What is Nexus one?
Hardware : Nexus one is like other touch screen phones with some « sexy » features : AMOLED screen, 5 Megapixel, Camera with led flash, 1GHz Snapdragon CPU from Qualcomm, two mics for « active noise suppression »…
Software : Nexus one is running the latest Android Build : Android 2.1 .
And not much more…
A revolution ?
I’m a fervent Android supporter but I’m not so much excited by the news, I mean it’s just a new terminal. I think my old HTC Dream G1 will support Android 2.1 thanks to developers like cyanogen. (Ok it probably won’t be as fast and smooth as the nexus one, but it will work). There will be many others devices including android 2.1 and future versions including other sexy hardware features.
That’s why I think Nexus one is not a revolution. It’s just a great advertisement for Android to the general public. This is the second device after the Motorola Droid to appear as a serious iPhone competitor.
Google was in position to upset the mobile phone market, bypassing traditional carriers with google Voice for example.
So the Nexus One is not a revolution, but the revolution may have already begun with the Android launch.
