Google Adds A New Goodie For Chromecast And Chromecast Audio Owners: Two Months Of Ad-Free Pandora One Membership (US Only)

Chromecast owners know that even though Google's tiny stream machine is one of the cheapest on the market, it occasionally gets freebies for online video and music streaming services that add some major value. The latest goodie to come to owners of the original Chromecast and the Chromecast Audio is Pandora One, the music service's premium advertising-free tier. New owners can get two months of listening free, which has an approximate value of $8.

Offers tend to come and go, and it isn't always clear who's eligible based on when they bought their Chromecast. This one isn't showing up for me, so neither my original Chromecast model nor my Cast-enabled SHIELD TV are eligible for the promotion.

HTC Says That Marshmallow Updates For The AT&T Versions Of The One M8 And One M9 Will Start On May 12th (Tomorrow)

We've mentioned it before, but Mo Versi of HTC's American division is a good dude. Any given day you can find him on Twitter, answering questions from HTC customers and giving out juicy info on the next major software releases from the company. If every Android manufacturer had someone like Mo, the world would be a better place... and maybe our comment section wouldn't seem so bitter and despondent. Anyway, his latest tidbit is that the AT&T variants of the HTC One M8 and One M9 will be updated to Marshmallow starting tomorrow.

[Update: Winner] [US Giveaway] Win A 32GB Samsung Galaxy S7 From Android Police And Ting

Samsung's Galaxy S7 is one of the most impressive Android smartphones released to date, and this is not just my opinion, but that of almost everyone I've talked to about the phone. It has a fantastic build quality and finishing, one of the best displays we've seen, a powerful processor (regardless if it's the Exynos or Snapdragon version), a capable camera, and decent-to-amazing battery life.

So how would you like to win one from us and our friends over at Ting?

You've sure heard of Ting, the MVNO that only wants to charge you for what you use instead of offering you plans with plenty of bundled options that you may never need.

The GSM-LTE Unlocked Version Of The HTC 10 Will Work On Verizon After A Simple Radio Flash

The community over at XDA-Developers is a little less voracious these days. There are a lot of reasons: an ever-expanding selection of Android phones means it's harder to make a modding nexus for each one, general improvements in hardware and software make rooting less necessary, et cetera. But those tinkerers can still get some fantastic results. Case in point: it turns out that it's totally possible to get the unlocked HTC 10, currently being sold free of contracts and carriers from the HTC web store, to operate on Verizon.

Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 2016 Announced In Germany, Aimed At Families With Children

I've lost count of how many Samsung tablets there are now, but one member of the lineup just received an update, with the Galaxy Tab A 10.1 being spec-bumped to the latest and greatest. It seems like a normal, mid-range, large-ish tablet, but that doesn't mean it's not worth looking at.

The screen is a Full HD 1920x1080 display, with 2GB RAM and a 1.6GHz octa-core processor (Samsung has declined to mention the make or model of the processor) powering it. There's a 7300mAh battery, the usual array of WiFi connections (802.11 a/b/g/n/ac) and of course Bluetooth 4.2. The camera is an 8MP affair, with F1.9 aperture, LED flash, and autofocus.

[Deal Alert] Woot Has New (Yes, New!) 32GB Nexus 5 Phones On Sale For $150, Today Only

Nexus phones tend to last a while, at least in terms of software - thank Google's spot as the gatekeeper of Android for that. I'm still using my Nexus 6, and will probably continue to do so when the 2016 models come in and it passes the two-year mark. The previous phone, LG's Nexus 5, is coming up on three years old, but it still has access to the latest version of Android with new security releases every month. It's still a great budget phone, especially for enthusiasts and developers.
