The Google Nexus One (aka Google Phone) is Google's early 2010 flagship Google Android device showing off Android 2.1's capabilities. The hardware was engineered by HTC and Qualcomm, and it was launched on January 5, 2010. The Nexus One is sold either unlocked ($529) or subsidized with a T-Mobile contract ($179). Instead of being sold in traditional retail outlets, the touch screen phone sells directly to customers through the Google website ( At the time of launch, only a GSM version is available, whose 3G radio supports the AWS spectrum (used by T-Mobile in the USA and WIND in Canada) and the European 3G bands. At a later time in 2010, a CDMA version for Verizon is planned, and the device will debut in Europe under Vodafone. With Google Goggles (image-based search using the phone's camera), every text field in the OS being enabled for voice recognition, a 3D user interface with 5 homescreens, live wallpapers, haptic feedback, Google Maps Navigation, Android's excellent cloud integration with Google services, WiFi, GPS, accelerometer, proximity sensor, light sensor, digital compass, hi-resolution (800x480px) AMOLED display, 5MP camera with LED flash, noise cancellation microphone, and the Qualcomm Snapdragon (ARM v7 instruction set) processor at 1GHz, Google believably touts it as a 'superphone'.
