Is this lovely slab of glass Google's next reference Android handset? If we are indeed looking at the 3rd Nexus phone, it would point to HTC being the manufacturer of choice once more after Google dropped the company it used for the Nexus One in favor of Samsung when it came time to bring the Nexus S into the world. But that isn't the only note-worthy aspect of this leaked photo. Not by a long shot.
Rumors around the purported Nexus Two release are heating up. In a post on Android and Me, Taylor Wimberly has reported that Samsung, not HTC, will announce the N2 on 8th November and will be responsible for the hardware part of the phone. This news comes from various “trusted sources”.
Android 2.2 aka Froyo is without a doubt the best version of Android OS that we have seen yet! The main thing which everyone was interested to find out was about the speed of the browser which Google claims to be the fastest amongst any of the mobile web browsers available on any platform today.
Great news for Nexus One owners! It looks like Google has started rolling out Android 2.2 (aka Froyo) for their very own Google Phone, which is more widely known as the Nexus One. The update is available now via OTA (Over-the-Air) download and will take some time before the roll out completes. Keep checking the notification tray for a “System Alert” for Android 2.2 which could be here for you any minute.
Finally, Quake III (aka Quake 3) has been successfully ported to the Google Nexus One! The game runs smoothly with a high frame rate, thanks to Nexus One’s powerful hardware. The great thing about it is that you can give it a go on almost any Android phone as long as it has Android 1.6 or higher. Android 1.5 and below is a no go for now.
Great news for Android users! If you have been waiting for an update to Android 2.1, well your prayers have been half-answered. There’s now a huge possibility that a major OTA update is coming soon. Rumor has it that the Google branded Nexus One is going to be the first handset to get the update. But for other Android phones, 2.2 update may still be far off considering the fact that many are still stuck on version 1.6, let alone 2.x.
Dropbox - the highly popular and extremely useful web based file syncing service is coming soon to an Android phone near you. The Dropbox app for Android is expected to be available in the next few months, and is definitely worth a wait.
After years of cooperation, the two Silicon valley Titans are now converting themselves into Warlords. They seem to be dragger drawn and their rivalry is getting rather personal this time. This cold war between the two giants, has been going on for sometime now, and is slowly converting into into a full fledged battle.
The trackball LED on Google Nexus One has the ability to show different colored lights but Google for some reason has programmed it in a way, so that it can only flash one white color. This seems as a step backwards specially when some other Android phones have this ability to flash one or more colors for use with different phone notifications such as missed calls, new mail, SMS and so on.
Retaliating in a strong way to hacking attacks and to make a strong point, it was thought that Google had decided to call off the Android Developer Lab for Nexus One in Beijing, just a week ahead of the event. In a new update, a company spokesperson told All Things D that the report is erroneous.
