More details have been revealed on the new Google-branded phone, the Nexus One...in fact, all of them, a complete specification list for the handset.
According to the Engadget website, the new handset will include a 3.7in AMOLED-based touchscreen running at WVGA resolution. Based upon the Android 2.1 operating system and powered by a rather swift Qualcomm Snapdragon (QSD 8250) processor that trips along at 1GHz, the new phone will offer fast data transfer via HSDPA at 7.2Mbps and HSUPA at 2Mbps.
The new design will include a gamut of sensors including Haptic feedback for the screen, a light sensor, an accelerometer and a proximity sensor. A digital compass will be coupled with A-GPS for location finding while Internet connections will be eased via Wi-Fi.
512MB of RAM will be included and a 4GB memory card will be thrown in for good measure to fill a possible 32GB of internal memory capacity. Finally, a 5-megapixel camera will be included along with autofocus, LED flash a 2x digital zoom and geotagging.
To be released in the USA, initially, on 5 January, the phone will, even there, be restricted to sales via invite only. What that means is unknown at the moment. Presumably, the rest of us will see the phone later in the year.
