Software updates tend to take time, at least if you look at the historical average. A few OEMs have been pushing the envelope recently, though. For example, NVIDIA is saying that Android 5.0 will be on the Shield tablet this very month.

Amazon Prime Subscribers Now Have Unlimited Photo Storage Via The Cloud Drive App

If you've taken enough photos to fill up the storage allotment on both Dropbox and Google Drive, and you happen to be an Amazon Prime subscriber, you might want to check out the somewhat nondescript Cloud Drive app. Starting today, Amazon Prime users get unlimited photo storage via the company's branded cloud storage solution. The default free level of generic storage, for Prime members and everyone else, is still the standard 5GB.

Sony Xperia Z2 And Z2 Tablet Update Adds PS4 Remote Play, Hi-Res Audio, Camera Apps, And More

Sony is very serious about giving PlayStation 4 owners the ability to play their console without actually playing with their consoles, so the company is expanding its remote play functionality to more devices. The required app hit the Play Store just last week, but it only worked for the Z3 line of devices. Now that's gradually changing.

Following the latest over-the-air update, the Xperia Z2 and Z2 Tablet will be able to share in the experience.

Google Updates Design Guidelines With Clarity On Nav Drawers, Launcher Icons, And More

In a rather exciting post to its Google Design Google+ page today, Google announced a big set of improvements to the material design guidelines. The design spec, which - since this summer - has been a "preview," has been updated with links to relevant Android developer documentation, a new section called "What is Material?" a "What's new" section (to stay up to date on any changes), and a couple of other exciting changes.

Amazon Fire TV Update Brings Tablet Games To The Set-Top Box, Adds Guest Mirroring, And More

Fire TV is getting an update that bumps the software powering the set-top box up to version 51.1.4.0_user_514006420. This awkward string of letters and numbers will provide owners and guests alike with more ways to get enjoyment out of Amazon's little black box.

This update gives the Fire TV the ability to run tablet-style games using an Amazon Fire Bluetooth controller. The modified game controls significantly expand the amount of content available to the platform.

HTC RE Android App Hits Google Play So You Can Manage Content And Actually See What Your Camera Is Recording

The HTC RE is the kind of camera that doesn't come with a viewfinder. Similar to GoPro's action-oriented video recorders, the RE is something that you wear while doing something active or hold pointed vaguely towards something of interest.

The RE doesn't require a paired device to work, but if you really need to see what the device is picking up, you can turn to the companion app. HTC has dropped it into the Play Store for users to install on their smartphones regardless of make or model.

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). It's Google's first big tablet since the Nexus 10, back in the landscape orientation days. It's built in cooperation with HTC, a company whose few tablets to date have been utter flops. It looks like a giant Nexus 5. No really, it looks like a giant Nexus 5 so much it's a little weird.

Nexus Player Review: Google Just Brought A Stick To A Gunfight [Updated]

Android TV, and by association Nexus Player, are the evolution of Chromecast. It essentially eliminates the need to use a middleman device like a phone or tablet if the user chooses, and allows them to interface directly with the device and TV in many cases. While it still retains all the functionality of Chromecast, a dedicated box allows for a much more robust and feature-rich system, as well as more room for future enhancements.

The HTC Desire EYE is a quirky camera that appears to be worth a look, especially when it's looking back at you.

HTC has decided that this handset will be able to capture as many pixels from the front as it can from the back.

This handset is an AT&T exclusive, and now we have a launch date: November 7th.

'Moto Maxx,' Possibly A DROID Turbo Variant For Non-US Markets, Spotted On Google+

Verizon's ongoing DROID program means that most of the phones sold under the label will never appear on other US carriers. When the DROID Turbo was announced last week as one of the most high-end phones to come this year, more than a few of our commenters said that they'd prefer it to the Nexus 6 (also made by Motorola) due to its smaller size, if only a non-locked GSM version was available.
