Google Nexus One
16 March 2010
Summary: AT&T users can buy it unlocked but will be limited to EDGE speeds. The good news is that the Nexus One is coming out in Verizon trim this spring, with an AT&T version on tap, too. Having this phone on a more capable network would push the Nexus One up in value. Still, as is, even with its little foibles, the Nexus One is clearly the best Android-phone yet.
Pros: Great OLED screen; replaceable battery; good call quality; infinitely customizable.
Conclusion: Google and HTC have a winner with the Nexus One, the "be all that you can" Android smartphone. Google spec-d out a top of the line phone and at the moment, it is the one to beat among Android phones. The Moto Droid comes in a close second with a similar user experience but a weaker though still capable CPU and a lesser camera. Indeed, the Nexus One is a "super phone", but it's not the phone that destroys all others.
Pros: Attractive, fast, large AMOLED display, latest Android OS straight from the source.
Cons: Pricey unless you can score one with a contract on T-Mobile.
Is the hype warranted for the hotly anticipated Google smartphone?

Summary: The Nexus One smartphone isn't as revolutionary as Google might have you believe, but it remains an excellent smartphone regardless. The Android platform is only going to get better and the Nexus One's excellent display and sleek hardware are a winning combination.
Pros: Great design, build quality, excellent display, fast, removable battery, Android 2.1 feels polished, updated home screen
Cons: No advanced audio/multimedia options, touch keys not always responsive, screen hard to see in sunlight
Excerpt: The coveted "Google phone" launches in the UK on April 30 2010, but HTC's Google Nexus One isn't quite the superphone that Google intimated it would be. Updated April 29 2010. It lacks some valuable features - like multitouch and Outlook calendar syncing - that we've seen on competing models, and the Android keyboard can be difficult to use.
Excerpt: The coveted "Google phone" is finally on sale in the US, and Google is now shipping the Nexus One to the UK (albeit just the unlocked version). However, before you rush out and trade in our iPhones, know that this isn't quite the superphone that Google intimated it would be. It lacks some valuable features (like multitouch and Outlook calendar syncing) that we’ve seen on competing models, and the Android keyboard can be difficult to use.
