If Google aimed to build up hype for the Nexus One, then they've done a fine job. Now that we have the complete specs, we think that the excitement around the phone will be just beginning to grow. But getting your hands on a Nexs One might be a problem, at least at first.

Here's the lowdown on the specs - the Nexus One is running Android 2.1 on top of a Snapdragon Central Processing Units (CPU) clocked at 1GHz, with 512Mega Bytes (MB) Random-Access Memory (RAM) and 512Mega Bytes (MB) ROM. The classy screen is a 3.7-incher AMOrganic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) capacitive touchclassy screen with WVideo Graphics Array (VGA) resolution (reportedly, there's no support for multitouch).

Here are the specifications for the Nexus One

The Nexus One has quad-band GSM/EDGE support and 3G with T-Mobile frequencies (900/1700/2100). The 3G comes in 7.2Mbps HSDPA and 5.76Mbps HSUPA flavor. The rest of the connectivity options are duly covered as well - Wi-Fi, Bluetooth with A2DP, GPS with A-GPS and a digital compass and finally a microUniversal Serial Bus (USB) port.

The phone is well equipped for multimedia as well - a 5MP autofocus capturing camera with Light Emitting Diode (LED) flash, 4GB microSD card in-box with support for up to 32GB cards, H.264 video decoding, and a 3.5mm audio jack. And of course the gigantic AMOrganic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) classy screen of the Nexus One should create for a remarkable viewing experience.

That's one rich spec sheet

The physical aspects of the phone are quite enticing as well. The Nexus One measures in at 119 x 59.8 x 11.5mm and weighs 130 grams with the 1400mAh battery. The back cover is Teflon-coated (think HTC Hero) and there's a second mic at the back of the phone for active noise cancellation.

A reminder of what the Nexus One looks like

There are some more fascinating nuggets of information - in addition to Cell-ID positioning, there's "Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi) positioning" (something like Skyhook like on the iPhone's Maps app maybe?) and the trackball serves as a notification light with a tri-color Light Emitting Diode (LED) glowing under it.

So, it all sounds like an Android fanboy's dream but getting your foot in the door as an early adopter might be a challenge. To acquire the Nexus One you'll need an invite, just like all beta Google services upsofar.

Typical Google however, rumor has it that T-Mobile USA will be getti9ng the phone as well some time in the future. No one knows when exactly but when the "beta" period of the Nexus One runs out, you should be able to acquire it through normal (read non-EBay) channels.
