Welcome to episode 148 of the Ausdroid Podcast! It’s time to catch up on the Android news of the week, from Australia and around the world.

This week, Australians have some new Nexus phones to play with and all is not-quite-right with one of them on a particular carrier. We’ll recap the launch highlights and shenanigans. We’ll also give some thoughts on Android 6.0 Marshmallow and talk about the love lost (or not lost? it’s so hard to tell) between Android and Chrome OS, and Dan will fill us in on Google’s OnHub router, which he’s been using for a few weeks now.

You can also watch us on your TV with Chromecast! Click here for the YouTube video.

    Before discovering the Nexus One, Jason thought he didn't need a smartphone. Now he can't bear to be without his Android phone. Jason hails from Sydney, Melbourne or Brisbane depending on his mood and how detailed a history you'd like. A web developer by day with an interest in consumer gadgets and electronics, he also enjoys reading comics and has a worryingly large collection of Transformers figures. He'd like to think he's a gamer, but his Wii has been in a box since he moved to Sydney, and his PlayStation Vita collection is quite lacking. Most mornings you'll find him tilting at various windmills on Twitter - follow @JM77 and say hi!
