Default Step into the Nexus - a history of the Google phone (updated 12/23/11)

Contents:
  1. Contents
  2. T-Mobile G1
  3. Nexus One
  4. Nexus S
  5. Nexus Prime

Background: These are the notes that you will see under each phone.
  • Released - The day the phone came out.
  • Purpose - The intent of the phone, as Google phones are not direct upgrades of each other, like the iPhone. These phones are each meant to push something into the Android ecosystem.
  • Specs - What the phone is made of.
  • Family - Each Google phone is typically made from another released phone, or other phones are released based off it. These are the direct ports of the Google phone being discussed.
  • Successors - These are the direct successors to the Google phone being discussed. If you're looking to upgrade to a similar phone, look at these phones before you look at another Nexus.

NEXUS ONE


Released:January 5, 2010

ABI Thread: http://www.anythingbutipod.com/forum...ad.php?t=50559

Purpose: After more than a year of availability, the Android operating system was getting pummeled by Apple and others. Market share was still under 2%. The recent arrival of the Motorola Droid on Verizon was spurring interest, but Google needed a phone that could be branded as the first "super phone" in a world of smart phones. Enter the Nexus One, which was also the first Android-based handset to officially support multi-touch input, in direct violation of Apple's threats to sue anyone who used it.

Specs:
  • Form Factor: Slate
  • Display: 3.7", 480x800
  • SOC: Qualcomm qsd8250
  • CPU: Scorpion @ 1ghz
  • GPU: Adreno 200
  • RAM: 512MB
  • Camera: 5.0MP
  • Storage: 512MB internal, up to 32GB MicroSDHC

Family:
  • HTC Desire (various carriers)
  • HTC Incredible (Verizon, US)
  • HTC Evo 4G (Sprint, US)

Successors:
  • HTC Desire S (various carriers)
  • HTC Incredible S (various carriers)
  • HTC Incredible 2 (Verizon, US)
