The Nexus One is probably the most exciting gadget in development right now. Every bit of news we hear about this Google phone just makes it sound better and better. Except possibly this report of a personal encounter with the Nexus One by tnkgrl. On the whole, tnkgrl seemed to love the phone. She noted it was "extremely thin" and "much nicer looking in person". She confirmed that the phone came with a 4GB microSD card installed. The battery is 1400 mAH, the screen does appear to be OLED and the same size/res as the Droid's monitor. She confirms that there is no 3G for AT&T, and that the phone is "definitely unlocked". The Nexus One is "super snappy" and faster than the Droid. Much faster.Now comes the less awesome news. Tnkgrl says that there is no multitouch support in the browser or Google Maps. There's also no dedicated camera key, although the camera interface is the same as the Droid's. The flash is a little weak too. None of this is that disheartening, and we have to keep in mind that tnkgrl was not playing with the finalized version of the Nexus One. It's very possible that multitouch will be added in before launch. She only states that there is no multitouch in the browser and in Google Maps, which means it could be working for other applications and just not set up for the browser or Maps yet. We won't know for sure until January 5th.
