Google Nexus One's 3.7-inch capacitive touchscreen uses an OLED screen with 480 x 800 pixels set within a case measuring 11.5mm x 60mm x 119mm.

The wait is over as Google's Nexus One phone, which has nearly the same form factor as Apple's iPhone, went on sale January 5.

The new Google phone is made by HTC and is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon processor running Google's Android OS. T-Mobile is Google's designated wireless carrier.

The 3.7-inch capacitive touchscreen uses an OLED screen with 480 x 800 pixels set within a case measuring 11.5mm x 60mm x 119mm. The phone has almost identical curved corners and contoured edges as the iPhone. Along its left edge are a volume control and a power button on the top edge with a sleep setting and a headphone jack.

The Nexus One has four keys along its bottom edge for back, menu, home, and search. Its most distinctive feature is a tiny white trackball below the buttons.

A micro-USB port is included, along with a three-element connection for a dock. A 5Mpixel camera with a Xenon flash is located on the back of the phone. Inside, the Nexus One has 512Mbyte RAM, 512Mbyte ROM, a light sensor, proximity sensor, an accelerometer, a GSM radio, Wi-Fi chip, GPS chip and a microSD slot with a 4Gbyte card that is expandable to 32Gbytes.

The unlocked Nexus One sells for $530, or $180 with a 2-year contract with T-Mobile.
