After several weeks of waiting, we finally have the full spec sheet for the Nexus One thanks to Engadget. Most of the specs are just what we expected except for the amount of RAM. We had heard rumors it was being beefed up and we can now confirm the Nexus One has 512 MB RAM (2x the 256 MB of the Droid).
Engadget is also reporting that the first batch of phones will be available only by “invitation” from Google. We were lucky enough to be invited to Google I/O 2009 where we received the Google Ion phone so I’m crossing my fingers we get a special invite to review the Nexus One.
The other good news is that T-Mobile will eventually sell the Nexus One at some point in the future. We are still waiting to get an official launch date and retail pricing.
Highlights of the Nexus One include:
- Android 2.1
- 11.5mm thick
- 512MB RAM, 512MB ROM, 4GB microSD in-box expandable to 32GB
- 5 megapixel camera with mechanical AF and LED flash
- HSPA 900 / 1700 / 2100, 7.2Mbps down and 2Mbps up — in other words, yes to T-Mobile 3G and no to AT&T 3G
- 3.7-inch WVGA AMOLED display
