Hello boys and girls. I just got done reviewing some of the news to come out of the Google Android Announcement today and so here I am to sum it up for you. You know, so you don’t have to do all that tedious mucking about in hyperspace (Douglas Adams fans unite). (Photo Property of Google)
I have for you a bulleted list of features of the phone and of news to come out of the announcement itself. Well go on. Hit the read more already. You know you want to.
— 3.7-inch AMOLED display
— 1GHz Snapdragon proccessor
— multi-color notification LED under the trackball
— Light and Proximity sensor
— Five megapixel camera with LED flash
— stereo bluetooth and 3.5mm headphone jack
— Active noise suppression – one on the bottom and another on the back for noise reduction

So what, out of all that talking, do I think we need to look out for? Firstly the voice recognition software on this phone looks very promising. My blackberry can call anyone I choose using nothing but my voice commands but what if I could tell my phone what to tweet or SMS while I was doing something else and then post or send my snippet without ever having to look at my phone? That’s one of the most interesting pieces of news to come out of this announcement. Android 2.1 will allow this voice recognition and more features to be used not only by the Nexus One but also to such new Android phones like the Motorola Droid. That’s good news for all of you Droid owners out there who might have thought that maybe you bought too soon; fear not for Google hath not forsaken thee.
You might be saying, “how many dead president flash cards is this phone going to set me back and where do I go to give my money away?”
The Nexus One goes on sale today for $530 unlocked and $180 on T-mobile with your usual two-year blood-pact. Now when I say that the phone is unlocked that means that you can use it on any GSM network, however, it does not currently support the frequencies needed to connect to AT&T’s 3G network (it can still use EDGE thought).
I for one am super excited to get my hands on one of these and see for myself what the perfect android experience should be like. I love Android and I can’t wait to see even more come out of the noble halls of everyones favorite internet company, Google.
