HTC Nexus One is the Google Phone?
This article contains unofficial information.
TechCrunch has received a Tweet from someone with the Google Phone and he passed along the URL of a game that works only on the Nexus One. If you have any other phone, it will redirect you to the standard Android homepage. The game is a fairly simple memory game with a holiday twist. Click on this link and you will see the rules for a quick second before being redirected. That is, unless you do have the Google Phone/Nexus One. In that case, have fun playing.

This is the same phone that was expected to hit Verizon (HTC Passion) but now its says that its a GSM phone soooo, dose this mean that it will not be available for Verizon? I hope not.....

I would rather have this phone with the snapdragon processor go to the GSM carriers and hope that Verizon gets the HD2 with it's snapdragon processor as well. I just feel that that is a better phone than this SEEMS.

@saneok Dude, those were rumors. I read the same rumors as you. As with all rumors, you have to take it with a grain of salt. And if you haven't seen the leaked HTC roadmap yet, the HTC passion/bravo is to be released in April/May.

If Verizon does end getting a new Android device like the Pssion in the coming months, do you think they will offer some sort of discount for upgrading to it if you bought the Droid? Thanks

I'm sorry, I'm having a hard time understanding why Droid users would want to already jump shit to a "better" Android device. The Droid is a very capable phone; tried and true. There's absolutely nothing wrong with it. Consider yourselves lucky Verizon customers, I'm on AT&T and can't find a device to upgrade my iPhone to.

theres a couple things up with these postings. ive been googling this nexus one every 8 hours since yesterday and a couple things seem contradictory. A. if you look at the x its the 4 windows colors. B. they say that they are selling it independent from any carriers... yet they are only releasing it on gsm. biased? or loop hole around the carriers device upgrade/ activation discount C if its truly and solely a google phone why draw a contract with an established company (erhm HTC) and share the glory when they could go the apple route and either comprise their own hard ware or contract a lesser known firm. D. theres some B.S. going around stating that the tweets are from apple to cause strife between google and the manufacturer's... its convoluted and confusing but its turning out to be an exciting drama. i hope that when the dust settles theres both a cdma and gsm version

idk wtf your reading. a) the 4 colors represent googles logo. b) they are selling it from google stores, probablly online because it can be activated on t-mobile or at&t. c) hardware costs alot more than you think it does and even though google is rich, they arent going to build a factory anytime soon, hiring htc was a good start. apple didnt build their iphone soley by themselves, foxconn was a huge part.

you are petty and i dont have time for argumentative people who try to belittle others over trivial matters, opinions, and speculations. im going to say this and be done. blue yellow red and green and an X is USUALLY winmo (its an early prototype and blurry photo). your b is the same as mine. even tho its SAID and still to early to tell it is being sold independently by google network restrictions require ppl to activate on select carriers. and i also said contract a lesser known entity for cheap labor and less thunder sharing when it comes to the hardware. thanks for your 2¢. but the buckets already full.

Verizon is supposed to get the HTC Bravo right? I assume the Bravo is going to look similar to this? If you notice the soft keys (I guess you'd call them) above the trackball resemble the droid and eris very closely (at least I think). Could this be a version for Verizon or is Android in general moving more towards that design? EDIT: Okay, I just looked more closely at the Eris and droid and it seems the keys are pretty smiliar but in a different order and some have a slightly different design. I am thinking this might be a design of newer android type phones? I haven't noticed this on Android phones for other carriers though?

verizon is going the logical route and giving some uniformity to their "droid" series so that you know its a verizon model. very smart of them.

I just saw this picture online. Looks like the phone is definitely going to work with T-Mobile.... http://dvice.com/archives/2009
