The coding cowboys over at XDA Developers have released a new software patch for the Nexus One, a patch which provides some added functionality… multitouch goodness in the native web browser. Now, the code does have a fairly large prerequisite, and one that will surely turn some folks off, your N1 has to be rooted in order to apply the patch. We have the video in all its pinch-and-zoom glory queued up for you after the break. And for those of you who are terminally-challenged, or lazy, this functionality is already available in the Dolphin browser, which can be found in the Android Market, no rooting required. More →
A leaked ROM over at xda-developers suggests that the Touch Pro2, codenamed Rhodium, may be headed to T-Mobile in the not-so-distant future. The ROM is for a device, RHOD21000, with the CID of T-MOB010 — the US country ID also used for the Dash and the Shadow — and has a target language listed as “USA”. The ROM has the usual Windows Mobile fare from both 6.1 and 6.5 including Facebook, YouTube, Opera, the HTC-specific game Teeter and even a MyFaves tab on TouchFLO 3D. So, T-Moblers, how sweet would that be? We’ll be sure to keep an ear to the ground at CTIA and see what we can dig up.
Update: Hit the jump for what appear to be live images of the T-Mobile branded Touch Pro2 headed to Tmo US.
