I still have my 2nd generation Nexus 7 and use it for reading and sometimes light document creation with a wireless keyboard. I would like to see Google make another 7 inch tablet but I'm not holding my breath. As phones got larger and average screen sizes increased, most people use their phablets as tablets. I guess the best screen to use is the one you have with you at the time. I still think the movie/tv viewing and document creation on a tablet are better than on a phone. Maybe one day they'll come out with some new feature that becomes the 'killer app' for a tablet form factor. Interestingly, I see the most common use for tablets these days to be using it as a way for children to keep entertained...playing games, using educational software and watching movies. I see more young children using tablets than adults.

If you've been waiting to buy a really top-notch audiophile quality bluetooth speaker then today is the perfect day to grab an awesome deal on one of two Denon bluetooth speakers.
First up is the Denon HEOS 1. This is the smallest member of Denon's audiophile multiroom system that can be used either independently or networked with other HEOS speakers such as the HEOS 3, 5 or 7. This is the newest version of the HEOS 1 and includes bluetooth built-in. It offers awesome sound from its two drivers and while it is a plug-in unit, you can purchase the optional 'Go Pack' which includes a rechargeable lithium ion battery. This new version of the HEOS 1 also includes high resolution audio support as well as support for streaming services such as Amazon Prime Music, Pandora, Spotify, TuneIn, iHeartRadio, SiriusXM, SoundCloud, TIDAL and Rhapsody. Normally priced at $199, there's a special sale going on right now for $100 off! That's right...the HEOS 1 is just $99 for a limited time. You can grab one at the link below.
Ok, so say you want an all-in-one unit that includes a built-in lithium battery and will provide you with knock your socks off sound in a portable package and you plan on using the speaker exclusively with your phone or tablet to stream music and don't care about multiroom networking. If that's the case then the Denon Envaya DSB200 is the speaker for you. This speaker will literally knock your socks off
. It has some of the most powerful bass and the fullest 'soundscape' and depth of sound of any portable bluetooth speaker i've ever heard. Don't believe me? Just read some of the reviews and they'll back me up. This thing ROCKS. It has a 100mm bass radiator in addition to two 57mm full range drivers and has all kinds of special electronics voodoo added in from high resolution aptX® CSR decoding, MaxxAudio® technology and even includes 4 different colored grill inserts to customize the look of the device. Normally the Envaya DSB200 would set you back $199...and in fact that's the price it's still selling for on the Denon website...but it's on sale on Amazon right now for just $79.99! That's an amazing deal. If you've been looking for a bluetooth speaker that has AWESOME sound quality...you need to grab one of these right now. I'm serious...this thing will blow away any other portable bluetooth speaker even 3x the price.

Google introduced their most powerful Chromecast yet. The Chromecast Ultra with faster performance, higher quality and most of all full support for 4K Ultra HD and HDR streaming and 4k devices. Both Netflix and YouTube already offer 4K content and thousands of apps and hundreds of thousands of tv shows and video are available for viewing. Able to be used either wirelessly connected to your tv through Wifi or through a built-in ethernet adapter for those preferring a wired connection, Chromecast Ultra offers faster performance than any previous Chromecast and supports just about all Android, Apple and Windows devices. Chromecast Ultra will cost $69, so a bit more than the standard Chromecast which still sells for $35. The Ultra should be available in the coming weeks. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Ignition-Coil-Kit-Set-of-6-NEW-for-BMW-3-5-Z-Series-2-3L-2-5L-2-8L-3-0L-E39-E46-/371662495853?rmvSB=true&catId=6000

Rumors are about that Google may be retiring the 'Nexus' brand and instead introduce new phones and tablets under the 'Google Pixel' label. While two 'Pixel' phones have been rumored for a long time just recently we started to hear about this Nexus 7 update which presumably would be called the Pixel 7 or perhaps the Pixel 7P. This new tablet is expected to be made by Huawai, the same manufacturer who brought us the Nexus 6P. Interestingly, the company recently applied for a copyright on the name Nexus 7P, but seeing as how Google has decided to go with the 'Pixel' branding for the new Nexus phones, many are assuming that they will do the same with their tablets, hence Pixel 7P seems a safe bet as the name of the device. Specs being bandied about include a 7 inch 2560x1440 resolution display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor w/Adreno 530 graphics processing unit, 64GB built-in storage, 4GB of RAM and a 13 MP rear camera. It is expected to be introduced on October 4th during Google's event in San Francisco and would be the first tablet to run their latest version of the Android operating system code-named 'Nougat'. So what do you think? Is this a worthy upgrade that would merit your bucks Let us know in the comments.source

Thanks for posting. Yes, and two new Google 'Pixel' phones and a 4k Chromecast are all expected...probably at the October 4th Google event.

Nothing solid. Latest I heard is the new Nexus phones will be introduced in September and that a tablet (Nexus 7) would also be introduced at the same time along with the new OS.

Just added a capital letter 'C' to the tabs of your browser when you have Nexus 7 Forum open. The 'C' stands for Community and this way if you have a series of tabs open instead of wondering what that empty page symbol tab is you'll know you have one of our Communities open.

Now's a great time to pick up a Chromecast and Chromecast Audio. Google has them on sale 'everywhere' for $5 each. Most places have free shipping (including our links below). Grab a few Chromecast Audios to breathe new life into your speakers or pick up a Chromecast for every tv in your home and ''cast" movies, games, apps and the internet to the big screen from your phone and tablet. It really changes the entire way you use your tv and it's pretty amazing. Definitely a 'must have' for all Android and iPhone users alike. https://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B012ZXJNFW

Ever feel like going on adventure and wish there was a resource that could instantly tell you all the cool stuff around you to do? Well that's what Local Guru does. It's an amazing new app...really more than an app...a great resource...that let's you instantly see what cool adventures, activities and interests are close by and hooks you up with a 'guru' to lead you on your adventure or activity. Using your location you can see a list of adventures led by a local expert or 'guru'. Perhaps you want to take a hike, or learn to surf or go horseback riding or a mountain biking adventure. It's a great tool to explore wherever you are and geared to the outdoors adventurer in us all. Even better, it lets you filter for price and proximity to your location. You also can click on the map to any location and do a search in that area to see what is available in other areas. Just think of the possibilities of planning a trip or vacation and being able to tap the location on the map and book a cool adventure where you're going to be.
Now the founder of 'Local Guru' is a great guy named Joseph I had the pleasure of meeting recently in Santa Monica. Joseph and his team put a lot of effort into procuring only quality adventures and activities led by knowledgeable experts in whatever the adventure is. The app is constantly being improved and refined and new features are being introduced all the time to ensure that the adventures you go on are of the highest quality. Give 'Local Guru' a try and if you have any ideas to make it even more useful feel free to send them a note. Make sure any local experts and 'gurus' you know sign up to offer their activities through Local Guru's app and help spread the word and make Local Guru the national sensation it deserves to be. Grab the free app at the link below.

The Android ecosystem has a nearly limitless number of apps, games, movies and music to enjoy through Google's Play Store. But wouldn't it be nice if you can have all that fun on your living room or bedroom television all the time, even when you're not using your phone? Play games, use apps, watch movies...all on the big screen and without having to use your phone to stream. use the Nexus Player to stream to all your mobile devices. It's a great compliment to all your Android devices and you can get a dedicated game controller for that arcade experience as well.
Now you might be wondering...well what's the difference between Chromecast and Nexus Player? Well while Chromecast can just 'cast' what's on your phone or tablet onto a larger screen it doesn't have it's own custom user interface like the Nexus Player. The Nexus Player is much more akin to Amazon's Fire TV or Apple TV and lets you access Android TV on your television with the Google Play Store. You can also use Nexus Player with its own remote control and have custom recommendations come up as well as view your entire library of content on your big television screen as well as play multiplayer games which you can sync across multiple devices. It's also much more powerful than Chromecast on the inside.
The Nexus Player is powered by a 1.8GHz Intel Atom quad-core processor, Imagination PowerVR Series 6 graphics and 1GB of RAM, and it has 8GB of storage. There's support for the lastest 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.1, plus an HDMI output for connecting it to your TV. It's a great addition to any Android household and normally it's $99 on the Google site. You can also find it in some other stores for $89.99 but for just today Best Buy has it as a daily deal at only $49.99. That's a screaming deal and a great opportunity to pick up a Nexus Player at half price. Use the link below and get yours before the price goes back up!

How many times have you had your phone or tablet with you and found you really wished you had a portable keyboard to write out a long message, email or perhaps even get some work done while at a cafe. You struggle to compose your work on the touchscreen and you've thought of buying one of those wireless bluetooth keyboards but always felt they were almost as big as a traditional keyboard...so why bother? Well here's a great option that is both small enough to leave in your bag, backpack or purse without ever feeling like you're lugging around a keyboard, while also providing a quality typing experience that is very similar to the high quality Microsoft Surface keyboard that is widely acclaimed.
Microsoft's foldable portable keyboard gives you just about everything you'd look for in such a device...portability as well as tactile physical keys and great battery life. What Microsoft has done is split the keyboard into two sections, with an inch wide middle canyon that it folds across. Now some of the reviews mention that the key size has been slightly altered in order to fit this configuration and that it does a take a bit of adjustment to get used to it. But after using it for a little while you quickly become accustomed to the modified layout and are able to type quite handily on it...certainly a great improvement to typing on a tiny screen of a phone or tablet. Normally the Microsoft foldable keyboard lists for $99 and if you look around you can find it in the $70-$80 range, nut just for today Best Buy has it as one of their 'Daily Deals' for only $49.99. That's a bargain and the lowest price we've ever seen this cool device. If you're been looking for a quality, super portable keyboard to use with your phone or tablet that gets up to 3 months battery life between charge...grab one at the link below before the price goes back up.
