Guess What !? Today, George Clooney was spotted filming a commercial for an Android smartphone in Malibu yesterday. This is some game-changing news... isn't it ? The Photos below shows Clooney with a Samsung GALAXY Nexus and playing with his dog.
Well, to be true about it, It's unclear what exactly the commercial is going to be, although it is said to have been an Android commercial.
It doesn't seem to be a commercial for the Galaxy Nexus itself because the Samsung branding was blacked out on the phone (as you can see on the photo above) OR the Nexus could be Clooney's own personal phone.
What's your comment on this, share your opinion on the Comments section below!
This isn't Ubuntu for Android, or a hacked together demo made by an enthusiast, this is Real Official version of Ubuntu running on a Google Nexus 7 tablet and being shown off by an official Canonical engineer.
Canonical founder, Mark Shuttlesworth, has said that beginning with Ubuntu 13.04, which is due in April 2013, the team will be focusing on "mobile metrics" like battery life and memory consumption, which will lead to the OS being able to run on a much wider range of Android & mobile devices.
The Unity UI is already a solid step towards being touchscreen friendly, so now it is just a matter of optimizing the OS for touchscreen devices. The start of that work looks to be right around the corner as Shuttlesworth told developers attending the Ubuntu Developer Summit (UDS) in Copenhagen Denmark next week to bring their Nexus 7s, because Google's tablet is apparently a great "reference" device for the project.
The Samsung Nexus Prime is expected to be revealed at the company event next Tuesday, has apparently been detailed as an Ice Cream Sandwich Verizon exclusive. The 9mm-thick device will have a 4.65-inch 1280 x 720p Super AMOLED HD curved glass display, but rather than one of Samsung own Exynos processors will instead run Texas Instrument 1.5 GHz OMAP 4460 dual-core Cortex A9 with 1GB RAM.
There will be 32GB of integrated storage, the tipster continues, along with WiFi a/b/g/n and NFC. Apparently the camera will only muster 8-megapixels with a 1.3-megapixel camera up front for video recording though will still be capable of 1080p Full HD video recording. Connectivity is said to be LTE or HSPA depending on carrier, though seeing as the Nexus Prime is said to be a Verizon exclusive in the US that will mean LTE. Versions abroad will presumably have HSPA+ instead, where LTE networks are not available.
Finally there is NFC support, as Google continues to push its Google Wallet wireless payments service, and a 1,750 mAh battery. OS is Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, with no third-party modifications since this is a pure Nexus device. Interestingly, one addition to ICS is said to be a granular data monitor, which will show how much data is being used on a per-app basis.
LTE is big on this year CES. We have seen the Galaxy Nexus for Verizon and now Sprint is getting its own 4G lineup. The LTE version of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus is landing at Sprint along with the Sierra Wireless Tri-Network Hotspot.
The Sprint Galaxy Nexus specs will be similar to the verizon one, 4.65-inch Super AMOLED HD display, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, CDMA and LTE combo network support and 5 MP camera capable of 1080p video capture on the back.
We all heard rumors about the Google Nexus tablet, well, Today we have some juicy info about it, "Google Play" is the expected name of Google Upcoming 7-inch tablet.

Expected Release Date
Soruces confirm that the production (factory production not market release) of the Google Play tablet could start as early as in April 2012 and it be a Motorola branded tablet
Google Play™ Trademark
Now, here is the only clue we have for why Google might have chosen Play as the name. On February 29th, the company registered a bunch of domains via brand protection company MarkMonitor. Here is the list of Domains:
Last year, a frequent leaker of all things Nexus tweeted that there would be a version with a slide out keyboard but this wasn't implemented on the Galaxy Nexus models, but according to some fast-track patents that Google filed with the USPTO in January, a Nexus slider is something google is still working on, it's similar to the Xperia play but it have a QWERTY keyboard instead of the play station joystick. Here is a photo of the device sketching leaked from google patent file.
A series of three patents were field, which listed lead Android developer Andy Rubin as the main inventor. Each showed new internal mechanisms that appear to allow for a slider that is thinner, and has less overlap when opened, then other devices. The upshot would be a larger physical keyboard without a bulkier phone. The mechanisms (pictured below) include a "spring and stabilizing link" slider, a "serpentine spring styled" slider, and an innovative looking "scissor-hinge" slider.
Today, A trusted source confirmed many of the details about the Google upcoming Nexus tablet. The Upcoming Google 7-inch tablet may not be named "Nexus" but it will be built by ASUS, Google may giveaway one of these tablets to each person attends the Google I/O 2012 event on June 27th as a hardware giveaways, Google always do that its I/O events.

The tablet will pack a Tegra 3 Quad-core processor and the price expected to stat from $299 which is amazingly competitive with other tablets on the market.
An ASUS representative at the Computex trade show has confirmed that the first Nexus tablet from Google will be produced by ASUS, and will be unveiled before the end of June. The Google 7-inch tablet will cost around $200 or as low as $149, which indicate they are planning to compete with Amazon's Kindle Fire.
Google I/O 2012 event is set for June 27th - 28th, Which will be also the launch event of the Nexus tablet.
LG will soon be releasing a New Nexus Phone with Google "LG Nexus", LG's Nexus in its current prototype version runs on Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean, but chances are it'd get an update to Android 4.2 just before its launch.
There is a 4.7-inch screen with a resolution of 768 x 1280 pixels, a whopping quad-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm chip under the hood and 2GB of RAM.
The latest image of the LG Nexus 4 has been released, along with the specs that we have been expecting for the latest Nexus phone have been confirmed. The information leaked confirms the Quad-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro APQ8064 processor, the 4.7 inch 768 x 1280 screen with 2GB of RAM.

Nexus 7 users trying to install Instagram on their shiny new tablets would until now have gotten an "unsupported device" message. Well, It's finally over as Instagram has already issued an update that adds support for Google's newest tablet and the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean as general.
Although one might wonder why would anyone need Instagram on a tablet that doesn't even have a rear camera, it would at least allow you to check photos uploaded by others on that 720p IPS display. And you can always take a picture with the front camera if you ever wanted to.
Most Samsung smartphones are now available with a shiny white dresses for the holiday season, Here comes the Galaxy Nexus white Eddition a little bit late.
According to some UK retailers the white Galaxy Nexus units should start arriving sometime next month. Dates vary, but are generally in the first two weeks of the month. Pricing for the white version is identical to that of its black sibling.
Pre-orders for the 32GB version of the Galaxy Nexus also started, but there is no exact launch date for that one yet. Its £599.99 price tag sure sounds scary, but given that there is no microSD card slot on that one, this is your only option of getting a bit of extra space for all those apps and multimedia files.
Yesterday, We published a leaked photo (photo above with red X on it) of the Galaxy Nexus white version but it turns out to be a Mock-up and not the real Galaxy Nexus white.
Today, YouMobile.Org has just received the Official Photos of the Galaxy Nexus White (photos below), It looks like only the back and sides of the device will be covered with White but the front will stay black in order to make the panel looks the same as the original Galaxy Nexus which is awesome.

NenaMark 2 is a popular Android benchmark for 3D performance and it offers an online database of results. Interestingly, a Samsung Galaxy Nexus with an updated GPU popped up in the results.
The Galaxy Nexus uses a TI OMAP 4460 chipset, which packs a PowerVR SGX540 GPU. That's the same GPU Samsung used in the original Galaxy S. The interesting benchmark result (submitted anonymously) however claims it ran on PowerVR SGX544. It is used in the TI OMAP 4470 chipset, which suggest that the change is due to an upgraded chipset.
Anyway, the GPU scored 39.8fps, while the regular Galaxy Nexus got 24fps when we tested it. Which is what you would expect as the SGX544 offers double the raw performance of the SGX540 (they are both clocked at 384MHz in their respective chipsets).

Apple US Patents Against Galaxy Nexus
• US Patent No. 5946647 - System and method for performing an action on a structure in computer-generated data.
Apple previously won the ruling over this patent, resulting in the ban of importation or sale on a number of HTC Android devices, including the T-Mobile G2, the AT&T Aria, the Sprint Evo 4G and the Verizon Droid Incredible.

• US Patent No. 8086604 - Universal interface for retrieval of information in a computer system.
This refers to searching multiple sources of information on a device from a single means of entry. Apple make reference to Siri specifically, but they argue that the inclusion of text-based entry via the means of Spotlight would be just as viable for grounds of infringement.
• US Patent No. 8046721 - Unlocking a device by performing gestures on an unlock image.
Every iOS device has that recognizable 'slide to unlock' bar along the bottom of the screen. Despite already having patent coverage on the image unlock feature, this newer, broader patent aims to include the more unique ways in which other OEMs have developed for unlocking their Android devices.
• US Patent No. 8074172 - Method, system, and graphical user interface for providing word recommendations.
The fourth and final patent in Apple arsenal is also the most recent. It covers the nature of semi-predictive text entry; that is to say, when the user starts to enter text into the device and is given the option to accept or reject suggested words manually.

The CDMA version of the Nexus S finally gets its long-awaited Ice Cream Sandwich update. In fact, the ICS version listed after flashing is version 4.0.4.
This, as opposed to 4.0.3. is not a part of any official Android build, and may likely contain functionality yet to be announced by Google. As of now, the only confirmed update found in 4.0.4 is for WiMax drivers.
Moire rumores dates for the Nexus S 4G Android 4.0.4 update are coming up. Today, we have a leaked ROM for the Nexus S 4G. This one will update your phone to Android 4.0.4, bringing all the features that other Nexus S users have been enjoying for months, along with some improvements to the WiMAX reception, due to the updated baseband.
Google recently started rolling out the Android 4.0.4 update to the GSM versions of the Galaxy Nexus and the Nexus S but few users have actually received the update so far, with most choosing to simply flash it manually. This leaked ROM will be going live OTA very soon!
Android 4.1 Jelly Bean runs on the Google Nexus 7, and the Samsung Galaxy Nexus is the next device in line for some of that Jelly Bean goodness. This is all stuff that we already know. Yet what Samsung just made official is that the Nexus S will get the JB update as well. This is not a rumor as the statement comes straight from Samsung Korea.
Here is Samsung Statement about the Update:
"Samsung will soon announce which additional devices are eligible for the Jelly Bean update. As the world's largest smartphone manufacturer, Samsung leads the Android community with best-in-class devices like the Galaxy S III, and is creating new device categories with products like the Galaxy Note. Samsung has delivered the most Nexus-branded lead OS devices and we are pleased that Google will be bringing Samsung Galaxy Nexus and Nexus S customers the first experiences of Jelly Bean on a handheld device."
As you can see, Samsung also promised to announce the list of the devices that will be Updated to Android 4.1 JellyBean very soon.
Remember, The Photos you see here is just a Mock-up of a Concept Android 5.0 Jelly Bean device and its Not Real, its called the Google Galaxy Ultima.
This concept phone packs a 4.7 inches RGB IPS+ display with 720p display which generates 1000 nits of brightness. The back of the handset is with Kevlar material and it comes with steel frame which protects the internal part of the device. CPU is choose to be a quadra core Exynos 5250 and graphical support is via Mali GPU. It will include 20 mega pixel camera with 5 mega pixel front facing camera and this phone will come with waterproof and bullet proof glass. Remember that this measures 9 mm thickness.
While we know that the Google Nexus S is scheduled to be one of the first devices to see an update to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean beside the Galaxy Nexus. If you want to try this New Android OS on your Nexus S, the XDA forums always got the solution for you.
Android Jelly Bean 4.1.1 AOSP ROM is now available for the Nexus S. There's not too much to know about this release except that legolas 93 says everything works which is awesome. Obviously you should be confortable with the process of rooting and flashing ROMs to your phone before you continue.
An Android Police reader has reported receiving the 4.1.1 update on his GSM Nexus S (I9023). It's a 114.4MB update, which brings the build number to JEO03E.
Some of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus owners who already received the Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean Update, is now reporting that the new software contains a GPS bug, which renders the functionality unusable.
Now, the situation isn't as bad as it seems since the glitch can be easily squashed. Before you try to fix anything, however,you might want to make sure that your Samsung Galaxy Nexus is affected. To do that, make sure that you are at a place where GPS signal can be received. Then open Google Maps and check if a "Searching for GPS..." notification appears. If you get the notification and the blinking GPS icon is absent, then your device is affected.
A mock-up of a concept phone called the Google Nexus D shows that curves might be in when it comes to handsets. Designed by a Dorian Lust, the Google Nexus D shows a curved back, a concave touchscreen and a kickstand to prop the phone up while viewing video.
The designer says that the Google Nexus D was envisioned to have a Quad-core 1.8GHz processor, 1.5GB of RAM and have 32GB or 64GB of storage. It's also shock proof which means that dropping the Google Nexus D might not be the end of the world.
Now that the Samsung Galaxy S III is less than a month away from launching, Verizon's cut the price of the first Ice Cream Sandwich device GALAXY Nexus by $50 from its current $199.99 contract price.

Sprint's Samsung Galaxy Nexus owners will get a minor software update today, July 26. However, it is not the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update that you've been waiting for. The Jelly Bean update is a little bit delayed but its coming for sure!
The Minor update of today will bring the smartphone's software build version to number L700.FG01. One of the changes you might notice is the tweaked on-screen signal strength indicator, although that does not necessarily mean that you will be getting better reception. Support for Sprint TV is being added as well, which is more than welcome for folks who like to keep an eye on ESPN while on the go.

After the Samsung GALAXY Nexus made a Huge success around the world to be the first device that has a 720p HD display and Android 4.0 ICS... Samsung & Google is looking to be partners again.
Since Samsung has become the top vendor of Android smartphones, Google will continue to have Samsung develop its Next-generation Nexus Phone, Briniging Samsung's innovation ability with regard to the Android platform, and its ability to control the supply of key components.
Also, according to rumors the Next-generation Nexus smartphone will pack Android 4.1 Jelly-Bean.
Looks like Google & Samsung is going to release a New Nexus Smartphone, Google's Next Nexus will carry a Model number I9260 (Galaxy Nexus was I9250) which suggest that it will be an improved-version of the Galaxy Nexus. We also have the leaked specs sheet (Photo below) but the specs suggest a minor improvement to the previous Nexus.
The Next "Nexus" will be offering a 4.65" SuperAMOLED HD display and a Cortex-A9 Dual-core clocked at 1.5 GHz (was 1.2GHz on the Galaxy Nexus), an 8 MP camera on the back and 1.9 MP one on the front, The device will also carry a 16GB Internal Storage but it will support MicroSD card slot this time. The device will be powered by Android 4.1 Jelly Bean out-of-the-box.
Apparently, Samsung and Google are working on a 10" Nexus tablet, what's really amazing that the companies may try to beat out the pixel density of the new iPad Retina display. The expected market name might be "Samsung Galaxy Nexus Tab".
The rumor has it that while the Nexus 7 is gunning for the budget market that is currently occupied by the Amazon Kindle Fire and the Barnes & Noble Nook Tablet, the new 10" tablet from Samsung and Google will be aiming for the premium market.
NPD DisplaySearch analyst Richard Shim says that, according to supply chain information, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus tablet will feature a display of 2,560x1,600 at 10.1" giving it a pixel display of 299 PPI. This would make it even higher resolution than the new iPad which has a 9.7" display at 2,048x1,536 (264 PPI).
It is said that Google holds the answers to all burning questions, but sometimes you need a human support to help you with your Nexus device problems.
Rumor has it that Google will have its very own hotline for Nexus device owners. Evidence in support of that claim was found in a job offering aimed at outgoing Android aficionados. Technically, the third-party company recruiting the staff does not mention Google's name, but since it is mentioned that the client, located in the Mountain View area, recently released a tablet, it isn't hard to figure out who the employees will be working for.
The Google Call Center should go live by the End of this month (October) and it will be exclusively for Google Nexus devices owners only.
You probably heard about Google-Samsung Nexus Tab that will pack a 10-inch display we reported about it before, A rumor from unknown source said to CNET that the 10" GALAXY Nexus Tab may not launch by the end of this year, but will be announced during the first half of 2013, May be on the MWC13.
This actually makes sense, since judging by what we've heard, the Nexus 10 tablet is expected to be a monster. According to some unofficial sources, the device will be produced by Samsung, in tight partnership with Google.
It is said that with this tablet, the companies want to challenge the iPad, which is not only much more popular, but features technology which is yet to appear in an Android device.
After teasing us with a few images every other day, Belarusian website Onliner.by posted a full review of what has come to be known as the LG Nexus 4.
We can see from the images just how similar the Nexus 4 is to the Galaxy Nexus. The all-black, featureless face has become a signature of the Nexus line of phones since the Nexus S. The Nexus 4 looks practically identical to the Galaxy Nexus from the front, save for a chrome ring around the bezel. It even has the notification LED in the same place as the Galaxy Nexus.
On the back, LG has dumped Samsung's matte grey back with the typical bump near the bottom for a flat glossy back with a peculiar dotted pattern. The back of this phone still says "with Google".
As mentioned before, the display uses an LCD panel, but the review mistakenly states the resolution as 1280 x 720, when the actual screenshots are in 1280 x 768 resolution. This particular device was running Android 4.1.2 Jelly bean but it is expected the final version to run on Android 4.2.
After many leaks and Rumors, LG has now confirmed that Google will unveil the Nexus 4 next Monday, on October,29th Android event.
"Google will unveil the LG Nexus on October 29 and the phone will be available in the Indian markets by the end of November," - LG Mobile Product Planning head Amit Gujral said. The LG executive mentioned that the device will have a 4.7-inch display and a 1.5GHz Quad-core processor.
With the new Nexus flagship, Google will bring a brand new version of the Android operating system. Android 4.2 was widely rumored and now LG is confirming this as well.

This display is far better and bigger display than that the Apple's iPad 4 which features a IPS 2048x1536 resolution at only 264ppi on a 9.7 inch screen. Nexus 10 sAMOLED screen offers more pixels, more size, deeper colors, higher brightness with a standard resolution unlike the iPad 4. Here is the display details for each device:
iPad 4: 2048x1536 with 264ppi on a 9.7" Retina IPS, about 3 Million pixels.
