Nexus One, Google & World Domination

What you see in my post title is synonymous. Google is taking the mobile world by storm first with Android and now, the Nexus One. Competition often leads to innovative products, with consumers standing to gain with their spoils from the bloody aftermath of corporate marketing.

And right now, Nexus One is live. Currently launching in UK, US, Singapore and Hong Kong as test markets, you can purchase your very own Nexus One here, contrary to previous statements that the phone will only be available on an by-invitation basis.

On Google’s website for Nexus One, you are able to click on the icons to see how each app works as well as a 3D tour of the phone. I am most excited with the Maps app as Google flexed their prowess to show us the next level turn-by-turn navigation complete with what seems to be street view coupled with layers.

Google has organized a press conference for Nexus One, with the hardworking Engadget team updating on location. Engadget has already given us lots of yummy information where every morsel is licked clean by Android fanboys, most important being the Nexus One review.

At a glance, here’s Nexus One’s specs:

  • Android 2.1
  • 11.5mm thick
  • 512MB RAM, 512MB ROM, 4GB microSD in-box expandable to 32GB
  • 5 megapixel camera with mechanical AF and LED flash
  • HSPA 900 / 1700 / 2100, 7.2Mbps down and 2Mbps up
  • 3.7-inch WVGA AMOLED display

Here’s a nice list of reviews from those privileged enough to give Nexus One a go (updated as and when):
