Tagged: Nexus S
Engadget was tipped anonymously on several new phones including an EVO View, Nexus S 4G, and EVO 3D - now we've got some extra clues that might just thread the needle.
Nexus S and its NFC capabilities many idea's came to mind. The amount of possibilities this technology can open is huge. A developer by the name of Eric Butler soon realized he could develop something easily that could read and hack public transit fare systems. Sounds illegal i know. This is just one of many many possibilities that Near Field Communications can provide.
[brand new unboxing and hands-on post] to a [smooth guide] on some of the new amazing games you'll be able to run with your super powerful Tegra 2 processor (inside the tablet, of course.) This is because we've got a Motorola XOOM Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablet sitting here right in front of us. The flood will continue here, but you'll soon be seeing the same thing happening around the web. Why? Because this year's Game Developers Conference has been gifted with not only Nexus S phones, not only Google Chrome OS-powered CR-48 laptops, but brand new XOOM tablets as well!
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.
