The grammar-precise side of me cringes a little when using the word “nexai,” but from an accessibility perspective, it fits well! Join Me, Leo, and Quentin on a Marshmallow expedition in this edition of the VIP roundtable podcast, as Cool Blind Tech dissects the Google event and uncovers an array of nexus devices.
First, we have the Nexus 5X. The device features a 5.2 inch screen at a resolution of 1080 x 1920, a Snapdragon 64-bit 808 processor, and 2 gigabytes of ram. It comes in 16 or 32 GB versions. Google also talked up their new always-on OK Google feature, but why not listen to the podcast to find out more? The phone starts at $379 USD.
The other phone, The Nexus 6P features a larger 5.7 inch screen, a faster CPU, but at a higher $499 price point.
Finally, we spoke of some of the features in Marshmallow, such as the new features for permissions. Find a list of features here, as posted on the Android website.
Google also introduced a slew of Chromecast devices. One is the Regular $35 Chromecast which features better wifi with dual-band AC, plus a detachable HDMI cable. Another is the Chromecast Audio , which is also $35 but is geared towards audio-only streaming, through a 3.5 MM aux jack to your stereo or through optical input.
