Google confirms it will pay $1.1 billion to acquire HTC’s Pixel team and license technology

Thursday, September 21st, 2017

The rumor mill was working overtime over the last few weeks as everyone speculated what a Google acquisition of HTC would look like. Would it be a Motorola situation? Maybe more like Microsoft acquiring Nokia? In the end, it's nothing so extreme as an acquisition. Google and HTC have come to an agreement wherein Google essentially carves out the Pixel business from HTC, leaving the rest to continue making smartphones.

Tuesday, September 19th, 2017

Google hasn't been selling the Chromebook Pixel for a while now, but it looks like there's a new one on the horizon called the Pixelbook. This flagship Chromebook will sport some very nice hardware, but it won't be cheap; pricing will top out at a whopping $1749. Yes, $1749 for a Chromebook, and you'll have to pony up another $99 for the "Pixelbook Pen."

The Pixelbook is the "new Chromebook Pixel" we wrote about around a month ago.

Pixel 2 will come in three colors including “Kinda Blue,” will cost $649 for 64GB model and $749 for 128GB

Tuesday, September 19th, 2017

We just got a look at images and pricing for the Pixel 2 XL, but now it's the smaller Pixel 2's turn. This HTC-made device will actually be fairly reasonably-priced at $649 for the 64GB storage size and $749 for 128GB, and it'll come in three uniquely-named colors.

Visually, the Pixel 2 just looks like a less massive version of the XL, which we all expected. However, while the XL has a black glass window regardless of color, the Pixel 2's is tailored to the device's color.

Tuesday, September 19th, 2017

The Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL have been two of the most highly-anticipated phones of 2017, and now, we're finally getting a good look at one of them. The Pixel 2 XL (yes, that's the official name) has just leaked with images of its two color variants and pricing information for the 64GB and 128GB storage sizes in the United States.

Appearance-wise, the Pixel 2 XL looks pretty sharp. It'll come in two colors: "Just Black" and "Black & White." As we'd suspected, the camera lens is positioned inside the glass window, while the fingerprint sensor sits within the metal portion.

Opinion: The new Pixels will have the same problem as the current ones – they’re just Android phones

Monday, September 18th, 2017

A little-acknowledged but persistent problem has plagued every Google handset since the original Nexus One: Their most defining characteristics - Google's services and Android itself - are not unique to them.

With each new Google phone, consumers do often get their first chance to buy (well, assuming they're in stock - a big assumption) a device that ships with the latest version of Android. Or, they can wait four or five months and buy one that ships with that same version of Android from another, better-known vendor, typically with all of the major improvements and new features intact.

[Deal Alert] Get a brand new 128GB Pixel ($139 off) or Pixel XL ($219 off) at Newegg

Friday, September 15th, 2017

We're less than a month away from the announcement of Google's newest smartphone hardware, so you might think it's a bad time to pick up a first generation Pixel. But with the price of the new models likely to be even higher and with the current phones still being among the best Android devices out there, those of you who aren't obsessed with having the latest and greatest could do a lot worse than pick up a cut price Pixel.

October 4th is new Pixel day, confirmed by Google with video and billboard

Thursday, September 14th, 2017

Rumors up to now have led us to believe the event to announce this year's Pixels phones would be on October 5th. It made sense, being just a day after last year's keynote on October 4th. We can now tell you that Google is in fact holding the event on the exact same date as last year, October 4th. First of all, a billboard appeared in Boston with "Oct. 4" on it.

Wednesday, September 13th, 2017

It's September, and however you might feel about that, one thing is certain: Google's going to release its monthly security updates. While the OTAs were pushed yesterday, downloads for the factory images and OTAs wasn't available until just now. So if you've been chomping at the bit looking for a fix for BlueBorne and haven't seen the update on your device, you can go on ahead and manually pull it down.

Amid much confusion, Pixels and Nexuses are finally starting to receive September security OTAs

Tuesday, September 12th, 2017

A few days ago, we reported on Android's September security bulletin, in which Google seemed to suggest the latest security patches for most Pixel and Nexus devices came bundled with the late-August upgrade to Android 8.0 Oreo. That turns out not to be the case, however, as our devices have all been stuck on the August 5th security patch level. There's still a fair amount of confusion swirling, but some users seem to be receiving September OTAs with up-to-date security patches at last.
