Update: False alarm. It looks like you have more time now. Two days more, to be precise.

If you're in the market for a way to handwrite notes and convert them into a digital format that you can edit, head over to StackSocial right away and buy the discounted Equil Smartpen 2. It's currently going for $129.99, which is $20 less than Amazon's current rate and down from the regular price of $169.99. Then come back and read the remainder of this post.

It may be taking longer than many potential customers would like, but Google is still working on bringing its goods and services to interested parties around the world. Today, those in New Zealand and Taiwan will be happy to find that the Play Store now has a "Devices" section in their countries.

For now, it seems that only the Nexus 9 and the Chromecast are available in these two countries, but this is still a promising development.

Update: Plenty of readers are saying that they've received 5.0.1 with AT&T SIM cards. The decision to publish this post was made after my testing and another AP team member saying that he had yet to receive 5.0.1 on his device as well. It's possible that the rollout to devices with AT&T SIMs is just moving at a much slower pace than for ones with other SIMs, but regardless, there is still something unique going on with AT&T.

The Galaxy Alpha is a slick piece of hardware. While the bulk of the phone remains plastic, Samsung decided to surround this handset with a metal frame, giving it a more premium look and feel than the flagship that came before it, the Galaxy S5. Now AT&T is gracing the phone with a minor over-the-air update that provides unnamed "user experience enhancements." The OTA will leave the device running software version G850AUCU1ANL1.

The fifth series of Android mini collectibles from Dead Zebra is just around the corner, and the first preview is now live on Dead Zebra's site. Andrew Bell and company have some fun stuff this year, including an Android policeman. It's not technically connected with Android Police, but I'm going to pretend it is. Just add an AP logo and you're golden.

Moto360-Thumb

Time flies in the tech world. The Moto 360 isn't the latest hotness anymore, but I still love the one strapped to my wrist. In my mind, it remains the most visually stunning smartwatch you can buy. And when I say you, I'm referring to folks in Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Spain, and the United Kingdom—all places where the watch is now listed as available from the Play Store.

Google Play Edition phones and tablets started dropping like flies last year, and now we've reached the eventual conclusion. The HTC One M8 GPE is no longer for sale in the Play Store, and it was the last. If you want a new device with stock Android, it's going to be a Nexus.

You can buy the Turbo Charger from Motorola's website for $34.99. But just like with brick and mortar stores, it's nice to have options. So if I may have everyone's attention, please direct your attention to the Play Store, where the charger is now listed as coming soon.

The Motorola Turbo Charger can plug into any device that draws its juice from a USB port, but if you pair it with something like the Nexus 6, it will recharge the thing in a fraction of the time a weaker adapter would take.

Update: Just as mysteriously as it entered the Play Store, Work Chrome has left - its listing appears to have been removed.

The idea behind Google's Android Work effort is to allow users of enterprise devices (whether BYOD or company-provided) to use the apps they're familiar with in one unified experience that keeps work and personal data separate. Work data will stay secure, with Android Work providing restrictions and controls for what can be done with the data, while personal data is readily accessible without needing to install any special third-party apps or launchers.

Users of the enhanced WhatsApp client, known fittingly as WhatsApp+ were quite rightly annoyed yesterday when the Facebook-owned company started temp-banning them from the service for using the third-party app. At the time it was unclear if WhatsApp+ would be able to find a way around the block or if it was curtains. Now we know—it's over.
