Hot new pictures of the Nexus One
After the guys at Engadget were able to procure an HTC Nexus One in advance, they wrote all about the functionality of the handset. Perhaps the biggest difference between the new device and the current Android benchmark, the DROID, is the speed of the former. The site notes that you can certainly see the difference in quickness between the two handsets thanks to the Snapdragon 1GHz processor in the Nexus One. And while they say that the N-One has a better design and feel than the Motorola device, Engadget does note that there is nothing substantially different between the two handsets. Their hands-on experience also points out the animated wallpaper that seems to be part of Android 2.1. In addition, the sliding drawer where applications reside on earlier Android models is now gone and the number of home screens is up to 5. Navigation to each home page is done by clicking on dots on the bottom of the screen or by clicking on a thumbnail view of each page. A widget on the home screen brings you news headlines and weather information. The bottom line is that Engadget calls the Nexus One and Android 2.1 more polished than earlier versions of the OS including the DROID and version 2.01. We are looking forward to getting our review unit of the handset so that we can provide you with our hands-on opinion of what is the hottest phone thus far of the brand new year.

This kind of reminds me of the Droid Erids

Except better specs. If the Eris had the same screen size and processor, I'd own it. Just not interested in late 2008 technology. Hopefully some sort of variant of the Nexus One hits Verizon sometime soon.

I agree it's not that great looking of a phone. Hardware seems pretty amazing though.

If this phone had a slide out QWERTY keyboard like the droid, that would be awesome. AND google could slim it out 2.

I saw the video for this article at engadget.com and I wasn't impressed. First off the Almighty N1 force closed twice it lagged badly with navigation and its build very similar to the Eris PLASTIC. Its like a keyboardless Droid IMO

I didn't see the lag with navigation. I have that same "lag" with my iPhone 3GS on google maps.
