Barometer HD App for Galaxy Nexus and Galaxy Note! [App of the Week]

Want a barometer on your Android smartphone? You can if you own a Galaxy Nexus or a Galaxy Note, both which come with a barometer chip.

This could be a great way to keep in touch with your local weather without relying on your local TV station.

As for me, this is going to work great as I like knowing the atmospheric pressure as I live near the ocean and love trying to guess the weather tomorrow.


Samsung Galaxy Nexus Announced!

You’ve probably heard this already (or at least someone probably told you last night or this morning), Google and Samsung has just announced the 3rd generation Nexus series after the Nexus One and S, the Galaxy Nexus!

The cream of the crop Galaxy Nexus comes with the latest Android 4.0 operating system, which touts cool features like face recognition unlock screen, merged OS with other Android tablet devices (meaning Android 4.0 can be used with phone or tablet), intellectual voice commands, Android Beam NFC-based mobile sharing, 1080P video camcorder with real-time morphing abilities, a whopping 4.65-inch AMOLED screen with 1280×800 pixel resolution (higher than any other smartphone on the planet), and Texas Instruments OMAP 4460 1.2Ghz dual-core processor.


Nexus Prime Launch Date! – November 3rd!

Nexus Prime launch date?  Although it’s not official by any means, insider sources say that it will be November 3rd.

Will you be getting one on launch date?

The idea I’m getting from official testers is that the screen and user experience is much better in the Nexus device, and the overall advantage is the presence of Ice Cream Sandwich (I’ve personally noted this to be true). But I’ve also been told by those who have tested it that the RAZR is very fast, smooth, and has a great battery life. The screen, although not quite up to Nexus, is a big improvement over the Bionic for those who didn’t like it. Verizon is very, very excited for both devices. I don’t get the feeling they’re “siding” with one over the other, but I can tell you that they never had a lot of confidence in the Bionic having a lot of staying power. Their decision to release the Bionic as is was more of a contractual obligation than a real belief in the product. They are much more invested in the RAZR.
