Google's Nexus One is finally out and the whole tech world is abuzz with it! What a way to start the new year and decade, eh?

So what does the Nexus One (hardware and price-wise)have over the other smartphones? Look no further as Mashable's done that for everyone:

Great points about the Nexus One vs. Others:

  • Worst Battery standby time at 250 Hrs.

Now go to and order your Nexus One. It’s $529 for the unlock version ($179 for T-Mobile while Verizon and Vodafone will be available by spring). Google will allow you to have a laser engraving at the back for free but will take 72 hours longer before it’s shipped.

Now, if only someone can give me $800 to get a Google Nexus One Phone...
