Launched last Tuesday is google's Nexus One, a challenger to apple's iphone. Google believes that more people have been surfing the web via their smartphones than personal computers. The Nexus One has a 5 mega pixel camera and a flash as compared to the iPhone that only has 3 megapixel with no flash. It is also built with a light sensor to detect how bright an environment is making the screen auto adjusts its brightness. The purpose is to be able to save its battery life. It also has a noise canceling technology for easier use in noisy places.
As for pricing, you can buy an "unlocked" Nexus One for $529 or sign up for T-Mobile's 2 year agreement and get it at $179. Google will also offer versions of its new phone that will give phone users the option of selecting their own wireless providers. Verizon USA and Vodafone Europe will start offering subsidies of the nexus One this spring.
