Nexus 6 leak hints at the existence of a mysterious ‘Google Workshop’ for custom cases

This hasn’t been the best week for Google news, but amid all the chaos of the purported antitrust violations, a leaked photo may have revealed a neat program that will make Google device owners very happy. Android Police reports that a Googler shared a post on Google+ last night exhibiting a custom Google Maps case for the Nexus 6.

This might not sound like news, but the case looks strikingly similar to those featured in the MapMe section of Google Workshop, a still unreleased service that Android Police originally unveiled last year.

Unfortunately, with the list of third-party cases growing longer every week, it can be hard to pick just one.

Here’s the thing: that decision becomes significantly easier when you only have to spend $5. More →

Excited about Google becoming a wireless carrier? There’s a huge catch

Android is all about choice. Google’s open mobile platform rocketed from out of nowhere to become the world’s leading mobile operating system, and its meteoric rise was thanks in large part to the wide range of Android-powered devices that flooded the market.

Google loves attacking new industries, as we all know, and the company confirmed that one of its next big moves will be to launch a wireless carrier. Interestingly, however, a new report claims that the key element that made Android a hit may be completely abandoned by Google’s wireless carrier service at launch. More →

Here’s our first big rumor about Google’s next-gen Nexus phone

It’s way too early for next-gen Nexus smartphone rumors, but a wild report has already emerged out of China many months before Google’s expected launch date for a new Nexus phone. The successor of the Nexus 6 — which we won’t call Nexus 7 just yet, because that would simply be a strange smartphone name considering Google has used it for tablets so far — might be made by an Android device maker from China, according to a post on Weibo posted by someone with knowledge of the matter that was recently quoted by GizmoChina.
