Google Nexus One Reviews

google-nexus-one-flatThere has been a lot of hype over the first “Google phone,” the Nexus One. But, just like you, we have to ask is this new smartphone all it’s cracked up to be? There seem to be some pretty consistent opinions floating around the Web from those lucky folks who got their hands on a prerelease Nexus One. Michael Arrington of TechCrunch reported in his review of the device that he had been using it since mid-December and was quite impressed. Most reviewers acknowledge it as the best Android device on the market, while some others (few and far between) describe it as another mediocre attempt to topple the iPhone. So if you’re thinking about getting your hands on Google’s new Nexus One smartphone here are the latest expert reviews of the device.
