iPhone 3GS Vs Google Nexus One Phone

Apple iPhone 3GS vs. Google Nexus One Phone - Has the iPhone Met It's Match>?

Details of Google's new Nexus One smart phone are now surfacing, and it has several extra features and advantages that iPhone doesn't. For starters, when it comes to Nexus v iPhone, Nexus has 512MB RAM, and you can add as much as 32 GB of Micro SD memory as well. The Nexus One has the Android mobile technology platform 2.0 operating system, a 5-megapixel camera with LED flash, mechanical auto-focus and 2X digital zoom, a 3.7-inch screen plus a trackball and soft-keys.

Nexus One weighs just 130 grams and is more compact, and users can tag their pictures with GPS co-ordinates. It also has HSUPA of 2Mbps up to 5.76Mbps, HSDPA of 7.2Mbps, and A2DP stereo Bluetooth 2.1 plus EDR, as well as cell tower and WiFi positioning. A few of the extra features include physical power and volume keys, haptic feedback, a Teflon-coated back cover, dock pins, stereo headset, earpiece, two microphones, a SIM card, light sensor, proximity sensor, a tricolour charging and notification indicator LED and 512 MB of flash memory.

iPhone 3GS has a 3-megapixel camera with tap to auto-focus, no flash, geo-tagging and a 3.5-inch screen with 16M colours. It weighs 135 grams, has 16GB or 32 GB of flash memory, 256MB of RAM, no Micro SD card, A2DP Bluetooth 2.1, HSDPA of 7.2Mbps, and the superb iPhone 3.0 operating system.

In the Nexus v iPhone stakes, it's clear that the list of features the Nexus has and the iPhone doesn't is a long one. Nexus One also has a host of audio decoders that iPhone 3GS lacks, and it supports numerous image formats, including JPEG, PNG, GIF, BMP and H.263. In fact, in the Nexus vs. iPhone battle of the phones, iPhone only has a single feature on paper that's superior to Nexus, which is the standard size of the memory. Of course the iPhone has the legendary design and support of iTunes and the other multitude of apps which even Android cannot compete with at present.

It is great that this competition exists in the marketplace as I see the Nexus with it's Android O/S as the only true competitor at the moment. 2010 is set to be an interesting year for the trendy touchscreen smartphone market!

My opinion: The Nexus One has certainly raised the profile of the impressive Android operating system which has deserved a better handset for some time.

It still has some way to go before it topples the iPhone 3GS Empire, especially in the 'I WANT ONE!' stakes. Now the mobile phone network is no longer such an important factor in iPhone ownership it should increase Apple's market share, which will worry other large mobile phone manufacturers. Google certainly has the necessary muscle to make a success of it's entry into the mobile market, so it will be interesting to see what it does next.
