Samsung Galaxy Nexus – the first phone to get Android Jellybean

Thursday, May 3rd, 2012

The Galaxy Nexus is available through the Google Play US store for a price of $399. This is the unlocked version that comes without a contract. The users can choose any network provider like T-Mobile or AT&T for the smartphone. As of now, it is available through Google Play only in US and it will be coming to the other markets soon.

Ever since this news, the Android fans are expecting quick variations in the device. The Android Tablet Computer and Phone updates are quite sluggish in US. This is mainly due to the network testing that is done by the carriers before releasing the updates. The Google Galaxy Nexus received the Android 4.0.4 ICS update and suffered from some network issues.

As this re-launch of the flagship device, Samsung Galaxy Nexus is by Google itself, there will be no need for network testing. The updates will directly come from Google, hopefully early. The rumors indicate that the GNex will be the first one to receive the Android 5.0 Jellybean update.

The Android 4.0 ICS update is still rolling out and is picking the speed right now. But still, we have already heard a lot of chatter about the next iteration, Jellybean. The Jellybean operating system is expected to launch in June, at the Google I/O event.

If this rumor turns out true, then the GSM Galaxy Nexus will be the first phone to run the Jellybean update. Along with this, the specifications and price make this device attractive. Of course, it is a rumor and it may be faking. All we can do is hope for the best.

Instagram now available for Android Phone users

Saturday, April 7th, 2012


Instagram, after a long wait, is now available for Android Tablet and Dual Sim Cell Phone users.

Instagram was bound to come to Android due to its worldwide iOS following — but when was the question. Now, Android users can finally enjoy the popular photo-sharing app on their smartphone devices.

After registration opened last month, users were able to sign up with their email address, in order to be first in line and notified when the Android-enabled application is released.

Now available in Google Play (previously the Android Marketplace), it is not only the legion of iOS user fans that can take, edit, upload and share images via the app after its debut in October 2010.

There are alternatives to this free app that are currently available on Android devices; such as Lightbox, Vignette and Camera360 — but it can be expected that Instagram will quickly become a hit; if the features available function to the same standards as the iOS version.

Currently, any phone running Android 2.2 or above is compatible, but tablets running Android systems are not.

The Instagram app’s popularity lies within its simplicity of use. After taking a quick shot on your camera, the image can be applied with a range of filters to transform an otherwise standard image. Upload it, post it on social networks or the Instagram site itself, and share your work with other Instagram or photography fans.
