A new screenshot has hit the web of the rumored HTC Nexus 9 Android tablet racing its way through an AnTuTu benchmark. The tablet scores a ridiculous 45,923! It looks like that new NVIDIA Tegra K1 architecture and 192-core Cuda are doing some serious work.
Of course, it's always a good idea to point out that benchmark scores to not translate into real-world performance necessarily. Despite that, this score is so high, we would be surprised if the performance on this tablet is not noticeably quicker than anything else out there.
As a sidenote, the screen cap also includes hints that the device will include LTE (or that there will at least be an LTE variant of it). This is getting more and more exciting the more we hear about it.

Trying to cut through the confusion of all the latest Motorola smartphones news is like trying to cut down a tree with a butter knife. Despite this, we are going to attempt to disseminate the latest intel, although we suspect it might simply add more to the confusion. Today's story only refers the Moto S, the Moto X+1 and the Nexus X.
Supposedly, Motorola is testing a 5.2-inch version of the Moto S and a 5.9-inch version of the Moto S. The word on the street is that they will be gauging whether to release a 5.2-inch version of the device based upon public reaction of the Moto X+1. Because of this, Google may be planning to clean up some of the unused devices in the supply chain. According to these supply chain sources, Google may repurpose some of those 5.2-inch Moto S devices into 5.2-inch versions of the Nexus X, even though the primary version of the Nexus X will be a 5.9-inch device.
Beyond this industry speculation regarding hop-scotching devices, we also have additional confirmation that Google plans to launch the Nexus X before Halloween. Sound off and let us know which size Nexus X you would prefer, if this intel turns out to be true.

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]
