Google Nexus One Rising

Google recently launched its answer to Apple's iPhone, the Google Nexus One. This entry to the global mobile phone market will be initially available to consumers through plans offered through T-Mobile at $79.99 per month. This will be an unlimited call and text plan. But consumers can also

get the phone through a Google-run Website. Verizon will make it available in their network by spring this year. An unlocked version of the phone is also offered at $529 at Google's phone store.

The Nexus One's features include a 3.7 inch touchscreen, the soon-to-be-standard 5 MP camera with autofocus and a 2x digital zoom, Micro SD card slot, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, as well as an assisted global positioning system (AGPS) receiver. It runs using Google's Android Mobile Technology Platform 2.1 OS.

With its 1 Ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, it has more memory compared to the iPhone. Its size is also smaller with a thickness of 11.5 mm compared to the iPhone's 12. 3 mm. In terms of cost, it will cost lesser compared to the iPhone in a comparative analysis made in a PC World article by JR Raphael.

With all the anticipation for the Google Nexus One to come out in the market, US consumers will have the first crack at the phone and test its performance against the other smartphones out in the market today. They even set up a You Tube channel for the phone to reach a bigger consumer base when it starts selling on a global scale.
