The Project Tango Tablet Development Kit Is On The Play Store, But It's Not For Sale Yet

Update: It looks like the Tango tablet is available to purchase if you signed up to be on the list to buy one at Google I/O. The rest of you will, presumably, have to wait.

It looks like Google's Project Tango AR / sensor-beast tablet is headed to the Play Store soon, packing an NVIDIA Tegra K1 processor and a boatload of sensors. Not to mention 4GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage, for some reason.

Nexus 4 owners will be pleased to hear that Lollipop build LRX21T is on its way for their devices. While there isn't a specific time frame for the rollout, Sascha Prüter states in a post to Google+ that the build is "locked and loaded," indicating in the comments that LRX21T is destined for the Nexus 4 some time soon.

Just Nexus 4 for now. Our goal was to use as many letters as possible for all the different devices ;)

Google Cloud Print Gets Its Own Material Makeover [APK Download]

Google Cloud Print has recently received a material redesign of its own. You would be forgiven for thinking that the printing service wasn't its own app, given how it's tucked away with your device's other settings. But when you do go to "add a printer," you are, in fact, kicked out to a different app.

It just doesn't look like it.

What's New

Cloud Print has gone Material. Everything's bright white, the sidebar slides out on top of the action bar, and the new color palette matches the settings menu in Android 5.0.

YouTube Android App Now Sports A White Sidebar For Some Users, Without An Update

Google has given a bunch of its apps the Material Design treatment. Thus far, YouTube isn't one of them, even if you're running Android 5.0. But a few users have noticed a UI change that nudges things in that direction. They've fired up the app and slid out the sidebar, only to see that it's now white. With their avatar in the top left atop a colorful background, YouTube is starting to look ever-so-slightly more like what Lollipop users would expect.

Google Debuts Four More Ads Starring The Cartoon Androidify Figures

The advertising for the latest round of Android software and devices has been pretty catchy. Have you seen the "party" ad? Nice. Google just posted four more short 45-second spots to the official Android account on YouTube, so you can expect to see these pop up on American television over the next few weeks. All of them star the cartoony Androidify figures, presumably including at least some created by users of the official app.

Running Into The Dreaded "missing system.img" Error Flashing Android 5.0 Factory Images? Here's How To Get Around It

If you're trying to flash your Nexus 5, 7, or 10 to Android 5.0 now that the factory images are out, there's nothing more infuriating than running into an error in the process. The most common error we're seeing today as part of the flashing process is the dreaded "missing system.img" dialog, which aborts the update process on the target device.

The reason this happens is because the flash-all script that comes in the image package, which most of you are undoubtedly trying to use, is attempting to flash the .img files in the update using the 'fastboot update' method, which appears to be failing for some reason for some users.

Google+ Has Gained A Tab For Mentions, But It's Only On The Web For Now

When you're using a social network, getting tagged in messages is par for the course. Unfortunately Google hasn't always made it easy to find all the times you've been mentioned. Sure, you could look back over all of your notifications, but that list gets cluttered quickly with comments on your posts, +1's, and follows.

Thankfully, Google has added a "Mentions" tab. It's situated between the "More" and "Explore" sections on the right-hand side.

Google Provides Official Look At Search 4.0 Update With Material Design, App Searching, And More

The Google Search app is about to get the Material Design treatment. In a blog post today, Google has officially announced version 4.0 of Search, which we detailed (APK download included) nearly a month ago.

To refresh, the visual changes aren't all that drastic. Google Now already relied on cards, and swiping them away already felt pretty tangible. But now we have the extra layer of Lollipop-style flourish.
