Final update to Android 7.1 Developer Preview

Today we’re rolling out an update to the Android 7.1 Developer Preview -- the last before we release the final Android 7.1.1 platform to the ecosystem. Android 7.1.1 includes the developer features already available on Pixel and Pixel XL devices and adds optimizations and bug fixes on top of the base Android 7.1 platform. With Developer Preview 2, you can make sure your apps are ready for Android 7.1.1 and the consumers that will soon be running it on their devices.

We’re also expanding the range of devices that can receive this Developer Preview update to Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Nexus 9, and Pixel C.

Why is the Nexus line discontinued?

Official response: We're building our own hardware and Nexus means working with OEM partners which is notnon our current plans.

Real situation: We're killing Nexus because they're the only real competition to our new Pixels.

What used Nexus to mean?

Developer friendly devices, unlockable, hackable and perfect test scenarios for developers to start working on the latest API level as soon as possible. We didn't care about it having a "terrific" camera or a beautiful design. They were the Android war machines for any developer who wanted to build software ontop the platform.

What does this mean to developers?

If you want to work on the latest API level you need to buy a really expensive premium device that you'll probably enjoy as a user but not as a developer.

So no custom ROMs for Pixels till AOSP gets 7.1 (who would flash a 7.0 ROM on a device that ships with 7.1?). Probably no custom ROMs nor kernels on any Verizon Pixel. No MR1 code push till sometime Q1 2017. No MR1 preview build on Nexus until end of the year. And well no Pixel exclusive features on AOSP (yay more proprietary code on Android).

Google, the new Apple?
