Nimbuzz Skype Call on Nexus One

Google phone Nexus One in South Africa?

January 14th, 2010


One of the big questions everyone is asking is when the Nexus One will be available in South Africa. News24 reported that it will be nowhere soon.

I really don’t want to settle for that answer and looking at the specs (via and the live demo with Nimbuzz below I am sure you are at least interested. I want one, or at least play with one for a while !!

Google will soon be making street view available for South Africa…. imagine replacing your boring GPS maps for satellite images and street views of where you are going! And then there is Wave, which seems to have gone from a 15 footer to a 2 foot wave, but nonetheless highly anticipated by me at least.
