Nexus One

The Nexus One is the Google Phone launched on January 5th, 2010. The phone is sold at google.com/phone and it will be soon available at T-Mobile.

The phone runs Android software on a Qualcomm 1 GHz Snapdragon chip, has a super high-resolution OLED touchscreen, is thinner than the iPhone, has no keyboard, and two mics. The mic on the back of the phone helps eliminate background noise, and it also has a “weirdly” large camera for a phone. And if you don’t like the touchscreen keyboard, a voice-to-text feature is supposed to let you dictate emails and notes by speaking directly into the phone.
