Personally I think the task switcher is essential to any smartphone, it could let you know what actually are running tasks in background and you could switch it very quickly. The original Recent Apps feature in Gingerbread (press long on home button) doesn’t really meet my requirement to switch the operating task. It is important to user to switch the task quickly in a multitasking smartphone. So far, I found perfect task switcher is the best among all.
Yes, another update OS Android 2.3.3 on Nexus S and Nexus One thru OTA, but I still haven’t receive any update notification yet. It could be take few weeks to notify for the OS update. Android 2.3.3 is still known as Gingerbread. So, what is the fixes in these update? Probably the well known random reboot problem. Let’s see what are the improvements.

What is Twakon? Tawkon monitors and analyzes your mobile phone radiation so you can “talk on” as usual and receive smart prompts to avoid radiation just when you need to. Wawkon was created to give users information & tools to avoid mobile phone radiation as much as possible, with minimal disruption to normal phone usage.

Oh God, finally I received OTA notification to update my Nexus S from 2.3.1 to 2.3.2. I had read all the updates around on the gingerbread update on Nexus S but I still haven’t any yet. I did read many of the articles complaining the sms bugs in 2.3.1. So, the minor gingerbread is to fix the sms issue. This is the first time I update my Nexus S, I felt a bit excited =)
There is 2 ways to update the android OS, via OTA (over-the-air) or download and install it manually. I prefer the former because i do not need to do anything but just click install button =) Kind of noob huhh?!
Second way is MORE complicated. Need a manual installation. Actually, it is not that difficulty =)
Step 1: Download the official Android 2.3.2 update for Nexus S from here.
Step 2: Copy this file to the root of your SD card. (Nexus S users no longer need to change the file name to update.zip)
Step 3: Now power off your phone, hold down the “Volume Up” button, followed by the “Power” button to turn it back on.
Step 4: Now use the volume rocker buttons to navigate to “Recovery” option and then select it using “Power” button.
Step 5: Now when you see an exclamation mark –like image on the screen, hold down the “Power” button followed by “Volume Up” button.
Step 6: At this stage you should be presented with Android’s Recovery menu. Now select the option to apply the update from SD card, followed by selecting the actual update “.zip” file using the “Power” button.
Step 7: That’s it. Wait for the phone to complete the update process. Once its done, select “reboot system now” option to reboot your phone into Android 2.3.2 Gingerbread.
I hope I don’t see the sms bug anymore in the latest Gingerbread update. Hurray!! Update is completed!!
Another tutorial to teach you how to import phone contacts to your Nexus S or Android phone (I believe the steps to import to android phone is the same). This is totally simple and just for beginners =) However, it is really useful to beginners, at least useful to me =)
Firstly, I thought it is easy to access through my Nexus S SD card through USB-micro USB cable. Plug the USB cable to the PC and the other end definitely connect to Your Nexus S. Easy and simple, but I still couldn’t access to the SD card even though I saw the removal drive has been appear in My Computer. Well, actually it was really extremely simple but because of the unfamiliarization of Android OS, it took me few more seconds. So, a quick and simple entry here to share how to make access to your Nexus S USB storage like a normal external memory stick.
