The Nexus 6 is great. It's also expensive, which is why the current $150 discount in the Google Store and other retailers is going over so well. But if you act quickly you can get Google's flagship phone for even less: an eBay seller is offering the standard 32GB blue model for $439.99, just over two hundred bucks off of the retail price.

[Updated] [Rumor] No Nexus Tablet In 2015, But Two Phones—A 5.2-Inch LG (Code Name Bullhead) And A 5.7-Inch Huawei (Code Name Angler)

The Nexus 6 was a break from the past for the Nexus program with its high price tag and massive size, but it was probably an emergency replacement after the collapse of Android Silver. We've been wondering if Google would recommit to the Nexus program, and it's sounding like yes—in a big way.

[Probably Not Ready Yet] Verizon Appears To Be Gearing Up To Activate Any Nexus 6 Through Normal Procedures, Not Just Ones Sold By The Carrier, And There's An OTA Going Out For It

As is well known by now, Verizon Wireless has, thus far, refused to activate any Nexus 6 that wasn't purchased from the carrier, at least through official procedures. Thankfully, it would appear that things are ready to change.

Nexus 6 owners on Verizon are now reporting that their non-VZW Nexus 6s are showing up on their accounts as "Nexus 6 Non VZW," rather than just a generic "Non-VZW Device" as it had in the past.

We've heard a number of rumors about Google launching its own Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO), codenamed Nova.

The Nexus 9 Is Finally Available In 'Sand' Color On The US Play Store, 32GB Only For The Moment

When Google and HTC announced the Nexus 9, they showed it off in the now-standard black, white, and gold "sand" color options. The off-brown color wasn't seen on launch day, though considering the low initial manufacturing runs that Nexus devices seem cursed with, that's not overly surprising. In the small hours of this morning the sand option appeared on the Play Store in the United States - you can pick up a 32GB model now for $479.
