Don't panic! Despite the original Lollipop announcement stating the update would "be available on Nexus 5, 7, 10 and Google Play edition devices in the coming weeks," it looks like Nexus 4 owners won't be left out in the cold after all.

Googler Sascha Prüter clarifies in a Google+ post that the Nexus 4's conspicuous absense is "just a mistake." Indeed, the error is already fixed. There's no specific word on timing, but if history is anything to go by, the N4 will fall right in line with the rest of the Nexus updates soon enough.

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.

It's been a long wait for the Nexus 9. Of course, that's partially our fault for leaking the device's existence back in June. Since that time, we've seen rumored accessories, accidental confirmation, a trip to the FCC, and even a quick photo of the back of the device, but today it's finally really official.

The device is generally as we expected. It's an HTC-made Nexus tablet with a 4:3 aspect ratio and a 9" display (give or take).

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.

Some Americans waited literally years for the weird and wonderful PadFone series to show up on a local carrier... and were finally unsurprised to see AT&T be the only one to bite. (Seriously, between all that Amazon and HTC hardware, AT&T seems like the only American carrier willing to take a little risk.) Now AT&T and ASUS are teaming up again for the slightly smaller version of the phone-tablet docking concept, the PadFone X Mini.

When the Galaxy Note 3 was released one year ago, it marked a substantial step forward not just because it was new, but was arguably the big generational "tock" in Samsung's handset lifecycle. It had a brand-new bright, vivid (even accurate, in the right mode) 1080p Super AMOLED display, more modern design language that later influenced the Galaxy S5, excellent LTE support, a Snapdragon 800 (remember, the S4 had the lowly 600), an up-to-date 13MP camera, and launched with Android 4.3, which had been announced just around two months prior (even if KitKat did launch four weeks later on the Nexus 5).

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.

Google Glass is inviting users to "stay connected to your favorite phone apps with notification sync on Glass." The new feature, as you might have guessed by now, grants Google's MyGlass app notification access, relaying all your Android notifications up to your eyeball for quick and easy viewing/interaction. Previously, only apps compatible with Glass (like Gmail and Hangouts) could send up notifications.

The Glass team says the new feature (which the team admits you "may have already seen" on Android Wear) will come in an update to the MyGlass app that will be available tomorrow (an already jam-packed day from the looks of it), and posted a quick tutorial video to show what the setup process is like.
