• Google Nexus 5 specs get leaked together with a rumored official phone image

    Posted on March 18th, 2013 David Brooks | 24 comments

    Just very recently, an official image rumored to be about the next generation of Google’s Nexus, the Nexus 5, has been leaked online, together with some detailed phone specs. The LG Nexus 4 no doubt has been a success in the existing smartphone market with its superb features and performance. But compared to the features and specs leaked online about the Nexus 5, which reportedly include specs that are almost too good to be true, we could imagine an even bigger sucess of Nexus 5. Of course, the leaked specs of Google’s next Nexus phone by LG might also be just fantasy, for it might be only rumors to attract eyes away from Galaxy S IV, which was just officially released in less than 48 hours before.

    Anyway, no matter what the situation might be, let’s take a look at the leaked information of LG Nexus 5 to get some first impression. As reported, Android and Me claims to have received an unverified tip that Google plans to release a Nexus 5 phone around October of this year and is currently evaluating prototypes from multiple manufacturers, including one from LG code-named “Megalodon“.

    LG Nexus 5

    Here’s a list of rumored specs of the Nexus 5 (Megalodon):

    * 5.2″ 1920×1080 OLED Display

    * 2.3 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800

    * 3GB RAM

    * 16MP rear camera by OmniVision capable of recording 4k video

    * 2.1MP front camera capable of recording 1080p video

    * 3300 mAh Lithium Polymer battery

    * Front stereo speakers

    * Qualcomm RF360 (LTE 150 Mbps & HSPA+)

    It’s also rumored to come in the standard 16/32/64GB storage options and feature some sort of gesture-based controls. There’s an awful lot about this that seems suspect or too good to be true, just like the 16MP camera, but there’s nothing wrong with setting expectations high if we ever want to see the next revolutionary device.

    So, what indeed the smartphone would be, stay tuned and we would bring more for you.

  • Google Released Nexus 10 with Retina-alike Display and Multiple Users Support

    Posted on October 31st, 2012 David Brooks | 1,262 comments

    Google has officially released the latest Samsung Nexus 10 tablet running on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean OS. The Nexus 10 configures with a 10″ Tre RGB Real Stripe PLS screen display with up to 2560×1600 pixels screen resolution, which means it reaches up to 300ppi. It is said that the screen could produce quite sharp image, excellent color saturation and provide wide angle for view. The overall performance of the screen display is no inferior to Retina display of the new iPad. Without any doubt, such wonderful screen would produce amazing visual experience to watch HD movies on Samsung Nexus 10.

    Samsung Nexus 10

    Nexus 10 sports a great 10-inch WQXGA 2560 x 1600 resolution Corning(R) Gorilla(R) Glass 2 display with 16:10 aspect ratio and 330ppi. It is powered by a dual-core Cortex A15-based 1.7GHz Samsung Exynos 5250 processor with 2GB of RAM, NFC, dual speakers on the front, Bluetooth 4.0 and WiFi 802.11 b/g/n (MIMO+HT40). It features dual-camera: a 5-megapixel camera on the back, and 1.9-megapixel on the front for taking pictures, video calling etc. The 9000mAh battery promises 9 hours of HD video playback and around 500 hours of standby time. Other common features include: microphone, accelerometer, compass, ambient light, gyroscope, barometer and GPS.

    Nexus 10 also comes with newly announced Android 4.2 Jelly Bean OS. The main difference of Android 4.2 and its previous versions lies in home page. It adopts totally different layout from Nexus 7, thus there’s no possibility of disorder like that in Honeycomb and ICS. Another major change is that it brings multi-user account support like in Surface RT (Windows RT) to Android tablets. Users could login in with their own Google accounts and then customize individual home page, apps, etc.

    Nexus 10

    Nexus 10 comes in two flavors: 16GB and 32GB versions. The 16GB version will set you back $399 while the 32GB is set at $499. This is full $100 less than the competing tablet, the new iPad, in the 10-inch tablet bracket.

    Nexus 10 will be available on 13th November 2012 directly from the online Google Play Stores in US, Canada, UK, France, Germany, Spain and Australia.

  • Google Officially Released Nexus 4 Smartphone, Nexus 10 Tablet and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean

    Posted on October 31st, 2012 David Brooks | 35 comments

    Right at the same time while Microsoft launched its Windows Phone 8 on October 29th, Google quietly released multiple long rumored Nexus devices and the brand new Android 4.2 Jelly Bean OS. The new Nexus devices include LG Nexus 4 smartphone, Nexus 10 tablet and new Nexus 7 with cellular data network connection support. These wonderful devices and the new OS should have been released on the Android release event, but which has been canceled by the unwelcome hurricane Sandy. Quite surprisingly, rumors about the features of the new Nexus devices nearly all strike the points. Let’s see what these devices come with below:

    Google Nexus

    LG’s Nexus 4

    The Nexus 4 has a 4.7-in., 1,280-by-768-pixel resolution display, a quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor from Qualcomm, 2 gigabytes of RAM, an 8-megapixel rear camera, a 1.3-megapixel front camera and either 8 or 16 gigabytes of storage. It also has NFC, a micro USB port and micro HDMI output. For bells and whistles, Google is touting built-in wireless charging (though you’ll need to supply your own compatible charging mat) and a Photo Sphere feature that can shoot 360-degree panorama photos.

    As for the price, LG Nexus 4 is set to be $299 for the 8-GB version and $349 for the 16-GB version. Also, in the U.S., the unlocked version will work only with AT&T or T-Mobile, but the latter carrier will sell a subsidized Nexus 4 for $200 with a two-year contract. The phone launches on Nov. 13 in Britain, USA, Australia, France, German, Spain and Canada.

    Asus Nexus 7

    The new Nexus 7 is the same as the old one, with a 7-in., 1,280-by-800 resolution display, a quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 processor, 1 GB of RAM, a 1.2-megapixel front-facing webcam and a micro USB port. It weighs 0.7 lb., measures 0.4 in. thick and gets about 9.5 hours of battery life on a charge. Google and Asus simply doubled the storage on the Nexus 7, to 16 GB for the $199 version and 32 GB for the $249 version, and added a 3G option for $299 with 32 GB of storage. (It’ll work with AT&T and T-Mobile in the U.S.) The much needed storage boost helps bring the Nexus 7 in line with other cheap tablets.

    Samsung Nexus 10

    This is Google’s first Nexus tablet to compete directly with Apple‘s iPad, and it offers a Retina-beating 10.1-in., 2,560-by-1,600 resolution display as its claim to fame. Other specs include a dual-core A15 processor, 2 GB of RAM, a 5-megapixel rear camera, a 1.9-megapixel front camera, micro USB, micro HDMI and NFC. The tablet also supports multiple user sign-ins, with separate home screens, apps, e-mail and photos for each. The 16-GB model will sell for $399, while the 32-GB model will cost $499, starting Nov. 13.

    All the new Nexus devices would be running on the latest Android 4.2 Jelly Bean OS.

  • Detailed instructions and video to tell you how to install Google Wallet on Galaxy Nexus

    Posted on February 3rd, 2012 David Brooks | 136 comments

    The Galaxy Nexus for Verizon Wireless is the first handset to offer the Android 4.0 “Ice Cream Sandwich” platform, giving you more flexibility to express yourself than ever before. Featuring the first HD Super AMOLED screen, the Galaxy Nexus delivers extreme color and clarity on a huge 4.65 inch touch screen for you to watch HD Blu-ray movies on Galaxy Nexus. 4G LTE network capabilities exhibit astounding speed and with a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, the Galaxy Nexus is optimized for faster multitasking. However, with the access of Google Wallet on AT&T GSM Galaxy Nexus, the state of the deployment of Google Wallet for the LTE Variant on Verizon has made LTE Galaxy Nexus users quite irritated. And thanks to the Droid-Life writer Kellex, who has brought the detailed instructions and showed a video on how to install Google Wallet from Google Market on Verizon LTE Galaxy Nexus.

    Galaxy Nexus Google WalletGalaxy Nexus users needed to use a Google Wallet .apk, a risky and nonofficial Google app, to install Google Wallet on Galaxy Nexus last December, while AT&T Nexus users only need a AT&T SIM to use Wallet. Verizon LTE Galaxy Nexus users could now install the app directly from the Android Market without flashing a zip or doing anything that a non-rooted phone could not do. Instructions showed bellow:

    1. From your phone, open the browser and head to http://market.android.com.
    2. Search for “Google Wallet.” (If your browser prompts you to open the Market, don’t. Just stay in the browser.)
    3. When the results come back, tap on the Google Wallet icon.
    4. The phone will prompt you to leave the browser and go to the Market. Choose the Market this time.
    5. You should now be sitting in the Android Market with Google Wallet up.
    6. Tap “install” and enjoy.

    If that short method is not working, here is the full method:
    Tip: You may want to clear data and defaults on browser and Market before doing this.
    1. From your phone open the browser and head to http://market.android.com.
    2. Search for “Google Wallet.” (If your browser prompts you to open the Market, don’t. Just stay in the browser.)
    3. When the results come back, tap on the Google Wallet icon.
    4. Tap the “Install” button from within the browser and then sign into your Google account. (Again, this is all from the browser, not the Market app.)
    5. Once you have signed in, you should be redirected back to the Market page in the browser.
    6. Obviously, you will not have the option to install there since the VZW Nexus is not supported.
    7. Tap the back button until you are prompted for the Market or Browser again, this time choosing the Market.
    8. The Android Market should open to the Google Wallet page with an option to install.

    Verizon Nexus Google WalletNote: It’s definitely working for most that have an unlocked bootloader and are rooted. As far as the completely stock, unrooted, with a locked bootloader crowd, it’s tough to tell.

    To understand the whole installation easier, you can check the following video to get the detailed operation on how to install Google Wallet on your Galaxy Nexus:
