Android 2.3.4 About to Roll Out to Nexus S, Available for Download Now
The release of a new version of the Android operating system brings with it a new base on which to find cutting-edge ROMs for almost all devices. Gingerbread 2.3.4 is the latest to be announced – an incremental update, which will of course first be rolled out over the air to Google’s flagship Nexus S before finding its way onto other recent devices (and naturally to less recent phones through custom ROMs). An update for the Nexus One won’t be far behind.
Among minor fixes, the update is set to bring native video calling functionality (through the Google Talk app, which will also see the introduction of voice chat) to the platform, which will be usable whether on a mobile data or Wi-Fi connection.
The source code for 2.3.4 has already been pushed to the Android Open Source Project (AOSP), so eager developers should head that way if they want to get the goods. If you own a Nexus S, visit this thread to find a download link for the update if you’re already running GRI40. Keep checking the XDA forums to find out when your favourite ROM is updated to the latest version.

HTC has just released three new blind test adverts comparing app loading speed, audio and selfies. Whilst you are surely astounded that HTC won every time, the tests were incredibly biased and their release shows something concerning about the company and how they are performing in the current market. One of the many reasons companies tend to utilize blind trials is when they feel that their product is comparable or better than its competitors. This leads to the assumption...
