The Nexus One isn’t out yet, but NexusOneBlog already has a full-blown review of the much anticipated Android phone.
Here’s an excerpt from their detailed review.
The display screen on this phone is simply incredible. There has yet to be any device out on the market to date that looks as crisp and clear as the Nexus One. The difference is like taking a look at a 30” television and trying to compare it with a brand new 46” Sony LCD. The Nexus One boasts a 3.7” (diagonal) widescreen, WVGA AMOLED screen, delivering at 720×480. Picture quality is very impressive.
Responsiveness to touch on the screen is definitely on par with the iPhone. There are no delays when touching apps and moving from screen to screen. Users have the ability to navigate left and right for a total of 5 screens. Thanks to the updated firmware, Android 2.1, the phone flies. While most phones will tend to lag a bit when opening, closing, and moving from page to page with touch and gestures, this phone moves with ease.
The sad part here is that there is no multi-touch on this device. So forget about pinching to zoom in and out, however if you MUST insist on using these gestures you can download an application called Dolphin. This app is a browser that allows you to do anything on an iPiPhonehone, within your browser on your Nexus One. It actually works very well.
Earlier, Engadget posted a Nexus One hands-on, including video.
I’m psyched to get a Nexus One, because I honestly believe that Android is the future of the mobile OS. The iPhone is cool and it started a revolution, but now it’s sort of the dumb blonde of smartphones — sexy but ultimately shallow. The future is in open systems.
Honestly, though, I’m also thinking of holding out for the Sony Ericsson’s first Android phone, the Xperia X10.
