Google has unveiled a new Nexus 6 smartphone, Nexus 9 tablet, and Nexus Player alongside the official Android Lollipop announcement.

Advances in computing are driven at the intersection of hardware and software. That's why we’ve always introduced Nexus devices alongside our platform releases. Rather than creating software in the abstract, we work with hardware partners to build Nexus devices to help push the boundaries of what's possible. Nexus devices also serve as a reference for the ecosystem as they develop on our newest release. And for Lollipop, we have a few new Nexus treats to share with you.

Nexus 9 by HTC - $399
Nexus 9, with brushed metal sides and 8.9-inch screen, is small enough to easily carry around in one hand, yet big enough to work on. And since more and more people want to have the same simple experience they have on their tablets when they have to do real work, we designed a keyboard folio that magnetically attaches to the Nexus 9, folds into two different angles and rests securely on your lap like a laptop.

● Display: 8.9" IPS LCD
● Battery: 6700 mAh
● Camera: 8MP rear camera, 1.6MP front camera

Hipsters: oh look, buying the nexus 9 that was inspired off 6 and still hasn't had much expansion inside and out. Bargbarfbarf blgyahgargh Let's get windows phones to gobble up our memory and don't have much to offer from apps or cortana. Blackberry? Pass. iPhone users: want the phone that's always had success in the beginning and nowadays expanded? Join the healthy side, even get more from the revolutionary fruit. More innovation Apple. It's very finest.

Innovative? You could've said that everything the iPhone6 has is a copy of Android. Specs, although good because it's made by Apple for iOS, still can't compete against Android mammoth specs, plus it can bend, is extremely fragile, has to be put in a case otherwise it will eat scratches, when you update it you lose all the functionality a phone is supposed to have and let's be serious, nothing can compete against Blackberry's physical keyboard. You could say iOS is much easier to use, but ever since KitKat 4.4, and the upcoming 5.0, Android's closed the gap considerably. Android security? Oh please anything can be hacked. If you're not so clever then obviously you'd catch all the viruses. And there was that iCloud issue... Plus, although expensive (I don't mind the price, I can afford it) it isn't worth it.

Copy? You forgot to mention how much sense your gimmicks would have made if it was that way. Because of Samsung always taking iPhones features it goes on android therby it continue to copy. Even lollipop has things from ios 5 & 6, specs though? How the hell does one copy that first off? Each phone works its own way like reality checks the right way in which I am. Android may have a higher share but you're still not thinking outside the box or your troll hole in general where it's your world. Did you bother with the surveys are the jd powers for the past 7 years? Android beating ios is the most hipsterish hallucinated joke yet. How much did you suck on the malware lollipop, must be androids best mind fooling flavor yet. Seems to be working for your reputation, plus iPhones bend because it's optional. MacBook Air is aluminum, super thing yet so strong. It wasn't bent because jealous Fck like you spew your cult crap just to mislead iphone myths. It's only fragile when metal comes to contact with lava. Prove me a real test. Plastic is what deserves cases because it's not close to the 2nd hardest material in the world. Besides it scratches if you have anything with the phone that has sharp edges. When it keeps updating you will know the real difference since I am using it now without a doubt or lie, no problem. Your brain is what's not updated to understand and realize what you continue to plunge your I.Q. to. Blackberry's keyboard? Nothing competes against old school crap because blackberry proves to be the most outdated defenseless shit you keep setting high hopes for therby being the biggest hipster in history. What about pressing the keys. Imagine the time it once took which also wares your thumbs out. Crack berry can't build one in and have much more space and keys to use android changes nothing without ios. It's the reason it moves forward. It will be the 2nd os to close the gap. Not easier when you have laggy shit running in the rotten cores. Anything can be hacked but it depends how easy it is to fix. Who cares about how careful you are. Anytime Apple notices a hack it is soon stop. Now you're learning who does what they can am I right? The icloud issues came and went. Hackers arrested. Two step verification. What's missing? You can't smell the coffee. Price is worth it if you give a damn. Too soulless to understand. Like I said, hipster at its finest. Lol

I'm was an iPhone user. Got the original iPhone, the 3GS (which I considered great) but ocne I got the 4S and 5S it started to become boring. And yes, iOS is incredibly easy to hack. Why is android an easy target for hackers? Because of stupid people allowing access to dubious sites and apps. Apple doesn't allow root access for security reasons (good for the retards) but I'm not gonna pay for a phone that won't even give me full control over it. And there are many features Apple ripped off android. Off the top of my head the top down notifications, third party keyboards (finally). Scared about security vulnerabilities? Get a custom high-security rom, or go get a daily build. Android, you can do whatever you want with it. Make an iOS clone, or install a completely different OS on it. iPhones are just limited to what Cydia can do. As for materials? Samsung has plastic, HTC has thicker aluminium, Sony has glass and magnesium. And Blackberry's physical keyboards are much better for typing. the key rows are wider and you don't have to squeeze your fingers in a tiny screen, although it is better on the 5.5, I prefer the 4.7 inch size, and it's specs are disappointing compared to the 5.5.
