The much rumored, exceedingly hyped and anxiously awaited Mac App Store has just went live, and is now accessible through Mac OS X machines, particularly through version 10.6.6 of Snow Leopard, this launch finally brings the iOS similar application market and puts it in the hands of millions of Mac OS X users worldwide.
The very first Android phone hit the market in November 2008. Just over two years later, Android’s vision of openness has spurred the development of more than 100 different Android devices. Today, more than 200,000 Android devices are activated daily worldwide. The volume and variety of Android devices continues to surpass our wildest expectations—but we’re not slowing down.
Today, we’re pleased to introduce the latest version of the Android platform, Gingerbread, and unveil the next Android device from the Nexus line of mobile products—Nexus S. And for developers, the Gingerbread SDK/NDK is now available as well.
* 1 GHz Cortex A8 (Hummingbird) processor
* 16GB of built-in iNAND flash memory
* 4-inch Super AMOLED Contour Display curved glass screen
* 5 megapixel rear camera and front-facing VGA camera
* Near Field Communication (NFC)
* Assisted GPS (A-GPS)
Nexus S is the lead device for the Gingerbread/Android 2.3 release; it’s the first Android device to ship with the new version of the Android platform. We co-developed this product with Samsung—ensuring tight integration of hardware and software to highlight the latest advancements of the Android platform. As part of the Nexus brand, Nexus S delivers what we call a “pure Google” experience: unlocked, unfiltered access to the best Google mobile services and the latest and greatest Android releases and updates.
Take a look at our backstory video for more on the vision behind this product and to understand why we think “a thousand heads are better than one”:
Nexus S is the first smartphone to feature a 4” Contour Display designed to fit comfortably in the palm of your hand and along the side of your face. It also features a 1GHz Hummingbird processor, front and rear facing cameras, 16GB of internal memory, and NFC (near field communication) hardware that lets you read information from NFC tags. NFC is a fast, versatile short-range wireless technology that can be embedded in all kinds of everyday objects like movie posters, stickers and t-shirts.
Gingerbread is the fastest version of Android yet, and it delivers a number of improvements, such as user interface refinements, NFC support, a new keyboard and text selection tool, Internet (VoIP/SIP) calling, improved copy/paste functionality and gyroscope sensor support.
FarmVillage is going to be available on Mixi, which is the top Japanese social network. But it will only be available for mobile ‘feature-phones’ — there’s no web-based version, at least for now, which could impact adoption. Update: Actually, most people access Mixi via their mobile phones, so this may not matter as much. The release is the first from Zynga Japan, the social gaming company’s joint venture with Softbank that was announced over the summer (in addition to a Softbank investment of $150 million).
However, there is a downside to this, as currently, no web version of FarmVillage is present. The game will be available through Mixi, which happens to be a Japanese social network. The games will be accessible through mobile feature-phones, which is not surprising as majority of Mixi users, access the social network through their mobile phones rather than a proper computer.
FarmVillage is the first release by Zynga Japan, which happens to be a joint venture between the social gaming company and Softbank, which had provided considerable investment. This launch is the latest update of the international expansion that Zynga is doing, as the company has previously launched Texas Poker in traditional Chinese this summer, and plans on launching CityVille in English, French, Italian, German, and Spanish languages altogether.
The FarmVillage launch is actually the first time Zynga has internationally launched a game’s initial release. Would this game be able to dominate the way FarmVille has done? Let us know in your comments below.
