Google doing very well with Nexus One phone

nexus-one.200

It’s quite clear that more people are buying the Apple iPhone than they are buying the Google Nexus One, but does that mean that the latter is not profitable for the search engine giant? Apparently not, because Google is very proud to say that the Nexus One is “a profitable business for us.”

This comes from Patrick Pichette, Google’s chief financial officer, during a company earning’s conference call. Clearly, the Nexus One is not the primary source of revenue for Google, but it’s not a loss leader either.

att-verizon

Ever since the original Apple iPhone launched way back in 2007, thousands of customers have complained about how poor the network performance was with the iPhone. AT&T’s exclusivity over Americans gave them little choice but to put up with it or get another phone.

Could the shackles be broken? If the rumors of a CDMA-equipped iPhone destined for Verizon Wireless, why would Apple and AT&T be continuing the a relationship by working closely with Apple to rectify the network issues.

Its that time of year again when the new iPhone is just around the corner. Just before the summer of every year, the Messiah Jobs comes down from his mountain to bestow upon the land his latest gift to mankind. The groundswell of anticipation from the people below reaches deafening heights as June approaches.

With all the anxious anticipation comes the plethora of educated predictions and “reliable sources” that foretell of the miracles that the latest and greatest will contain. The list seems ever-long, yet consistent. Rumors of a forward facing camera, HD video, higher resolution display, and multi-tasking are always at the top, accompanied with some believable-yet-bogus photoshopped image.

AT&T announces Dell Aero, reincarnation of the Dell Mini 3?

It looks like AT&T is expanding their lineup again. Already with the prized and coveted iPhone, the new Palm phones from earlier today, and joining the family is a new Android phone called the Dell Aero. Looks familiar doesn’t it? That’s because it’s basically the same handset as the Dell Mini 3 that has been on sale in China for a little while now and we suspected back in January headed this way. The critical difference – aside from the clear language alterations – is that the phone is branded as the Dell Aero, and no, you won’t be seeing this on 7-11 shelves.

Google Nexus One headed to Sprint

Google Nexus One phone headed for Sprint

Sprint today announced they will be a carrier of the Google Nexus One smartphone. T-Mobile was originally the only carrier to offer an “official” term plan for the Nexus phone, but after checking up on Google’s phone website T-Mobile’s offering is no longer available. A “Sorry, this item is temporarily out of stock.” on the $179 two year contract plan is nothing less than a coincidence. Sprint won’t be the new and only company to carry the Nexus One, yesterday’s announcement told us about Google’s plan to send the phone to AT&T and Rogers Wireless in Canada, but with sales slumping there’s not much of possibility for a shortage on supply.

Today may be St. Patrick’s Day and there will be a lot of people out there consuming green-colored beer, but there is another meaning to “going green” with AT&T. It involves slaying some vampires and saving the environment, it seems, with the upcoming AT&T ZERO Charger.

As you may already know, devices plugged into the wall continue to draw electricity even when they are not in use. This is true of televisions, for instance, since they are in standby mode.
