“At Google, our mission is to always use technology to help solve problems,” said Venkat Rapaka, Director of Product Management for Android and Chrome at Google.
“For us at Google, we don’t build for the few; we build for everyone.”
From the sounds of things, this operating system is about as built for everyone as it gets, though we’re sure, in time, Google will find ways of improving this more so.
For now, however, you’ll find Android 6.0 on the two Nexus devices which will be hitting stores and online from next week, while the update to Android 6.0 “Marshmallow” will be coming to other recent Android devices within the next six months or so.
If you are keen for them, you’ll find the LG-made Nexus 5X on its way to stores shortly, starting at $659 for the 16GB or $739 for the 32GB, with Telstra also receiving the phone on plan.
Google’s Huawei-made Nexus 6P will also arrive in stores on the same day (November 3) in more options, however, starting at $899 for the 32GB version, and fetching $999 for 64GB or $1099 for the 128GB variant, while both Vodafone and Optus will feature the Nexus 6P on plans.
