Samsung-Google at CTIA

Samsung and Google appear poised for some possible Ice Cream Sandwich at CTIA

Allow us a little inside baseball here. We normally don't post every event we're invited to at the usual trade shows. We'll be there, and you know we'll be there. But this one's a little different. Behold the invitation to the Samsung Mobile Unpacked 2011 "Google Episode" at CTIA in San Diego. So...

Android 2.3.6 rolling out to some Nexus S owners - Fixes voice search, breaks tethering

Some Samsung Nexus S owners are seeing Android 2.3.6 roll out to their devices. We say some, because not all devices and not all carriers appear to be supported as of yet, though Google states the update will be rolled out over time and in some cases -- depend on carrier approval. Sprint has an...

The Droid Prime -- Just as Uncle Jerry predicted?

Who needs anonymous sources when you've got a witch like Jerry Hildenbrand? Here, in his own words, from last week's Android Central Podcast, is Jerry predicting a Nexus-caliber smartphone with Droid branding. Or, maybe Jerry and those anonymous sources are all wrong.
Nexus Droid Prime

How might a Droid Prime affect the future of Android's Nexus line?

Perusers of our Rumored Devices Forum were the first to learn weeks ago that the Nexus Prime is (a) coming to Verizon and (b) we should expect it in October. But what if it's a Droid-branded device? BGR brings that bit of unofficial info this morning, adding that it'll be the SCH-i515, and it's an...

Motorola won't have exclusive on Nexus devices, Andy Rubin says

So what does Google's acquisition of Motorola for $12.5 billion mean for Android's Nexus program? (For those new to the platform, that's Google's yearly "Pure Google" phone -- basically a developer-level phone that's also refined enough for consumer purchase.) Will the next Nexus be from Motorola?...

Poll: Would you buy a Nexus S this far into the year?

Asked this on Twitter earlier today, and let's put it to you folks: We're more than halfway through the year, and chances are we'll see a new Nexus device -- whatever it may be -- by the end of the year, if Google keeps up with previous schedules. (Though we have no assurances that it will.) So...

These Nexus rumors sound fishy - should you take the bait?

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...

HTC bringing a Sensation successor with NFC in Q3 2011?

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...
