Google has created a whole new hardware division that will bring Chromecast and Nexus devices under the stewardship of one man while taking Glass away from Tony Fadell.

Former Motorola president Rick Osterloh has returned to Google, two months after leaving the company that was sold to Lenovo around the same time. Osterloh will head up a new hardware team and report directly to CEO Sundar Pichai.

Now ultimately responsible for the Chromecast, Google Glass and the Nexus lineup, Osterloh managed to drag himself through the ranks at Motorola while it was under Google’s wing, moving from head of product management to president during that time. Osterloh eventually left Motorola following its purchase by Lenovo as part of a wider reorganization of the company’s management team.

According to a leaked CPU-Z report, HTC’s upcoming Nexus tablet, codenamed Volantis, is set to be the first device on the market to feature Nvidia’s 64-bit Tegra K1 processor clocked at 2.5GHz. This revelation comes just days after renowned leaker, @Evleaks, took to Twitter to publicize his suspected specifications for the slate, which incidentally match up perfectly to the news we’re seeing today.


Every Thursday we write about a particular accessory we’ve been using over the course the past week and today we’re focusing our attention on Google’s second-generation universal Wireless Charger, which hit the stores alongside the search engine giant’s revamped edition of the Nexus 7 back in 2013.


Google have officially published two brand new adverts for its flagship Nexus 7, just three months after the original ad made its debut on Goggle’s official Nexus YouTube channel. Both of these promo videos highlight how the 7-inch slate can be used in our modern-day world.

For Nexus users who love taking Photo Spheres, Google just made submitting and uploading them on Google Maps a little bit easier.

Prior to this revamp, users could only upload the 360-degree images from their Android devices, but now they will have the option to submit and view Photo Spheres from the web as well.
