The Nexus 6 is back in stock at the Google Play Store… but not for long. Meanwhile, we are getting new details Google Glass and Razer’s new Nabu Smartband.
The Nexus 6 went out of stock once again, proving that there’s much more to the Nexus brand than just affordability. Either that or Google is not making too many of these.
Opinion: We are hoping Google will have more devices before the holidays. It would be a shame if it can’t make it under your trees.
The Wall Street Journal is back at it with new Google Glass rumors, this time sourcing “people familiar with the matter”. According to their insiders, Google is set to launch a new Google Glass version come 2015.
That is not surprising, though. What we really care about is what the new eyewear will have inside – an Intel chip. It’s said this will allow for longer battery life, which is something Google Glass has a lot of issues with.
Opinion: Intel has been playing with the Android ecosystem for some time, but they haven’t found much success in the highly competitive market. A new era is emerging, though. My favorite Android tablet happens to have an Intel chip, and they are even entering the wearable market with the MICA smart watch.
Wearables are the future. Those who don’t jump in will stay out of the party, and even companies like Razer (famous for gaming products) are bringing their goodies to the table. The company announced the Razer Nabu Smartband, a device that is now ready to launch.
Razer has announced the Nabu Smartband will be going for $99.99, and it is launching on December 2nd (Tuesday). Some of you will be able to get it for $79.99, though. Whose who signed up for Razer’s beta program before September will get access to the promotional price. Expect an email soon!
Opinion: This device is more based on health and fitness, but it’s a neat little tracker for the active user. And at $100 it’s not a horrible deal. I love that it has a 7-day battery life.
