Google Nexus Prime renderings appear accurate

Google Nexus Prime renderings appear accurate

It looks like those fabulous 3D illustrators are at it again, this time to bring us a good glimpse at what might well be what the Nexus Prime looks like. It's the fine team of renderers at Ciccarese Design that draw us up a look at what might well be the next hero phone for Google's mobile operating system, this time looking rather similar to two devices: the last Nexus phone, aka the Nexus S from Samsung, and the Samsung Galaxy S II line here in the USA. From what we understand via the ever-expanding rumor library surrounding this device, that combination might not be all that far off from the truth.

Google MVNO launches in Spain; Euro carrier push tipped [Updated]

Google has quietly set up operations as an MVNO (mobile virtual network operator) in Spain, buying bulk network capacity from existing carriers and providing employees with a special Google SIM in order to use it.

Google Wallet worries: NFC stickers MIA

Google Wallet worries: NFC stickers MIA

Google Wallet may have launched yesterday, but with only one handset, the Nexus S 4G, supported at launch and no mention of the NFC sticker system revealed last May, it's unclear how fast the payments system will spread. Both Google's Wallet site and the official announcement are conspicuously vague on the stickers - which were, it was originally suggested, intended as a workaround for those without the WiMAX Android phone - and there's extra emphasis on the Secure Element system the search giant uses to lock up customers' credit card details.

Google’s Next Nexus Phone Details Roundup [Mid-Sept 2011, pre-release]

Google’s Next Nexus Phone Details Roundup [Mid-Sept 2011, pre-release]

Each time Google creates a new version of Android, they work with a manufacturer of smartphones or tablets as well as a processor manufacturer to create a hero device to host a completely vanilla (otherwise known as totally nude, clean) version of their software. The most recent examples of this come in the Nexus S, out for sale now on three carriers across the USA working with Google's latest smartphone OS, Android 2.3 Gingerbread. For tablets, there's the Motorola XOOM, available as both a Wi-fi only device and a Verizon-carried device featuring Google's latest tablet-based mobile OS, Android 3.0 Honeycomb. Though the XOOM isn't technically following the naming scheme, each Google Android hero phone is part of the "Nexus" line, the next of these set to feature the Android system to tie handsets and tablets together in one: Ice Cream Sandwich. While we still do not know the Android number (2.4 or 4.0), we have a collection of details on this device that's sure to get you salivating.

Google Wallet Activation Confirmation spotted early in San Francisco [and New York]

Google Wallet Activation Confirmation spotted early in San Francisco [and New York]

It appears that at least one coffee shop has decided to forgo the big bang reveal of today's launch of Google Wallet by placing their official "tap here" signs on their Vivo paypass-capable machines. All you've got to do is Tap and pay with your NFC-enabled credit card OR your smartphone using Google Wallet - adding that you should simply go to Google.com/wallet for more information if you're not already in the know. We know from earlier today that the launch is very likely for later today and of course that the NFC-based mobile money service will be popping up imminently one way or another.
