NASA does some of the best work out of any public agency in the United States. Unfortunately, they are constantly defunded and must work within strict constraints.

Until now, Google has chosen one manufacturer to collaborate with and create a spec phone for new versions of Android. In 2010, HTC and Google created the first of these smartphones, the Nexus One. For the next two years Samsung was the chosen manufacturer, creating the Nexus S and the new Galaxy Nexus. These phones were often then only devices …
Google has announced some changes to how it offers the Nexus One mobile device. Due to a disappointing turnout to its web store, Google is expanding the retail availability of the device.

As interesting alternate timelines go, the idea of a cell phone having been built by a different company doesn’t exactly rank up there with JFK surviving his trip to Dallas.

The Federal Communications Commission recently began an inquiry into exorbitant early termination fees in mobile phone carriers’ contracts. The investigation began when Verizon raised its early termination fee to $350 (from $175) for smartphones.
Arguably the biggest news in the tech industry so far this year, has been Google’s launch of the Nexus One smartphone. The company rocked the mobile space when it announced that it would be selling the device on its own without the need of a carrier contract (although such contracts are available).
Google’s given its presentation, tech reviewers have had their say, and, after months of buildup, the Nexus One should soon start appearing in the real world. So how – in a sales sense – will it fare? According to a Barclays Capital analyst, the Nexus One will be a rather hot item.
