Todd Ogasawara, Jon Westfall, and Frank McPherson discuss things we’re waiting for like Nougat, Chrome OS with Android apps production release, and Air Pods.

  1. Still no sign of Android 7.0 Nougat OTA for my Nexus 6.
  2. Google not taking advantage of both Apple and Microsoft deciding not to refresh its lower priced products or introduce replacements. If it doesn’t move its Android app running version of Chrome OS from beta to production soon, it is going to miss the holiday gift giving season. Acer Chromebook R 13 review. Ref: Laptop Mag
  3. Jon: Still no Air Pods
  4. Beats Solo 3 headphones. Ref: 9to6mac.
