Wondering what the Nexus 6's box looks like? Wonder a little less - a T-Mobile employee just posted an unboxing of his test unit phone on Vine (given that he's a social media evangelist, I'm guessing he got the OK).

It's a phone, and it's inside a box.

Many T-Mobile users rely on Wi-Fi calling to use their mobile number without needing access to the mobile network, but they aren't Nexus 5 owners. That handset, due to its lack of carrier modifications, didn't support T-Mobile's nifty feature. With the Nexus 6, things will be different. The carrier has already announced that it is bringing Wi-Fi calling to the handset.

T-Mobile says it will deliver Wi-Fi calling via an over-the-air update at some point in early 2015, thanks, it says, to enhancements in Android 5.0.

There have been many reasons to sweat over whether the Nexus 6 will come with wireless charging support. The new Moto X that it's derived from doesn't support the feature, and there's zero mention of it on Google's Nexus 6 page. Well, you can rest easy now. This year's Nexus phone will still have support for wireless charging. It's listed on the device's full spec sheet.

The support is built-in, so you won't have to invest in a case or some other contraption to get things to work.

As with the Nexus 5, Google is going to sell two versions of the new flagship device. There will be one Nexus 6 SKU for the Americas and another for the rest of the globe. Each will have the LTE bands that work for carriers in that region, with the usual overlapping on 3G and 2G. There are a ton of bands too.

When a new version of Android is announced, one of the first questions on everyone's mind is "when will my device be getting updated?" Fortunately, Motorola has moved towards complete transparency and providing timely updates over the past couple of years, and with the announcement of Lollipop it is giving details on what Moto owners can expect in the coming weeks.

Once Android 5.0 L is officially released, we intend to bring this latest upgrade to many of our other Motorola devices, as well.

The Nexus 6 looks to be Google's most widely-released phone ever, at least in the context of United States carriers. While the company has taken an "unlocked first" approach to carrier partnerships since the ill-fated Verizon Galaxy Nexus, it has offered at least some of the traditional phone sales on the Nexus 5. For the new Motorola Nexus 6, every major American carrier will have a phone option, though whether that means there's one phone that will work with all or there will be multiple versions, we can't say at the moment.

It's Nexus day. The Nexus 6 and 9 are real, and we have the details. Nexus Player is Google's new Android TV box. Lollipop is the new version of Android. With so much stuff to take in all at once, we figured it a good idea to collect all the videos from today and post them in one, easy-to-find place. This post is that place. Have fun.

The Nexus 6 is too big to be stopped. The news is out, and the phone is as large as you hoped or feared but expected nonetheless. This year's Nexus phone is essentially a stretched out Moto X packed with better specs - 5.96" AMOLED 1440 x 2560 display (493PPI), Snapdragon 805 processor, Adreno 420 GPU, 3GB RAM, 3220mAh battery, 13MP camera, and a 2MP front shooter. On the external side of things, the power and volume buttons have slid halfway down the side of the device so that they're still accessible.

Moto E

Someone at the unconventional indie carrier Republic Wireless is a big fan of Motorola. In addition to carrying both the high-end Moto X and the budget-oriented Moto G (both from 2013), the company is now offering the low-end Moto E in its limited lineup of customized phone hardware, as promised. Interested customers can pick one up from the company's online store for $99. White and black colors are available.

A quick spec refresh: the Moto E uses a 4.3-inch, 960x540 screen, a dual-core Snapdragon 200 processor running at 1.2GHz, 1GB of RAM and 4GB of storage, plus whatever you can fit in the MicroSD card slot.

If tonight can be compared to Christmas Eve, we've just seen a big, AT&T-shaped box sitting in the living room. As carriers are wont to do, it appears AT&T has already set up a URL for Motorola's Nexus 6, confirming that the carrier will carry the new whale-sized Nexus.

The URL won't take you to a product listing just yet, but if you travel a short way to the LG G3 Vigor listing, you'll see a tile in the sidebar showing the Nexus 6 for $49.99 on contract.
