Nexus One vs Droid

Here’s a photo I took over my holiday break. I ran into a friend/Google Employee who had the lovely Nexus One. The Nexus One is on the left, and the Droid is on the right side.

The major differences are:

  • Nexus One had a newer version of Android OS which displays the photo/video galleries much nicer, smoother transitions, and better widgets than the Droid
  • Hardware-wise, Nexus One doesn’t have a slide-out keyboard.
  • Nexus One is only available on the T-Mobile network now, unless you buy an unlocked phone, whereas the Droid is on Verizon.
  • The Nexus One is much lighter.

For more information about Google’s Nexus One phone, see their official website and check out DroidDoes.com for more information about the Droid..

I personally think both phones are very nice if you are comfortable with the Android OS. The preferred phone carrier would be the deciding factor for the two phones. Both come with the Google Maps Navigation system, so that alone is worth getting either phones. If you like the Nexus One, Verizon will get it in the Spring. If you want it now, go with T-mobile or buy an unlocked phone. ;)

Google Maps Navigation on Droid

Half of my day consisted of reading your tweets and reviewing apps and gadgets. It’s been quite productive. :) Pictured above is the Motorola Droid, running on the 2.0.1, and the free Google Maps Navigation service. This service alone is worth getting the phone. The turn-by-turn voice navigation is quite awesome. :) Stay tuned, a full review of the Droid to come soon!

Firefox for Mobile Devices

FirefoxI’m really looking forward to trying out Firefox mobile when it’s released. Below is a video that highlights what Firefox mobile can do.

Swiping left and right to see the controls is a great idea since space is very limited. And the AwesomeBar sounds, well, awesome! I really like the idea of Weave Sync as well. This technology syncs your mobile, work desktop, home desktop, etc. for a seamless transition in web browsing. Location-Aware browsing sounds pretty amazing. It’s like having Yelp for topics you’re browsing on! Check out the video for more features.

Meet some of the members of the Mozilla Mobile Team as they give you a quick tour of the user interface and features of Firefox for mobile devices, including the Awesome Bar, Weave Sync, add-ons and tabbed browsing, to name a few.

Turn Your Phone into a Scanner with UpCode!

Upcode for VideoI just saw this new technology on the news called “UpCode.” Basically, it’s a UPC code or barcode that’s read by a phone. You take a photo of the code. The the camera scans it. Then, this brings the content to the phone. The content can be anything from music videos, games, business cards, and more. To the right is a Upcode to download a music video.

UpCodeâ„¢ includes an optical reader that uses mobile phones/devices to add any electronic information or system to printed products and to electronic information on screens. With the application it is possible to integrate all businesses and all forms of eCommerce, with print and screen media. The code (2D data matrix, QR-code, 1D barcode or color code) or other type of tag (picture, OCR) gives mobile phone users multiple access and interaction, for an example but not only to internet content simply by pointing their phone at a code. Complete integration of localization, personalization, objects and other data.
