| winner. I wasn't enthusiastic about buying 
| a phone on the internet sight unseen, but 
| the day it was reported that it finally had 
| the pinch-to-zoom thing enabled, I decided 
| to take the plunge. I've wanted to have a 
| GPS unit for my car anyway, and I thought 
| that google navigation might finally make a 
| phone useful.

| The Nexus One ships with a 2.6.29 kernel 
| but if you like living on the bleeding edge

| experimental 2.6.32 kernel). Below youâll 
| find an update image I built which includes 
| a 2.6.32 kernel, su, scp and ssh.

| promise, there are major differences, says 
| Williams. âAbout a third of the Android 
| code base is open and nothing more,â says 
| Williams. âAnd what is open is a collection 
| of middleware. Everything else is closed or 
| proprietary.â

| HTCâs been pretty good about celebrating
