According to Android Police's traffic data, less than 1% of the people who visit our site do so from Mexico. But that 1% is having a really good day today: in addition to getting news of the Moto Maxx (a non-Verizon version of the high-powered DROID Turbo) coming to Mexico, you'll soon be able to buy a Chromecast south of the border. I don't know what took Google so long, but you should be able to find one in Best Buy, Liverpool, or Linio retailers starting tomorrow.

Nexus 9 Review: A Little Better On Paper Than In Practice

The Nexus 9. For many of us, it is the chosen Android tablet. It's setting out to change the landscape (literally, to portrait 4:3).
