The Nexus 9 is not the most beloved Nexus device ever made.

With these issues it's possible that Google is sitting on a fat stack of these tablets that it hasn't been able to unload.

Dell Still Hasn't Updated The Venue 8 7840 To Lollipop, But It Might Happen Soon... Maybe (If You're Lucky)

The Dell Venue 8 7840 was released in early 2015, and it was a pretty good tablet. It's certainly the best Android slate Dell has ever made. It was slightly annoying to have the device launch with KitKat back then, but it still doesn't have Lollipop all these months later. That hasn't stopped Dell from updating its product page to claim the Venue 8 does in fact run Lollipop. Here's everything we've learned from Dell about this mess.

AOSP Changelog Posted For The Nexus 9 Update From 5.0.1_r1 (LRX22C) To 5.0.2_r3 (LRX22L)

I'm sure everybody can agree, it makes almost no sense that the Nexus 9 is only now receiving a tiny maintenance update to 5.0.2 a couple of months after 5.1 came out. Nevertheless, that's how events are playing out, so we should at least know what's so special about this update. We've generated a changelog from AOSP, and honestly, there's not much to see.

Be aware, the Nexus 9 update goes from 5.0.1_r1 to 5.0.2_r3.

Google has updated the Nexus developer page with links to factory images for the latest Nexus 9 Lollipop build. Don't get too excited, though. This is the 5.0.2 build that started going out as an OTA earlier today. Google, you monster.

Sony's Adorable Smart Bluetooth Speaker BSP60 Is Now Up For Pre-Order In Europe

Sony's upcoming Smart Bluetooth Speaker BSP60 (announced at this year's Mobile World Congress) is a tad on the cute side. It sits on your desk like an unassuming black ball, but that changes as soon as the music starts. Then its circular "ears" pop out and start glowing. Wheels on the bottom let the thing move in place like it can't fight the music. It's almost enough to make a grown man squee.
