The Nexus 6 is the first Nexus phone to have an official home on all four big US carriers. That means there are bound to be some carrier-specific updates, even for a Nexus phone. T-Mobile recently hinted that 5.1.1 was on the way with WiFi calling, and now we've got a leak from Sprint that says 5.1.1 (LMY47Z) will be out on May 26th.
We've seen the LG G4 announcement, we've reviewed it, and we know all five of the major carriers will sell the device. Now it's just a matter of finding out when.
Today Sprint has announced that it will start selling LG's latest flagship on June 5th, and you can pre-order one right away in leather black or plastic gray. If you buy one between now and June 21st, you get an extra battery, charging cradle, and 32GB microSD card in the mail for free. Read More
Android 5.1.1 is working its way through Google's lengthy list of Nexus devices. After coming to Wi-Fi tablets first, this week we saw it start to hit cellular devices like the Nexus 5, N4, and N9 LTE. As you may have noticed, Google's latest smartphone didn't make the list. With any luck, the Nexus 6 will get an over-the-air update sometime this weekend.

"F" is kind of an awkward name for a line of products. In the rankings of glamorous Latin letters which I just made up in my head, it sits somewhere between Q (just an O that's trying too hard) and P (even more lopsided, and it doesn't get the stability of the bipedal R). But whatever the reason, LG decided it was a really apt way to distinguish some one-off American carrier tablets from its regular G series. Read More
We've seen the Wi-Fi model, the T-Mobile model, and the AT&T model updated with Android 5.0, now it's time for the Verizon version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 to get its turn. The update info for the SM-T807V has appeared on Samsung's support site, which means that the update should (hopefully) start going out to customers before the end of the day. Read More
Motorola's DROID line, exclusive to Verizon in the United States, tends to get a few color variants every year. The high-end DROID Turbo, the only entry for the 2014-2015 cycle, already has several: it launched in black, red, and "ballistic nylon," and a blue version has been on sale for some time. By the end of the month shoppers will have three new options.
The new colors are variants of the flat black model, with the metallic parts on the speaker grille, volume rocker and power button, and camera lens ring colored in new trim. Read More
