Google Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG) is building a new phone called the Nexus One through a partnership with HTC. A lot of employees and testers have been tweeting about how cool the new phone is. The Great White Snark wrote that it is “like an iPhone on beautifying steroids.”
This new phone will be sold by and branded by Google as an unlocked phone. The Nexus One is expected to launch in January 2010 and it won’t be sold by any one carrier. Since it is unlocked, you will be able to use it with almost any existing GSM plan you have through a SIM card. The Nexus One is very fast, uses a Snapdragon chip, and has a high-res OLED resolution. The phone also has two microphones, no keyboards, and has a large built in camera. There is also a voice-to-text feature that allows you to say the words you want written in an e-mail and it gets automatically dictated.
The phone looks very similar to the HTC Passion. Below are some screenshots of the phone as seen on Engadget.
