It's update Wednesday, and you know what that means. Well, yeah... updates. I guess it's sort of in the name. But at any rate, lately that specifically means material themes are coming to all your favorite Google apps. Today the new version of Google Keyboard is available to all in the Play Store. Or rather, it will be soon. You don't have to wait for it to reach your account, though.

Flags-Thumb

Here's something most of us probably weren't aware of. Since Unicode 6.0, Emoji flags have each been given a two-letter regional indicator listed in ISO_3166-1. Until now, only ten of these flags actually showed up as images on Android. This remains the case on other platforms, such as iOS, Windows, and Mac OS X. Instead of an image, you see the two characters associated with each country. You can test this out for yourself by going over to Emojipedia and seeing which flags load (the ten standard ones are placed separately at the top).

keylink
Last Updated: November 14th, 2014

Last week's update to the Motorola Connect support app showed off the "Keylink," an accessory we hadn't seen before. Based on the shots of the app, it looked like a simple Bluetooth gadget that lived on your keyring and made it easy to find your keys from your phone, or vice versa. Now it looks like Motorola has officially launched the Keylink: one of our readers spotted at least one T-Mobile retail store selling it for $24.99.

Last Updated: November 14th, 2014

It's really only been a few months since Android Wear officially launched, but already it feels like we've been waiting ages for certain features. The wait, it appears, is almost over. In the second part of Phandroid's Android Wear leak, we get a look at what's coming in the Android 5.0 build for Wear, and it's basically addressing everything we've been complaining about.

Nexus6-Thumb

Yesterday AT&T announced that it would start offering the Nexus 6 pre-orders on November 12th, and as it turns out, that was a Nexus 6-related date that you could actually trust. The 12th is here, and pre-orders to get the Nexus 6 from the carrier are now available online and in stores.

Sometimes late nights lead to interesting tips finding their way into our inbox. Tonight was just such a night. If you've been waiting to get a taste of Lollipop on your Nexus 7 2012, you're in luck. We just happen to have signed factory images for Google's original 7" tablet. The build is LRX21P, which lines up with builds we've seen on the Nexus 9 and Nexus Player (LRX21L and LRX21M respectively).

DISCLAIMER: I bought an iPad Air 2, and I bought said iPad Air 2 after owning the first iPad Air since launch day last year. I sold my iPad Air so I could do this. I really like my iPad Air 2, it's pretty great. I also really like Android. The following article contains my opinions, anecdotal evidence, subjective analysis thereof, and did I mention opinions? There are opinions. Also, this article is very long, so many sections just have side-by-sides of random Android vs iOS app comparisons presented without comment.

Those of you with phones not made by HTC can feel free to continue on to the next post. I'm sorry to have wasted your time... I assume if you are still reading at this point, you own an HTC device. Good, those other phones suck, right? Let's say nasty things about people who own those phones behind their backs. Before that, there's an update to BlinkFeed in the Play Store.

MotoG2ndGen-Thumb

Less than a week ago, we received word that Motorola had already started its soak test for an over-the-air update bringing Lollipop to the Moto X 2014 Pure Edition. With this news, there's a good chance the phone will get Android 5.0 before Nexus devices (not counting the Nexus 6 and Nexus 9, which ship with the software). Now a tipster has come to us saying that the company has begun a test for this year's Moto G as well.

You know how no one will take your stupid money for a Nexus 6? Well, T-Mobile was supposed to start trading phones for money-dollars tomorrow (November 12th), but that's not happening anymore. The company has just announced that it's pushed back the N6 launch by one week to November 19th.
