Seems like you can't turn around these days without bumping into some rumor about a new Nexus phone.  Crazy rumors sometimes turn out to be true, but more often than not they are just idle wishing that got out of hand (or successful troll being successful).  I'm convinced the latest two are the...

Rumors are always just rumors, but a current one flying around the Internet has an unnamed HTC sales manager outing a 4.3-inch successor to the HTC Sensation, with NFC capabilities, to hit in the third quarter of 2011.  Yes, a new phone will be better than an old phone -- shocker -- even though...

Hands-on with the Sprint Nexus S 4G

One of these phones is the Sprint Nexus S 4G. And the other, well, is just a plain old' Nexus S, no Sprint, no 4G. And to be honest, we've forgotten which is which. OK, we haven't forgotten. The third-party launcher and notifications on the phone on the left should give it away. Point is, aside...

Nexus S Hands-on Photo Gallery; Update: Video

  Happy Nexus S day, gents and ladies. We high-tailed it over to our local Best Buy Mobile and picked one up to put it through its paces.  The screen is curved, yes, but not enough to elicit wows from anybody. The overall feel is very Galaxy - which is to say lighter than you might expect but also...

New Flash for Android video runs great, possibly shows Android 2.2 homescreen

  We know Adobe is giving its employees Android phones in a form of "dogfooding" for Flash on mobile. We know that Flash is coming in Android 2.2 Froyo.

Google looking for "product marketing manager" for Android, Nexus One

  Would you look at that! Google is getting serious about selling the Nexus One and marketing the Android platform, too. Apparently the folks over at Mountain View have decided not to take the reported less-than-stellar sales (and we're still not buying that, by the way) lying down. A recent...

Nexus One’s display not all it's cracked up to be?
