Google Nexus One $180 with contract tips leaked purchase page

Today's Google Nexus One rumors really add some meat to the bones of the Android 2.1 smartphone, and with the upcoming "media gathering" - which SlashGear will be attending to bring you back all the juicy details - just a week away we've finally got some solid pricing details.  Both Gizmodo and Engadget have been sent leaked screenshots from what their respective tipsters claim to be the Google.com/phone sales page, suggesting a $530 unsubsidized price or - if you're willing to sign up to a two-year agreement with T-Mobile; more plan details after the cut - a subsidized $180.

T-Mobile leak confirms “Google Android Phone” in early January

Leaky T-Mobile is spilling Google Nexus One details this morning, with both BGR and TmoNews receiving internal screenshots from the carrier.  Both show the same page from T-Mobile's StreamLine employee systems, which suggest that "Google, with support from T-Mobile, is scheduled to launch a new Android device in early January".  It goes on to confirm that Google will be distributing the Nexus One solely via the web, splitting hardware and tariff support between them and the carrier.

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.

HTC profiled: Android success and 95% “target failure rates”

Given they're the ODM behind the Google Nexus One, and that they're fast becoming one of the recognizable brands in smartphones, it seems like 2009 - and 2010 - really is HTC's coming-of-age.  Over at Wired they've been looking into what the company has done to rise from the ranks of OEMs, including setting a 95-percent "target failure rate" for its R&D division, to encourage faster idea generation, and slipping into bed early with Google.

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?

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....
