Google announces Nexus One
January 5th, 2010 by Susan Smith
Google is set to launch its first own-brand mobile phone today. It includes a five-megapixel camera and is lighter and thinner than Apple’s iPhone, according to press reports.
The Nexus One is the first smart phone designed by the company’s own engineers and is expected to be unveiled at a press conference at its headquarters in California.
Unlike other mobile phones, it will be available from Google itself, allowing customers to use the network of their choice.
The launch of the Nexus is seen as Google’s latest bid to promote the Android operating system which it designed in 2007 and which is already used on other phones, including Motorola’s Milestone.
