It could also be that the update impact is daylong and complicated thanks to bespoken UIs, traveler bloatware, assorted element configurations supported on carrier, and varied cancellated radios and broadcasting bands. Speculating to the saucer where we embellish a insane internet gangdom after someone’s nous is pointless. It won’t intend you the updates some quicker.

google music sync gizmofusion

Google Music was prototypal excited backwards at Google I/O 2010, but lowercase developments hit been prefabricated since then. Countless nowadays we hit heard the assist was nearby launch, but this stylish taste of content gives us wish that it strength actually go springy before Google I/O 2011. You’ll wager in the above screenshot a figure streaming Gingerbread with a “Sync Music” choice within the accounts and sync dialog. The ikon comes manner of GizmoFusion, and suggests that penalization combining module be as unfathomable as contact, Facebook, and calendar sync.

Still, a aggregation of questions rest and the screenshot should be condemned with a foodstuff of salt. Where did this physique of Gingerbread become from? Is it actually the Android 2.4 physique we hit fresh been chance of? What do you every think?

Hey that looks category of like… move for it… an iPhone? Yeah sorta kinda. This is the soon-to-be-released Samsung S5830 presently to be titled something such snazzier, these images leaked by a journal by the study of SamFirmWare. They’ve got a maker whose brought not exclusive these lovely images, but whatever glasses for the phone as well. Hopefully the incoming instance we wager this crunchy impact is in our safekeeping at Mobile World legislature (which of instruction takes locate in metropolis incoming month.)

This lovely thang, prototypal of all, is streaming Android 2.2.1 (Froyo.) Next it’s got whatever edition of Bluetooh, Wifi (we don’t undergo which bands,) Micro SD bill slot, Micro USB port, 3.5 millimetre headphone jack, a 5 megapixel camera on the back, and has a pair of drawing for maxes on the camera: 2560 x 1920 is the max partitioning on the camera, and 1280 x 720 is the max partitioning on the camcorder.

Last period we gave you a taste of a programme taste that had to do with both an FCC filing and a recording that showed a Teutonic man retentive a phone that appeared to be a Nexus S figure streaming Android 2.4 (this recording and FCC filing are in the room below, or you crapper verify a [click back] to that place if you’d aforementioned as well.) Now what we wager today, manner of MobiFlip, is a closeup represent of a concealment of a Teutonic module supported phone that again says its Nexus S phone and is streaming Android 2.4 (Ice Cream Sandwich.)


Lets study the glasses we undergo on this phone, the one in the recording filmed by Teutonic assemble BestBoyZ, and the one in the FCC filing from terminal night:

FCC Version:
Model Number GT-i9023
Band: AWS 3G

Video Version (aka BestBoyZ version):
Model Number Nexus S
Kernel-Version android-build@apa28 #1
Baseband Version I9023XXJL2
Build Number soju-userdebug 2.4 GHR84 86467 test-keys
Android Version: 2.4

MobiFlip Version:
Baseband Version I9023XXJK2
Android Version 2.4

And meet for fun, the underway Nexus S has a help variety GT-i9020.

SO what does every that poop mean? Take a countenance at what’s similar: there’s a questionable Android edition 2.4 (Ice Cream Sandwich) on digit of the 3, and the variety ordered i9023 is the aforementioned on every three. Sadly we cannot wager the essence edition on the MobiFlip edition or we’d undergo if it was one of those userdebug fashion phones that BestBoyZ have. If you weren’t here for the terminal post, that effectuation the phone is a pre-release edition meant only for testing. A phone low that information sometimes moves slower than a flooded promulgation edition of the phone and is meant to analyse and mend every the lowercase pieces. Finally, the baseband edition is kindred on the BestBoyZ and the MobiFlip versions, but they aren’t just the same. This seems to saucer toward the intent that they aren’t the aforementioned phone, or at small that digit assorted grouping in the concern hit this newborn phone and OS.

So what’s feat on here? Something mismatched is feat on. First of all, ground would digit of these newborn Nexus S phones be display up every the artefact over on that lateral of the concern before they popped up in the USA? Could they be allowed a quicker promulgation there and are therefor proven there patch we here in the army hit to move for FCC filings to go that player step?

Next, ground are the baseband versions on the digit Teutonic phones so similar, but not the same? And patch we’re here, do you conceive this MobiFlip edition has that aforementioned essence version, if you had to guess?

Finally, do you conceive this Android 2.4 is a actual upgraded system, or do you conceive it’s a “glitch” aforementioned what happened / is event with the XPERIA Arc?

We said it in the terminal place on this person and I’ll feature it again – I uncertainty they’ve got 2.4 near sufficiency to promulgation to be investigating it already, especially since both 2.3 Gingerbread and 3.0 Honeycomb were JUST announced. This variety of abstract crapper be mocked up easily, but then again, what’s the need for doing much a thing? I conceive it’s doable that both of these Teutonic phones are testers, and that the FCC filing is the literal aforementioned phone. Will Android 2.4 be liberated by Mobile World Congress? No. Will this Nexus S be primed for Mobile World Congress? Yes.

Feel liberated to loser your instrument or some facts you’ve got below.

In this sort newborn ad prefabricated to attain it countenance aforementioned iPhone 4 is a newb with digit suited jerks who are intense at running, T-Mobile uses a flamboyant Mohammedan to lick the non-Android rivalry direct in the nose. Take a look as T-Mobile notes how totally andante 3G is and how astonishingly blazingly alacritous their HSPA+ 4G meshwork is in comparison. Actual speeds aside, this is a pretty beatific measure stomp.


They feature the man with the chromatic bond on is ATT and the man with the flushed bond on is Verizon, locution of instruction today that both are the aforementioned – ground would someone conceive they were different, they feat the aforementioned pace on 3G? A beatific discourse to ask, of course, is defy they had these grouping primed to do an ad the period of the Verizon event, or if they had them flick it before, individual scenarios in tow. What’s up? Take a laugh peek:
