Google Nexus One, threat to iPhone?
Google's just revealed the Nexus One next-gen Android phone, there's a secret superpower. It's voice controllable. Everywhere. it's pretty much as we expected. The 1 GHz snapdragon processor is there, delivering "what we love at Google: speed" (as described during the press event). There's the 5-megapixel camera, 3.7-inch OLED screen and so on.
"This is as powerful as your laptop was four years ago," Android co-founder Andy Rubin said.

It seems pretty nice, but I will not be going to T-mobile to get the 3G speeds. Hopefully Google wants to actually be "open" and have AT&T 3G.

Anyone who'd buy this to use on ATT Wireless would be foolish. Edge is completely worthless and unuseable. It's worser than a old 14.4k dial up external modem. And yes, I used to have one of those. I upgraded from a 300/400/1200 baud external modem. Am I showing my age?Gimme a vector, Victor. I'm coming home. Roger, Roger. Huh?

1) Is it too hot to hold?
2) Will the battery last long enough to complete a call?
If the answer to 1 is no and that to 2 is yes, then it is pretty cool. Lots of novel ideas. Hope that the next iPhone has some of these innovations.Thanks for ending the exclusivity, Steve. it is about time.

While I like the concept of distributing the device unlocked from the get go (as an option I'm sure - hence the $600 entry point), I think the omission of non-T-mobile 3G bands will limit the device's appeal. If it had included other 3G bands, then I think Google could expect much higher sales (even if it didn't sell it through AT&T in the states). T-mobile just doesn't have the coverage of the major carriers (I wish they did along with their current price plans as that might pressure the big two to be more competitive).--

Anyway, is Nexus One a threat? Maybe once they get that scroll stutter and pageload time thing fixed. In all seriousness, its a nice device, but it's not really more of a threat than the DROID/Milestone, which is to say, "meh,".

As long as there is app store advantage for iphone no phone can beat it...
Why do u need a 1ghz snapdragon processor when it cant even handle smooth browsing through screens?? a 600mhz processor in iphone does a better job with its OS..
There is no point developing such incredible hardware when you dont have a rewarding software to make it a complete phone..
