The Google phone Nexus One is official

6 January 2010 by
Leaked specifications and previews of the Nexus One have been available online for some time now. The mobile phone was not officialy announced before yesterday.

Nexus One is a Google branded mobile phone manufactured by HTC. HTC has made the hardware in assosiation with Google while the operating system is Android 2.1. Android is an open source mobile OS partly developed by Google, now managed by the Open Handset Alliance which consist of a group of 47 mobile companies.

Nexus OneThe Nexus One Specifications is a high-end device with good features on paper, but it's not revolutionary. To mention a few goodies:

  • 3.7 inch 400x800 pixel Amoled display,
  • 5MP camera and LED flash,
  • 1400mAh battery with 10 hours talktime and 290 hours standby time,
  • A new and fast 1Ghz Snapdragon processor from Qualcomm
  • Android 2.1 OS
  • 512 MB RAM, 4GB microSD card
  • GSM/EDGE 850/900/1800/1900 and UMTS/HSDPA network bands
  • Wi-Fi
  • Bluetooth
  • AGPS
  • Accelerometer and digital compass.  

It does not have front camera for Video calls and QWERTY keyboard so it might not be for everyone. The final reviews will give us the verdict.

A handfull of manufactures are already shipping Android powered phones. HTC with their G1, Hero, Magic, Motorola with Cliq and Droid, Samsung I7500 Galaxy and soon the Xperia X10 by Sony Ericsson. These are all selling for USD 525 to 625 so the Nexus One will be one of the most affordable Android devices available.

I am really sad guys :( . I like this phone very much and I ask my friend in USA to buy 2qty for me and my other friend. While, I read this thread I knew it doesn't have a secondary camera. How come in this advanced-tech-world a smart phone without a secondary camera? I checked many sites to know its features, but I didn't check if it has a secondary cam as it's always there with any newly launched mobiles. Does anyone have this HTC Google nexus one?

The v2.1 better than the v1.5 of the Xperia X10. Will it have autofocus, touch focus or face detection and stuff?
