Alright, Google guys. It's time to stop reading quite so much science fiction. TechCrunch reports that the official name of the Google Phone will be the Nexus One. Unlockr has some images of the new device. It looks exactly like the HTC Passion, but has no HTC branding. The Gphone has been described by one lucky early user as, "iPhone + a little extra screen and a scroll wheel. Great touchscreen, and Android." The Nexus One looks alright, but it certainly isn't a particularly stylish device. Then again, most users are willing to sacrifice a little flare for a device this badass. The Nexus One will sell as an unlocked GSM phone. T-Mobile and AT&T will both be potential carriers. Neither carrier will have exclusivity, but TmoNews reports that a source has informed them T-Mobile will handle billing, general questions, and general troubleshooting. The device itself will be sold exclusively through Google. In terms of specs, expect a big (3.7"-4.3") OLED touchscreen with a "super-high" resolution, a Snapdragon processor, no keyboard, two mics and a "weirdly large" camera. There will be no physical keyboard, which is why this device is expected to be thinner than the iPhone. No other information is out yet, but I think it's safe to say we can also expect at least 256 MB of RAM and a decent amount of on-board flash memory.
