Although Google’s Nexus 9 has a great tap-to-wake function, the Nexus 6 doesn’t; at least not yet. Google could enable it in the future but if you can’t wait — and don’t mind rooting your phone — you can get it now.
Nokia surprised with a new Intel Atom powered tablet running Android 5.0 this week while Google updated its Lollipop flagship software and Apple debuted the first beta SDK for WatchKit and Apple Watch apps.
Now that the Nexus 6 is available and in some people’s hands, Google has made the software factory image available for restoration. It’s not the same build as what shipped on early phones though. Whats inside?
Our phones hold all sorts of personal information so handing them over to a friend, your kids or someone else to borrow is always a bit of a risky proposition. The new Screen Pinning feature in Android 5.0 is meant to reduce that risk.

Pair a reported Nexus 9 benchmark test with an Nvidia press release and what do you get? The strong possibility that a Nexus tablet, not a Nexus phone, will be the first 64-bit Android device from Google.
Detailed benchmarks of a Motorola handset code-named “Shamu” are making the rounds and there’s evidence this phone could be the Nexus 6. But the chip choice of this handset doesn’t make sense; it will likely be different if this is a Google Nexus with Android L.
