Google's Nexus One smartphone ready to challenge iPhone

For more than two years now Apple’s iPhone has dominated the smartphone universe with a sleek design, easy to use interface, and impressive all touch screen format. recently Google powered, Android phones release by companies like Motorola and HTC have stormed into the market with their own sleek designs and all touch screen formats. recently however Google has decided to directly challenge the top dog’s at Apple with the release of the Google Nexus One, running the most updated Android operating system, version 2.1.

While previous touch screen phones released on the Android operating system have experienced growing pains with their operating system ranging from sluggish response times to an app market that can’t compare to Apple’s, there is a real belief that the Nexus One can mount the most serious challenge to the iPhone yet. Along with the latest version, 2.1, of the Android operating system the Nexus One has a 3.7 inch display, 512MB of ram, 1GHz Snapdragon ARM CPU (central processing unit), and 4GB of internal storage. it also carries the usual array of features such as USB port, standard sized headphone jack, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi.

Many believe the Nexus One can help Android further cut into Apple’s share of the smartphone market, with the Nexus One set to go directly head to head against the iPhone. Despite its impressive lineup of features, the Nexus One has suffered some setbacks. unlike the iPhone which is exclusive to the AT&T network, Google planned for the Nexus One to be unattached, making it possible for users to operate it on several different carriers. however two of the nation’s largest carriers, Sprint and Verizon, have backed out of plans to carry the device on their networks.
