Google introduced Nexus One, its first mobile phone, on Jan 5. It may be a strong competitor to other smartphones, especially Apple's iPhone.
Nexus One is result of cooperation between Google and HTC, the Taiwanese electronics company with experience designing smartphones. During the show at Google headquarters in Mountain View, California, Peter Chou, HTC chief executive, said that the new device pushed the limits of what is possible in smart phone business.
Nexus One is using Android software, the latest version 2.1 which is the same one used in Droid smart phones that were recently introduced. The phone is equipped with a 1 GHz processor Qualcomm Snapdragon which will make the device theoretically compatible with any GSM network around the world.
Mario Queiroz, Google vice president of product management, said:
You can take out your SIM card from any provider and put it in the phone.
Nexus features huge speech command possibilities as users should be able to speak emails, short text messages or Internet search queries. It will allow users to send a email without touching the keyboard. It includes GPS and works with Google Maps system providing turn-by-turn driving instructions.
The 3.7-inch display offering a 480 by 800 pixels resolution and 5-megapixel camera will meet the requirements of almost all users. Nexus has 3-D capability including interactive wallpaper or 3-D visualisation of any photo.
Nexus One will be available to US customers through the Google web store where customers can purchase the phone without any contract. Customers in the United States will have also possibility to purchase phone with 2 years contract with T-Mobile for better price.
There are expected paired versions with companies Verizon in the United States and also with Vodafone in Europe later in this year.
