Well what can I say? This blog is about the Google Nexus One phone which is one of the best smartphones that i’ve ever used before so far. You could compare it to Apple’s IPhone, but google isn’t actually directly competing with them. Google’s idea is to create a truly open-source platform where everything is open, with no boundaries, limits or catches. As opposed to platforms such as Apple’s IOS and Symbian (which was previously closed sourced, but recently made open-source), android is fully open so you can do anything you want with it. There has been reports that Android even works with Apple’s iphone, this shows the potential of the OS as it can be ported to almost any device. Recent months even have China and Taiwan IPad clones running on Android OS.

While this blog will be mainly about Nexus One news, there will also be selected news about the Android OS platform, which I believe has a great future ahead of it. With manufacturers such as Samsung, Sony Ericsson, Motorola, HTC all of which are switching to the Android OS, you can be sure that the Android OS will be in almost every device in the future.

Apart from Android News, this blog is also the home of my own crafted Android Apps which could take over the world someday (that was a joke by the way. ha ha ha). Do hang around and check out my android apps and you’re more than welcome to give your 2 cents worth.

    Cannot find a place to send some suggestions about your apps so I’m writing here (I totally refuse to registering to a forum just for leaving a comment).

    I started using the Rotation toggler app today, and I find it great, but I think it lacks one important feature:
    When I’m on portrait mode, I long-press the search button and it locks the screen rotation to portrait, sounds logical. Now, when I’m on landscape mode, I long-press the search button and it locks to portrait!
    I think it should lock to the current position, not always to portrait!

    Hope you add this feature soon 😉

    Hi Rodrigo,

    Actually that’s how most if not all rotation toggling apps work for android because the android api doesnt allow locking of the screen rotation to landscape. It only allows disabling of auto-rotation which is similar to going to the settings > display > auto-rotate screen. Hope this clears things up.
