More Nexus One images and videos continue to hit the blogosphere. This time around we have the Nexus One buddying up with the HTC Hero and sitting pretty next to an iPhone. In the images, you can really see the large screen and the smooth curves of the Nexus One. It is slightly longer and a little more narrow than the iPhone and it makes the Hero look like its small-screened, boxy cousin. In addition to the pictures, we have a five minute walk though which details the Android 2.1 interface. Sweet! The video and full-size images are after the…

DROID owners not satisfied with OS 2.0.1 should keep an eye on the work of some hackers over at Sholes.info. According to their latest post, a few daring¬†members¬†have installed Android 2.1 ripped from the Nexus One onto their DROID. Not quite ready for¬†prime time, the image used for the installation apparently does¬†not¬†properly preserve¬†file¬†system permissions which causes some¬†problems with the phone. Other reported issues include problems¬†with the¬†keyboard¬†backlighting, unusual behavior of the¬†landscape¬†app drawer, and¬†general¬†inconsistent behaviors¬†where¬†the homescreens stop swiping and apps stop launching. Quite wisely, interested parties are admonished to wait for an improved image to be released before diving in. While you…

These Google Nexus One rumors are really picking up a full head of steam.¬† We’re all excited for something new, something special.¬† But we also need to keep our wits about us and look at what’s going on now as compared with the past. For one, we’ve heard many, many “Google Phone” rumors over the past few years, and none have come to result in anything but a regular phone sold by carriers in the end. And while the Wall Street Journal and others talk of Google selling this Nexus One “direct to consumers”, it should be kept in mind…

We told you on Saturday that the rumors about the Google phone would come fast and furious and this weekend did not disappoint. To recap, we started off Friday night with the rumor that the Google phone was real and in the hands of Google employees. This revelation was partially substantiated by Google in a blog post on Saturday that explained that the California-based company was indeed dogfooding a new Android phone. The identity of the phone as the Google phone or merely a Google Experience phone was still shrouded in mystery and the subject of heated debate. The debate…

An HTC handset with FCC ID NM8PB99100 and¬†the¬†model¬†name “NEXUSONE” has made its way though the revealing process of FCC approval. The documents posted by the FCC divulge the presence of¬†cellular¬†radios supporting quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE and UMTS/HSUPA (2Mbps up and 7.2Mbps down)¬†on 850/1700/1900 frequencies. Savvy readers will¬†immediately¬†recognize that 1700MHz is used for T-Mobile’s 3G network and that 850/1900MHz are the bands used for AT&T’s special¬†flavor of 3G. Excellent news for consumers in the US as an unlocked Nexus One could be used on either T-Mobile’s or AT&T’s high speed data network. Anyone on the fence about the Nexus One, ready to take…

The images also show off some of the new features of Android 2.1 including a new curved launcher wheel, extended…

Spotted at Twitter is supposedly the first image of the now infamous Google phone. This handset is a mirror of the HTC Passion image that was leaked back in October. The only thing missing is the HTC logo on the top bezel, an¬†omission¬†that is¬†consistent¬†with this being a Google-branded phone. Take this one with a pinch of salt as the purported picture taker Corey O’Brien has no apparent ties to Google. Nonetheless, the faucet has been turned on and we expect to see more images and additional information soon. The leaked images of both the Passion and the Google phone are…
