Google's Nexus

Recommended Posts

One other thing to mention, I like the little notification bar at the top of the screen, you can pull it down to see SMSs, emails etc.

It'd be nice if it was touch(click)able rather than hold and drag, as you can tend to miss SMSs if you aren't careful.

Or alternatively have something like the jesusphone number on the homepage icon.

Try out the app Handcent SMS. It will pop up a modal box with the message text and a quick reply box (this can be disabled). It also provides a home page icon that counts unread SMSs.

I think the touchpad thing is Android based, cause with the Facebook app (for eg) the keyboard works fine.

To edit or create a new access point

 

If you and your wireless service provider determine that you need to change the settings of your current access point name (APN) or to create a new one, you must obtain the APN and detailed settings from your provider.

1

 

Press Home , press Menu , and touch Settings to open the Settings application.

2

 

Touch Wireless controls > Mobile networks > Access Point Names.

3

 

Touch an existing APN to edit it. Or press Menu and touch New APN.

 

Enter the APN settings that you obtained from your wireless service provider by touching each setting that you need to edit.

4

 

When you're finished, press Menu and touch Save.

5

 

If you created a new APN, touch it in the APNs screen to start using it.

 

For those using unapproved telcos.

Besides, iTunes is lacking in a number of areas and it means you are suffering from major vendor lock in.

I'm not so concerned about a "vendor lock in" but you're correct in saying that iTunes lacks a lot of features, and those that it has I find are poor implementations of the idea.

Bwahahaha! Funny how Engadget's multi-touch demo shows the Nexus One loading their website really fast, yet in their review, they made every effort to point out how slow it was compared the the iPhone, with video of it taking ages. Someone should tell them that testing a device on one site, with one trial, isn't very scientific. :)

 

And woot for multi-touch! Too bad I can't justify the price of getting a smartphone of this calibre. :(

Hey guys I need a new phone,

Nexus One is on my list..

I have an original Iphone and it gives me the shits.. Anyway I'm not interested in flaming a product or w/e

All i wanted to ask was does Nexus One work on Australian 3G networks?

I hear contrasting answers on various sites.

From what I understand it should work on Optus and Vodafone 3G but not on Telstra Next G? Is this correct? If so that's fine.

The current bands it uses are UTMS 900/2100Mhz or 850/1900/2100 MHz

 

So if you can you can use it on all the networks. Just check which bands it uses and go with the ones that your carrier uses. I'm with Vodafone atm. Works fine.

Hey thanks for the response guys,

I am still reading up it's a big expenditure for me at least.

Does anyone know any good sites or prices from the UK?

$899?

I have a friend in Canada who could order it straight from google for me for about 600, any reason why I couldn't unlock this phone myself?

Unlocking apparently voids warranty anyway.

 

Hmm wan't to get something engraved on it but I guess it would hurt the phone if i want to sell it. ><
