There has already been a lot of speculation about the future of Google TV. The internet search giant’s TV offering hasn’t established a strong footing in the market as yet, so it is believed that Google is committed to rebranding and reinvigorating the TV service. We have previously heard rumors that the Google TV moniker might be dropped and replaced with Android TV, however according to the latest report from The Information, it is possible that Google might push its TV service under its already popular and successful Nexus brand of products.
The new set-top box that Google is expected to launch in the first half of 2014 might be called Nexus TV. It is likely that the company might make a Google TV related announcement at the Consumer Electronics Show 2014, which takes place next month. While no hints have been dropped as yet, it is possible that the rebranding of the service will also include updating it to a much more current version of Android OS. At this point in time, Google TV is powered by Android 3.2 Honeycomb. It would certainly be interesting to see Google launch a struggling product under the umbrella of its popular Nexus product line, perhaps the perception that Nexus products have in front of millions of customers around the world would result into increased interest in Google’s TV offering. Time will certainly tell.

The Android 4.2.2 update won’t get a lot of people excited these days, considering the fact that this release is quite old now. Android 4.4 is in demand these days, however due to fragmentation on Google’s mobile platform, not all devices support the latest firmware version. So there are still quite a lot of people out there who would be happy to see Android 4.2.2 pop up for their devices. Case in point is the Verizon HTC Droid DNA, which has finally received this update. Droid DNA owners on the Big Red will finally be jumping up from Android 4.1.
One of the biggest features that this update brings in Sense 5, which includes new People and Calendar applications, BlinkFeed, new Gallery and dialer application. Apart from that, the usual slew of bug fixes is present, along with improvements to battery performance. Android 4.2.2 update for Verizon htc Droid DNA is being rolled out in two parts. First, users will receive build 2.08.605.1710RD which will prepare the device for build 3.06.605.4, the build that contains all of the new features. The update also, quite obviously, bumps up the core OS version from Android 4.1 to Android 4.2.2. Verizon is going to roll out the update over-the-air, and that too in stages. So a little patience will go a long way, even if the update notification hasn’t already popped up on your Droid DNA.
