Nexus 9 vs. iPad Air 2: A [Mostly] Subjective Comparison

DISCLAIMER: I bought an iPad Air 2, and I bought said iPad Air 2 after owning the first iPad Air since launch day last year. I sold my iPad Air so I could do this. I really like my iPad Air 2, it's pretty great. I also really like Android. The following article contains my opinions, anecdotal evidence, subjective analysis thereof, and did I mention opinions? There are opinions. Also, this article is very long, so many sections just have side-by-sides of random Android vs iOS app comparisons presented without comment.

T-Mobile Pushes Nexus 6 Launch One Week To November 19th In Order To Provide 'The Best Experience Possible'

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.

[Deal Alert] Get A Refurbished Nexus 4 From Expansys For $129.99 (8GB) Or $149.99 (16GB) With A Free Bumper Case

The venerable Nexus 4 was a great phone when it was released in 2012, and it's still a pretty good one now two years later. If only you could still buy it... actually, you can. Expansys has some refurbished Nexus 4s they're selling at a steep discount, and they come with a free bumper case.

Google Announces All Sorts Of Chromecast Stuff, Including New Games, Starz And Showtime Support

If you're a Chromecast owner - and let's be honest here, you probably are - then you'll be pleased to know Google is moving to make this little streaming stick even more versatile. With everyone getting together for the upcoming holidays, it's not only getting a couple of new movie channels, but also a handful of additional games:

  • Wheel of Fortune
  • Monopoly Dash
  • Scrabble Blitz
  • Connect Four
  • Simon Swipe
  • Just Dance Now
  • Big Web Quiz
  • Emoji Party

Most of these titles make perfect sense for something like Chromecast - they're simple enough to run on its limited hardware and interface, and still fun enough to be entertaining.

AT&T might be getting pre-orders lined up tomorrow, but Sprint is going to actually sell the device on Friday. You'll be able to grab it in Sprint stores, though it's unclear if all locations will have stock. We already know T-Mobile will be severely lacking in Nexus 6 stock.

The Nexus 6 Will Be Available For Pre-Order From AT&T On November 12th

We've been waiting for what seems like an eternity for solid information about Nexus 6 carrier availability, and AT&T just announced that it will offer pre-orders beginning tomorrow, November 12th.

The pricing breakdown is pretty much what we expected to see:

  • $0 down with AT&T Next: $22.77 per month with AT&T Next 24, $28.46 per month with AT&T Next 18 or $34.15 per month with AT&T Next 12.
  • $249.99 with a two-year agreement
  • $682.99 with no annual commitment

...though I can't possibly fathom why someone would walk into AT&T and pay $682.99 for the device off-contract when it is (kind of) available in the Play Store for $650.

Winter Is Coming: Expect Low Nexus 6 Inventory At T-Mobile Retail Stores On November 12th

Google's pre-order sales of the Nexus 6 on the US Play Store have been, to put it delicately, crap. By my estimate all four storage and color variants of the phone have been available for ordering for a grand total of about twenty minutes over the last two weeks, and Motorola hasn't fared much better selling them on its own site. If you're waiting for the retail release of the Nexus 6...
