This Nexus launch is without precedent—the Nexus 6 is big, expensive, and compatible with all the major US carriers. It seems like Google is trying to make nice with the carriers too. Case in point, AT&T is selling a Nexus directly at launch for the first time. However, an image of the Nexus 6 posted on AT&T's site shows the Nexus 6 with an AT&T globe logo on the back. Yikes.

Are you a Verizon customer? Are you due for an upgrade on your 2-year contract? Well, go in armed with the knowledge that any 2-year agreement signed from today forward is going to have a substantially awful...er early termination clause.
The base fee of $350 is remaining the same - that's the not-bad news (I mean, it's obviously not good news). The problem is that until you're 8 full months into your contract, that ETF doesn't start declining. Read More
If you've got a Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 (or SGN1012014, as I like to call it) on T-Mobile, you may want to head into Settings > About tablet > Software updates and see if there's something waiting for you. Team Magenta started pushing the 4.4.4 update out today, which also brings Download Booster along with it. Fun times.
- Update to Android 4.4 (KitKat)
- Download Booster
That's essentially the bulk of it right there. Read More
Update: Let us not forget the Galaxy Tab S 8.4. AT&T has updated that device this week as well, bumping it up to KOT49H.T707AUCU1ANJ5 after a 32MB download. As for the changes, they're a yawn.
- Carrier Billing enhancements
- Updates to ATT Mail, Keeper, YPMobile
Those changes are largely the same as the Galaxy Tab S 10.5's OTA this week. This 58MB update left the device at build number KOT49H.T807AUCU1ANJ5. Read More
The Galaxy Note Edge is now available in the US from most of the major carriers, and to anyone out there who wants its intriguing curved strip of extra screen space, well, it's going to cost you. If you missed our last report, then you might want to sit down. This handset comes in at roughly $900 off-contract, and even if you're thinking of making a two-year commitment, you will still have to hand over the cost of one 32GB Nexus 5. Read More
Sprint's original announcement said that today would be the big day—you'd be able to wander into a Sprint store on November 14th and buy a Nexus 6. Well, it's not clear exactly what's going on. Sprint has put the Nexus 6 up on its website, but there's no firm ship date.
Last week's update to the Motorola Connect support app showed off the "Keylink," an accessory we hadn't seen before. Based on the shots of the app, it looked like a simple Bluetooth gadget that lived on your keyring and made it easy to find your keys from your phone, or vice versa. Now it looks like Motorola has officially launched the Keylink: one of our readers spotted at least one T-Mobile retail store selling it for $24.99. Read More
Yesterday AT&T announced that it would start offering the Nexus 6 pre-orders on November 12th, and as it turns out, that was a Nexus 6-related date that you could actually trust. The 12th is here, and pre-orders to get the Nexus 6 from the carrier are now available online and in stores. Read More
You know how no one will take your stupid money for a Nexus 6? Well, T-Mobile was supposed to start trading phones for money-dollars tomorrow (November 12th), but that's not happening anymore. The company has just announced that it's pushed back the N6 launch by one week to November 19th.
