T-Mobile Announces Launch Dates For Its Nexus 5 And Nexus 7, Is Now Accepting Pre-Orders For The Latter

Activating a Nexus 5 on T-Mobile is far from a difficult process, but if you missed out on the first wave of Nexus 5s on Google Play, T-Mobile will soon be ready to sell one to you themselves. The company is launching the latest Nexus handset on November 14th online, and they will introduce it in-stores a week later.

Rather than paying $349 for the phone on Google Play, T-Mobile customers can buy it for $41.99 down, followed by 24 monthly payments of $17.

ASUS is trying to bring that same experience (or at least part of it) to a broader range of devices with the TransKeyboard, revealed on the company's YouTube channel late last night.

The TransKeyboard is pretty similar to other mobile keyboards - it's relatively compact and interoperable with Android smartphones/tablets and PCs.

Rockstar won the patents in an auction in 2011 that topped out at $4.5 billion - Google lost the same auction with a $4.4 billion bid.

Update: CyanogenMod is also ready to make its debut appearance on the AT&T version of the LG G2 (d800), and Verizon nightlies have returned.

New Nexus 7 2013 Commercials Cater To Dog Lovers And Night Owls
