Comparison of Nexus One & iPhone

The long wait for the Android OS phone is finally out. Higher specs are found in comparison the iPhone as you can see below. The greatest advantage is the removal SD card up to 32 G. Great 5.0 Mega Pixels Camera and great Video capture resolution and high frame rate. The battery is removal and has a longer talk time of 7 hours compared to iPhone of 5 hours.

Apple iPhone doesnt allow multi-tasking which is backward but the Nexus One allows that. This show confidence on the stablity of the OS and power of the processor.

Iphone has over 130 ooo applications but Nexus One has about 20,000 at this moment. Maybe we have to look into the quality of the applications rather than the numbers 🙂

Unfortunately, is not available yet in the part of the world. So I will not compare on the plans.

iPhone 2G A2DP enable – stereo wireless Bluetooth streaming

iPhone 2G stereo wireless Bluetooth streaming
I have recently found a new application that enables wireless stereo streaming of iPhone 2Gusing A2DP profile. The application can be easily installed via Cydia through source. Once installed, just run the application, switch on A2DP and reboot. Go to Setting>General>Bluetooth and pair your stereo headset. If you look on the screenshot, the volume slider at the lower screen has been replaced by the wireless headset name and with a bluetooth logo on the right.

Wikipedia Definition – Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP)
This profile defines how high quality audio (stereo or mono) can be streamed from one device to another over a Bluetooth connection. For example, music can be streamed from iphone to a wireless headset or car audio or from a laptop/desktop to a wireless headset.
A2DP was initially used in conjunction with an intermediate Bluetooth transceiver that connects to a standard audio output jack, encodes the incoming audio to a Bluetooth-friendly format, and sends the signal wirelessly to Bluetooth headphones that decode and play the audio. Bluetooth headphones, especially the more advanced models, often come with a microphone and support for the Headset (HSP), Hands-Free (HFP) and Audio/Video Remote Control (AVRCP) profiles
