Google puts the kibosh on Nexus 5 smartphone sales

First ever Google Shop opens in London | Latest News & Updates at Daily News & Analysis.

And Google’s laptop – an update to the first Pixel released about two years ago – packs the same new connector technology as the MacBook, referred to as USB-C. The store will provide an opportunity to the customers to browse through its range of Android Phones, tablets, and Chromebook laptops and Chromecasts. What makes the new USB connector technology important is that it allows hardware companies to build thinner laptops, can double as a charging port, and pushes data around much faster than previous USB connectors. “It’s small enough to work with smartphones, powerful enough to charge computers, and conveniently symmetrical (no more guessing which side is up!),” according to a blog post by Andrew Bowers, director of consumer hardware at Google. Other features that Google is touting include the latest, fifth generation, Intel Core processor, a high-resolution (2,560 x 1,700) 12.85-inch touch display, and up to 12 hours of battery life – not unlike the specs that Apple touted on Monday (Apple’s new MacBook has a high-res display and claims all-day battery life.) In addition to the standard model, Google is offering what it calls an LS version (LS stands for “Ludicrous Speed”) “that’s even faster,” Bowers wrote.

That means it requires an Internet connection for most tasks but bootup is almost instantaneous and the OS does automatic updates, backups, and virus protection in the background. James Elias, the UK marketing director for Google, said, “We’re incredibly excited to launch this space – the first of its kind anywhere in the world – in London with Currys PC World. With the Google shop, we want to offer people a place where they can play, experiment and learn about all of what Google has to offer; from an incredible range of devices to a totally-connected, seamless online life. We think it’s a genuinely unique try-before-you-buy experience.” The shop plans to host ‘Virtual Space Camps’ and ‘Open House’ events for kids and teachers to learn about coding and other educational tools.
