    The main rumors regarding the Nexus 6 turned out to be true. The next Nexus device is a Motorola made product. The Nexus 6 is a phablet-style smartphone of epic proportions. In the video above, Google "gets a party started" by trying to bring together all the Android OEMs in some way. The Motorola Nexus 6 phone is prominently on display in various sections of the video. Although Google didn't release the full internal spec-list in their blog, they did give a brief description of the device. Here's a quote,

    "First, with Motorola, we developed the Nexus 6. This new phone has a contoured aluminum frame, a 6-inch Quad HD display and a 13 megapixel camera. The large screen is complemented by dual front-facing stereo speakers that deliver high-fidelity sound, making it as great for movies and gaming as it is for doing work. It also comes with a Turbo Charger, so you can get up to six hours of use with only 15 minutes of charge."

    From these few details it appears at least some of the rumored specs were right. We can't wait to try get our hands on the Nexus 6 and take it for a spin. Here's a direct link to Google's landing page for the Nexus 6: Nexus 6 Google

    As long as it supports external USB devices I no longer see that as a problem. I have a 64GB thumb drive that is about the size of the plug on the end of a charger cable. I can plug it into my Galaxy Nexus or First Gen Nexus 7 and have all the files or movies available (or music) I need. Down side is I don't have a connector that can charge it while the usb drive is plugged in. To get around that I download one movie at a time to the device, remove the usb drive, plug in external battery and enjoy with no issues. When finished delete and repeat.

    PS - both of these devices are rooted and use stick mount but I have also used in on newer devices with no root needed or issues.

    So I see the fast charge bit. Wondering what the time to fully charge the battery is.

    So let's see. Size penalty, dollar penalty, no wireless charging.....

    Not sold just yet.....

    But the specs are better than thought.. It's running the same guts as the turbo except for a smaller battery... So now it's a debate of.. Will vzw get in the way of things like the 2012 model? Will lollipop make it battery efficient enough to not need a huge battery like the turbo has?? Will Verizon have a package deal for those of us that want both?? Lmao

    "Be together. Not the same"
    I actually like that slogan.I can have an LG phone and an Asus tablet and a Moto smart watch and all my stuff works together. OR... I can have an iPad and a iPhone and be the same because one is just a bigger version of the other.
