More details on the Nexus One

Alls been relatively quiet on the Nexus One front for a couple of days hours, but we're getting more information about what's been floating around in the hands of Google employees. A recent hands-on by tnkgrl Mobile brings us the following:

  • It's thin.
  • It looks better than all the blurry pictures.
  • Had a 4GB microSD card.
  • Battery is 1400mAh.
  • Screen looks like it's OLED and the same size and resolution as the Motorola Droid.
  • No AT&T 3G on board. EDGE works fine.
  • The phone is unlocked.
  • No multitouch in browser or Google Maps.
  • No dedicated camera key, but same UI as in the Droid.
  • Weak flash, so-so for low-light photos.
  • Calls are normal calls. Not VOIP.
  • A five multi-pane home screen like Sense on the Hero.
  • MicroUSB.

Some of that well could just be dogfood issues, like the phone being unlocked. We'll still have to see about that. Multitouch is a sticky thing. Some of us can live without it, others can't.
