Nexus S Auto Photo Delete Error Investigated by Samsung and Google

Ruh roh, one of those mysterious gremlin errors is happening in everyone's favorite smartphone with the coolest most nude version of Android 2.3 Gingerbread, the Nexus S. This particular error is reportedly happening specifically on the Nexus S 4G (aka the Sprint version of the device) and includes connectivity and random photo deletion errors. Before we continue, have a look at our review of said Nexus S 4G device and come back with full knowledge. Then hear this, as spoken by a spokesperson from big Yellow to ComputerWorld late yesterday: "We are aware of the connectivity reports being brought forward by a small number of Nexus S 4G customers. Google, Sprint and Samsung are examining these reports and though we have not yet been able to identify any specific causes, we are working to determine exactly what our customers are experiencing." Bad news bears!

Motorola XT882 headed to China as Dual-Core, Dual-Sim, Dual-Mode Superphone

Lately we have seen a few devices that were headed to China and they weren't what I'd call up to par in the specs department, but this looks to bring that to a new level. Folks in China should be ready to rejoice with this new phone from Motorola. It is strikingly similar to the Motorola Atrix in terms of design and a few specs but the real treat is that dual-sim and dual-mode under the hood.

Droid X Gingerbread update approved

Last week, we reported a rumor that a Droid X Gingerbread update could be coming May 13th after being submitted to Verizon several times for approval. The update had originally been slated for an April release, but that slipped since Verizon wanted a few changes before signing off. The word now is that Gingerbread for the Droid X has been approved and will be coming out as an OTA update as early as Friday, May 13th. So while still a rumor, it takes the next giant step out of the shadows.

Notion Ink Tablet gets Gingerbread update, does anyone care anymore?

Notion Ink has added a new chapter to their two year old odyssey of building their Adam Android tablet from scratch. Notion has confirmed an update providing Android 2.3 Gingerbread, a new browser, and even a new eBook reader client. As you well know, Notion has been blogging the process step by step, giving users an inside peek on how tablets are created. For awhile, we thought they'd disappeared. Then last month, they announced updates to their tablet were forth coming. But since Adam was launched, Notion has run into customer service and shipping issues which has caused many who were eagerly awaiting release to seek other options. So the question is ... does anyone really care?

Google Nexus One gets new Gingerbread update

Google is in the process of updating the Nexus One over the air with Gingerbread Android 2.3.4. The update doesn't have everything other 2.3.4 users will enjoy, however. Since the Nexus One has no forward facing video camera, Video Chat over Google Talk, which we reported here, is unavailable. But there's other noticeable tweaks including bug fixes for phone shut downs, WiFi connectivity, GPS accuracy, and battery life. Users can wait until the update reaches them, or they can do a manual update. Here's how ...

Android Ice Cream Sandwich Confirmed [Even More For Real This Time]

You know how all the bigtime Android iterations are named after desserts? Do you also see how the titles of these deserts have been released in alphabetical order? These Android titles go like so: Cupcake, Donut, Eclair, Froyo, Gingerbread, and Honeycomb. This last version is the first tablet-specific version of Android and should, based on what we know at the moment, be considered as being developed aside from the main Android bloodline. That said, the next version's name has been "leaked" by a Google developer by the name of Romain Guy: Ice Cream Sandwich.
