Since roughly January of 2010, I have been loyal to the Nexus brand. The totally unlocked, off-contract, controlled by Google Nexus brand. I’ve owned every Nexus device released so far, with the exception of the Nexus 7. And I’ve spent very little time with anything else as a personal device. I already know ... Read More »
The Nexus name has come under some serious fire lately; and I can’t deny playing my part in that.

Most people who own a Nexus One assumed they would have Android 2.3 running on their phone by now. Google employees began tweeting back in December that an over-the-air(OTA) update should arrive in the coming weeks and the official @GoogleNexus account also tweeted that message as recent as January 4th.

Do smartphone benchmarks even matter? A lot of people would say “Nope” and I would agree with some, but we still like to run them every time a new version of Android is released or when a new processor hits the market. This last week Google launched the Nexus S with Android 2.3, ... Read More »
Several of us expected the Nexus One would receive an update to Android 2.3 by now, but Google is still working on the latest release and just tweeted that it should be available “in the coming weeks”. If you are really impatient several cooked Gingerbread ROMS are available, but most are ... Read More »
