Oh, and need a Q1 headset? They're (shameless plug ahead) available in the Android Central Store for $89.95.

New Firefox build looks much better

9

Earlier this week we showed you a very early build of Firefox for Android, and those who may have tried to install it noticed that the file was extremely large in size. And slow. As we all know, this was nowhere near to be debuted as an alpha, let alone a beta, but people decided to give it a shot anyways. It appears as though they have continued their efforts, and continued to work towards improving it, and the update looks a bit more on the usable side. Unfortunately at this time, they are still not ready to release nightly builds at this time, but they appear to be more keen on the idea that it will be happening soon. Be sure to check out the another video of this running on a Nexus One after the jump, and stay tuned for further updates on the development of Firefox for Android. [via Vlad Blog]

Telus gets paid apps in Android Market; Canadians rejoice

6

 

For reasons we'll never know, it has taken a very long time for Canadian Android users to gain access to paid apps in Android Market. Don't our friendly neighbors to the north have what we have? Well, Android users on Rogers got access to paid apps just a few weeks ago but it still left other Canadian Android users behind. Specifically, Telus users with their lustworthy Milestone and HTC Hero. Luckily, Telus has finally activated the switch for their customers and Telus Android users will get access to paid apps. Hooray! Aboot! Zed! [electronista]

Win Phil's Google Nexus One [Contest]

36

That's right, we're giving away my original Nexus One. It's in near-perfect condition and has served me well throughout my journeys for Android Central, but it's time to send it on to a better home. And that's where you guys come in. Here are the details:

  • Film yourself explaining why you should win my Nexus One. Extra credit for creativity and originality, agility, dexterity, use of props, nudity, etc. (OK, maybe no nudity. Let's keep this PG-13 at most.)
  • Upload it to YouTube, and e-mail me the link at phil at androidcentral dot com.
  • We'll accept submissions through April 30, then present them for you, our loyal subjects, for judging.

This is the T-Mobile 3G version of the Nexus One and served as my daily driver for quite some time. So it's not brand new, but it's in great shape, and I've got all the original packaging. It's rooted, and we'll flash whatever ROM -- custom or otherwise -- you want.

Good luck everybody!

HTC Desire, Legend rooted already

6

Well, that didn't take long. Get the right phones into the right hands, and rooting and custom ROMs are bound to occur. Such is the case with the HTC Desire and Legend, which Paul from MoDaCo has already cracked open. Look for more good stuff to pour out of this one. [MoDaCo via Twitter]

Starred items now in mobile search, too

0

 Earlier this month Google released a great feature - marking your favorite search results with a star. Now Google has announced it is extending this feature to also work with their mobile site. If you're running an Android, webOS, or Apple device and logged into Google, any result you star on your computer or your phone will appear at the top of the results. Something so simple sure can make a big difference. I can think of a lot of ways this could come in handy, especially when combined with Google's location aware services. Nice work, Google, stuff like this is why we love ya.

HTC Incredible on its way to Verizon's warehouse?

38

Well, what have we here? It appears as though someone has captured an image showing that the HTC Incredible has been ordered by Verizon and the shipments are on their way to the warehouse locations. Over at Android Forums someone with Verizon insight appears say that these 156,709 units are actually sitting in the warehouse, just unable to be sold at this point. This information falls in line with the two-week shipping timeframe we previously heard, now it's just a matter of time until these show up in the stores. [Android Forums via Engadget]
