Google Helping U.S. Army To Launch Missiles From Their Phones

Smartphones are already commonly used in most workplaces, and now the folks at Google are working with military contractors to equip G.I. .Joes. Reuters is reporting that Google, Motorola and HTC have been working along side Raytheon, markers of the Patriot missile defense system, to develop software which could allow a soldier on the battlefield to gain important information via an Android OS device.

According to Raytheon, Google has helped push the limits of the phone and integrate features such as detailed satellite imagery, unmanned drone video and even tap into the Patriot missile system itself.

Nexus One Officially Sold Out On Google Web Store

As we warned was imminent, the Nexus One is no longer available directly from Google, as supplies have been exhausted. Google.com/phone has been replaced with a simple message directing customers to a help center article outlining carriers that supply the device. Carriers will continue to sell the device until their own stocks are depleted.

The Nexus One online experiment was considered a flop by most, but the phone’s hardware was a huge step forward for Android at the time and ignited a flurry of powerful, high-end Android phones that followed in its wake.

Android Devs Rejoice - Paid Apps Now Available In The Android Market In South Korea

One of Android Market's biggest shortcomings compared to the iOS App Store is that paid apps are available in only a handful of countries compared to this much more impressive list of countries iOS supports.

Google needs to change this situation, and if they want to make Android just as appealing to developers as iOS is, they need to do it now. The more markets with paid apps supported, the more potential customers, the more appeal.

Nexus One Hits The End Of The Road – Google Receives Last Shipment

We knew Google was planning on closing down the web store, and it looks like they’re pretty close to that point. In a blog post today, they announced that they’ve received their last batch of Nexus Ones. While they may still be available in certain markets – including Vodafone (in Europe) and KT (in Korea), as well as other places “based on local market conditions,” – this by and large marks the end.

Vodafone Releasing FroYo Update For Nexus One Soon

Vodafone Germany has been sending out a few interesting tweets lately, and the official word seems to be that Android 2.2 should be rolling out to Nexus One users sometime in the next few days (presumably, those are business days). Granted, we’re working with Google Translate on this one, but it’s probably safe to assume the translation is solid.

I’m a bit surprised there’s even a fuss at all, as the finalized FroYo update has only been rolling out to US N1 users for a short while, and no other phones have yet to receive official FroYo.

Nexus One Finally Receives FM Radio Support, Not Thanks To Google But The Android Community. Coming To A ROM Near You!

Ever since HTC released its version of Google’s Nexus One, the Desire, people have wondered why Google haven’t given the N1 any FM Radio capability. The HTC Desire uses the same Broadcom chipset as the Nexus One, so why does one have FM Radio and the other doesn't?

Official Word

Asked about this at their I/O conference, a Google rep said the company had no plans to bring FM Radio to the Nexus One and told everyone to turn to the hacking community for support, as there are a number of custom ROMs out there for the device.

Google & Logitech Bringing Android To The Livingroom

During Google I/O, Google announced Google TV. Yesterday, the Logitech Revue – the first Google TV box – passed FCC approval, and as usual, the FCC was kind enough to provide some pictures of the unit.

According To Google CEO Eric Schmidt, There Will Be No Nexus Two

It seems the question of whether Google will be staying in the business of designing flagship Android phones has been definitively answered, and by none other than the man in charge: Google CEO Eric Schmidt. While there has been speculation for some time that a Nexus Two may never happen, Eric Schmidt has effectively confirmed that this is the case…(emphasis ours)

Initially, Google felt that they needed to build a device to help Android along so they worked with HTC to create the Nexus One handset.
