ZOMG! Volantis? Is it time for Volantis? You know you were thinking that, but we just don't know what's going on. All we can say for certain is that Google's Play Store in the US has no stock of the WiFi N7 or the LTE versions with AT&T or T-Mobile SIMs. The only version you can get is the "GSM Networks" LTE tablet.
It looks like Google is serious about getting the "L" preview out to developers in all of its forms, even as code. That's right, some of the source code is already live on AOSP!
It looks like all of the recent Nexus devices are covered - everything from the 2012 Nexus 7 up through to the Nexus 5. Of course, just because branches have been published for these devices, it is not absolute confirmation that this entire list of devices will receive an official L release. Read More
I don't need to tell you this is a good deal – we've seen it pop up before and it sold out pretty fast. Today you can get the Nexus 7 in either 16GB or 32GB sizes for $170 and $130 respectively, but it's US-only.
The 2013 Nexus 7 is approaching a year old now, but that time has done little to slow this 7-inch slate down. New models are still zippy and more than capable of handling most of what the Play Store has to offer. So when the tablet is available at a discounted price, it's worth pondering whether you or someone you know is in need of such a solid piece of tech. Read More
Yesterday was a relatively big day for Android, at least compared to our regularly scheduled programming - Google sent us a gift in the form of the 4.4.3 update, available immediately via factory images and in AOSP. The problem with factory images, however, is that they require an unlocked bootloader to flash, so many of you opt in to wait for the respective OTAs.
The first such OTA has just arrived - it's for the 2013 Nexus 7 Wi-Fi (not for LTE yet), also known as Razor. Read More
The current Nexus 7 goes for $269.99, and while we regularly come across deals on used or refurbished models, it's still pretty exciting when new models are available at discounted prices. This time we've come across the 7-inch tablet selling on eBay for $60 off. This brings the price down to a slightly more tempting $209.99. To make things even better, the shipping is free.
It's not everyday that people can pick up a new 2013 Nexus 7 at less than the regular price. Read More
Google doesn't so much hate Europe as it seems to be woefully indifferent to the plight of Android users in many of those nations who often lack choices in awesome devices. Well, things are looking up for a few more countries today. The Google Play device section is open to users in Norway and Switzerland starting now.

It's really been raining Nexus 7 deals lately. This time the 16GB N7 is available as a refurbished unit from eBay Daily Deals for a mere $139.99. That's $90 off the Google Play price.
If you were to head to the Play Store right now and pick up a 16GB Nexus 7, you'd shell out $230. While it's worth every penny of that asking price, you could save yourself nearly $100 by instead opting to grab a refurbished model from eBay. With recertified devices currently selling for $140 on the 'bay, there really isn't much of a reason not to own one at this point. Read More
