Google has been trying to push its own video codec, VP8, as a web standard, but Nokia has moved to block the plans. In a statement to FOSS Patents, Nokia said Google is forcing the adoption of its proprietary technology, which offers no advantages over existing, widely deployed standards such as H.264 and infringes Nokia’s intellectual property.
Google just announced an upcoming Android event which happens to be on the same day as Microsoft’s Windows Phone 8 event. We’ll probably see the new Nexus phone(s) or tablet(s). Do you think the timing was pure coincidence?
Here’s a demo of yapf for Windows Phone shown on a Nokia Lumia 800. How do you say it? yapf is a point-of-interest finder. You can use Google as the search engine. Users who don’t like Bing will like this app, but the new version 2.0 now also gives you the option to choose either one.
You might have heard of Pixelpipe, our favorite tool for uploading photos, videos, and other files to our favorite social sites. Today, they’ve released a completely different app that’s optimized for accessing multiple Google services. It’s currently in beta and they’re asking testers for feedback. Take a look at the quick video after the jump.
One of the latest additions to Gravity is the Google Reader integration. That’s right! Our favorite Twitter app for Symbian can now receive and manage updates for Google Reader. Go watch it in action.

I’ve been using the Google Nexus One in the past 30 days and have been really enjoying it. I’ll share my review of the Nexus One with lots of comparisons to Nokia’s current superphone, the Nokia N900.
Google announced on Tuesday that they are rolling out the ability to upload and store any type of file in Google Docs over the next few weeks. It’s cool that Nokia N900 users will be able to take advantage of this service directly from their device by using the Petrovich and Pixelpipe apps.
