The Nexus One and Google countdown

I have been waiting for the “right” Android phone for quite a while now. I’ve tried many different ones in the retail stores, but I simply don’t want to spend hundreds of dollars on a phone if it isn’t darn close to what I want. The Nexus One is certainly the first Android phone that seems to do everything I want it to do. There are certainly some drawbacks, but most things seem to be right. It supposedly comes with Android 2.1, screen resolution of 480×854, a 1GhZ Snapdragon processor, and it won’t feel like a brick in your pocket. I’m certainly looking for other features as well, but those are the primary considerations for me.

Anyway, the main purpose of this post regards the release date/time of the Nexus One. Many are suggesting that the release date is going to be 05 January 2009, but much of this is simply speculation. Well, I found something interesting on Google’s page today. Go to Google, and click “I’m Feeling Lucky” without typing anything into the search box. See that? See that mysterious timer? It seems like this counter recognises one’s timezone, and then calculates the time left (in local time) until the new year (midnight, 01 January 2010). However, could this also be the debut of the Nexus One? Will Google release this phone as a New Year’s present? Of course, this is simply speculation, but one never knows.

  1. “Google announces Android press conference for January 5th” – could it be? 🙂

    Thanks for the comments, Josh. I have fixed that link. 🙂 As far as battery life, the only thing that I can find is the 1400mAh spec, but that doesn’t nicely indicate anything but capacity.

  2. I’ve only barely heard anything about a rumored Google phone. The links you’ve included here did provide some more info — like the supposed specs. Maybe that multitouch jazz will be included in a future android version?

    Also, your first link to TMO is dead.

    This phone does look pretty good — I’m looking for a new one myself, which means I’ve mostly been looking at:

    1. Carriers and availability
    2. Price (phone itself and monthly plan)
    3. Battery life, weight, size

    This thing looks closest to acceptable — though I dunno how much it’ll cost, nor anything from #3 at all.
