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