    If you feel like strapping a jet-pack to your shiny new Nexus S, the guys at XDA Developers have just the thing. 'Team Whiskey' developed what they call their Nexus S Trinity Kernel - Bionix NS1, that includes the following changes:
    • Tweaked voltages
    • Further build tweaks
    • Overclocked to 1.3GHz
    You read that right... 1.3GHz achieved! The only caveat is they currently don't have Bluetooth working, but if that's a non-issue for you and you don't mind the risk, you can check it out at this link.

    Im really surprised that there isnt more talk about this phone. The first with Gingerbread? If it wasnt on T-Mobile though, I would consider getting this phone.

    That's exactly the problem. The way T-Mobile treated Android after the G1 was pretty pathetic and they lost a lot of Android users because of it. Add their ~AT&T-quality network, and you lose even more Android users.

    What do you mean the way they treated Android? Bad marketing?

    T-Mobile doesn't have the money to spend on marketing that Big Red does... they could have never present the G1 in the same way VZW presented the Droid.

    I have a friend that still has her G1, she claims Tmobile isn't do bad. Everyone is waiting for Jan6 to see what comes out but this is a sleeper imo.

    I've got two buddies who recently picked up the MyTouch G4.... it's a slick device and T-Mobile's service (at least in our area) isn't too bad.

    The device itself is pretty slick and very fast.

    Ya... I don't get it. The Nexus phones would be huge if they were on Verizon. For some reason I think they put phones they don't really want to sell over on T-Mobile... LOL

    This is the downfall of this otherwise awesome phone. That its on t-mobil. Otherwise its an awesome phone built for development. Wide open no nonsense. Good work on the kernel. I hope this comes to verizon.

    Whats so special about 1.3GHz? Aren't there already some stable OC's for the DX around 1.35GHz?
