Android Customization Shown Off on Video

When Android launched, people all over the place commented on how ugly the general User Interface was. And, truth be told, as more and more companies released their own UI customizations, it seemed to make matters even worse for the vanilla experience. Even today, many people believe that the general look and feel of Android is ugly. But, let's also look at the fact that customization exists. Don't like the way your weather widget looks? There's an option for that. And the list goes on and on -- just like this video shows.

New Froyo Build Leaks Out For Nexus One

It appears that Google has been working on yet another update for 2.2, and the open source community has gotten their hands on it. In the build is said to be more speed improvements, better Wi-Fi performance, and bug fixes. Build number FRG33 also has a newer version of the installed radio.

Nexus One sells out as HTC struggle to find AMOLED panels

Google's general sales of the Nexus One via their US webstore may not have set the world alight - though they were apparently enough to satisfy CEO Eric Schmidt - but it seems its appeal as a developer device is stronger.  The company has confirmed that the Nexus One is currently out-of-stock through its developer portal, with both Google and HTC having burned through their supplies of the smartphone. Google is blaming a "worldwide AMOLED shortage" for HTC's inability to produce Nexus One handsets quickly enough, but says that "Everyone appreciates that it’s important to the platform to get phones in the hands of developers, so we’re working hard on re-stocking the shelves."  No public timeline for that to happen, however.

Adobe Flash Player 10.1 Finalized for Nexus One

Adobe, at the Flash Summit in San Francisco today, officially announced that Flash Player 10.1 for the Nexus One has lost that whole Beta tag, and is now officially, official. What's even better, though, is that if you have a Nexus One, you can find your wait into the Android Market, seek out Flash Player 10.1 with just a quick search query, and get to downloading right now. That is, if you haven't already.

Google’s Nexus One Lives on as Developer Device

When Google announced that their online phone store was going to the wayside, everyone's immediate thought wasn't about the store itself, but more about the device it was selling: the Nexus One. We had always heard Google say that they would be selling the device outside of their store, and when the store closed its doors they again said that carriers around the world would be selling the stock Android device. While that panned out, it didn't show up in as many places as people would like (like at T-Mobile USA). But, if you're still interested in buying it, you can, right from Google.

Nexus One Won’t be Sold in T-Mobile Stores

Pretty much, the title says it all. When Google's Phone Store went down, there was confirmation from the house that built Android that the Nexus One, in effect, wouldn't be going down with it. In fact, the handset would still be sold courtesy of wireless carriers around the globe, like Vodafone. But, thanks to a new document, it looks like T-Mobile (you know, the wireless carrier in the States that supports the Nexus One) won't be included in that list.

Nexus One for Vodafone to Get Android 2.2 Next Week

If you bought the Nexus One on Vodafone, you got Android 2.1. No surprise there, considering it was the phone to launch the mobile OS into the world. But, with that being said, everyone who owns a Nexus One has either been waiting patiently to get their official upgrade to Froyo (which was released by Google a little while ago), especially those on carriers. Getting updates from your wireless carrier can be a bit of a pain, as all Motorola Droid owners know, but Vodafone is hoping to calm of their wireless customers down here next week.

Nexus One Now Faces its Last Shipment

Earlier in the year, Google announced that their online phone store, the Phone Store, was going to go away. And, while everyone probably assumed that that was going to happen from day one, it was still a sad day. Especially considering the Nexus One is still nowhere to be found in retail stores (at least, not in the States). And, while that's still being spoken about in regards to its changing status, right now it's not fixed. But, that's not stopping the changing times. Because, well, they-are-a-changin'.

Nexus One gets Ubuntu install [Video]

The Nexus One may be the first to get new releases of Android 2.x, but it's also one of the first to get a usable install of Ubuntu.  NexusOneHacks have a massively comprehensive tutorial showing how to get the usually desktop-bound OS onto the 1GHz smartphone. Usefully, the Ubuntu install doesn't wipe the original Android OS, but lives alongside it: the Ubuntu terminal runs in the background, while the Ubuntu X11 GUI runs as an app under Android's VNC client.  If you're currently asking "why would I want to do this?" then you should probably stick to what's on offer in the Android Market, but if you've ever wanted a portable Ubuntu test server then here's your chance.  A tutorial suited to the HTC EVO 4G is also promised.
