Google expected to deliver 2-year update guarantee for Nexus devices

Google Nexus 6-3

Google will announce a new two-year update guarantee for Nexus devices alongside its next-generation Android M software, a new report claims. The policy is expected to apply to both new hardware, and existing devices already on sale.

“Nexus devices will get major system updates for two years and security patches for three years from OS release date,” reports Android Police. “Security patches will alternatively be guaranteed for at least 18 months from the date of purchase in the Google Store/Play Store (whichever is longer).”

This update policy will surely make Nexus smartphones and tablets even more popular among hardcore Android fans, who already appreciate Google’s hardware for its pure Android software that’s free from third-party tweaks and alterations.

But while the policy is expected to apply to existing Nexus devices, it doesn’t mean your Nexus 5 or Nexus 7 will get updates for another two years. The two-year timeline is based on release date — not when the policy is introduced — so some devices will reach update expiration this year.

Devices that have already passed the two-year milestone — like the Nexus 4, the 2012 Nexus 7, and the Nexus 10 — won’t get Android M at all, though they will continue to receive security patches for a while, according to the new guidelines.

None of this is official yet, so it should be regarded as speculation until Google confirms it. Android Police reports that the policy could be announced with Android M at Google I/O later this week, or when Android M makes its public debut this fall.

Algunos de mis amigos están ahora me llaman un apologista BlackBerry

Algunos de mis amigos están ahora me llaman un apologista BlackBerry, e incluso un fanboy BlackBerry, sólo porque resulta que tengo probado, y lo disfrutamos, el Z30-libre del teclado. Sin embargo, a pesar de mi predilección por ambos teclados y el RIM avances (er, BlackBerry) ha realizado recientemente, el Nexus One de Google 5 sigue siendo mi smartphone defecto de elección.
Pero eso cambió hace dos semanas - al menos temporalmente - cuando Jon Rettinger me retó a tratar de vivir con el dispositivo insignia de BlackBerry, el Pasaporte. Y ya que estoy por lo general para cualquier reto tecnológico que decidí darle un paso - y así que me puse el Nexus a un lado y se zambulló en la parte más profunda.

Gears of War remaster screenshots from footage leak

See full gallery on TechnoBuffalo The only thing Black Tusk and Microsoft have left to do on the Gears of War remaster is actually announce it. We’ve seen it hinted at, denied, and rated.Now we have some footage accidentally leaked onto the Xbox DVR site, likely by a developer who forgot to disable the automatic upload.This isn’t gameplay footage per se – the enemy is standing still in the clips while the player attacks them. It’s likely test footage for some of the gore physics or something like that. But it’s definitely footage taken in-game.The two images above were pulled from a NeoGAF thread on the leak comparing the screenshot of the new clips to one from the original Gears. Microsoft is likely scrambling to take the footage down, but currently the thread, linked to in the source for this story, has links to the videos.If you decide to click through and watch the clips, it’s important to note that they were filmed using the Xbox Game DVR and were filmed three months ago, before t…

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt launch trailer take 2 – Go Your Own Way

You can call it another lonely day. Haven’t we been here once before? CD Projekt RED believes that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is far too amazing for just one launch trailer, so it has decided to create yet another just to drive home the fact that you need to play this game.The new “Go Your Way” launch trailer features more in-engine graphics instead of impressive pre-rendered CG, and its focus this time around is not our big, bad hero Geralt but rather the Princess Ciri. Don’t be fooled by her puppy dog eyes and adorable freckles. This girl will kill you in a flash! The trailer tells her tale of how she wandered from home, and tells of how Geralt sets out to find her.The relationship between these two is not the only star of the trailer either. Geralt’s fantasy world is full of real life horrors that extend beyond mere monsters. Slaughter, torture, executions, dangerous seductions. The trailer bares all that you will find in this horrible yet beautiful place, giving you a taste of the s…
