Google Nexus One's 3.7-inch capacitive touchscreen uses an OLED screen with 480 x 800 pixels set within a case measuring 11.5mm x 60mm x 119mm.

The wait is over with Google's Nexus One phone, which has nearly the same form factor as Apple's iPhone, now on sale.

The new Google phone is made by HTC and is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon processor running Google's Android OS. T-Mobile is Google's designated wireless carrier.

The 3.7-inch capacitive touchscreen uses an OLED screen with 480 x 800 pixels set within a case measuring 11.5mm x 60mm x 119mm. The phone has almost identical curved corners and contoured edges as the iPhone. Along its left edge are a volume control and a power button on the top edge with a sleep setting and a headphone jack.

The Nexus One has four keys along its bottom edge for back, menu, home, and search. Its most distinctive feature is a tiny white trackball below the buttons.

A micro-USB port is included, along with a three-element connection for a dock. A 5Mpixel camera with a Xenon flash is located on the back of the phone. Inside, the Nexus One has 512MB RAM, 512MB ROM, a light sensor, proximity sensor, an accelerometer, a GSM radio, Wi-Fi chip, GPS chip and a microSD slot with a 4GB card that is expandable to 32GBs.

The unlocked Nexus One sells for Rs.24,815.78 ($530), or Rs.8,428 ($180) with a 2-year contract with T-Mobile.
