Google: Nexus One web store closing

by: Derek ScottJuly 16, 2010

Google Nexus One

Google has officially announced the closing of its Nexus One online web store.  The company said it has received its last shipment of the device and, once sold out, the store will shut down for good. Customer support will still be available for Nexus One owners, if needed. Google also added that the Nexus One will continue to be sold by partners including Vodafone in Europe, KT in Korea, and some local markets.

Nexus One receives additional Android 2.2 Froyo update, FRF91

by: James TromansJuly 2, 2010

Google Nexus One

A forum thread over at XDA-Developers has revealed that the Google Nexus One is receiving yet another official OTA update to Android 2.2, bringing the build up to FRF91. The word on the street is that this update is a security fix, and as one XDA forum poster notes; “My guess would be that it’s probably a fix to the exploit which allows people to root without unlocking the bootloader.” Of course, it is his guess. If you want to check out the update file yourself you can access it here.

The update .zip is only 2m large and this makes it obvious that it does not contain a huge amount of updates.

Google releases Android 2.2 OTA to the Nexus One

by: James TromansJune 29, 2010

Google Nexus One

It is official. Google have now released the fabled update to Android 2.2 (aka Froyo) for the Nexus One. As you may no doubt be aware, Google actually rolled out a Froyo update back in May to a handful of Nexus One devices. Of course, this version found its way online and coders around the world did their part to bring the update to all sorts of Android devices. Now, the update to Froyo is official, every Nexus One in America should receive the update over-the-air (OTA).

Here is the announcement from the official Google Mobile Blog;

Starting today, Nexus One users will begin to receive the Android 2.2 (codenamed Froyo) [...]

Android 2.2 FRF83 update OTA available

by: James TromansJune 24, 2010

Android 2.2 FRF83 update

After a somewhat cryptic comment the other day from Google on their official support blog, the Android 2.2 FRF83 update may have now been released and is being pushed over-the-air (OTA) to many Nexus One devices. The news comes after Android and Me found that the OTA updates had happened to their devices and XDA-Developers posted the source file in .ZIP format

It will also be interesting to see what (if anything) Google have changed in this latest build of the Android 2.2, aka Froyo. We have already been informed that Google are not only looking to increase the time between iterations of the Android firmware, but also [...]

Nexus One coming ot South Korea with KT

by: James TromansJune 18, 2010

Nexus One with KT

Thanks to carrier KT, the Google Nexus One (N1) is headed to South Korea this month. Come June 21st there will be a conservative 4,000 units available initially. Roll on July and the device will be ‘widely available’.

There are no real surprises with this device other than the fact the N1 with KT is set to come preinstalled with Android 2.2, aka, Froyo. This version of Android brings with it a boost in speed along with a line of wishful eyes. The device will be available contract-free for the grand sum of 699,600 won (or about $576). Of course, you will also be able to pick it up for around 150,000 won (or $125) on a [...]

Android 2.2 Froyo launched too early?

by: James TromansMay 25, 2010

Froyo released too early?

For those that are blissfully unaware, Google started pushing Android 2.2 (Froyo) to the Nexus One a little over 3 days ago. However, Google put the update file online for those users that wanted to do the update themselves manually (and avoid the wait!). However, after shortly doing so, Google promptly removed this file and nothing more was said.

Of course, the file found its way online anyway since many users had already downloaded it. It turns out that those users who downloaded this file and installed it manually may have installed an ‘unfinished’ version of Froyo, or at least one which was not properly [...]

Manually update your Nexus One to Android 2.2 Froyo

by: Michael OrylMay 22, 2010

That didn’t take long. The over the air (OTA) update for Froyo on the Nexus One just started last night, and already somebody has found the update file on a Google server (for the T-Mobile version, at least).  The Google link comes from XDA-Developers, and the directions below are taken from an old AndroidCentral post. The safest way to get the Froyo update is to just wait for it to come OTA, of course.  Do the manual update at your own risk….

Download the update zip file from Google. Rename the file to update.zip. Copy the update.zip file onto your microSD card. With your Nexus One off, hold down the trackball and press the power button. You’ll be booted into [...]

Google Nexus One going to stores, web sales to end

by: Michael OrylMay 14, 2010

Google Nexus One

Today Google’s Andy Rubin announced that Google was going to transition its Nexus One smartphone away from its web-only sales system to one that will see the device offered by retail partners, as it does in Europe.

This seems to be an admission by Google that its web based sales of the Nexus One didn’t work so well. People like to see and try what they are buying, especially when it costs half grand.

Rubin’s entire post  is available after the jump.

CDMA Nexus One dead – not going to Sprint or Verizon

by: Michael OrylMay 11, 2010

Google Nexus One

Yesterday Sprint confirmed to us that the CDMA version of the Nexus One would not become available on its network ever. It was only a little over a week ago that the “coming soon” Verizon version of the device was removed from Google’s Google.com/phone page, where it sells the versions for T-Mobile USA and AT&T.  The Verizon link on Google’s site now points to the HTC DROID Incredible on VerizonWireless.com.  Similarly, Sprint said that it is instead offering the HTC EVO 4G this summer.

Considering the amount of time it took to get the CDMA version of the Nexus One ready, this seems to have been [...]

Our HTC Desire review – as good as it gets today

by: Michael OrylApril 9, 2010

HTC Desire

I’ve just posted Russell Jefferies’ HTC Desire review on our sister site, MobileBurn.com. The Desire is HTC’s version of the Android 2.1-powered Google Nexus One, but it features some slightly upgraded hardware (like an optical joystick) and all of the goodness that is HTC’s Sense user interface extensions.

Russell loves the device, and chances are good that you will as well.

You can read the full HTC Desire review here, or you can jump to our prior post to see just the videos without all of those messy words getting in the way.

I’ve included a gallery of photos from the review after the jump.
