Many smartphones are definitely doing their bit to jump aboard the KitKat bandwagon these days (those that are powered by Android, of course), and we have also seen our fair share of devices that have already made the plunge. Among them include the HTC One Google Play Edition, AT&T’s Moto X, not to mention T-Mobile’s version of the Motorola Moto X as well, in addition to the Nexus 4. Well, […]
When the word “satellite” is mentioned, what comes across your mind? Most folks would think of something large and unwieldy, full of mechanical bolts and nuts that only a rocket scientist can understand. Others would think of Soundwave from the Transformers movie, but the Strand-1 satellite here is touted to be the real deal. Seriously, it was announced a couple of years back, and is finally on course for takeoff […]
While it’s not that surprising to learn that Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean has made it onto the Nexus S, we guess we were kind of surprised to learn that the Nexus One has received Android 4.1 Jelly Bean has made it onto the device albeit in an unofficial way. XDA Recognized Developer, taxasice, has released a pre-alpha Jelly Bean ROM for the Nexus One and according to those who went […]
It looks like HTC phones sure are on a roll when it comes to getting the latest Android updates. Previously we reported about the HD2 and the G1 receiving Ice Cream Sandwich, and now we have another phone to add to the mix: the original Google flagship device aka the Nexus One. The CyanogenMod team have been hard at work porting Android 4.0 over to the phone, and it looks […]
Several days ago we reported that a port for Android’s Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0 had made its way onto the first ever Google Nexus device, the Nexus One. Unfortunately it appeared that the port looked a bit laggy on the Nexus One, but still looked passable, giving those still on the Nexus One device hope that perhaps Google will be releasing an official Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0 update for their […]
Earlier today we reported that the Android Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0 SDK was ported over to the Nexus S 4G, but for those still on their Nexus One handsets, it looks like porting Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0 over to your device may not be such a ludicrous idea after all, based on the video below.
If you’re a Nexus One user, the good news is that it looks like Google is rolling out an update for you guys! Granted the device is old and has been superseded by the Nexus S, we guess that Google did not forget about you guys out there and has rolled out the Android Gingerbread 2.3.6 update last night.The update seems to be targeted at unlocked and unbranded Nexus One […]
Do you wish sometimes that your smartphone could display certain information while running full screen apps i.e. viewing the time, signal or battery strength, notifications from SMS, e-mail or missed calls? Well if you don’t mind carrying a bit of extra bulk out with you in your pockets, perhaps follower’s self-made 2-line external display kit that he made for his Nexus One is something you could potentially make for yourself.
No, the title isn’t a typo and if you’re wondering – Gingerbread isn’t officially on the Nexus One yet, how can it get Honeycomb? Well, thanks to the folks over at XDA-developers, they have managed to port over the latest version of Android onto the Nexus One. As usual with early builds – the phone is pretty much unusable at this state. No WiFi, accelerometer, sound, camera, Bluetooth, making calls […]
There is a handful of people out there who rock to the new Nexus S, while a sizeable amount of you are having fun with the Google Nexus One – well, sad to say that a certain percentage of both phones’ owners have experience a bug where SMS messages are sent to the wrong person – good thing this bug has been squashed by Google, as the Internet search giant […]
If you’ve been a patient little grasshopper waiting for MeeGo to get released on official hardware from Nokia and others in a smartphone, tablet, infotainment system, or any other gadget that Nokia and Intel can stuff MeeGo into, it turns out you can get MeeGo working right now. For those who have decided to temporarily settle for an Android handset while MeeGo is getting developed, you can get MeeGo hacked […]
Details are still pretty scarce at the moment, but an interesting rumor is going around claiming that Facebook is secretly working to come up with a mobile phone of its own, similar to what Google did with its Nexus One. Considering how alluring the simple games and social networking features of Facebook are, it wouldn’t be too surprising to find a Facebook-oriented phone addictive. Of course, the benefit of such […]
The Nexus One might not challenge the macro photo capabilities of your DSLR anytime soon, but that doesn’t mean you can’t use it to take good macro shots – with a little help. A user out there has created a nifty macro lens attachment for the Nexus One, getting the lens from a pair of mini binoculars, and fastening it to a mounting bracket using epoxy putty. The interesting thing […]
You might have heard of some of the connectivity issues that the Nexus One had before this, and now a class action lawsuit has been filed against Google, citing breach of contract. The plaintiff claims that the phone failed to maintain 3G connectivity while Google made misleading claims about the product’s capabilities, and also failed to properly support customers who were searching for answers. It’s also worth noting that the […]
