RUMOR: Google said to Work on a Nexus TV Set-top Box
Posted by Arne Hess - at 17:26 CET under 04 - Android News

As successful as Google is in many areas, the Internet giant has still not archived to seriously get its foot into the living room. Sure, we have seen Google TV and the Google Chromecast, but while the first one was everything but successful, the second one gained some attractiveness by tech savvies. Nevertheless, mass market looks different and Google isn't interested in niche products anymore - that's clear - but it looks for a dominance in the areas it offers its products. Too bad that just Microsoft and Sony dominate the living rooms with its Xboxes and PlayStations. However, according to a recent report by "The Information", Google is said to have another try - this time with another Android-based set-top box expected to be called "Nexus TV".

OFFER: No Contract, No Problem - HTC America to directly offer the HTC One Financed by way of Credit
Posted by Arne Hess - at 14:57 CET under 04 - Android News

While unsubsidized mobile phones and smartphones are pretty common in other regions of the world, it still looks like U.S. Americans are pretty much sold to its carriers, instead of going carrier-free. As a matter of fact, and I know it from my own experiences, it's pretty hard in the U.S. to get a SIM card sans device. Nevertheless, as said it's common in other parts of the world to go contract free. For instance have we "O2 My Handy" (handy is the "German term for mobile phone) here in Germany which works independent from a mobile phone contract and which allows you to purchase a mobile phone which is financed by way of credit. This means you pay upfront a small amount and the rest 24 months equally.

Posted by Arne Hess - at 10:01 CET under 04 - Android News

The land of poets and thinkers, the land of Goethe and Schiller is also the land of one of the toughest digital rights and copyrights and therefore it took Google a little bit longer to bring its Google Play Music All Access service to Germany. But today, a year after it originally launched and months, after it hits the European neighbors, Google Play Music has also reached Germany as Google Play All-Inclusive. If you know Spotify, Deezer or Rdio, you know what it is about - it's a monthly music rental service. It allows to play millions of songs, instantly, on any Android and iOS device as well as on the web. On top of this, it brings custom radio which can be created from any song, album, artist or genre - with no skip limits.
