Google plans five Nexus phones and tablets for Jelly Bean
Google is planning not one but five Nexus phones and tablets, according to new reports. That's a whole line-up of sequels to the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, Nexus S and the original Google Nexus One to show off the next generation of Android.
Previously Google has worked with one manufacturer at a time to build a Nexus phone for each new update to the Android operating system. But the next update, Jelly Bean, will appear on a range of five phones and tablets built as many as five partner manufacturers, to be released in the US by the end of November.

this is good news for us consumers, more choices for us. I wonder kung sino yung 5 OEM's na gagawa ng Nexus devices this year. Samsung, HTC, Motorola, Sony & LG kaya?
^ Perhaps one from each ? I'm curious as to what specs these phones will have as I think Google is pushing for phones with competetive pricepoints. Also , will the Devices section of the Google Play store be opened for regions outside of the US, so that we can purchase from Google directly using our Google accounts ?

Google did not breach Oracle patents, a court has found
Google did not infringe patents owned by software developer Oracle, a jury in a California court found on Wednesday.
The Silicon Valley giants had fought over whether Google used Oracle's Java programming language in its Android mobile operating system.
Two weeks ago the same jury ruled that Google infringed Oracle's copyright, but could not agree whether Google's actions constituted "fair use".
The internet search giant maintains Android was built "from scratch".
Oracle sued Google in August 2010, saying Android infringed its intellectual property rights.

looks like Google scored big in here. pagnagkataon baka magbayad pa ang Oracle to Google for damges. open source kasi ang JAVA, pinagpipilitan pa ng Oracle, natalo tuloy sa lawsuit.
^ Yay for Google ! Not likely to happen but I'm hoping Fujitsu gets the chance to release a Nexus device, I really like their latest quadcore android phone (shown above, released only in Japan).
In general, okay po ba yung Android sa:

Dual-SIM Android phones are not exactly common, but that doesn't mean there's no demand. In fact, we've just got word that Alcatel has unleashed another such handset, the OT-985N Blaze, which is like a slightly beefed-up version of the OT Blaze Glory X 918N which was launched back in March.
In terms of looks, the OT-985N Blaze could be described as the OT Blaze Glory X 918N's twin although this one sports a better-looking Home button as well as what looks to be a rubberized back cover. And, just like the latter, it also sports a 650MHz processor, Android Gingerbread, and Bluetooth 3.0. However, the OT-985N Blaze comes with a larger 3.5-inch touchscreen and a 5-megapixel main camera. Wireless connectivity via 3G and Wi-Fi is also part of the mix as well.
With those improvements, it is no surprise that the OT-985N Blaze is more expensive at P7,999 (the OT Blaze Glory X 918N retails for P6,199). We'll see if the almost P2,000 increase is justified. In the meantime, you could check out the gallery below for photos of the OT Blaze Glory X 918N
Alcatel OT-985N Blaze Specs:
*Android 2.3 Gingerbread
*650 MHz Media Tek MT6573 processor
*512MB ROM (150MB accessible memory)
*3.5” 320×480 capacitive touch screen
*5MP rear camera
*VGA front-facing camera
*Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Wi-Fi hot spot
*Bluetooth 3.0, A2DP
*Micro SD card slot (up to 32GB)
*FM Radio with RDS
*61.84 x 116 x 12.15 mm
-Will definitely get this one and post personal reviews later!
Guys, pa suggest naman ng android phone na may malakas na ringtone for alerts?
Budget is 10,000 below, ireregalo ko sa lola ko, eh siyempre pag oldie, medyo mahina ang pandinig.
ang mahina for me na ringtone eh Iphone, napaka malumanay niya.
Need help, thanks
Ikuha mo siya ng at least 4.0" screen kasi sigurado malabo na din mata ng lola mo. Masyado maliit screen ng SE Live. You can get her any of the ff low-end, big screen phones:
SE Xperia X10
Pero kung okay pa naman ang sight and techie skills niya, okay na yang Live w/ Walkman. Meron yang "Sony xLOUD enhancement" kaya sigurado bulabog ang ringtone nyan.
"The main feature of the WT19i is the audio and being a ‘Walkman’ branded phone, you get Sony’s xLOUD enhancement which makes the audio a lot richer, louder and the bass punchier. The effect is easily felt through headphone and the speaker."
Mapapaindak pa siya sa "Super bass" ni Nicki Minaj.

^ Papi, natawa ako sa super bass kasi naiingit nga si lola sa mga android phones ng mga apo niya, eh lapit na birthday niya, yun na lang naisip ko, saka makutingting yun, kaya matiyaga niya mapagaaralan yan, haha.
Thank you sa mga suggestions Papi, titignan ko din yan, thank you so much ulit.
Kung gayon, go for the Live w/ Walkman. Gingerbread na OS nyan upgradeable to ICS 4.0 Makakapagsabayan si Lola sa mga apo niya sa Angry Birds at Instagram.
Apo: "Lola ang galing ng pagka-Instagram niyo dito sa picture niyo ni Lolo. Galing ng pagka-sepia niya."
Lola: "Ano yung Instagram?"
Lola: "Ano yung Instagram?"
Alam kaya ni lola ko yan Papi , she's one of those lola techies.
Kung alam niya yung "2 girls 1 cup" maniniwala akong techie siya.
Apo: "Lola click nyo itong link..."
Lola: "Ano ba yang 2 girls 1 cup na yan?"
Apo: "Basta i-click nyo na..."
Lola: "Ayoko baka rickroll na naman 'to"
Apo: "Hindi rickroll yan, that's so 2005"
Lola: "Ipost ko na lang sa FB ko para iba magsabi sa akin kyng ano 'to"
^ Papi, sabi ko techie, hindi malibog
Jelly Bean is out aka Android 4.1. The newest this is just a minor update, hindi ito katulad ng Gingerbread to ICS na major yung update. here'e some of the new things on Android 4.1. as usual, Nexus devices will get the update first.
What Is New In Android Jelly Bean?
The new version of Google's Android operating system is called Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. It's faster, has a cleaner home screen, a new camera app, much better notifications, and what could be a killer app: Google Now. This is what's new in Jelly Bean:
It smartly helps you depending on where you are located
Google Now is going to be a killer feature. It gives your Android phone complete awareness of your whereabouts and keeps you updated about any information you may need at any point during the day, depending on your location. It seems quite smart.
If you are on route in the subway, for example, it will tell you when the next train is coming. If you search for a flight, it will create a card that would be constantly updated with flight information like gate, delays, or boarding time. If you go to a restaurant, it will offer you recommendations on the menu. This seems similar to some of the things Siri does on iOS, but it looks more useful to me, as it seems to anticipate situations based on where you are.
The cards are clearly designed, with a good layout, images and typography.
The apps update faster
This is great: when an app needs updating, it will not download the whole app. It will only download the parts of the app package that have changed. This is great for users, as the new apps will download faster and will use less bandwidth. In theory, this will help people to have all their apps updated at all time.
It's faster than ever
The new interface is ultra fast. The refresh rate is much higher than the previous version of the Android operating system, with a much better response time to your touch. Apparently, Google claims that their new software video architecture can save battery too by predicting where you are going to click next.
The entire Android interface—apps included—runs at 60 frames per second. Google ran a video on screen comparing Jelly Bean to Ice Cream Sandwich, the previous version of Android, and it makes the latter look like it is running in slow motion. We will have to try it, but it looks pretty impressive. In fact, Google is so excited about its smoothness that they call it Project Butter.
It will make your home screen look better
The home screen has been modified. It looks the same but it now helps the user to keep things organized. Now you can resize your widgets or move them around and everything on the screen will flow accordingly, keeping it all in order. In a way, the reordering is similar to Microsoft's Metro resizing on Windows Phone 8, without the tiling. Dismissing widgets is as easy as tossing them away.
You can type with your voice even while you are offline
There is a new offline voice typing engine, which will allow you to dictate text without the need of a connection to the internet. It will be launched only for US English at the beginning, but other languages will follow.
It has a nicer camera app
There's a new camera application that allows you to review your existing photos easily, even as you are taking a new one, without having to change into a review mode: just look at any previous photo by swiping with your finger the right, moving the active camera view out of the way. It's a cute feature, but I don't think it's too useful. I don't see myself looking at my previous photos while taking a new one.
Getting rid of an existing photo in this mode is also quite simple: swipe it up to toss it away. Cute again, and fast. The only problem I can see with this is that it doesn't ask you to confirm.
The new notifications are much better and richer than before
They have added images, live updates, and a lot more information, to notifications. They can also expand and collapse with a two finger gesture. Android was the first phone OS to introduce notifications and the new ones make Apple's look primitive now. They kind of remind me of Microsoft's live tiles.
The new search engine works like Siri
The new search engine works like Siri, accepting questions in natural language and answering them. The voice sounds much better than Siri, however.
The result screen is pretty nice too: it gives you a card with the answer for your question but, with a swipe of your finger to the right, you will see full Google search results.
When is it coming out?
It will be available in mid-July, with an over the air update for Galaxy Nexus, Motorola Xoom, and Nexus S.
