The New Nexus phones are live in India! Some stores in the country will get the devices available soon, but until then, customers can pre-order a Nexus 5X or a Nexus 6P if they wish. They can order one from Amazon India where reports suggest they will also find some interesting gifts, at least from one of the smartphones.
The Nexus 5X is available on Amazon India for Rs 31,990 or $490, and you will also be getting Amazon Gift Cards worth as up as Rs 5,000, a free Bluetooth headset, cashback from apps and a free screen replacement if need be.
The nexus 6P pre-orders will begin tonight on Flipkart and the device will sell for Rs 39,999 or $615. There is no official news regarding possible gifts with this device.
The new Turing phone is ready to be pre-ordered and you will be amazed by its looks. This un-hackable device is the epitome of the smartphone in the sense that it is deconstructed and reconstructed around the premise of an in-hackable piece of tech. It was designed around this functionality only and it is supposed to keep you and your data completely safe from any malware, virus or data digger around. You can pre-order one now if you want to pay between $610 – $1299, but there’s a catch we will elaborate more about in a minute.
The Turing phone has a hardened version of Android 5.1 with a fingerprint reader, no ports and end-to-end encryption. No ports means no USB devices to connect it to and no jack for headphones or a charger. The spec list includes a 5.5-inch 1080p LCD screen plus a Snapdragon 801 processor paired with 3GB of RAM, a 13MP camera and a 3000 mAh battery.
Thing is, there’s a catch to pre-ordering. You can do so only if you reserved one of these babies a while back. If you did or know someone who did it, you can pre-order, send or get an invitation to pre-order. No one knows if there will be a limit on invitations per year or a limit on these smartphones altogether.
You get three standard Turing phone versions plus a limited edition Dark Wyvern Glaedr, a gold-accented flamboyant device. This gold one costs the most of course, being situated at $1299, whereas the other three range in price according to their storage option: 32GB for $610, 64GB for $740 or 128GB for $870.
But wait! we have more! you can dress your Turing phone in armor! A Turing Armor case adds some features of their own, including a USB port, a jack for headphones, 128GB of extra storage, an extra 3000 mAh battery and WiGig wireless tech. WiGig wireless tech is branded as the first 5G wireless technology attempt and it is aimed at data transfer between the phone and the case storage, but it also works between two cases. It is said that this type of connectivity can move at 2.5Gbps. The case has not yet appeared in any official photos.
Just in case you really want a Turing Phone for its looks or its security but you can’t pay up front, there’s a deal floating around named “ServiceOne=”. This way you pay $21 to $43 per month on the phone and you can upgrade to the second generation Turing next year in the process. You would have to return the original when you get the second one though.

It appears that every year, Apple manages to break yet another record. This time, the high-tech monolith managed to sell no less than four million iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus devices in the timeframe of only 24 hours! The devices are preordered of course, since the official commercial launch of the new generation of Apple products will take place on Friday, September 19.
It seems that the pre-order hype will pose as a difficulty for a large number of customers as the pre-order supply is long exceeded. Most preorders will be taken care of in September and October, as Apple sources say. The striking sales come a few days after the annoying pre-order process which lead to the discovery that iPhone 6 Plus is in short supply. Apple rarely releases the number of pre-order devices but last year it reported selling over two million iPhone 5 devices in the first 24 hours after the launch and more than five million in the first weekend after the launch.
