Google™: Nexus One Gingerbread update is coming soon

Android, Google Nexus One Smartphone and Android developer phone are terms which are inter-related with each other. Originally, Android Inc. developed an interesting mobile operating system called the Android. Google bought this company in the year 2005. In 2007, the mobile industry leaders and a multinational alliance of technology leaders like Google Inc., T-Mobile, HTC, Motorola and others collaborated on the development of the Android through the open handset alliance, further growing into the Android open source project. With Google spearheading the venture, it was really interesting to see how the concept grew. Google then went ahead to introduce the Nexus One.

Naturally, this Google flagship smartphone got priority over everyone else in updates of all kinds. A logical question that now arises is, with the Gingerbread OS introduced already on other phones, why is the Nexus One still not privy to the same. In the case of Apple, or Windows-based smart phones, all updates keep coming periodically, automatically to the existing devices up to the limit of the hardware capability existing within the phone.

Android is different. In the case of Apple or Windows, the users are dependent on new introductions, changes and updates on the said companies and all they need to know is how much needs to be paid. The Android Open Source Project instead has everything wide open and transparent about everything in the pipeline or ready or implemented, with all information of development and open knowhow. Here, the phone user is dependent on the manufacturer, the carrier and other factors before he gets an upgrade or an update. Android users also have the facility of many manufacturers with a wide variety of firmware at very low prices in comparison to Apple or Windows.

Probably, in the case of the Nexus One, Google wants to benefit from its new product, the Nexus S. The Nexus S has been launched with the latest OS – Gingerbread – the Android 2.3. Early January, a Tweet, also referred to Google having officially announced that Gingerbread would be coming to the Nexus One in a few weeks. Something is holding them back. Even after all these questions have been raised, Google has confirmed that Gingerbread for the Nexus One is on its way.

It is difficult to imagine why the Google or the Android team is delaying the implementation of the Gingerbread OS. The Gingerbread OS has various features, over its earlier 2.1 and Froyo updates. Better speed, better battery life, better application management, a more interesting user interface and a color scheme to add. Least but not the last, the new keyboard supporting multi-touch input and smart auto correct function, better camera management, Near Field Communication (if your hardware supports it), larger screen sizes, Internet calling – SIP based, improved camera management and file management are some of the features to look for.

The new apps integrated help better download management and even a system clipboard for cut and paste improved features. Barely has the Gingerbread been introduced, all Android users are already waiting for their new and Honeycomb OS. The application arena with the Android Open Source Project is a big eye-opener for one and all.

Google™ Nexus S coming to South Korea

The CES 2011 and the CES 2010 saw the launch of many products. One of the major players and smartphone debutants was definitely the Android-based Google Nexus One. Google and their Android open source project teams have definitely done wonders. After the Google Nexus One, Google introduced the Nexus S. The Nexus series of phones are now heading towards the Honeycomb OS. As we all know, Android open source project was launched by the collaboration of various industry leaders, technology leaders, product manufacturers and service providers. The Android OS and its applications are now available for many smart phones, tablets, gaming devices, TVs and other products.

Samsung of South Korea, one of the players taking the lead in Android-based smartphones and tablets, has definitely made a mark for themselves in this technology scenario. Google launched the Nexus One, which was manufactured by HTC. The Nexus One chapter was closed with Google introducing the Nexus S on the Gingerbread OS – Android 2.3. While Google introduced the Gingerbread OS on the Nexus S with a wide range of features added over the Froyo OS, Google is yet to release updates to the Nexus One users worldwide. Samsung Galaxy S did wonders, capturing a large part of the market of Android-based smartphones.

While Google has been slowly upgrading the Nexus One with the Gingerbread OS, Google is taking Samsung head-on by introducing the Nexus S in South Korea. One would have expected Google after their success in the US markets, to move to Canada, Europe and other developed areas, but Google is introducing the Nexus S in Italy and South Korea. Google will be launching the Nexus S through SK Telecom who, by the way are already the carriers for Samsung Galaxy S. It is heard that SKT is in the final stages of testing the Google Nexus S on their network.

The Nexus S sports a 4-inch super AMOLED capacitive touch screen, a 1GHz Hummingbird processor, 16 GB on board memory, Wi-Fi connectivity, HSPA, 5 mega-pixel camera, a micro SB memory card slot as also a wide range of Android sensors. The Nexus S also comes with a front facing VGA camera for video chat, Bluetooth 2.1 plus EDR and A-GPS. The 1500 mAh lithium Ion battery and 3G are features to look out. The curved super AMOLED display is again one of the firsts worldwide, besides the graphics co-processor.

A refined multitasking option allows the user to access the recent apps list that is displayed in the systems bar. This would enable the user to see the tasks in progress or that are in use currently and also they would be able to jump to a totally different application context. With Android 3.0, you can enjoy a face to face chat with the users of Google Talk and that too with a 3D effect in Google Maps 5.0.

Through a tablet optimized Gmail, the users can stay connected with the mails that they receive even while travelling. The redesigned UI is beaming with a new palette that elaborates categories, a more accurate rendition of layouts to depict how the new layout will be displayed on the devices. There are improvements in zoom function as well. With an updated set of standard applications the Android 3.0 also has programs designed for large-screen devices. There are other features that would serve as a boon for the developers like backing for device administration policies that would cover encrypted storage and password expiration. The developers also have tools for making use of Renderscript graphics engine.

Samsung® Nexus S with Android™

Suddenly out of the blue, barely after the Android 2.3 Gingerbread and 3.0 Honeycomb, there is news on the Nexus S which is a Google branded phone which is a  2.4 Android version rumored and presented off the cuff. The question is whether it is really a new version of Android or is it an iteration of Gingerbread which Google wanted to introduce but could release in the 2.2 version. Samsung is getting a new model cleared from the FCC, with specifications that could release the new version Android 2.4.

The FCC in the US takes time. So, is Samsung toying around with the idea of introducing it in the Europe under the ageis of T-Mobile along with HSPA? The Best Boyz video, from Germany gives you a peek into what may be the next engineering thing. The profile of the Samsung Nexus S, having passed the Wi –  Fi alliance certification and the Bluetooth SIG certification, credence can be attached to the Best Boyz video rumor of the Android 2.4 platform for the Nexus S.

Since Samsung is due to release their hardware version shortly, the question is whether the Android 2.4 will become a reality as there is hardly any time left for development. Taking a look at the CyanogenMod benchmark, the Nexus S, is clocking sweet results. Android 2.2 has almost become the majority version of the OS considering a number of products using it as a base just as Android 2.3 gets introduced. The 2.3 updates, find limited utilization as products with capabilities and being in existence in this platform are relatively few. In contrast, Samsung Nexus S, with Android 2.3 and / or with Android 2.4 needs superfast movement so that developers can target their new application developments on the latest version instead of calling for backward compatibility. The Samsung Nexus S has a very sleek structure and a powerful Super Amoled screen, presenting high contrast icon displays besides technological excellence in frot glass curvature design bringing utility in glare resistant views and interesting perspective. The front facing and rear-facing cameras bring in another advancement in perspective of new apps being developed across the board.

The multi-touch input, on screen improvements, track pads are typical Android upgrades making the internet experience a trendy affair. Multi-media via Flash and streaming are strengths that one can look forward to.

HTC® Flyer 7-inch Tablet runs Android™ GingerBread 2.4

HTC Flyer is a tablet PC featuring the Android 2.4 GingerBread operating system. HTC was given the Device Manufacturer of the Year award at the MWC 2011. The HTC Flyer seven-inch tablet has several interesting features.

HTC Flyer Tablet

There has also been a lot of discussions by Google, Android Forums and Techies worldwide, on the Android 3.0 Honeycomb OS version being optimized especially for tablets with large screens. The Gingerbread and Froyo operating systems are really not designed for large screens. Is HTC’s decision to go with Android 2.4, a logical decision over the available Honeycomb Android 3.0 OS for their tablets. The Android 2.4 was introduced, replacing the Android 2.3, but keeping the Gingerbread flavor and probably even name. In fact, ViewSonic also plans to introduce a product, a tablet, a large screen unit, around the Android 2.4. In fact, the Android 2.4 features very good performance on Single Core devices, with even Honeycomb Apps, which have been created principally for many Dual Core devices and tablets. In fact, an interesting development is Honeycomb Apps availability for smartphones.

With HTC’s innovative strength, and hybridization capabilities, it is absolutely certain that the HTC Flyer will make waves in the tablet market. With the Stylus, the magic pen, allowing you to paint, draw, retouch pictures and even write in your own handwriting, the HTC Flyer is likely to become popular. The HTC Watch On Demand viewing and the SRS Virtual Sound will definitely make news with blockbuster movies. It has the E-book feature and offers high speed access for YouTube or search engines such as Google. High fidelity sound with the SRS WOW and the 720 pixel HD camcorder app will offer an excellent multimedia experience. The HTC Flyer definitely brings value for money.
