He also said that "Nexus One is an exemplar of what's possible on mobile devices through Android--when cool apps meet a fast, bright and connected computer that fits in your pocket."

Nexus One includes a variety of embedded popular applications, such as Facebook and Google Maps Navigation, and is also equipped with several new customized features, with more home screen panels added and a new live wallpaper feature. The phone features a new 3D framework for the Android system to power a new-look application launcher and photo and video galleries. Voice commands that are trained to respond to your voice will allow you to speak commands or text in any situation. A new Google Earth application was also unveiled, providing the full Earth experience on your phone in a similar fashion to that of the iPhone application.

The phone is available for $529.99 or with cellular service from T-Mobile for $179.99 with a two year service contract.
