I have been extensively testing the new HTC Sense from HTC Desire ROM on Nexus One and so far has been very impressed with what HTC has to offer with this new version of Sense experience for Android phones. This ROM with Sense also packs Flash Player 10.1 for Android which is officially slated for Android 2.x release sometime this year.
Paul at Modaco forums has finally released a very alpha version of the HTC Desire ROM with HTC Sense for Nexus One that we posted about a few days ago. The ROM also packs Flash 10.1 for Android along with lots of widgets for the HTC Sense experience. There are some bugs and glitches here and there but since its an alpha ROM, these can be expected. Here is how it looks like running on Nexus One.
Folks over at Modaco forums are working on porting the new HTC Sense experience from the newly released HTC Desire over to the Google-branded Nexus One phone. For those of you who don't know, HTC Desire was unveiled yesterday by HTC at the Mobile World Congress 2010. Specs wise, this phone is exactly as powerful as the Google phone with 1Ghz processor, 512MB RAM, 3.7’’ AMOLED display and so on. Since it is a HTC branded phone, it comes with a unique HTC Sense experience with exclusive HTC-designed widgets.

Windows Phone 7 Series refers to the next-generation Windows phones running Windows Phone OS 7.0.
A new Android 2.1 ROM for Google Nexus One has leaked in the wild. This new ERE36B non-OTA is said to include a new radio, in a bid to fix the ongoing 3G issue which has been hampering T-Mobile Nexus One users since its January 5th launch.
Google today has released a significant update for their flagship Android phone - Nexus One almost right after when Apple pushed firmware 3.1.3 for iPhone users. This new update (ERE27) for Nexus One brings the much needed official support for multitouch in Web Browser, Maps and 3D Gallery. You can now finally use pinch-to-zoom gestures just like how you can on an iPhone. This update also fixes the 3G issue which has been bugging T-Mobile users. The complete feature list as illustrated on the official blog is as follows.
Google Ads on Youtube has once again leaked info on an upcoming product. This time its about Nexus One Dock, which was first spotted back in December via a FCC filing last year. The ad reveals the price of the dock along with other capabilities for the Google Nexus One phone which is manufactured by HTC.
Like the Motorola Droid on Verizon, US version of Nexus One which was launched by Google earlier this month didn’t ship with a multitouch capable web browser even though the hardware and Android 2.1 OS is fully capable of doing it. This surely was a set back considering the fact that iPhone can do it since 2007. But now folks over at XDA-Developers have released a Nexus One add-on, which enables full multitouch functionality, including gestures like pinch-to-zoom in Nexus One’s native web browser.
If you are a Nexus One user and are having issues getting full 3G network speeds on your phone, Kevin C. Tofel of jkontherun may have a solution for you. Kevin has been stuck with EDGE connectivity on his Nexus One using T-Mobile network for over a week, despite the fact that his old G1 was able to pull full broadband speed from the same network in exact same location. After applying a simple fix, he has been since able to get full mobile broadband speeds even after reboots.
The dispute over censorship row on Google search engine by Chinese authorities has not been resolved as yet. In fact, it has now gone so messy that Google has been forced to postpone the launch of two of its new Android phones from Motorola and Samsung on the Chinese mainland. These two Android phones were originally scheduled to be released on Wednesday on the China Unicom carrier. Google did not specify as to when or if ever the launch would take place.
