updated his latest Nexus One beta ROM to include a new chunk of code that should free up more memory in the Android 2.1 smartphone. The ROM - which you can download here - uses Google code which opens up access to the second EBI memory bank on the Nexus One. Of course, any modification to the standard ROM could do unpleasant things to your Nexus One if you don't install it properly, so attempt the install at your own risk. And then let us know how you get on in the comments! [via Twitter]

released by Akazawa (think Japanese hacker whizzes), and has a name derived from the English word “Plain”. But this little android is anything but plain, as it’s a miniature bipedal robot that can be controlled via your Android handset.
claimed today that they will not obstruct Google’s Android mobile operating system and will not impose limits on its usage by Chinese phone companies as long as it complies with Chinese regulatory laws. This is a response to a question posed whether the Android platform would be affected by the dispute between China and Google.
another leaked image of the HTC Bravo, and happily that's just what's arrived from Poland. It's not entirely clear how it happened, but HTC apparently showed off a Bravo and a Legend there. As we knew before, the Bravo has a 3.7-inch WVGA AMOLED touchscreen, Snapdragon 1GHz processor, 5-megapixel camera with 720p HD video recording, and HTC's Sense interface. In fact it's basically the HTC-branded version of the Nexus One, though you do get an optical trackpad rather than a trackball. Unfortunately, they didn't let the tipster grab a photo of the Legend, though he did describe it. Apparently it's smaller than the Hero (which it's tipped to replace), has a full aluminum body and an AMOLED display (believed to be running at 800 x 480, though that's not confirmed), together with a 5-megapixel camera with flash. It's expected to launch in March 2010. [via Android.com.pl]
latest version for Android - released especially to add the Google Nexus One to the fold - caused instabilities for Google Voice users, the company have stepped up and told Android Community that they're currently working on a fix. Unfortunately there's no timescale for that fix, with Truphone only telling us that it remains "a very high priority" for the company. Users have reported Google Voice crashing, or their Nexus One handsets running sluggishly, when the Truphone app is also active; these issues disappear when it's uninstalled.
