Nexus 6, 9 and Lollipop are official

Nexus-FamilyGoogle have today announced the Nexus 6 from Motorola, the Nexus 9 tablet from HTC and Android Lollipop, the new version of Android. Rumours and leaks have been plenty on all three fronts as they usually are when it comes to new phones, tablets and OS versions and as usual, people haven’t been all that far off.

First up is the nexus 6, a 6 inch device from Motorola that sports specifications including a 13 megapixel rear camera,  a contoured aluminium frame and a 6-inch Quad HD display. What will be of great interest to many people I know are the front facing stereo speakers which

Next up Google have worked with HTC to bring their new tablet. The Nexus 7 from ASUS was a huge hit and no doubt a HTC tablet will do just as good. The Nexus 9 boasts a 8.9-inch screen that is perfect for both work and play and of course a great addition to your nexus 6.

The nexus Player is a the Google way of playing games and watching TV. This is made in conjunction with ASUS and will allow you to stream TV, film and you’ll also be able to play games on your TV.

Lollipop Forest

What has had many people guessing is the name for the next version of Android. I know that Lego isn’t a pudding or sweet but I was thinking that Google might have moved away from food stuff, Android Lego does have a good ring to it and I’m sure Google could have had some fun with Lego.

Instead we have Android Lollipop and some of you may have seen this in one of  their latest adverts for Google Search, a shop in New York that sells Lollipops had the red microphone you see when doing a voice search in place of a lollipop in their shop window.

Who’s going to be getting what and what do you reckon to the new line of Nexus devices?

More info can be found about the new nexus range over on the Android Blog.

UPDATE  23/10

Samsung have again delayed stock of the SIM free Galaxy Note 4 to online retailers.

If you have an order for the Gold colour option, please refer to your email regarding the availability of this (we have now emailed you).

CAT S50 vs CAT B15Q

What’s the difference between the CAT S50 and the CAT B15Q

Cat_S50_B15Q (9)In this post we take a look at how the CAT S50 and CAT B15Q compare to each other. We have them available to order respectively on the Clove website here and here.

CAT are slowly becoming a stronger and more recognised brand within the mobile industry.

Their devices have been designed to be rugged and fit the environments many would expect CAT products to be used; within the trades such as construction.

Many would consider them less desirable, but for those who need a tougher phone, their products have a high level of desirability, so how does the recently launched CAT S50 compare with the better known CAT B15Q?

In this post, we look to make comparison between them.

If you would like to watch the comparison, rather than read, then watch the video below.

Sony BSP10 Bluetooth Speaker User Guide/Manual

Sony BSP10 Bluetooth Speaker User Guide

Sony_BSP10_Bluetooth_SpeakeIt has never been so easy to consume media on the go. If it is not already stored on your device it is relatively simple to stream content to it.

When it is so easy to obtain it, then it should be just as vital that we enjoy that content on the best possible hardware.

Take music for example, if you have a high quality audio file, you want to appreciate the full sound as the artist intended, so you should opt for the best speakers possible to appreciate such.

Of course we all have a budget on what we can afford and is practical and that practicality comes into its own when listening to music on the go.

Sony have for a long time produced a range of Bluetooth speakers, and the BSP10 is their latest version and it is packed full of features.

Pairing with your phone, tablet or mobile device via Bluetooth, the sound is pumped through the high quality 5 Watt speaker. The SRS-BTV5 that the BSP10 replaces has just a 1.2 Watt speaker.

Great for music and even voice calls, delivering deeper bass and clearer highs, the compact speaker comes in two colours, black and white.

Weighing 300grams it is portable enough with a height of 6cm and diameter of just 8cm.

A built in battery should last for 7 hours of streaming and is capable of up to 400 hours of standby.

At some point that battery will deplete so you will need to recharge it. This is where the BSP10 is really quite innovative. It has Qi wireless charging on board, meaning all you need so is sit it on a wireless charging plate and the battery will be recharged. It works perfectly with the WCH10 charging plate from Sony. Of course there is a microUSB connection for traditional charging.

To make pairing simple too, the BSP10 has NFC in built for one touch pairing too.

Below you can find the digital version of the Sony BSP10 speaker user manual, so you can know all there is to know about this speaker.

Hopefully the user manual will answer any of the outstanding questions that you have about the SBH60, but if there is anything that isn’t covered or if you have any questions prior to purchasing, please feel free to ask in the comments or to contact our sales team.
