    Those crazy Google engineers are up to their shenanigans again. This time, they kicked off the April Fools fun 8 days early, by trolling developers. They launched a new “Space Reviews” section in their developer console.

    The premise is that this Space Reviews section will share reviews from outer space of futuristic Nexus devices. The example in the joke is called the Nexus Space (aka Nexus 16), and is a smart-device with 12GB of RAM, a 7.21-inch display, and uses an odd 3000 x 2000 resolution with 500DPI.

    What's even more bizarre is that this Nexus Space from the future is still using Android 6.0 Marshmallow. The review was posted 13 years into the future, so the author hasn't upgraded to Android Z for some reason. Maybe that's why the April Fools Joke is 8 days early... the Google engineers from the future were not able to sync up their space-time coordinate sensors properly. :p

    We might have a few "space cadets" around here that qualify to post reviews for Google.
