The Nexus One story, Part 5 (plus another look at the car dock)

The fifth part in Google's YouTube series chronicling the birth (and now life) of the Nexus One is now available. In it we get a look at the Nexus One being used throughout the day (and a guy whose apartment is badly in need of a non-Google decorator). But we also get another brief look at the car dock.

At about 1:08 in we see our hero place his Nexus One in the car dock, which has kind of a dual ball-and-socket joint system for multiple angles. Why dude's using a car dock in a taxi is an interesting question, but we won't look a gift horse in the mouth here. Check out the latest video after the break. [Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 | Part 4]

  • I want the CAR DOCK NOW!! Any news as to whether it also charges the N1?
  • I second that emotion... I want it too. I'm pretty sure it charges it as well, but I'm going to see if I can verify that before I go ahead and say that it does. I can't even imagine them making a car dock without it being able to charge the phone.
  • Seeing how the Nexus Phone began is just amazing. From the moment it was conceptualize, until it hits our doorstep. There's still some questions that lingers, on how does the nexus phone really looked like from the beginning. Surely these series of vids are very informative.

  • typo.. NEXUS not NEWS
  • GO TO Verizon Dammmit!
  • Who care about Verizon, Magenta is excellent.
  • They show the iPhone version of Maps at the 1:31 mark, haha. FAIL!
  • LOL! Good catch. It's that mini-frame in the middle. I hadn't noticed that the 1st time I saw it.
  • I think this should have been Google's Super Bowl commercial...
  • By the way, does anyone else think that Nexus One is too big? Wouldn't it look better if it were just a bit smaller, maybe the size of BlackBerry Storm? I have mine and I like everything, except that it might be an inch or so too big. The building I work in the phone has to be visible at all times, so I have to carry it on my belt, and it is just too big if it's carried on the belt.
  • What GPS walking software was that in the clip?
  • That was google tracks. Works great. Records your tracks and stats and can one button press upload your maps to mymaps and all of the stats to a googledocs spreadsheet. works great for me tracking bike routes.
  • the size of the BB storm? that phone is bulky, i have it its a brick and a crap phone. worst phone ever. waiting for this to come to Verizon.
  • I would love a stylish car dock like that for my Hero!
