Looking for a starter tablet? You know, something to give a kid or someone not so into tech that they would scoff at something not running regular Android? Then consider the Fire HD 6. Amazon is currently offering it for $30 off, bringing the price to a compelling $70.

Wondering what the Nexus 5 2015 "Bullhead" that we've been speculating about for the last three months might look like? An alleged leaked photo of the phone might be our first glimpse. Indonesian Google+ user Inno Yudha posted the photo above to a Nexus enthusiast community on Sunday afternoon (US time). He gave no indication of what it is, but based on the clear "Nexus" label on the rear, the "not for sale" markers, and the general size, many are speculating that this is a pre-retail version of LG's Nexus phone.
