It looks like Google’s not going to let news about their Nexus One die, because specs of the much-awaited Google Phone have come out. I’m guessing this is meant to stem the steady stream of questions about the phone’s guts. I mean, how the heck are we all supposed to know if the Nexus One is going to be good if we don’t know a single thing about its hardware specs?
The good news is that the guys from Engadget have been able to get their hands on a Nexus One, and darn it’s good. The highlights of the Nexus One specs are as follows: 1GHz Qualcomm QSD (Snapdragon) 8250 processor, 3.7-inch WVGA AMOLED touch screen (currently non-multi-touch), quad-band (850, 900, 1800, 1900MHz) GSM/EDGE and tri-band (900, 1700, 2100MHz) HSDPA support, a/b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth v2.1+EDR, 512MB RAM, 512MB ROM, an included 4GB microSD card with support up to 32GB, 5MP camera with mechanical autofocus and LED flash, Android v2.1, and a very svelte 0.45-inch thick body.
It’s also possible that it’s going to work on T-Mobile 3g and not (the much-ranted about) AT&T 3G. That’s good.
One more thing: it’s going to be available come January 5. Yes, that soon! But it’s going to be available only for limited “invite-only” retail sales. That means you have to look far and wide into the bowels of eBay (heh) to get your hands on a Nexus One if you’re not invited.
There isn’t any word on pricing yet, but it looks like the Nexus One is indeed coming much sooner than we thought.
