Nexus 5 hits PlayStore with official pricing (partially)

image

The Nexus 5 has leak yet again but this time its official as it gets so far as it comes from Google’s own PlayStore. It gave us a couple shots of the final product & gave us some official info, that the new Nexus phone will definitely be called the Nexus 5 & also that pricing will start at $349. So the good rumours are so far coming true & now if the rumour of a larger battery in the 32gb (3000mAh) model comes true we could have the perfect pure Android device on our hands. The Nexus 5 has since been taken down but this has to mean we’re getting ever so close to the official announcement & release 🙂

What do you guys think about the new Nexus, will you be getting one & what else are you hoping to see when it becomes official?

Google PlayStore Gift cards have found their way to Canada

image

Google has finally started offering PlayStore gift cards in Canada, it’s about time eh ;-). Denominations of $15, $25 and $50 are available from selected retailers, including those which are listed below.

Best Buy
Shoppers Drug Mart
Target
Mac’s
Walmart
Future Shop

The cards apply credits to your Google Wallet account for purchases of games, apps, books, movies and music from the PlayStore. Possibly even devices we’re not sure as we’ve never tried.

For those of us at Team Android Canada that haven’t had credit cards at one time or another we just used Visa & Mastercard prepaid cards from these same retailers. So if PlayStore gift cards haven’t made their way to your local retailer you can always grab a prepaid Visa or Mastercard and just input the card like you would a regular postpaid version of said cards.

Samsung Galaxy S4 Google Edition

image

Yesterday at Google I/O there wasn’t much in the way of product announcements, however there was one very interesting one. A collaboration of sorts with the #1 Android device maker Samsung. The New Galaxy S4 with a twist that should interest those who love a Nexus style Android experience.
The hardware is staying exactly the same as that in the original model, but the software will be a pure vanilla Android experience. So you lose all the features the device is known for, but that might not be as bad as it may seem. Samsung has received some flak over just how much internal storage said features takes up in the 16gb device. With all those features packed in leaves the user with around 8gb of storage from the get go. The Google Edition should leave users with around 14gb of storage.
Another great advantage would be in the update department where Google stated that the device will always be updated promptly with the latest version of Android.

If the device sounds appealing to you then you’ll want to check out the Google Playstore starting on the 26th. That’s when the device will become available & will sell for $649 in the US which is where it will first be made available with other markets to follow.

So what do you guys think of this device, is it worth the money considering it sells for the same as the feature packed model?
Do you care about the features of the S4 or is it the hardware  that draws your attention?
Let us know in the comments section below & stay tuned for more from Google I/O 2013.

Doc & Dog hits the PlayStore & its addicting

image

There’s a great new one touch game in the Play Store that I had to write about, it’s Doc & Dog.
Doc & Dog is like I said a single touch game like ski safari but this ones made by a different company. In this one your using your own inventions to make your way through the levels after you & your dog crash on a deserted island.

It has really good graphics, smooth gameplay & the the way you have to collect fruit to keep going as you collect some things & avoid others is great. I haven’t found a one touch game I found addicting in awhile & best of all its free!!!!
You can pay to upgrade quicker if you like though.
Check out the video below or link straight to the download below that.
