After questioning the usefulness of smartwatches on Android Journal for weeks now, I actually took the plunge and purchased one.
Which one you ask? The Asus Zenwatch. Why this one vs the Motorola or LG round? Price was certainly a consideration as it could be as much as $100 cheaper. And even though it is a square watch, it is actually attractive with the nicest band (in this guy's opinion) of the bunch. This won't be an indepth review. Only my opinions on what it's been like to use this device for a week.If you need more, believe me, there are a multitude of long reviews out there.
I've tried too many Twitter apps for the Android Platform. Tweetcaster, UberSocial, Seesmic, Carbon, and believe me, I could go on. Fenix would get my nod for the nicest to look at. But the one I keep coming back to is Plume. It just seems to get the job done, and has all the features one needs to make it happen.
The folks at Google embedded an easter egg in the Lollipop build. Go to Settings/about phone/Android Version. Press it 3-4 times in succession and it will launch a Lollipop. Short pressing the Lollipop changes it's color. Long pressing brings you to that little green bot that you try to navigate through all those sticky suckers. Good luck!
Google announced new Nexus devices yesterday! And it appears as though the Nexus brand is back where it started. A premium device with a pure Google experience. At least within the phone line, anyway! I'm down with the pure Google stuff! But I'm not sure that I'm down enough to pay $650 +. In this range, Samsung Galaxy Note 4's out of contract could be considered! And this opens a door even wider for companies such as OnePlus to fill that $300-400 price gap.
I do expect however to see this one available on all US carriers. YES! Even Verizon! Remember those "Android-Silver" rumors? It looks like it happened, except they didn't call it that! Preminum phones at premimum prices running pure Android!
Specs for the Nexus 6 after the break!
By day I try to keep a Chemical Company safe. But on my time, I seem to have an obsession with Technology. I've been following mobile advancements in Technology since the mid-90s. I've used Palm OS, Windows Mobile, iOS and Android devices. With this experience comes a lot of opinion. I offer those opinions here.
