With a couple of days to go before the much awaited Google Event on January 5, where Google is about to launch its highly anticipated Nexus One phone, the lucky folks at Engadget got hold of the phone and are now running full unboxing photos, first impressions and a nice video demo.
Just by looking at the photos alone, you’d see that the Nexus One certainly looks pretty cool, not too industrial looking as some HTC smartphones are and yet not too classicly artsy than the iPhone. I dunno about you, but I still prefer the shiny and glossy back finish of the iPhone.
Still, the Nexus One is a class of its one. And if looks do not really matter that much to you, you’d certainly love the phone’s overall appearance.
Technically speaking of course, the Nexus One stand out on its own with Android 2.1 OS, 1GHz Snapdragon CPU, 3.7-inch touchscreen display, 512 MB ROM, 512MB of RAM, 4GB microSD card plus proximity sensor, accelerometer, light sensor, 5MP camera with LED flash.
The Nexus On also has this live wallpaper that interacts with what you are doing with the Phone. While this may be annoying but still a nice “new” touch on touchscreen phone features.
Finally Engadget noted that while the Nexus One is a pretty good Android phone, it still is not as fast as they would expect it to be.
Now, I can’t wait for January 5 to know when this Google phone is really coming out.
