Inspired by the overclocking capabilities of the Motorola Droid, folks at XDA-Developers have managed to overclock the most powerful Android phone available today – the Google Nexus One to 1.113Ghz. It is said to be running faster and is stable at this speed. It will be interesting to see how long can these XDA devs push to see the real potential and capabilities of this Qualcomm’s Snapdragon chip.
Most of you who are either following me on twitter, or are subscribed to our facebook fanpage may already know that I bought Nexus One today and just to make it a bit different, I decided to unbox it side by side with another similarly spec’ed phone – the HTC HD2. Both Nexus One and HTC HD2 are powered by 1Ghz Snapdragon processor.
We informed you about the Google Nexus One when it was rooted even before the official launch. This was possible because of the engineering bootloader which was shipped with pre-release Nexus One devices. The retail devices have locked bootloaders but Paul at Modaco forums has managed to unlock it so that you can root your retail Nexus One for full file system access on Android 2.1.
After weeks of rumors, gossips, leaks and revelations, the much hyped Nexus One (aka the Google Phone) has finally been unveiled today in a press event ceremony held at the Google Headquarters in Mountain View, California. Powered by Android 2.1 operating system, the Google Nexus One features 3.7’’ AMOLED screen, 1Ghz Snapdragon processor with 512mb of Ram and 5 megapixels autofocus camera with flash. The phone has been designed by Google and is manufactured through their partner HTC.
Today is the big day for the Android side of the house. It is today when Google is finally going to unveil its latest darling to take on the iPhones, Droids, Pres and the HD2s of this era. Folks at Engadget, who got their hands on the device before Google’s announcement has put up an excellent review which covers all the pros and cons of the said phone. Their final verdict on the handset hasn't changed much from a couple of days ago when they first got hold of it.
