Yes yes we know this is a Mac site but we couldn’t resist the temptation. Here is some unboxing photos of the new Nexus One phone from Google.
As you can see the phone comes in a box that is packed similarly to the iphone’s box with the exception of a case with the android logo on it.
The screen is highly reflective in this photo but it is of a good size.
Here you see three phones of the same size. The Nokia E72, the Nexus One, and the HTC Hero also running android. The iPhone 3Gs is the one taking the photos
The back side of the Nexus one without the battery and showing where the sim card slot is and the 4gb Micro SD card slot it.
Finally we take a look at whats in the box. As you can see the charger, the battery, USB cable and the Headset.
This thing is fast. It took a while to start up but the it was very snappy after that. Switching between application is also fast. Setup was very easy. After configuring Zain internet settings, we supplied a gmail account. Our contacts from Google contacts were downloaded, as well as the emails, calendars, and even Google talk was setup and ready. The touch screen is responsive which is the on par with iphone’s touch screen. The voice controls are very good and the wealth of applications is excellent. We were even able to configure Google Voice and receive SMS and calls on that number. Overall we like this phone.
