Nexus S shows up in white

Posted in Mobile Phones by Conner Flynn on January 25th, 2011

The Nexus S has shown up with a new white coat, but it’s only on the back, leaving the front end the same old black. Hey, it may not be completely white, but at least it stands out from the norm. Aside from this variation, a “Silver Black” Nexus S was seen recently in European retailers’ listings.

That may be this one. We aren’t sure. It depends on how loose they interpret “silver.” No word yet on when or where this Nexus S will be on sale, but hopefully we will know soon.

Thing is, as you might expect, none of the methods are easy, but that just means that if you do this you will be among the select few. If you want to try your hand at it, check it out here.

Posted in Tablet PC by Conner Flynn on January 2nd, 2011

Earlier today Vizio confirmed many of the details of its Rose Bowl tablet teaser. The company is getting into mobile devices and will use Android for the Via Tablet, an eight-incher with a front camera, three speakers and Wi-Fi for Internet access. There will also be a matching Via Phone which sports a four-inch display, a back five-megapixel camera and its own front camera.

We still don’t have many hardware details, but the company promised a ‘blessed’ version of Android with support for the Market. The devices won’t ship until sometime this summer, so the tablet will likely use Honeycomb (Android 2.4) or later. One carrier has been lined already but is unidentified.

Posted in HTC by Conner Flynn on December 30th, 2010

HTC’s HD2 Windows Mobile phone has been a popular device for Android ports and now the Dark Forces Team’s MAGLDR 1.09 might make things easier for Android fans. The program lets Android builds be flashed directly to the NAND ROM, which is where the stock Windows Mobile build normally resides.

Current Android ports require a WinCE-based bootloader to run. MAGLDR should be released to the public in just a few days time and Windows Phone 7 should be able to be ported to the HD2 using this tool as well.
