Today in the un-scratchable part of Gizmodo's back we call Remainders, we've got a Tron-inspired Android phone, some more videos of the Google Nexus One in action, and more (well, one more)!
OPPO Android Concept Is All Tronned Out So this is a pretty interesting-looking Android phone concept, what with the neon teal backlighting and spacious keyboard and all. It's supposedly due for a 2010 release, although we'll believe that when it happens, and hopefully it'll actually be running Android by then - it looks like somebody accidentally Photoshopped the WebOS dialler onto this thing. It's in Remainders because nobody really got all that excited about it; it's weird enough to be catch your eye, but not enough to make you want one. [Ubergizmo]
Why Can't These People Take a Decent Video of the Nexus One? So TheNexusOne has been posting videos of their namesake Android phone, and while that would normally deserve a bigger post, these are really just teaser videos - when we get a real, comprehensive video tour of the Nexus One, we'll be sure to let you know. But for now, we've got a video of the incoming call screen, which looks exactly like it does on Android 2.0.1, we've got the bootup sequence we've seen before, and a 15-second clip of the Tron-like (there's a Tron theme in Remainders tonight, it seems) animated wallpaper.
