    Nexus One Gets A Taste Of Ice Cream Sandwich Thanks To CM9

    Google may have run out of love for the Nexus One as far as Ice Cream Sandwich is concerned, but that doesn’t mean the legions of loyal Android developers have. An intrepid dev named TexasIce on the XDA forums has managed to get an early build of CyanogenMod 9 up and running on Google’s first Nexus device, and it looks mighty impressive for a work-in-progress.

  • Honeycomb Ported To The Nexus One


    This one is only for die-hard modders that only use a Nexus One for shits and giggles. But if that’s you, how about installing Honeycomb on your Nexus One? Of course you sort of need to know how to install these sort of things, but you’ll certinally be the coolest kid on the block if your Nexus One runs Honeycomb. Sure, this port doesn’t allow for silly things like placing… Read More

  • Twitter awash with Nexus One owners claiming to have received Gingerbread

    Now, this is firmly in the unconfirmed basket, as the only proof I’ve seen of an update reaching a Nexus one is the first part of a two-part upgrade, but some Twitter users are getting all a flutter, claiming that Android 2.3, aka Gingerbread, has arrived on their device. Read More

  • Nexus One Hacked To Support T-Mobile WiFi Calling

    Where there’s a will, there’s a way — especially when said “will” is shared amongst a chunk of the Android hacking community. If you’ve got a Nexus One on T-Mobile and just can’t seem to hold a signal, that will just worked in your favor: thanks to efforts out of the good ol’ XDA-Dev forums, the N1 now has (totally unofficial) support for… Read More

  • Nexus One Getting Android 2.3 "Gingerbread" Update In "The Next Few Days"?

    Google had originally wanted to launch the Nexus Two device alongside Android 2.3, the next release of their mobile operating system, also known as “Gingerbread”. That’s not going to happen. The Nexus Two has been delayed. But it appears that Google is full steam ahead on the Gingerbread release. In fact, it may be hitting the Nexus One in the next few days. This news comes… Read More

  • The Nexus One Was Google's Dream. The Carriers Were Freddy Krueger.

    The Nexus One Was Google's Dream. The Carriers Were Freddy Krueger.

    “Your mobile phone should be free.” That was Google CEO Eric Schmidt talking to Reuters in November of 2006. It was just about a year before the Android project was first unveiled. It was also just a few months before the iPhone was introduced (Schmidt was a member of Apple’s Board at the time). At that point, Schmidt had to know that both Google and Apple were on the verge… Read More

  • Google Sued Over Nexus One 3G Connectivity Problems, Misleading Claims

    On Tuesday, Google was slapped with a breach of contract class action lawsuit alleging that its Nexus One smartphone failed to maintain 3G connectivity and that the Mountain View company not only made misleading claims about the product’s capabilities but also failed to adequately support customers in search of answers. Plaintiff Nathan Nabors of Florida is seeking damages and class… Read More

  • In Death, Nexus One Does What It Couldn't Do In Life: Sell

    Remember when Google killed the Nexus One a month ago? Yeah, it’s still sold in a few places here and there, but it’s mostly dead. And apparently it had to die in order to find its heaven: Android app developers. A new post tonight on the Android Developers Blog declares that the now-for-developers-only Nexus One has proven to be “a little too popular.” As Tim Bray… Read More

    100% Proof From Tawkon: Death Grip Impacts iPhone 4, BlackBerry Bold & Nexus One (Video)

    Remember how back during the Antennagate press conference, Steve Jobs explained that all smartphones have an Achilles Heel known as their antenna? Oh sure, we all rolled our eyes and then oohed and aahed when we learned we’d get bumpers. Well guess what… Jobs was right. Again. And now, courtesy of Tawkon we’ve got the proof. A video produced by Tawkon clearly demonstrates… Read More

  • Google Offering "Dev Phone" Nexus One Running 2.2 For $529


    The official “Google Phone,” the kinda dead Nexus One, is still Google’s official “dev phone.” The phone, available unlocked for $529, is running the latest Android version and includes the “Google Experience” suite for Android development. The Nexus One combines an up-to-the-minute platform (Android 2.2), modern hardware, and the pure Google… Read More

  • Google's Nexus One supply is exhausted

    Well, that was a fun run. Google is now officially done selling the Nexus One. It’s not that big of a surprise as it broke last week that Google’s last shipment was en-route. After the inventory dried up, they were done selling cell phones directly to consumers. Well, at least they were done for now. It’s hard to say that Google will never do it again, but it probably… Read More

  • Self-Declared Longtime Nokia And Symbian Fanboy Gives Up, Goes Android

    As if Nokia needed yet another wake-up call, self-declared ‘Nokia fanboy since 1999′ Ricky Cadden, aka Symbian Guru is so utterly fed up with the company and the products it releases that he’s quitting his blog (via Mobile Entertainment). Cadden has purchased himself a Nexus One and seems well on his way to become an Android fanboy. Anyone with the slightest interest in… Read More

  • Report: Mobile Searches Estimated To Grow To 20 Percent Of Total By 2012

    Mobile search could grow from 9 percent of all queries this year to 20 percent by 2012, estimates RBC analyst Ross Sandler in a new report issued today. There is still a huge gap between mobile’s share of overall search queries and its share of search advertising. Sandler estimates that mobile will still represent less than 2 percent of search ad budgets this year, compared to the… Read More

  • An iPhone Lover's Take On The HTC EVO 4G

    An iPhone Lover's Take On The HTC EVO 4G

    Back in January, I wrote a post entitled An iPhone Lover’s Take On The Nexus One. At the time, the Nexus One was soon to be released as the latest and greatest Android phone, and a number of iPhone users were wondering whether it was worth it to switch for the benefits of Android (and perhaps more importantly, another network besides AT&T). My take: it was the best Android phone yet… Read More

  • Google Confirms Froyo Launch: "The roll out to Nexus One devices has begun!"

    Last last night (early this morning) there was some confusion about our post indicating that Android 2.2, Froyo, had started to roll out. Some thought we had Photoshopped the pictures (I wish I was that good at Photoshop), others though we were just using the developer build, and others thought we got some sort of special press copy. But rest easy people, I have in my inbox a confirmation… Read More

  • A Late Night Froyo Treat! Android 2.2 Goes Live On The Nexus One

    A Late Night Froyo Treat! Android 2.2 Goes Live On The Nexus One

    Sometimes there are advantages to staying up really late at night. I had just laid down in my bed to try and get some sleep before an early flight to New York tomorrow when I remembered I hadn’t charged my Nexus One. I reached over to my bedside table to grab it, and I see an alert letting me know a system update is available. Having just read numerous reports that Android 2.2 would… Read More

  • Google's Nexus One Store Is Going Out Of Business

    When Google launched its Nexus One Android phone, it also launched alongside it an online phone store where the Nexus One and future Android phones would be for sale. It was a slightly disruptive play to de-link the purchase of a phone from an actual carrier. The idea was, you could pick your phone, pick your plan, and mix and match. Well, it didn’t turn out that way. Carriers… Read More

  • Can the Nexus One run Quake 3? Yup.

    All this port needs is the Wii Remote hack from earlier and it will be near perfect. A PS3 Bluetooth controller would make it perfect. Now that Quake 3 has been ported, how about some Half-Life action? Read More

  • Control your Nexus One or Droid with a Wii Remote for fun and profit

    If you have a Nexus One or Motorola Droid and play classic games with an emulator, you must do this hack. It essentially turns the Nexus One into a full-fledge portable gaming system. The Wii Remote is even small enough to travel with, too. Can’t you see yourself pulling out the phone and firing up Metroid while cruising at 30,000 feet? I can. [via NeverKnowTech] Read More

    Mozilla Officially Unveils A Pre-Alpha Test Version Of Firefox For Android

    Late last month, a number of sites noted that a very early build of Fennec, the mobile version of Firefox, was available to download for Android phones. However, that build wasn’t official as it was put together by an individual and optimized for the Droid device. Today, Mozilla has itself put out a pre-Alpha build of Fennec that should work at the very least on Droid and the Nexus… Read More
