Google Releases Nexus One Smart Phone


Google said Tuesday that its long-anticipated new smartphone, Nexus One, Tuesday, costs $179 with a two-year service contract.

The Google Nexus One, which runs Google's Android operating system, has a 3.7 inch touchscreen OLED display, with a 1 gigahertz processor from Qualcomm. The Google Nexus One includes a 5 megapixel camera for video and photos and stereo Bluetooth connection for headphones.

The Google Nexus One battery will last for up to seven hours of talk time, or up to five hours of Internet use, on a 3G cellphone network, Google says. The Google Nexus One includes a global positioning system (GPS).

The Google Nexus One costs $529 without a cellphone service contract, and is available online at google.com/phone. The Google Nexus One is $179 with a two-year contract from T-Mobile. The phone will be available from Verizon Wireless and Vodafone (a British cellphone company) in 2010.

Other manufacturers, including Verizon and Motorola, have already released Android phones, but this is the first to be rolled out by Google. Google has said that an unnamed third-party hardware maker is actually building the Google Nexus One.

The Google Nexus One includes a feature new to Android: active noise cancellation technology that will push out background noise when in a busy area.

Another highlight of the Google Nexus One is a feature that lets you dictate e-mails, Tweets and Facebook posts without having to type.
It's an extension of Google's voice search, already available on other Android phones.

Other apps on Google Nexus One include YouTube, Gmail, and Maps.
