Engadget has a Google Nexus One

EngadgetNexusOneWell, here’s news that should suck the wind right out of the sails of Google’s Android and presumed Nexus One announcement on Monday: Engadget has their very own Google Nexus One. Yes, we’ve all seen photos, and specs have been posted for days, but the video of the Nexus One in action is new.

While the video is only a first-look and doesn’t get into the nitty-gritty, the speed of the device is clear to see. They point out, however, the device itself is not a game-changer. It’s faster than Verizon’s Droid but pretty much the same otherwise. The focus of the short video are the new UI elements, such as menu switching. Its main showpiece is the live wallpaper, animated backgrounds that respond to input, such as touch. Yes, it’s eye candy but more video’s to come (and only a day until the Google press conference).

Alleged Apple fanboi, accused Android apologist, and confirmed Microsoft MVP for touch and tablet Mark Sumimoto a.k.a. Sumocat dabbles in all areas of mobile computing with a focus on Windows-based Tablet PCs and pen input. A mobile computing enthusiast since 2004, he pioneered the field of ink blogging via his personal blog, Sumocat's Scribbles. His current tools include a Fujitsu Lifebook T900, TEGA v2, and iPhone 4.
