Today at a press event in California, Google officially announced the Nexus One Android phone. The Nexus One was designed in partnership with HTC. HTC CEO Peter Chou confirmed that the Nexus One has a 3.7-inch AMOLED display with HVGA (480 x 800) resolution and 1GHz Snapdragon processor. The Nexus One blends both the HTC experience and Google experience. It has a trackball with multi-color notification LED, as well as light and proximity sensors, compass and GPS. Other specs include inline noise cancellation: two mics, front and back, which enables nose suppression. Custom engraving on the lower bezel and measurements of 22.5mm in thickness, with weight coming in at 130g. It also has a 5 megapixel camera with LED flash. The Nexus One runs on Android 2.1. The Nexus One has "living wallpaper," that users can interact with. It's dynamic and moving, and continues to move underneath my personalization. Tap on the water and it ripples. There are five homescreens for personalization on the Nexus One. The Nexus One is also the first to showcase Android's new 3D framework in the Android platform. The app launcher is now 3D and resembles a vertical ribbon or scroll wheel. Other new features include a re-worked image gallery, which now automatically groups photos by date and location, and will sync with Picasa web albums in the background. In Android 2.1, Google has voice-enabled every text field across the entire platform. Google also demonstrated Google Earth for Android. Google indicated that the Nexus One -- which it terms a "superphone" -- will be the first in a class of similarly-capable devices. The device is available starting today from a Google-hosted web store or from wireless network operators. It will cost $529 unlocked, or $179 from T-Mobile to start. It will be available from Verizon and its partner Vodafone later in 2010.
