Once upon a time, back when cavemen ruled the Earth and I was in college, the "in" thing to do (if you were a nerd, anyway), was to port Doom to various Windows mobile phones, PDAs, G3/G4-era Macs, graphing calculators, and other assorted devices with limited functionality and horsepower. Now, some 13 years later, porting Doom has apparently become too easy. Two separate Android developers have raised the ante and released functional ports of Quake II and III for the Motorola Droid. Perhaps a screen shot dropped on a phone render—but source code is available and functional. That's quite a feat, considering the technological improvements that occurred between Doom's release...

Google's Nexus One made waves in the smartphone industry. Big waves. Everyone knew that the phone was constructed by HTC but labeled by Google, and now it looks like HTC has revealed their own version of the Nexus One: the Desire.Launched at Mobile World Congress, this ultra-sleek smartphone is basically a modified Nexus One, complete with a sensor key instead of a trackball and HTC's own "Sense" overlay atop Android 2.1. Most of the specifications remain in tact, as this one features a 3.7" AMOLED WVGA display, Flash 10.1 support, a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, a rear camera with flash and a Home, Menu, Back and Search hard key below the screen.The biggest reason to choose this over Google's Nexus...

Take a step back and inhale. Nexus One owners have just become the first group of Android users to get a taste of native multi-touch here in the United States, and it has definitely been a long time coming. Android has proven itself as one of the most capable mobile operating systems on the market, but the lack of multi-touch really hindered its ability to go toe-to-toe with webOS and iPhone OS.Google announced this week that Nexus One users will begin to receive an over-the-air software update on their phones, and while it's still unclear when other Android 2.0+ phones will receive the same update, early impressions from existing Nexus One owners are very positive. Google Maps and the web browser... Read more...
Google's HTC Nexus One, while available unlocked (always), but subsidized by T-Mobile with a two-year contract. Hopefully anyone who bought the Nexus One with the intent of using it with an AT&T SIM read the fine print and realized that it wasn't compatible with 3G on AT&T's network. That may be changing, though.Versions of the HTC Nexus One for Verizon and Vodafone have been listed as coming on Google's website, but if you're going to have the darn thing unlocked and its a GSM device, it's a pain that AT&T users can't have 3G support on it. However, a recent FCC approval seems to point to an AT&T 3G compatible version of the Nexus One.The problem, of course, is that to get 3G... Read more...
One of the cool features of the Nexus One, AKA the Google Phone, is built-in voice recognition. We're not talking about Voice Commands, like "call so-and-so," we're talking about being able to use voice input for virtually anything (like SMS). Of course, while Google may no longer be willing to censor search results in China, voice input on the Nexus One is a different matter.Reuters discovered that if, for example, you wanted to SMS the sentence "Where the $%^# are you?" to your friend, who may be running late, the word "$%^# " (which we're obviously censoring ourselves) will be instead replaced by #### (the correct number of #s for the word, assuming the Nexus One recognized the word properly)....

The night before the first day of CES is typically filled with numerous parties and pre-show expos loaded with hot new products and technologies. We attended one such event last night, Digital Experience, where a number of major players were peddling their wares. While at the event, we got to see a real-live NVIDIA Fermi-based graphics card installed in a Maingear demo system, a handful of slick new notebooks, netbooks, and smartbooks from Lenovo, and even played with a Nexus One--among other things.

We've heard a fair amount about the Google-branded Android phone codenamed the Nexus One in recent months. Now, Google has officially taken the covers off of the device and given us some hard-core specs. For starters, the Nexus One is available for $179 if you're willing to commit to a two-year service contract with T-Mobile. If you'd rather have an unlocked version, it'll cost you $529. Looking down the road, Verizon Wireless in the U.S. and Vodafone in Europe will begin offering subsidies on the Nexus One this spring. In terms of specifications, many of the rumors were right on the money. The Nexus One will sport a 3.7-inch AMOLED display, 1GHz Snapdragon processor, compass, GPS, accelerometer,... Read more...
After Google announced plans to hold a press event next month regarding its Android mobile phone operating system, some are wondering if the event could be tied to the Internet search giant's plans to release its own smartphone. The Google-branded smartphone has become known as the Nexus One. Rumors have suggested the phone will be launched on January 5, the same day as the aforementioned press event. The Nexus One is being tested internally by Google employees. Reportedly, the phone will be sold directly to consumers as a contract-free device, though a subsidized version may also be available through carriers. Although Android's share of the US smartphone market is relatively small in comparison... Read more...
According to a source familiar with the matter, Google is planning to offer two versions of a rumored self-branded cell phone. One version will be available directly through Google as an unlocked device. The other will come with a service contract through T-Mobile USA. The phone, which is manufactured by HTC, could be available directly through the Google website as early as January 5 according to the source. Although few details about the phone are actually available, a number of code names have been thrown around including HTC Passion, Dream, or Nexus One. Google hasn't said much about the phone, but did confirm via a blog post that it was testing a new mobile device with its employees. The... Read more...
Wow, talk about reviving something from the dead. Years back, when Google was just beginning their quest to dominate the world in every imaginable aspect, rumors were swirling about a "Googlephone" that no one could prove was actually real. Amazingly, it seems that such a device may have actually been talked about back in the day, as some sort of Googlephone actually has shown up this weekend. If you'll remember back, those rumors all but died when the HTC-built G1 came out. People simply assumed that the "Googlephone" was nothing more than another word for an Android-based phone, but instead of having just one, Android would be an OS that could be used on many devices.Now, multiple outlets are...
