Google Nexus One receiving Android 2.3.6 Update

Google has gone ahead and pressed the big green "Go" button for another update to the beloved Nexus One. According to details the Google Nexus One "superphone" as they originally called it, is now getting an OTA update to Android 2.3.6 Gingerbread. This is pure vanilla Android right here, with some Gingerbread cookies of course. Apparently this has a few bug fixes like the Voice control issue that also plagued the Nexus S.

Amazon Trade-In Beta now Live, Trade that iPhone for some Andy

It looks like Amazon is joining the likes of Best Buy, T-Mobile and others and are now offering a full trade-in program. The Trade-In Beta was explained in a little more detail today and you can see the full press release below. It looks like Amazon will be accepting things like Electronics, Books, DVD's, Games and more all for the trade-in program. I like this idea as I have plenty of old games I don't need, not to mention that iPod Touch that I never use now I have a 32GB MicroSD in my Android phone, and Google Music Beta to top that if needed.

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 ...

Breaking news here, @GoogleNexus has just confirmed that Android 2.3.4 is all set and about to start rolling out in OTA updates to the Nexus One and Nexus S for some bug fixes, but the S also is getting GTalk video and voice chat. This is totally news to us. We reported that it may be coming, but not this soon. Oh and they even mentioned that a surprise is coming also. I wonder if we have a Nexus 2 in the works.

Direct Installs for Android 2.3.3. Gingerbread for Nexus One and Nexus S discovered

Google's warning that the OTA Gingerbread update for the Nexus S and Nexus One might "take a few weeks" to reach all owners was a dash of unpleasantly cold water to the face; happily, xda-developers have dropped by with a hot towel. They've dug up the official links from Google for the Android 2.3.3 update, which means the impatient can now update their handsets without waiting for Google's schedule to notch along. Two different downloads are available, one for the Nexus One: http://android.clients.google.com/packages/ota/passion/81304b2de707.signed-passion-GRI40-from-FRG83G.81304b2d.zip ... and another for the Nexus S: http://android.clients.google.com/packages/ota/google_crespo/e0b546c442bf.signed-soju-GRI40-from-GRH78.e0b546c4.zip If the links are too slow for you, there's information on mirrors at the original forum post.

Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread Update Includes WebM Support [What is WebM?]

As you may already be well aware, the Android 2.3.3 update for Nexus S and Nexus One has indeed gone out today for the greater good of humanity. What you might NOT know is that this update includes WebM support. What is WebM? It's a relatively new media file format designed specifically for the internet. What a WebM file consists of is VP8 video codec and Vorbis audio codec compressed audio streams. Well wait, what does that mean? Let's break it down.

Nexus S and Nexus One Gingerbread 2.3.3 update going out OTA

Google has begun pushing out Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread updates to the Google Nexus S and Nexus One. According to the official Nexus Twitter account, the over-the-air updates have already started, but users should be patient since it "may take a few weeks for OTA to complete." The update will be incremental for the Nexus S, but the Nexus One's first official taste of Gingerbread. We've just checked one a Nexus One in the UK, and there's no sign of new firmware being available, so it seems we'll have to be patient (or wait for someone to offer a side-loading version of the official ROM, of course). [Thanks n900mixalot!]

Android 3.0 Honeycomb hits Nexus One in unofficial port

It'll be Thursday before the first official taste of Honeycomb hits the market - in the shape of the Android 3.0 powered Motorola XOOM - but the quest to put the tablet SDK on all manner of other devices continues with the Nexus One. Google's first Nexus phone has been married up with Honeycomb by the skilled tinkerers at xda-developers, rooted and given a quick tweak to make sure the display works in landscape and that the app drawer is functional. Unfortunately, there's a lot more broken than working right now, so you probably don't want this as your everyday OS. Phone, WiFi, the accelerometer, sound, the camera, Bluetooth and 3D acceleration aren't functional, but if you've been wondering how a tablet-centric OS will look on a 3.7-inch display, now's your chance.
