Merry Christmas all

I'm currently on vacation in Hong Kong, that is why this blog has been silent for a while. I will be back next year. Until then, I wish you all a Merry Christmas. Hope Santa will bring some cool stuff to all of you.

I just got a tweet from Santa, and he's bringing me an iPad. I'm so excited.

Dear readers,  thank you for your Support and again, have a great Christmas.

I'm posting this from my Nexus One.

Facebook app for Android now supports chat.

Indeed, Facebook app for Android got a manual update this morning that brings the long awaited chat functionality. This update also contains push notifications and some bug fixes.  Unfortunately, push notifications only works with Chat and other functions of the app still relies on preset intervals.

Chat is a welcome addition and can be downloaded free from Android Market.

Google introduces Nexus S with Gingerbread.

It's now official, Gingerbread is officially out on the Nexus S. Nexus One owners are still waiting for the OTA update and so far, no notifications have popup on my phone. The Nexus S has some nice specs, not specifically impressive:

A 1Ghz Hummingbird processor.
Front and rear facing cameras.
16GB of internal memory.
4" inch display.

"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."

I wonder why they did not just call the phone the Nexus Two? The new device will reach online store on December 16. Until then, here's a couple of videos until it becomes available.

Update (via Techcrunch): I found the answer to my question about the Nexus S name. While it was obvious at some point that the new Nexus would be the Nexus 2, Samsung chose to keep the Nexus but not the "2", because "We don't like being number two." Makes sense :)
