The cat is out of the bag The Z5 is official then along with colours. All we need now are the official list of specs and when it'll be available.

I do like Sony devices but after a bad experience with a cracked screen I've never had one again. To be fair the retailer that I purchased it from and dealt with the return didn't help.

A Sony Nexus device would be nice.
 
Which colour tickles your fancy?
We are now just a few hours away from Sony's IFA 2015 press conference and before we get to the official details, we can reveal that Sony's new flagship models will indeed carry the “Xperia Z5” series name. This has been revealed by a marketing poster for the Xperia Z5 family – confirming the ...

All new G My Chromebook has all those new app updates. The most impressive out of the lot is the Google app. If you haven't got it on your mobile or tablet it should be hitting your device at any moment........

App update Google Maps Google have pushed out a new UI to the super Google Maps app. It looks a lot cleaner and feels easier to get around.

It isn't all about looking good though. Functionality is key and one particular new feature is when swiping up when looking at the new bigger map when you've selected destination and transport method you get not only a list of when you need to take a left but anything important such as accidents or info such as private roads.

Each mode of transport now shows you how long it will take to get you from A to B. Swiping from left to right at the bottom of maps allows you to change your mode. You may notice that some destinations may automatically have a route chosen as per the cycle route below or did that already happen?

It all looks very nice and certainly feels much better when working around the app. Although it may not have it your notification bar as being ready on Google Play but Android Police have the apk file available here

The new popular times option shows you how busy Lidl is at any given hour on a particular day. You can swipe through the days or choose from the drop down menu. Whenever you go it's that wait at the checkout that kills the whole experience.

APK Mirror have the apk file as it may not have landed on Google Play for you just yet. Get that here - http://goo.gl/WBw9aa or keep an eye over on Google Play via this link - https://goo.gl/3mUJCH

Are you sold on the idea of a smartwatch? Below is the ZenWatch 2 that'll be available from October going for £140 - £170 depending on which model you go for.

Samsung have released their new watches with both Motorola and LG set to announce their newest additions to the smartwatch line-up.

I've got one, I don't know many who have one though. What about you?

Download Amazon Instant Prime Video Watching your favourite shows and films is ever changing and whilst some like the BBC are stuck in the days of old with their funding method Amazon, Netflix, Sky and BT are changing the entire landscape.

Although downloading content to watch later isn't anything new it is new to customers of Amazon Prime Instant Video. The functionality is available to compatible devices running Android, iOS and Kindle devices.

There will be some shows that Amazon do not have any agreements in place for downloading but those titles that are eligible will have a download button so you can get stocked up with titles ready for a plane journey, a road trip or if you'll be anywhere else that has a poor network covergae.

I still think Netflix offers the better original shows and you can find some classic movies plus Chromecast support is a big win.

You'll need the Amazon Instant Video app and that's found by following these instructions - http://goo.gl/Quc3Dx

Should still be on Google Play though. We shouldn't have to sideload these apps just so Amazon can continue with their 'exclusively available from Amazon' moniker.

Android news for the UK, all things Android in the UK
Introduction
UK based Android blog hoping to bring all the news for Android users here in the UK. You won't find us on a website, after a trial with Google + we have decided to use what has to be a more fun, interactive and easier way to post. Most of my 'blogging' will be done using nothing more than a Nexus 7 3G tablet, great for posting on the go and takes full advantage of all the services Google has to offer. I may also use the super Nexus 4 to add content,
