There have been handsets labelled Google Phones before such as the G1 and G2. However, these were only actually using the Google developed android Operating System and were branded by T-Mobile or Vodafone and HTC.
Google have gone for a really sleek and stylish design, which fits neatly into the palm of your hand and slips in and out of your pocket without a struggle. The Nexus One, only weighs about 130g, which is 6g lighter than the iPhone.
The combination of Android 2.1 sitting above a Snapdragon CPU clocked at 1GHz with 512Mb of RAM and ROM will enable the user to run a number of applications at the same time, without the phone slowing down or crashing.
