidia and expected to be launched in 3Q 2014.   This confirmation comes via legal document that was released on the Nvidia website as part of a law suit it is involved in against Qualcomm and Samsung about some infringing patents regarding an Nvidia GPU.  The specific text cited says: “The HTC Nexus 9, expected in the third quarter of 2014, is also expected to use the Tegra K1.”  This goes along with the rumors that have been going on for the past couple of months regarding Google's successor to the Nexus 7 and all we are waiting on now are exact specs and pricing as well as a date.  The above pic is another leak that was unconfirmed but seems to feature the specs expected of the upcoming Nexus 9 'Volantis' tablet by HTC and shows specs such as 2048x1440 display, 64bit Logan K1 processor, stereo speakers and super thin design. So what do you think?  Will you be putting the HTC Nexus 9 on your holiday shopping list?  Make sure to check out our new community dedicated to Google and HTC's new tablet at www.Nexus9Forum.com

The Lounge: Off Topic Forum / Nexus 7,8,9...or 12?

As some of you may know there's been endless rumors of just what the follow up to the Nexus 7 2nd generation will be.  A 3rd generation Nexus 7?  A Nexus 8?  How about a Nexus 9?!   That's right, one of the more recent reports is that Google might actually have a 9 inch tablet as the replacement but that's not all.  There's also reports that Google might actually come out with a new line of 3 tablets.  That's right...3!   A 7 inch, 9 inch and 12 inch.  Most reports have HTC as the manufacturer and have these featuring state of the art processors and new high resolution screens that exceed 1080p.  So what are your thoughts folks?  Would you buy a 9 inch tablet?  How about a 12?  Or is the 7 inch original the best way to go?

Agreed.  It's a great little device.  Make sure to check out our Chromecast Forum at www.ChromecastForum.net.


I don't post many non-Nexus 7 deals on the site but this one is good enough to do so.   If you've ever researched or wanted a wireless bluetooth rechargeable speaker with its own amplification and awesome sound then you know the Jawbone Jambox sets the standard.  It usually lists for $150 but you can grab a remanufactured, like new unit in one of any of 10 color choices for $100 off...only $49.99.   That's a ridiculously low price for one of these and I have one myself and can attest that it's awesome.  The sound has great bass and fills the room or the yard enabling you to share any music or streaming content from your tablet with everyone.  It's great for movies too if you don't want to listen to the small tablet speakers or use headphones.  This offer is on Ebay's daily deals right now so grab one before they run out and make sure to pick the color you want before you click the buy button.


The original 2012 Nexus 7 was the tablet that really changed the tablet landscape and put 7 inch models on the map.  The 2012 model had the Tegra 3 processor, Wifi, a great high resolution IPS screen with 1280 x 800 resolution and listed for $249 for the 32GB model.  Right now there's a great deal on the 2012 Nexus 7 with 32GB of memory for only $99 for a remanufactured unit.  The Tegra 3 is still a very powerful processor that will run just about all your favorite apps and games just fine.   At $99 it's a full $150 off the original price and while not the latest and greatest model is great if you're on a budget or if you'd like a 2nd tablet for vacations, the office or the kids.  You can grab one while they last at the link below.


Chromecast now lets you mirror your screen natively via your Android tablet or phone.  No 3rd party app required.  This was a functionality that was discussed and promised during Google I/O a couple of weeks ago and now they've followed through.  Chromecast apps will now show a 'cast screen' option and Nexus devices will even have the option in the settings menu so you don't have to use the Chromecast app itself.  This is an awesome feature that makes your Android device and Chromecast even more powerful.  I'll be surfing my web and using my big screen tv while controlling it all from my Nexus 7 from now on.  The update is rolling out as we speak and over the next few days in both the Chromecast app via a 1.7 update as well as individual updates for various phones by Samsung, LG, HTC and others.
