Features of Google ‘Nexus One phone’

Google announced last week on its official blog that it is testing a new mobile device. The handset is being tested by Google’s 20,000 employees, who reportedly received the device just before the weekend.

Here’s over to the gossip mill for all that Google’s Nexus One phone may offer.

Bearing strong resemblance to Apple iPhone, the handset is likely to have a slightly larger display than iPhone and will lack a physical keyboard. Unlike iPhone’s LCD display, Nexus one is likely to have an OLED display. Reports also suggest that Google phone will come with a trackball.

The phone will have a 5 megapixel camera with LED and auto-focus. For gamers, the phone will offer OpenGL ES 2.0 support.
Google phone will run on Android 2.1 operating system. Speculations are rife that the phone will come with MicroSD, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

The handset will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 1GHz processor.

Unlike Apple’s popular iPhone, the Google handset will have an exchangeable battery and the ability for users to add a memory card to the device.
