What About Google’s Nexus One?

by Maxi

Remember in the post before last I said that the Internet was pulling advertising from local TV stations and networks, causing problems? Well, lately Google has run into advertising problems of its own.

We know that Google is biiig and had to do something. They did. It’s called Nexus One, came out Tuesday. Now, I’m not much of a phone person but maybe you are and would like to check it out. Here it is:

  • You can buy the phone for $180 with a contract or $530 unlocked, leaving the phone open to other carriers
  • The Nexus One features text without typing. A voice-enabled keyboard allows users to send texts, e-mails, or Facebook updates by speaking into the phone.
  • It is a global-system device with a 3.7 inch touchscreen, 5 megapixel camera, Wi-Fi connectivity, an accelerometer and a compass.

This a comment I read in a review on Engadget:
The shape and size of the phone is absolutely fantastic; the Nexus One is nothing if not handsome. From its ultra-thin body to sleek, curved edges, the phone is absolutely lustworthy. Despite the minor niggles, HTC and Google have put together a pretty good-looking and feeling phone; it’s not without its faults but they’re few and far between.
