Nexus One a review after few weeks

Oh well, I had been using Google Nexus One for quite while by now.

So far, I am very happy with it… didn’t start rooting it yet.

first few minutes after turning it on.. its popped up a notification saying
Android 2.2 (Froyo) is ready to be installed. (as was already downloaded in the process!)
there are a lot of feature that is new for me..
ya lah.. migrating from my k530i sony ericsson .. into a “touchable” device.. hahaha.!

the screen looks like this.

yeah.. it’s multiple desktop too..

system info ..

then .. some app inside..

haha.. SMS scheduler !?

anyway these are few app that i had downloaded from market that seem very useful for me.

1. Astro File Manager.

2. Astro SMB Module Extension ( Plugin )

3. Connect Bot (SSH Client)
– the port forwarding feature also works and very useful
4. Terminal emulator.

first command to send was “ping”

then find ways to send ctrl-C .. hahaa..

.. have to hold the track ball and touch a capital “C” in android keyboard screen. voila !

5. Google Voice !!

6. App Brain
this one did a good job to synchronize the app list and also perform automatic reinstall of all downloaded app ..
after a “reset to factory default”. (personally tested once)

7. Gesture Search (search everything using gesture)

6. Google Reader
very useful indeed
– except it happened to cache 100 post per feed by default.. somehow slowing down during opening if you more than 10 feed .

10. Flash 10.1 !! ( this is the first app that I installed.!)

11. Terminal Emulator.
12. Fring
this was used to have video call support but with recent update.. no more video. *sigh*

13. Of course facebook for android.
14. APN on/off
– this to ammend the APN for mobile access. i think at some point of time will have fixed monthly data package of my mobile.
last week tested with a “Weekly Broadband – RM 20”.. and very useful as this one can behave as “wifi hotspot!”
so my wife can get her “phone” online too via my wifi ..
13. Wifi Connect ( this allow web login for wifi)
– tested at Mc D damansara damai.. spend a nice 30minute or so there. haha
14. Last FM ( not quite used to it yet as always left my earphone at home )
15. Navigator ( didn’t realized I was using this app until someone shows me to try google voice action “navigate to deluxe”? )

16. Of course google map and the latitude !!

well… that’s all for now..
p/s : sorry for the late update.. as I am quite distracted at the moment.. hehehe..

    Hi there would you mind stating which blog platform
    you’re working with? I’m looking to start my own blog
    in the near future but I’m having a difficult time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m
    looking for something unique. P.S Apologies
    for being off-topic but I had to ask!
