With the iPhone 4 and Motorola XT720 both coming to market with native 720p HD video capture, it's time for the Nexus One to catch up or give up; happily, thanks to xda-developers, a new firmware hack can grant the Google Phone high-def camcorder skills. Currently available for Nexus One handsets running Android 2.1, and with a test version for those running 2.2 Froyo on their phone, it allows for recording at up to 1280 x 720 resolution.
On the list for some tweaking are improvements in fps and audio quality, though you can see a demo video of what's possible below (make sure to choose 720p from the quality menu, so as to see the full effect). Full instructions and download links are here; let us know how you get on!
