[OTA Download] Nexus 6Ps On Telstra Are Getting An OTA To Fix LTE Connectivity Issues

If you're in Australia, a Telstra customer, and own a Nexus 6P, today is a good day for you. As we reported earlier, the Nexus 6P has been suffering from widespread issues connecting to Telstra's LTE network. It would appear that the OTA to fix this is now rolling out.

The OTA weighs in at 71 MB and will update you to build MMB29N. There's no indication whether or not there are additional bugfixes included in this build, but we'll probably find out soon enough once the changes get pushed to AOSP. If you're the impatient type, you can download the ZIP file below and flash it manually in stock recovery.

Samsung Drops Galaxy View Price By $100 After Just 2 Weeks (Now $499.99 Everywhere)

The Galaxy View is a device only Samsung would make. Not because it's a bad idea necessarily, but because it's a really niche product that no other OEMs really have a hope of pulling off. It turns out that maybe even Samsung is going to have trouble selling a huge 18.4-inch tablet with a built-in handle. After 2 weeks on virtual shelves, The Galaxy View is getting a $100 price drop.

Google Adds 30 Historical And Touristic Jordanian Sites To Street View, Petra And Jerash Included

I have fond memories of Jordan. The hot temperatures and the desert environment didn't stop me from enjoying my 4-day tour of the country where I walked around the city of Petra and took a donkey ride back to the entrance because my feet hurt too much, went on a 4X4 drive around Wadi Rum and got sand everywhere in my clothes and shoes, floated in the Dead Sea and panicked when I figured that I couldn't swim back to shore but had to awkwardly paddle my body, got lost between the hookah café on the Aqaba beach, watched a Roman gladiator fight reenactment in Jerash, and visited what is believed to be the Baptismal Site of Jesus Christ.

Good grief, T-Mobile has been awfully late in providing the Android 6.0 update to Nexus 6 users on its network. That kind of behavior is positively... carrier-like. But as of Friday the rollout for Marshmallow should have finally begun, at least if you're anywhere near a Wi-Fi network - according to T-Mobile's support document, a full OTA including the cellular network will begin later. As always, it might be several days until you see the update alert on your specific device.

Many Nexus 6P Owners Are Reporting Microphone Problems, May Be Related To Noise Cancellation; Google Is Investigating

Are the people you call with your shiny new Nexus 6P saying that they can't hear you? Then you might want to check out several threads on the Google Product Forum and XDA-Developers. A common problem among early adopters seems to be weak and spotty voice quality - that's the voice of the Nexus 6P owner, not the other call party. At the time of writing, several dozen owners across the two sites are reporting very similar problems, both in standard call mode and when using the speakerphone. Google representatives have responded on the official forum, and say that they're looking into it.
