Google announces the Nexus 6, Nexus 9, and Android 5.0, Lollipop


From ArsTechnica:
First up is the Motorola-build Nexus 6. With its latest Nexus phone, Google is tackling phablets. Even for a phablet, though, the Nexus 6 is huge: it has a 5.96-inch, 2560×1440 display (493 PPI). (Compare that to the pocket-busting Note 4, which is "only" 5.7 inches.) The base Nexus 6 has a 2.7GHz Snapdragon 805 quad-core SoC, 32GB or 64GB of internal storage, 13MP and 2MP cameras, and a 3200 mAh battery. The Motorola-built device has a design heavily based on the 2014 Moto X.

The phone can be pre-oredered in "late October" and will be in stores "in November." Unlike previous Nexus phones, Google says the Nexus 6 will be widely available from various retail outlets and carriers, including Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, US Cellular, Best Buy, and the Google Play store.
