Google has released the Nexus One 3G phone last Wednesday, March 16th, and is available for use on the Rogers Wireless network in Canada. It is an unlocked phone which doesn’t come with any SIM card or wireless plan, so you can basically use this anywhere in the world that operates the 3G/UMTS bands (850/1900/2100 MHz) and GSM radio frequencies (850/900/1800/1900 MHz).
It’s a 3.7 inch (diagonal) touchscreen phone with a 5 megapixel camera with geotagging capability. Operating system is Android Mobile Technology Platform 2.1 (Eclair). It has WiFi and Bluetooth capability, AGPS receiver, Digital compass. It has 512 MB RAM, 512 MB Flash, and up to 32 GB Micro SD Card capacity. Talk time is up to 7 hours on 3G, 10 hours on 2G, internet use up to 5 hours on 3G, 6.5 hours on WiFi.
The current price? $529.00.
When you order the phone, it gives you an option to have a personalized engraving. Engraved phones cannot be returned for a refund, though, so just be sure the spelling is right and that you really want to keep this phone before buying.
Currently, if I decided to buy a new phone right now, I’d still choose the BlackBerry Bold 9700 over this one, though. But that’s another story for another day.
