Google release the Nexus 6 smartphone
Recently, Google have released their largest smartphone to date, the Nexus 6. Though the Nexus 6 won't be available for purchase in the UK for a few weeks, the US Google Play store is now accepting pre-orders. Google's main aim, (when designing the Nexus 6,) wasn't chiefly, to design a smartphone or a phablet but, rather, to provide access to a handy, internet friendly device.

- Some reviewers suggest that the Nexus 6 would make an ideal tablet, (rather than a smartphone,) replacement, (given the size, and quality, of it screen.)
