Google releases Nexus 6, nexus 9 and new OS

NexusfamilyTechnology Giant , Google , on wednesday unveiled its latest Nexus devices , Nexus 6 And Nexus 9 , along side Nexus Player , a new music streaming player. Nexus 6 is a 6-inch display smartphone manufactured by Motorolla Mobility while Nexus 9 is an 8.9-inch tablet manufactured by taiwanese OEM , HTC. This nexus devices are the first to run Android’s Latest Os , Android Lollipop. The Nexus 6, a large-screened device that serves as a phone and a phablet , is Google’s first entry in the “Phablet Market”. Nexus 6 will lock horns with Apple’s iPhone 6 Phablet , which was unveiled last month at an event in curpertino.

The new version of Android illustrates Google’s desire to unify Android in its many iterations. When the company introduced it at its I/O developer conference in June, Google showed off “material design,” a push by Google to control the visual aesthetics of Android, and make the user interface feel consistent across all mobile products, as well as on the Web.

“Lollipop is made for a world where moving throughout the day means interacting with a bunch of different screens– from phones and tablets to TVs,” Sundar Pichai, senior vice president of Android, Chrome and apps for Google, said in a blog post Wednesday.

The new Android software also gives developers more control over how notifications are displayed on devices, and aims to increase battery efficiency through a project called Volta. Further more, Lollipop includes a battery saver feature that extends the life of a device by 90 minutes. Lollipop also includes multiple user accounts, a guest user mode and the ability to use different security measures such as a PIN, password, pattern or by linking to a secure device like a watch.

The Nexus 6 Phablet will be available for pre-order In US On October 29 2014 and will be available for sale in November , while Nexus 9 And Nexus Player will be available for preorder on October 17 and will hit the shelves in November 3rd 2014.

    Google seem to be telling the world that they are moving the mobile technology unto a new level with the entrance of this Android L (lollipop) or OS 5.0. Time for the Windows Phones and iphones to take a back seat.

    However, one feature that could have been introduced earlier is the Guest Mode. It is a feature seen in low cost android 4.2 phone like Gionee P4. If Gionee could do it in the P4, then it is not a particularly exciting feature. I believe Windows Phone has always have such feature. They call it Kid’s Corner
