ood God! It's January 5 folks! Today is the day when Google would be holding a special press meet at its Mountain View Campus - mostly believed to be the launching platform for the Nexus One, Google's own Android based smartphone.
While we are yet to receive any correspondence from Google regarding the nature of the conference today, most have largely assumed this to be the official announcement of the Nexus One and Google's future plans with the device. While it would be most welcome from Google if it uses this opportunity to announce something other than this, we won't complain - as long as it is something really kick ass. (Ahem: Remember Google Wave?)
Having said that, let's get back to the Nexus One, the specs of which was revealed a week ago. The phone, which is the first ever "GooglePhone", sports a 3.7-inch gargantuan display and has even been termed by some to be the best Android device yet. Other specs include:
* Android 2.1 * HSDPA 7.2Mbps, HSUPA 2Mbps * Qualcomm Snapdragon (QSD 8250) processor at 1GHz * 4 illuminated softkeys (Back, Menu, Home, Search) * Tri-color charging and notification LED * Haptic feedback * Accelerometer * Light sensor * Proximity sensor * A-GPS * Digital compass * Wi-Fi * 3.5mm headset jack * Active noise cancellation * 5MP camera with autofocus, LED flash, geotagging and 2x digital zoom * Stereo Bluetooth 2.1 (A2DP, EDR) * 512MB Flash memory * 512MB RAM * 4GB MicroSD card included (supports cards up to 32GB) * MicroUSB * Weight: 130 grams (1400 mAh battery included)
Would that be droolworthy enough? Watch this space as the events unfold a few hours from now.
