[Rumor] Google May Scrap Android Silver for Nexus 6; Plus Nexus 5 May Live On

Jul 29, 2014 - 9:10 AM - by dgstorm

Here's a great follow-up story to the one we posted yesterday regarding the rumored Motorola Nexus 6. First, there is supposedly insider intel which supports the idea that Google considered this Motorola Nexus 6 as soon as they sold Motorola to Lenovo.

In fact, according to "people with knowledge of the matter" selling Moto to Lenovo was a huge boon for Google, especially to create a Motorola Nexus device. Google reportedly relishes the idea of pairing some of the core technologies found in Android L with the Active Display and Touchless control tech found in the Moto X.

Additionally, it appears that Google may have ditched their Android Silver plans altogether in favor of this newly refreshed Nexus program. Apparently, the fact that Google’s Chief Business Officer Nikesh Arora (the man who spear-headed Android Silver) has left the company was also a big determining factor in this decision.

Supposedly, Arora and several of the folks on his team had envisioned Android Silver as a replacement for the Nexus and GPe program. Now that he is gone and Motorola is no longer owned by Google, there's nothing stopping a resurgence in the Nexus line instead of shifting gears to the Android Silver program.

Along with this report comes industry speculation that might excite you. Several pundits have pointed out that it is entirely likely Google plans to keep the Nexus 5 along with this new Nexus 6. There's no reason they can't simply do a refresh each year with slightly improved specs to keep up with the advances in technology. This would go against Google's previous procedure of having only one new Nexus smartphone at a time, but the 5.9-inch size of the Moto Nexus 6 could drop it into its own "phablet" category altogether.

This basically means that Shamu probably does not herald the end of the 5-inch form factor. If all of this proves to be true, then we will have the Nexus 5, the Nexus 6, the Nexus 9 and maybe the Nexus 10 if they continue that tablet too.

In many ways this makes much more sense than creating an entirely new branding called Android Silver. The Nexus name is already a well... [Read More]

[Rumor] Nexus 6 Smartphone Might be Made by Motorola

Jul 29, 2014 - 9:08 AM - by dgstorm

[Editor's Note: Oops. I forgot to post this here yesterday! Here it is and its follow up story will come soon.]

Definitely take this story with a heaping helping of salt, but the Holy Grail of Android smartphones might be upon us. The newest rumor is that Motorola is working on a 5.9-inch smartphone code-named Shamu, and that device will be the Google Nexus 6 smartphone.

According to this intel, Google felt it would never be viable for them to launch a Motorola Nexus device as long as they owned Motorola. This isn't meant to suggest that was the primary (or even secondary) reason they sold Motorola to Lenovo, it simply means that now they can entertain the possibility, and supposedly Motorola is high up on their list for the next Nexus phone.

On top of this information, we also have word that the phone will come with a fingerprint sensor and will likely launch in November.

We should remain skeptical for now, but feel free to do a secret happy dance when nobody is looking.

'No, I said...' New Google Now Feature Let's You Try Your Voice Command Again

Jul 09, 2014 - 9:36 AM - by dgstorm

Google Now is currently the smartest and most responsive voice activated software on the planet, but that doesn't mean it is flawless yet. It still has some learning to do before it can evolve to a higher level of intelligence and take over the world. In the mean-time, on the rare occasions when it doesn't quite get things right, the Google engineers gave it a new feature which gives it another chance to do better.

Now, Google Now lets you say "No, I said... XXXXX" to try again. You simply need to restate what you were trying to do or search for after saying that "No, I said... " line. This word correction feature isn't the only new trick taught to this not-so-old dog. Google Now also lets you...
