The official specs for the Nexus One is finally out. Following the footsteps of Iphone, purchasing the phone is via online on the Google Website and the phone needs to go through an activation procedure once you receive the phone. Hong Kong is one of the few places that the Google Phone will be made available as of this moment. Other places include US (of course) , the UK and Singapore.
No real surprises about the specifications as they were already leaked out well before the official announcement, but some highlights include the 800×480 WVGA AMOLED display, 5MP AF camera with LED flash, 7.2Mbps HSDPA, Qualcomm QSD 8250 1 GHz,3.5mm audio jackand the now almost obligatory digital compass.
Some interesting features that come with the phone includes live wallpaper, turn by turn voice map navigation and voice dictation.

Not bad at HKD4500 for a new phone. I’m interested in the voice dictation and its accuracy when writing an SMS or email.
If they took PayPal I’d be even more tempted as I have US dollars in there!January 7, 2010 at 9:18 am #1676
I only just realised that apps can only be added to an Android phone in it’s internal memory ???
Apparently a fix is on the way, but it is strange it hasn’t been addressed by now.
Teething problems for the “Superphone”. Also no app for Audible and Slingplayer. Doesn’t seem to have a built in Office Suite.
I was that close to grabbing one of these, but maybe will hold back for a while.
HTC Pro2 has been great so far. If it ain’t broke…. well the HD2 has a nice CPU built into it…
