Google have officially launched the Nexus One, and it's available to order through the search giant's new webstore.  As expected, Google have partnered with T-Mobile in the US to offer the HTC-built Nexus One; however, Google also revealed that, as of Spring 2010, the "superphone" will be available through Verizon Wireless in the US and Vodafone in Europe.  Unlocked, the GSM Nexus One is priced at $529 with free two-line engraving on the back, a case, wall-charger and USB cable; subsidized by T-Mobile, it drops to $179.  Both options are shipping now, and can be ordered and activated entirely online; Google will also ship the unlocked Nexus One to the UK, Singapore and Hong Kong, with other countries (and localized versions) promised soon.

Google Nexus One already rooted with Superboot

Googles revolutionary new phone the Nexus One has yet to be released and yet has already been hacked by a user over at the Android @ MoDaCo forums. A user named Paul has released a boot.img that, when flashed, will root your device the first time it is started up, entirely eliminating the need to flash your  system partition or mess with over writing the preinstalled ROM on your device. That eliminates much of the hassle that was involved with rooting Google's first Android device, the G1.

Google Nexus One Bluetooth car dock gets FCC tested

Yesterday the Bluetooth desktop dock, today the Bluetooth car dock; FCC filings for Google Nexus One accessories are cropping up with increasing regularity.  Described in the document as for the "Google Phone" - rather than the Nexus One, as the handset has always been referred to previously - the car dock looks, from the hastily slapped together diagram you can see after the cut, like a pretty straightforward in-car cradle.

Google Nexus One specs leak; Initial sales invite-only

Full specifications and some launch news tidbits for the Google Nexus One have emerged, and according to Engadget's source the first devices - from Google at least - will be offered by invitation only.  The first batch are likely going to developers, similar to how Google offered previous dev handsets, but those sales will be followed up by general T-Mobile USA availability.  The Nexus One will have a Qualcomm 1GHz QSD8250 processor, UMTS/HSPA 900/1700/2100 (i.e. only EDGE max on AT&T), WiFi a/b/g/n and a 3.7-inch WVGA AMOLED display.

Google Nexus One sightings increase; US & Euro orders from January 5th?

Google Nexus One sightings increase; US & Euro orders from January 5th?

The Google Nexus One sightings are getting pretty flagrant now, with lucky testers of the smartphone feeling free to whip them out in public.  Nick Starr has apparently seen three of them today, with two being toted in a Safeway line in San Francisco and another caught on camera in Starbucks.

Meanwhile MoDaCo founder Paul O'Brien is citing "inside info" on a January 5th 2010 release for the Google Nexus One, and the interesting news is that it's not just being pushed out in the US.  He claims would-be European owners of the Android 2.1 device will be able to pick one up on that same date early in the new year too.  No confirmed pricing as yet, however, but O'Brien says "it'll be very competitively priced" but that there'll be "no preorder available".  That seems to suggest - along with the increasingly frequent sightings - that the Nexus One is about ready to hit the virtual shelves.
