<<An Android dogfood diet for the holidays
Saturday, December 12, 2009 8:58 AM
At Google, we are constantly experimenting with new products and technologies, and often ask employees to test these products for quick feedback and suggestions for improvements in a process we call dogfooding (from "eating your own dogfood"). Well this holiday season, we are taking dogfooding to a new level.

We recently came up with the concept of a mobile lab, which is a device that combines innovative hardware from a partner with software that runs on Android to experiment with new mobile features and capabilities, and we shared this device with Google employees across the globe. This means they get to test out a new technology and help improve it.

Unfortunately, because dogfooding is a process exclusively for Google employees, we cannot share specific product details. We hope to share more after our dogfood diet.>>

<< The phone in question is NOT the Google phone according to the company and is a "mobile lab" used for testing software. The big guns at Mountain View got wind of what was being said about the handset and said that the "handouts" were simply a way to test "innovative hardware from a partner with software that runs on Android to experiment with new mobile features." >>

[Moved from "Google phone (aka nexus one)" – Tony]

The google phone has been confirmed. It's name is nexus one, it will be manufactured by htc under the direction of google. It has the snapdragon processor, highres oled touch screen, 2 mics for noise reduction. There will be speech to text and will be released in early 2010, likely January. Google has already passed out these phones to employees for testing. I will post pictures when I can access a computer.

<<According to ZDNet, Google’s Nexus One has been approved this morning by the FCC as model PB99100. At this point, the filings tell us the device will support microSD expansion, 802.11b/g Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR. The filings also indicate the device will support quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE with UMTS/HSUPA on 850/1700/1900 frequencies. >>

These mobile carriers are getting expensive lately. My mobile carrier is requiring me to pay an add'l $60/mth for data plans which I don't use:(Maybe Google will bring a spark to the table.

Apparently some non-US sites didn't get any-- but 17 thousand Googlers did.

Might they use ads to offset the cost?

<<Google Inc. isn't talking publicly about reported plans to sell a powerful Android-based smartphone called the Nexus One directly to consumers next year, but the idea is already raising eyebrows with analysts.

The chief concern is that selling an unlocked phone directly to consumers, probably online, could be twice as expensive as buying one through a carrier. Today, for example, the Motorola Droid from Verizon Wireless sells for $200 with a two-year contract, meaning it would go for $400 if unlocked, analysts said.>>

Google may get sued over "Nexus" name:

<< The New York Times website featured an interesting piece yesterday about the origin of the Nexus One name. It's no secret that Motorola licensed the name "Droid" from Star Wars' creator George Lucas, but now, claims that Google is using the "Nexus" name without prior authorization have surfaced. Isa Dick Hackett, whose father wrote "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?" claims that Google stole the "Nexus" name from her father's novel. >>

I just hope most of the speculations are true. I can't wait to have one!
I saw this photo and I just can't help but imagine how amazing the AMOLED screen looks like and how smooth this Nexus One is going to be.

The phone that Google employees received contains an Easter Egg. Instead of the Google or HTC logo, it contains a picture of Android waving a flag containing a QR Code. The code contains the URL to android.com/holidays

Looks like that redirects to altamirafinishes.com/home/

I wonder how much traffic they're pulling in from that!
