Google today officially launched the much-rumored Nexus One handset made by HTC and marketed by Google. The company describes the phone as Superphone and it comes with 3.7-inch AMOLED touchscreen with 800 x 480 resolution. Other hardware features of the phone include 1GHz Qualcomm QSD 8250 processor, 512MB RAM, 512MB flash storage, 5-megapixel camera with autofocus, quad band GSM/EDGE, tri band UMTS, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, digital compass, accelerometer and microSD card slot (4GB card included).

The phone measures 4.68” x 2.35” x 0.45” and weighs 4.58 ounces. Battery life is 7 hours of 3G talk time and 250 hours standby time. Nexus One is only available through Google’s website, and it’s priced $530 unlocked and $180 with two year contract from T-Mobile. Google says that CDMA version of the phone for Verizon will come in spring.

Many reviewers like WSJ’s Walt Mossberg, NY Times’ David Pogue, Engadget’s Joshua Topolsky and Tech Crunch’s Michael Arrington have posted review of Google Nexus One. And all of them agree that Nexus One is no iPhone, but it’s a very good Android smartphone. David Pogue wrote in his review “The Nexus One is an excellent app phone, fast and powerful but marred by some glitches and missing features – a worthy competitor to the Droid, if not the iPhone. The Google phone store is a neat centralized place to buy phones, but so far, it offers zero advantages over buying a T-Mobile phone any other way.”
