I thought it was about time for another post about Nexus Revamped Live Wallpaper Pro as a follow up to this post.

Following the original release many updates have gone by and I have received numerous emails with feedback and suggestions which are very much appreciated. Several additional features have been added and there are many more on the way.

Changes

  • more themes for background and particles
  • White nexus theme due to popular demand (thanks for the emails)
  • improved performance (still optimising, future upgrades will be even better)
  • Option to change tail length
  • Seperated single-color and multi-color backgrounds/particle colors (more to come soon!)
  • preliminary support for smaller screens

Short story: I received a free Nexus One (HTC) from Google for having an application on the android market with over 5000 downloads and a rating above 3.5 (For Counter-Strike 1.6 soundboard)

Back Story

Got a questionable email from Google (02/03/2010 23:47):

Subject: Device Seeding Program for Top Android Market Developers
From: android-market-seeding@google.com

Due to your contribution to the success of Android Market, we would like to present you with a brand new Android device as part of our developer device seeding program. You are receiving this message because you’re one of the top developers in Android Market with one or more of your applications having a 3.5 star or higher rating and more than 5,000 unique downloads.

In order to receive this device, you must click through to this site, read the terms and conditions of the offer and fill out the registration form to give us your current mailing address so that we can ship your device.

You will receive either a Verizon Droid by Motorola or a Nexus One. Developers with mailing addresses in the US will receive either a Droid or Nexus one, based on random distribution. Developers from Canada, EU, and the EEA states (Norway, Lichtenstein), Switzerland, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Singapore will receive a Nexus One. Developers with mailing addresses in countries not listed above will not receive a phone since these phones are not certified to be used in other countries.

We hope that you will enjoy your new device and continue to build more insanely popular apps for Android!

Thanks,

NOTE: You have received this mandatory email to notify you about an important update to the status of your Android account.

Initially I thought this was a scam, and searched the internet to check. Thankfully I came across a thread in Google forums of other people also sceptical about this email however it turned out to be legitimate (also confirmed by romainguy and others on twitter)

I then got a confirmation (06/03/2010):

Subject:Android Market Device Seeding Program Confirmation
From: Android Market Device Seeding Program

Dear Matthew,
We’ve received your information for the Android Market Device Seeding Program and have successfully validated the Google Order Number from your developer account.
Your information will now be sent to our shipping partner for order processing. Just to confirm, the information we received from you was:
Matthew Rollings

If you need to make any changes to your information above, please contact us at android-market-seeding@google.com as soon as possible. Otherwise, you should receive your phone in 2-4 weeks!
On behalf of the Android team,
Thanks, and happy coding!

I then received phone the phone on 29/04/2010 ~11:10. This is a lot later (3 weeks and 6 days) than the 2-4 weeks estimated for delivery, however this is believed to have been the fault of the shipping company Google were using.
