12/15/2009, With more and more details of the Nexus One being leaked, rumors are also showing up fast and furiously. We’d like to stress that this is still firmly in the “rumor” bin, and according to the rumor, the Nexus One will cost $199 when launched, and it achieves this price point by being subsidized by Google. It’s hard to determine whether there’s any truth in this at the moment, and […]
12/15/2009, We’re fairly sure that over the next few days (or weeks at most) everybody is going to be familiar with the Nexus One boot up logo/animation. Folks have made screenshots of the boot up animation, and even more importantly, there is a short 5-second video on YouTube. Based on the video, it seems that the boot up time for the Nexus One is rather quick, which is certainly welcome.
12/14/2009, Interestingly enough, a new handset known as NEXUSONE has just gone through the folks at the FCC, where it bears the model number PB99100 and is built by HTC. The same FCC filing also points toward a microSD memory card slot, the inclusion of 802.11b/g Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR connectivity, quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE with UMTS/HSUPA on 850/1700/1900 frequencies. For the uninitiated, this would mean the 3G handset plays nice […]
12/14/2009, The Internet has been awash with news about it, and now live pictures of the phone with its home screen displayed have surfaced online! When we say pictures, we’re talking about clear pictures with legible next, not those blurry cam shots. According to the latest beef on this device, there will be some rather interesting features included. First off it seems that there will be 3D elements in the app […]
12/14/2009, Earlier today, Peter Kafka published that Google would work with T-Mobile (see previous rumor) to provide some support for the phone. Most of the time, carriers do not provide that for unlocked phones and that has been a serious problem so far for unlocked devices. By the way “T-Mobile” also means “GSM” if you still had any doubts. It is still not clear how carriers will react to Google’s decision […]
12/13/2009, This is what Nexus One looks like… just like an HTC Passion You have probably noticed in the past couple of days that the hype surrounding the network-free Google Nexus One phone has almost reached its climax. I say “almost” because Google has yet to officially reveal images of the phone that employees describe using words like “iPhone” and “Steroids” in the same sentence. The WSJ says that despite using Android, […]
12/13/2009, It’s going to be really hard to convince anybody that’s been reading the news for the past 24-hours that the Google Phone (Nexus One) doesn’t exist, and now a higher resolution picture of what is supposedly the Nexus One has surfaced. Of course, it’s physically the same as the HTC Passion, sans the HTC logo at the top of the phone. Could this be a photoshop job, or the real […]
12/13/2009, This is probably as close as we’ll get to an official confirmation on the Google Nexus One phone for the moment. Google has confirmed that it’s working on a new “mobile lab” concept, which is a device that will combine innovative hardware from a partner, and software that runs on Android. As we already know, the partner that Google is talking about is HTC (though it hasn’t been officially confirmed […]
12/13/2009, It seems that the Internet is awash with news on the Google Nexus One (a.k.a. the Google Phone). Now it seems that the phone is busy exploring the Internet, as not just one, but multiple sites have reported a “Nexus One” showing up in the traffic logs, and it’s running Android 2.1. Webmasters out there, has the Nexus One paid your site a visit yet?
