Google's Nexus One reviewed, how does it stack up?
Recently, Engadget got a review of Google's first handset, the Nexus One. Even though the device will come to T-Mobile first, followed by Verizon and Vodafone in the Spring, we're all interested as to how it preforms. As a whole, the Nexus One is a pretty capable smartphone, according to Engadget, which is pretty normal we guess, having in mind its powerful hardware. In addition, if the DROID's sharp edges weren't exactly your cup of tea, then it seems the Nexus One will appeal to you more with its smooth lines. On the software front, the Nexus is running Android 2.1 (Flan), as it became clear yesterday on the event, which unfortunately, doesn't seem to bring a lot of new stuff, Engadget reports. Ultimately, it looks like the HTC Nexus One is a very high-end device, very well-made, but isn't a game-changer, as some have hoped.

We at PhoneArena will also be doing a full review of the Google Nexus One, so expect it soon!

Too bad there's no planned version for AT&T or I'd totally get it.

If you wanted it bad enough, you could just buy the unlocked version and activate it on AT&T.

i agree, i'm totally getting this phone, BUT, the differences between the nexus and droid are minimal. nexus is a tad faster and a lot sleeker but thats about it :( If they released it at the 4.3 in screen we originally thought it wouldve been SWEEEEEET

I agree with both of you.. been waiting for a decent full touch screen smartphone with excellent colors for videos and pictures. Dont like the droid.. too bulky and slide out keyboard.

yeah! at this level of thinness even a millimeter or two makes a difference - i'll do without the keyboard, especially since this phone comes with pretty good speech recognition (reports suggest 90% accuracy). i'm waiting for this phone to come out on VZW

if this phone had a qwerty key board it would be a awsome phone

This phone does have a qwerty keyboard and a different name to go with it-DROID. No thanks on the Nexus One and no thanks on physical qwertys on any touch screen phone.

-Since they're making a Verizon CDMA version...Hopefully Sprint gets it as some point in the future
