[Update: ZIP Files] The HTC One M7 And M8 Google Play Edition Are Receiving An Android 5.0.1 OTA Update Now

Lollipop is slowly, slowly making its way to all of the Nexus and Google Play Edition devices available (yes, N7 LTE owners, we hear you). If you purchased the "pure," AOSP-packing version of either the HTC One M7 from 2013 or the flagship One M8 earlier this year, you should be getting an over-the-air update to Android 5.0 soon. We're seeing tips from owners of both Google Play Edition phones.

And surprisingly, it looks like both phones are in fact getting Android 5.0.1, the ever-so-slightly newer edition of Lollipop that should fix some of the initial problems discovered after large-scale software releases.

PSA: The Nexus 9 Folio Keyboard Case Has Dropped By $42 To $88 On Amazon—Recent Buyers Should Go Request A Price Match Refund Stat

The Nexus 9's folio keyboard case is an expensive accessory, even by Google's standards. The product, which both protects the tablets and supplies a Bluetooth keyboard, comes in at $129.99. But Amazon has recently dropped its price to $88, a difference of $42.

The case is already out of stock, but if you recently purchased one at its previous price, you can get Amazon to refund you the difference. Artem was able to get a refund despite pre-ordering one back in October, just by contacting customer support.

It Looks Like HTC Is Fixing The Crappy Volume And Power Buttons On Newer Nexus 9s

Initial reactions to the Nexus 9 have been less than stellar, to say the least. In David Ruddock's review, one of many sour points for the hardware was the volume and power buttons:

...the volume rocker and power buttons on the Nexus 9, for example, are simply bad. They're squishy, have almost no travel, and provide very little feedback unless you know the exact angle to hit them at.

It looks like manufacturer HTC may be addressing at least some of the problems with the initial batch of tablets, its first since the HTC Jetstream way back in 2011.

Leaked Screenshots Of Lollipop On The HTC One M8 Show How Sense May Look On Top Of Android 5.0

Our Nexus phones and tablets may have tasted Lollipop now, but we're still waiting for other devices to get to the sweetness of Android 5.0. This update brings the most significant changes we've seen since Ice Cream Sandwich, only much of Google's visual overhaul will disappear behind various manufacturers' custom UIs. That leaves us to wonder just how much of Lollipop folks will get to see on devices such as the HTC One M8.

HTC BlinkFeed Updated With Recommendations, Easier Subscribing, And More

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.

HTC Points And Shoots Its Standard Camera App Into The Play Store

HTC's camera has become the company's latest piece of stock software to enter the Play Store. Here the app will sit on virtual shelves until the time comes for the company to push out future updates to its existing devices in a way that will no longer require a full-on firmware update.

HTC Camera provides a compelling software experience with many options tucked away underneath the surface, but it's held back on flagships by rear-facing hardware with relatively low megapixel counts.

HTC Weather Hovers Over The Play Store, Forecast Says It Should Only Affect A Few Devices

HTC has dropped its Weather app into the Play Store. Forecasts suggest that it will only impact people who own one of the manufacturer's more recent phones running Android 4.4 or higher. Even then, there's a slight chance that it won't work on certain seemingly eligible devices just yet. With any luck, this problem will dissipate over the coming days.

HTC Weather can take the place of your local weather forecaster. Instead of waiting for the evening report (or just googling it), this app can be all you need to keep up with the forecast over the next seven days.

HTC RE Android App Hits Google Play So You Can Manage Content And Actually See What Your Camera Is Recording

The HTC RE is the kind of camera that doesn't come with a viewfinder. Similar to GoPro's action-oriented video recorders, the RE is something that you wear while doing something active or hold pointed vaguely towards something of interest.

The RE doesn't require a paired device to work, but if you really need to see what the device is picking up, you can turn to the companion app. HTC has dropped it into the Play Store for users to install on their smartphones regardless of make or model.

HTC Desire EYE and RE Camera Are Coming To AT&T November 7th, Customers Can Save $50 By Buying Them Together

The HTC Desire EYE is a quirky camera that appears to be worth a look, especially when it's looking back at you. This phone is notable not for its specs (though those are nice too), but its 13MP front-facing camera. That's right. HTC has decided that this handset will be able to capture as many pixels from the front as it can from the back.

This handset is an AT&T exclusive, and now we have a launch date: November 7th.

HTC Copies And Pastes Its File Manager Into The Play Store

File managers aren't flashy or particularly exciting apps, but they're definitely a necessity. HTC has taken to adding a number of its core Sense apps to the Play Store, and now the file manager is taking up residence.
