Google’s latest flagship devices, the Pixel and the Pixel XL, were released preinstalled with the tech giant’s own Android 7.1 Nougat, a pretty standard update but still one that came with new features.
Users of Android powered mobile devices know exercises of patience all too well, especially when it comes to waiting for the latest version of Google’s mobile operating system to make its way to their smartphones and tablet devices, particularly those not made by Google. Still, some phone makers are quicker than others (like LG), while for the rest, it often takes months.
Back in February early this year during the annual Mobile World Congress, Google had mentioned that it would be integrating Rich Communications Service (RCS) to mobile devices powered by its Android mobile operating system. Well, the tech giant is making good on that promise now, deploying RCS messaging to Android users with the help of major US wireless carrier Sprint.
Via its official blog, Google has revealed the release date of its Daydream View virtual reality headset, and it will be this coming November 10th. The Daydream View VR headset will debut not only online in the Google Store, but also by way of various retail outlets in major mobile markets such as the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Germany, and Australia.
T-Mobile is offering customers a discount in the amount of $325 if they decide to buy an unlocked version of Google’s Pixel and then activate the handset on the wireless carrier’s new T-Mobile One unlimited data plan.
Samsung recently offered to give a $100 credit to owners of its Galaxy Note 7 phablet if they decide to go for a Samsung handset as their replacement unit. Various mobile operators, however, appear to be more flexible in letting customers choose whatever make or model they want in exchange for their Galaxy Note 7 devices.
Right after Google announced its new Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones, it was also revealed that Verizon Wireless will be the exclusive wireless carrier in the United States to directly sell the devices.
