Here’s what we know about PhoneSat, NASA’s coolest technological venture into space: it’s low-cost and it’s sporting none other than the ‘droid. It’s actually part of the CubeSat Launch Initiative that ties in small consumer electronics with working nanosatellites.

Although the eager hackers from XDA developers have already launched a Jelly Bean port for the Google / HTC Nexus One, the people behind CyanogenMod have recently announced that the first Nexus smartphone ever will not be officially compatible with Cyanogen versions beyond 7.x (Gingerbread). Unfortunately, there are also a bunch of other smartphones that won’t be getting official support for Cyanogen Mod 9+, namely almost all smartphones that are based on the first generation Qualcomm Snapdragon processors (this translates into “all smartphones using a QSD8x50, MSM7x25, MSM7x27 or MSM7x27T SoC”).

As it turns out, the myTouch Huawei smartphone looks a…

The Nexus One is the device that many people had once craved for. But, let’s face it–it is not a hot thing anymore, as better devices are popping out in the market. This is inevitable, though–a time will definitely have to come when a product becomes obsolete.  In this case, obsolete in terms of the “What’s the hot thing?” criterion. But, for those who have kept their Nexus One alive, there is great news for you. The time for your Nexus One to get some slick and classy upgrade has finally come. For those who still do not know, version…
