Photos From The Nexus One Launch

Google officially unveiled its phone today, the Nexus One.  Google is calling it a “superphone” where “web meets phone,” an “exemplar of what’s possible on Android.”

We watched the unveiling on the web and took some pictures and notes as we went along.

Here’s a gallery and some details about the phone →

The MC for the day, Mario Queiroz

Mario whipped out the phone, but we didn't hear many oohs or ahhs

HTC's CEO Peter Chou was on hand. He touted the 1 GHZ snapdragon processor as well as the OLED screen.

The Nexus One is a sexy beast. It has a live background, meaning the wallpaper moves.

It's as slim as a pencil, and as light as a Swiss Army knife

Android 2.1 comes on the Nexus One. It has a few slight tweaks, like voice recognition across the entire phone. No worries about the touch keyboard anymore.

The interface for the photos looks very cool. It opens up and spreads the pictures out. It also dips, using 3D styling.

And Rubin, the Android leader was asked why the phone still costs $530. Where's the revolution? Where's the ad supported, free phone? He had no answer.

Motorola Co-CEO Sanjay Jha was late, but he made it. He was stuck in traffic. He says Google phone sales aren't a threat.

A sorta awkward moment, we assume. The CEO of Motorola next to the CEO of HTC, as Google shows off the HTC built Nexus One phone.
