Nexus One Smartphone: Good, Not Great

The Nexus One is available unlocked (without a contract) for T-Mobile and AT&T’s carrier networks as well as locked (with a two-year subscriber agreement) from a single operator, T-Mobile. The unlocked edition, at $529, is considerably more expensive than the locked version, which goes for only $179 with a two-year contract. Also, keep in mind that the unlocked edition only supports T-Mobile’s 3G bands, so cellular-wireless data access with an AT&T SIM card performs no better than poky EDGE speeds.
A CDMA version of the Nexus One is also on tap for Sprint and a Verizon model is due out soon.

So far, the Nexus One hasn’t done nearly as well as the Droid. Verizon’s shipped 250,000 of Motorola’s Android phone in the first week alone, for example. Meanwhile, as of mid-March, Google and T-Mobile’s sold only about 135,000 Nexus One units.

Nexus One Smartphone is Good, But….

Therefore, yes, acquisition, customer service and support has to significantly improve before the Nexus One can be taken seriously as a viable enterprise device. Nonetheless, as a piece of hardware, the Nexus One impresses, as does the implementation of the latest update to Google’s Android platform. Still, the smartphone is not quite ready to take the business market head on.

The Nexus One is a sleek-looking and handsome tablet-shaped smartphone that, at 4.7 x 2.35 x 0.45 inches, is rather compact and thin. It is a comfortable fit in both the hand and pocket. At 4.6 ounces (with battery), the device is rather light as well. It comes in a single two-toned gray scheme, with a lighter gray on the front and a darker gray on the back.
