We all remember the last time we saw Google.com/Phone; we were brought to a Nexus One page that showed Google's flagship device as well as links to buy one.
Well, sadly the Nexus One has been commissioned to be solely a developer phone, abolishing the need for a site dedicated to it. Google has done a sleek redesign, which brings together many of the available Android devices in the market today.
From the announcement:
Here at Google, we’re thrilled with the global adoption of Android and with the high quality of devices that are coming to market around the world. Since there are so many great phones, we wanted to make the selection process a little easier for people who are in the market for a new one. Today we’re rolling out the Google Phone Gallery -- a showcase of Android-powered devices that deliver the best Google experience today
The site aggregates all of the devices that are Google-powered and can be sorted by newest or alphabetical. You see a picture of each phone, followed by a short description underneath and a link to buy from whichever carrier has the device. If you click on the phone, it will bring you to a new window that will present much more detailed specs.
Another great feature is Compare, where you can select three devices and it will bring up a side-by-side detailed comparison of them.
There are 16 countries, including the US, that are searchable with more to be added later. This is a great idea by Google to do as it brings clarity for people who don't necessary spend all day keeping up-to-date on the slew of Android devices that continue to hit the market. [Google Mobile Blog]
