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...

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 An...

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...

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 cou...

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...

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...

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...

Sprint has just announced that a version of the Google Nexus One will be available for use on its network, just as one is planned for Verizon’s network.  The phone will be sold directly by Google... at Google.com/phone, though pricing and availability information have not yet been released.

This makes sense, really, since the same hardware that runs on Verizon’s network would be able to...

Google Nexus One

Though Google has yet to make any kind of official announcement, a new version of the Google Nexus One Android smartphone that is compatible with AT&T... and Rogers 3G networks is now available on the Google website.

You can see it on the order form here.

There’s no option to buy the phone with service at this time, but if you have the...

In a very interesting piece over at AndroidandMe website, it is clearly demonstrated the the multitouch technology that works in your Nexus One... is different to that of the Motorola Droid. To be more specific, the Droid is far superior in the way in which it handles multitouch on Android.

The video displayed after the jump shows the sam...
