The kids over at Engadget are the type that can’t rest until they know the contents of every present under the Christmas tree. Shaken today is the package containing Google’s Nexus One smartphone. And Engadget thinks they know what its all about.
Relying on an anonymous tipster, Engadget is reporting that the Nexus One will come equipped with Android 2.1, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth
2.1 (and A2DP Stereo Bluetooth), a digital compass, an accelerometer, a 5-megapixel camera with a 2X zoom, 512MB of memory, and a 4GB Micro SD card. It will be able to handle JPEG, GIF, and BMP images; MP3, MIDI, XMF, iMelody, Ogg Vorbis, and WAVE audio; and MPEG-4, H.264 AVC video. No word on what talk and standby times are. The Nexus One will be for use only on GSM/EDGE systems (and will be quad-band). (Engadget
posted a full set of specs
, if you too can’t wait for Christmas morning.)
But, it probably matters little, because there’s not going to be one under your tree, now or any time soon. Engadget also reports that the initial round of sales of the Nexus One will be by “invitation” only. Whose to get the invites Engadget doesn’t know. But they do say that T-Mobile, at some point in the future, will be offering the Nexus One for sale.
