KT brings the Nexus One to South Korea, complete with Froyo

,----[ Quote ]
| The Nexus One may have taken a little 
| while to reach South Korea, but it looks 
| like KT is doing its best to make up for 
| lost time -- the carrier has just 
| announced that it will not only be 
| offering the Nexus One, but that it will 
| come complete with Android 2.2 (a.k.a. 
| Froyo). 


Motorola, Sony Ericsson, and LG spin Android phones

,----[ Quote ]
| Motorola is prepping two high-end Android 
| phones for summer release on Verizon -- 
| the 4.3-inch Droid X and a keyboard-
| enabled Droid 2 -- say reports. Meanwhile, 
| LG will ship 20 Android phones this year, 
| and Sony Ericsson is readying a mid-range 
| Xperia X8 Android model, say other 
| reports.


Which Android? Sony Ericsson May Mix It Up With Xperia X8

,----[ Quote ]
| It appears that Sony Ericsson may deliver 
| its Xperia X8 smartphone with Android 
| version 1.6 in some parts of Europe and 
| version 2.1 in others. The older version 
| lacks some speed and performance 
| enhancements, live wallpaper, built-in 
| pinch-to-zoom capability and 3-D photo 
| galleries. Still, many consumers are 
| likely to find it adequate for their 
| needs, according to Gartner analyst 
| Carolina Milanesi.


Browser privacy issue with DROID Incredible and HTC Sense UI widget?

,----[ Quote ]
| An astute reader stumbled upon an interesting 
| bug with the HTC Incredible. The Incredible, 
| with Sense UI, will periodically store 
| screenshots of the contents of your web 
| browser. The screen captures are a function 
| of the HTC Sense UI bookmark widget



The Flavor of Android's Open Apps

,----[ Quote ]
| It started when I heard that National
| Public Radio (NPR) had an Android app last
| week. Actually, I'm sure they had the app
| earlier than that, but it was the news
| that this application was being open
| sourced by NPR that brought it to my
| attention.
| While I have been grooving on my new
| phone, I haven't been downloading things
| willy-nilly yet, because my current lack
| of travel plans means that I'm in the home
| office a lot and therefore don't need a
| fully stocked mobile platform yet.
