[Weekend Poll] Did You Buy A Moto 360?

If you're in one of the eligible countries, you're probably well aware that the Moto 360 has begun shipping, so we want to know if you bought one.

The Moto 360 is easily the most anticipated Android Wear device to date, and possibly even the most awaited smartwatch. Its semi-circular display and very modern but still watch-like design have been huge factors here - I would definitely agree the 360 is still the best-looking smartwatch we've seen, even compared to concept hardware.

[Weekend Poll] IFA Is Coming: What New Gadgets Are You Most Excited About?

This weekend's poll is going to be a bit different, in that it's sort of a two-parter. Starting on Wednesday, a slew of press conferences and announcements by various Android OEMs will be taking place at the IFA electronics trade show in Berlin - we'll be there to cover it, too! What we want to know is just what announcement you're really on the lookout for.

I've included a list of products we have a good feeling will be at the show (or straight-up confirmation), but feel free to head down to the comments and voice your answer if it's not featured in the poll.

[Weekend Poll] G Watch R: Hot Or Not?

Granted, it's not a pretty render, but it is a render of LG's upcoming G Watch R - a smartwatch that appears to be sporting a full circular display (no Moto 360 cutout) with more classic chronograph styling. Motorola's Moto 360, on the other hand, is just a sexy circle from the future.

LG's design would seem to appeal to a more traditional watch buyer, someone who wants a smartwatch that looks a lot like, well, a regular watch.

[Weekend Poll] At $250, Will You Buy A Moto 360?

Earlier this morning, US big box electronics retailer Best Buy let the product page for the Moto 360 loose a little early, and with that slipup came some seemingly concrete information. The Moto 360 will cost $250 - a price which likely comes in at or below most estimates we've seen for the device to date.

There's still no solid ship date, but this number has probably sealed the deal for a lot of you in regard to deciding whether or not to purchase a 360.

[Weekend Poll] US Readers: Who Is Your Wireless Carrier?

I know, US only polls do exclude a lot of our most loyal followers, but today's poll is about taking a head count in a turbulent time for the US wireless industry. Dan Hesse was just ousted as CEO of Sprint, and the carrier's parent company SoftBank has allegedly ended its plans for a takeover-merger of competitor T-Mobile. T-Mobile is also poised to surpass Sprint as America's #3 wireless carrier by postpaid subscribers, with CEO John Legere predicting it will happen before the year is out.

[Weekend Poll] The Google Now Launcher Is Now Available For Most Devices - Are You Using It?

To the excitement of many, Google has finally made the Google Now Launcher available for all Android devices running Android 4.1 or later.

The GNL is what Google thinks your Android device should look like, in a basic sense. A dedicated Google Now homescreen pane, a permanent Google Search shortcut at the top of every screen, and a very bare-bones app drawer. It's simple, fast, and Google-y. What's interesting is that, despite some degree of love for the GNL in the wider Android community, it's really not an enthusiast's launcher at all.

[Weekend Poll] Would You Buy A 5.9" Nexus Phone?

We've come to have reason to believe that Motorola and possibly Google are working on a 5.9" phone codenamed Shamu. That's about all we know. We know it showed up in Google's issue tracker, and that the issue was created by a known testing company who check prerelease hardware for just this sort of thing. We know the device is running a Google-built kernel and that this points to a Nexus or, at least, something Nexus-like.

[Weekend Poll] Will You Buy NVIDIA's Upcoming Shield Tablet?

On Friday, the proverbial whole kit and caboodle of NVIDIA Shield Tablet information leaked to the public ahead of the device's seemingly imminent announcement. It goes on sale, allegedly, in less than two weeks, and will cost $299 or $399, depending on which storage model and connectivity (Wi-Fi 16GB, LTE 32GB) you want.

It's also the first widely-available device to be released with NVIDIA's Tegra K1 chip, albeit a quad-core A15 CPU and not the upcoming Denver 64-bit dual-core architecture, and that's kind of exciting.

[Weekend Poll] What Keyboard Are You Using On Your Android Phone?

About two years ago, we asked you the same question we're asking today. But two years ago is a long, long time in Android terms. A lot has changed in that time, and there are substantially more software keyboards to choose from (respectable ones, at least) than there were then. At least, I think so.

SwiftKey is likely still the most popular third-party keyboard on Android, that much we can probably assume, but I have to wonder: how much headway have Google, Swype, GO, Fleksy, and others made in the last two years?

[Weekend Poll] Did You Pre-Order An Android Wear Watch?

This weekend's question is an easy one: did you put down your cash for one of the newly-available Android Wear devices, the Samsung Gear Live or the LG G Watch? Both devices are available on Google Play in a handful of countries around the world right now, and are priced to compete. The G Watch comes in around 10% pricier than the Gear Live, though it has a larger battery than its Samsung counterpart.
