If you've been keeping up with any tech blogs over the past couple of weeks, you know that the next Nexus phone has been a hot topic. We saw rumored specs and rumored hardware photos that only added to the confusion created back when we first reported on a possible 5.9" Nexus. Today, however, we have something special to share. We've been provided with new information about the next Nexus phone, and can confirm that it will be a 5.9" device called the Nexus 6.

Chromecast-Thumb

When the Chromecast first launched, it came with three free months of Netflix. That was a great deal, because at $7.99 a month, this meant that buyers were getting back the majority of the money they paid for the device. Well, Google's next Chromecast offer utilizes similar appeal. From October 1st until the end of this year, the company will offer two free months of Hulu Plus with the purchase of every new Chromecast.

Project-Ara-Photo2

After bringing Motorola's ATAP in-house, the company has forged ahead on Project Ara. Now project head Paul Eremenko has offered up a few new details of how Ara will work. Basically, the phone can be taken apart while it's on.

A few users have been reporting a new Google quirk today, but it might not be all that new. An icon has started showing up in search results next to links for mobile-optimized pages. Something like this was in testing as far back as 2012, but this seems to be part of a separate occurrence.

Samsung is really the only game in town if you want an Android slate larger than 10-inches. The Galaxy Tab Pro 12.2 is a pricey device, though. The retail figure is $649.99, but it usually sells for $549.99. You can get it for more than $200 less on eBay right now, provided you don't mind a refurbished unit.

Last Updated: September 30th, 2014

Dear Android Police readers living in New Zealand, we have good news. Google Play gift cards are now going live in your area. This is broadly speaking, of course. We can't say whether cards will start appearing at the shop up the road, but Google has listed several retail partners that will carry them. Countdown, JB HI-FI, Noel Leeming, the Warehouse, and Warehouse Stationary have all made the list. You can head out to one right away to see if they're in stock, but you might want to check beforehand.

Android Police coverage: [MMMBBBAAA] Goat Simulator Arrives On Android In All Its Buggy, Insane, Physics-Defying Glory

The king of kook, the duke of deranged, the national champion of nonsensical, Goat Simulator is simultaneously a free-roaming absurdity of a game and a conceptual rebuke of the Boring Stuff Simulator 2014 genre.

The MOTA SmartRing has reached its $100,000 funding goal on Indiegogo, so the leagues of people who pledged support for this Bluetooth-connected notification ring can now look forward to receiving their finished product in the spring of next year. And by leagues of people, we mean roughly thirteen hundred, of which around a hundred folks just want T-shirts. A thousand people said they were willing to pay at least $60 to own one of these snazzy rings, which isn't much when we're talking about hardware.
