Google Phone is called the Nexus One

Nexus One Concept

It’s just about confirmed now: Google will sell its own phone, built by HTC and named the Nexus One.

It will sell the Google Phone online and unlocked, so you’ll need to buy your cellular service separately. The entire user experience is designed by Google, according to the WSJ. It may resemble the HTC Passion, pictured.

Here are the details so far:
Software: Android 2.1

– Hardware: HTC

– Specs (according to Jason Howell): Capactive touch screen, on screen keyboard only, thin, scroll ball, and animated desktop wallpaper

– Launch date: Rumored January 2010

– Tweets describe it as “an iPhone on beautifying steroids.”

– Google designed the entire user experience

– Google will sell the phone online, unlocked

– Google is “dogfooding” the Google Phone and has given it to employees all over the world to test it.

    Don’t have much need for Nexus phone at the moment.

    Seems like HTC and Google tackling Apple and the iPhone.

    You posted on mu blog that Google is taking over the world (in jest) but when you see things like this. You have to wonder

    Hi Tech Guia,
    Do you have any idea when the phone will be available? It will be interesting to see how many people will migrate from iPhone because I hear that AT&T’s service is not the greatest.
