Nexus Prime May Come with Google Chrome as Stock Web Browser

by: Elmer MontejoOctober 3, 2011

A report by tech site ConceivablyTech mentions that Google Chrome is just about ready for Android. The first version of Chrome for Android is expected to come out any time this month, according to the site.

Based on the Chromium opensource project, Google Chrome for Android will reportedly bring many of the features of Google Chrome’s desktop version into the Android version. Google is reportedly unifying Google Chrome and making it run across multiple platforms (including, but not limited to, Android, Chrome OS, Windows, Linux, and Mac OS).

Google is not just unifying Chrome. Google is also said to be almost done with another major unification effort–that [...]

Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich Caught on Cam for 2 Minutes

by: Elmer MontejoSeptember 29, 2011

One guy only wanted to buy a Nexus S from eBay. Instead, the lucky fellow got more than just Android 2.3 Gingerbread–he got a Nexus S allegedly running the Android version destined for the upcoming Nexus Prime–Android 2.4/4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS)–and caught it on camera, too.

Engadget got a copy of the footage and reported that the source found Android build IRK48 and kernel 3.0.1 on the Nexus S that the source bought from eBay.

True to Google’s promise of bringing together the best elements of Android’s smartphone-optimized fork (Android 2.3 Gingerbread) and Android’s tablet-optimized fork (Android 3.2 Honeycomb), the ICS [...]

Samsung DROID Prime — Verizon’s Reason for Snubbing Samsung Galaxy S II

by: Elmer MontejoAugust 30, 2011

Is the Motorola DROID Bionic Verizon’s real reason for passing up the Samsung Galaxy S II? We previously answered with a confident yes to that question–until new rumors started circulating about another potential big reason for Verizon to let the Samsung Galaxy S II arrive on U.S. shores without taking a bite of some of the Galaxy S II’s glory. There is another glorious phone coming up, one more sensational and more powerful than the Samsung Galaxy S II–the Samsung DROID Prime, which many purport to be the Nexus Prime rumored and speculated about earlier.

Sources “close” to tech blog Boy Genius Report (BGR) have whispered that [...]

Samsung Lawyer Confirms Nexus Prime Does Exist

by: Elmer MontejoAugust 26, 2011

Google’s reference phone for the upcoming Android 2.4/4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich exists. It will be called Nexus Prime, not Nexus Plus or Nexus 3. Samsung is going to manufacture the Nexus Prime. Firmware for the Nexus Prime leaked out. Someone got hold of the firmware. Samsung doesn’t want him/her to release it or disclose it publicly without Samsung’s consent.

Samsung’s own legal department confirmed these juicy tidbits about the Nexus Prime–that is, if the cease and desist letter that Geek reported about earlier today is authentic.

A developer apparently got hold of leaked firmware purported to be that of the Nexus Prime. When Samsung [...]

New 7-Inch Sharp Galapagos Tablet On Its Way

by: Aerol BibatJuly 2, 2011

Sharp seems to be readying another one of their entries into the tablet wars. A first look at a 7-inch Android tablet which will be marketed under its Galapagos brand name is already available. The 7-inch size comfortably puts it in between Sharp’s other offerings in the tablet market, which are at 5.5- and 10.8-inches respectively. It’s already undergoing review at the FCC – though the details are a bit sketchy. The only confirmed bit of data is that it will come with a WiFi-radio.

This means that the upcoming Android tablet will probably be not packing 3G/4G radio – limiting its Internet options. Be prepared that this tablet will most likely not [...]

Ice Cream to Incorporate Honeycomb’s Best for Android Phones

by: Darcy LaCouveeFebruary 4, 2011

Google has been met with the question time and time again: will Honeycomb ever make it to phones? You had to guess that their answer has either always been “no” or “we don’t know” by now – that version of Android is just too fleshed out for phones. That doesn’t mean tastes of Honeycomb won’t affect future phone versions of Android though. Phandroid just got word from a trusted source that Google has begun building a new branch of code – being called GRI17 (Gingerbread post-Honeycomb, aka “Ice Cream”) – that aims to bring some of the new elements found in Honeycomb over to phones. What features they’d be bringing over and to what extent isn’t known yet, but I can’t imagine optional [...]
