Not the only One!
Despite the singularity implied by calling your product the "One", there have actually been a bunch of gadgets with that name over the years. Thought I'd put together a list of the ones I could think of off the top of my head, please point any I've missed in the comments!

Google is planning to sell 5 Nexus devices via its Play Store.
The WSJ has gotten some information that Google may be announcing it's plan to announce 5 unlocked Nexus devices at the upcoming Google I/O event. There is no word yet on who will be making the phones but the report states they're planning to partner with a variety of OEMs to make this happen. Oh and the cherry on top, they'll be rocking the latest version of Android which at I/O will be Jelly Bean. The one thing that wasn't mentioned was which carriers this will work with but given the fact... Read more →

Android's fragmentation problem visualized
Techcrunch had an article today that pointed to a persons blog discussing the fragmentation issues within Android. It's one of the better examples I've seen discussing the issue of fragmentation among Android phones. The author went through most of the US released Android phones since 2008 and documented their OS versions. It's pretty impressive graphic and if there is one thing you can take away from it's Motorola's upgrade paths, or lake thereof. The graphic that was made to go along with it... Read more →

Extrapolating the screen size of Android mobile phones over time.
Abstract: The latest Android mobile phone under Google's flagship phone line, the Nexus family, currently has a diagonal screen size of 4.65 inches (118.1mm). This follows a trend that Google started with the HTC Dream / T-Mobile G1 -- their first Android flagship phone. Released in 2008, it had a diagonal screen size of only 3.2 inches (81.3mm). Since then, screen sizes in Google's Nexus line have grown at an average rate of 0.48 inches (12.2mm) per year.

In 2008, HTC released the... Read more →

Nexus phone naming convention
The Nexus One was the first Nexus phone that Google produced, as its name suggests. The logical successor to the One would be the Two. However, Google introduced the Nexus S, based on the Galaxy S chassis from Samsung, as its second phone. The third Nexus phone from Google is known as the Galaxy Nexus (not Nexus Prime as rumored) which again is related to the Galaxy line of phones.  One way to think of the name Nexus S is that is is the S variation of the Nexus family because it uses Galaxy S...

Slowing mobile innovation?
I don't think I'm alone if I say that, compared to 2010 with its breakneck pace of innovation in the mobile industry, 2011 has been a bit of a let down. It seems almost hard to believe now, but at the beginning of 2010, the most advanced phones on the market were the original Droid and the iPhone 3GS, and the tablet market didn't even exist yet.
Yet by the end of the year, Google had become the dominant mobile OS, Apple had launched both the iPhone 4 and the iPad, HP bought Palm, and Microsoft... Read more →

Older brand new phone or more current used phone?
I'm thinking about buying a phone off contract but I'm not sure whether I should get an older phone in brand new condition (Amazon) or a more current phone in used condition (Craigslist, Swappa). Buying a brand new phone would greatly reduce worries about defects and physical condition of the hardware but I would only be able to buy an older gen device (Nexus One vs Nexus S) to be at the same budget. Buying a used phone has its risks but then having the more current phone means it would last... Read more →

Android is starting to aggravate me.
First of all, I have to point that I LOVE Android. I love how you can customize it to your heart’s content and I love how apps can reach out to other apps without any difficulty. Before I complain, I try my best to do something about it before saying something. So please don’t assume that I’m just making these complaints rashly. 1. Fix Google Voice! There are several bugs that needs to be fixed with Google Voice and it aggravates that Google still hasn’t fixed this app after a couple... Read more →

Okay, so I'm pretty sure that my next phone will be the Nexus S or Nexus One. But now that they both run Android 2.3 Gingerbread, which one is better.
I mean I know the N1 is obviously cheaper to buy because it's older. Some say that one is better because build is better, more durable because it's HTC and/or because of the metal. Others say Nexus S because it has a few better hardware upgrades, bigger and better screen. So I'm a bit at a crossroads. Of course, because of the carrier I'm with here in Canada, they are on an AWS frequency like T-Mobile there in the U.S. And with the ATT buyout of them, there's rumours... Read more →

Has anyone been having signal issues with the Nexus One?
Lately I've been unable to receive an edge connection where I previously could, and coworkers in the area all have no problems with other devices (Motorola Cliq, HTC G2, Blackberry something, etc.). I previously had issues with my SIM card becoming unreadable and thus unable to connect to any network but it was at least 5 years old. The G2 was also having data issues, but after getting a SIM replacement it seems to have been corrected. I know that SIM cards don't last forever, but...
