Yet Another Galaxy S Feature Missing From The Samsung Nexus S: Gorilla Glass

Given the incredible durability (and entertainment) that Gorilla Glass has provided the Galaxy S phones with, one might think that Samsung would be eager to carry the feature over to the Nexus S. Unfortunately, like 720p video recording, LED notifications (which are available on some Galaxy S variants but not others), and a microSD card slot, Gorilla Glass has not been included in the world's first Gingerbread phone.

The omission was probably necessitated by the curved glass that covers the phone's mug, but that doesn't make it any less disappointing, especially since the effects of the so-called "Contour Display" are barely noticeable (from what I hear).

Some Details Of Notion Ink's Proprietary "Genesis" Market Found In Developer T&Cs

Earlier today, we received a tip regarding Notion Ink's yet-to-be-released developer program for its "Genesis" app platform. Indeed, while the developer homepage remains relatively useless, the leaked developer program registration page the tipster sent us does appear to be legitimate and even comes complete with terms and conditions.

Update: As some of you so eloquently pointed out, the developer program was indeed active at one point, and the registration has now been closed (at least partially, apparently).

HTC To Start Rolling Out Froyo To European Wildfires This Week, Rest Of The World By February 2011

While the owners of HTC Wildfires have known for a while now that their devices would be eventually receiving Froyo, and that it probably wouldn't happen until Christmas, they were still secretly hoping HTC wouldn't take over 6 months to accomplish the feat. At least it looks like the company is keeping its word, which is refreshing nowadays, to say the least.

Starting this week, HTC will be rolling out Froyo to European Wildfire variants, with the rest of the world following sometime between now and February 2011.

Sprint Launches WiMax Network Along The Colorado Front Range And In Bridgeport, Connecticut

Aspen, loads of snow, and now coverage from Sprint and Clearwire's WiMax network... yeah, Coloradans pretty much have it all. Just over an hour ago, the nation's third largest carrier announced that its 4G network is now live along Colorado's Front Range (which includes such cities as Denver, Boulder, Fort Collins, and Greeley) as well as in Bridgeport, Connecticut.

Sprint's already got two mighty fine devices - the HTC EVO 4G and the Samsung Epic 4G - on its WiMax network, and if the Shift 4G is as good as it looks, the carrier's subscriber base could be set to increase even more than it already has.

LG Optimus 2X Shows Up On Swedish Online Store Bearing Extravagant Pricetag

The Scandinavian online retailer CDON.com has been spotted harbouring a certain "telefon med Dualcore processor" by one of Swedroid's observant readers. LG's dual-core forerunner may not be the only Tegra II kid in town, but it sure looks like it's going to be the first to make its way into some frigid, Nordic hands.
