Ahh, the Nexus One. We've seen screenshots and we've read the FCC report. Aside from a bunch of screenshots and some incomplete information on the specs, we know very little about the Nexus One. Thankfully, Android and Me has helped us to reduce our ignorance. They've come upon a tip from an anonymous source. Again; this is unconfirmed and may have no veracity. Only time will tell us for sure. The tip states that the Nexus One will cost $199 at launch. The cost of the phone will be subsidized by Google themselves in order to push their handset to as many users as possible. On one hand, that would be a very Google thing to do. On the other hand...that's a lot of money.The rumors also state that the developer team is working to add several new 3D elements to the Android UI. While the current version of the Google Phone is GSM, the source says that a CDMA device will follow. If true, that's great news for everyone who rolls with Verizon or Sprint.
