Nexus One Begins to Appear in Third-Party Retail Stores
If you wondered what Google meant when they said the Nexus One would be getting “more retail availability”, just take a quick look at the image above. That’s right, it’s an advertisement for a Nexus One sold through a retail channel! Oh my! When did this happen you might ask? Well, it appears wireless retailer and T-Mobile affiliate i Wireless has started offering a number of Android devices in the past few days, including the Nexus One. I Wireless is now selling the phone for $299.95 on contract after rebate — a good bit more than the $179 Google charges, but in return, it looks like you can select just about any plan T-Mobile offers (Google restricts you to the Even More 500 plan to get the subsidy). This is a pretty good deal if you ask me.
So, anyone want to head over the i Wireless and pick one up?

Remember that post a couple weeks ago about the Blackberry Playbook possibly being able to run Android apps? Well, if true, it looks like the Playbook won’t be the only guy in town. Open Handset Alliance member Myriad has just announced a tool called Alien Dalvik, which is Android’s Dalvik VM ported to other systems. This may sound like a bit of abracadabra to you, but it means you’ll be able to run Android apps on any platform, and without a disturbing lag. Alien Dalvik will run the majority of Android apps, but for the very device-dependent apps, there’s an add-on for the Android SDK.
