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.

The whole handset measures 119 x 59.8 x 11.5 mm and weighs 130g with the standard 1,400mAh battery.  It has 512MB each of flash and RAM, comes with a 4GB microSD card and is compatible with up to 32GB microSDs.  Along with the WiFi a/b/g/n there’s Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, A-GPS, various sensors, active noise cancellation with a second microphone and a three-color clickable trackball.  OS is Android 2.1 and there’s a 5-megapixel autofocus camera with LED flash.

Meanwhile, the French have managed to acquire a pre-release Nexus One and shoot the slightly blurry 5 minute video you can see below.  Journal du Geek commenter Bruce confirms that there’s no Flash support in the Nexus One browser and – as we already knew – no multitouch support, but that the whole thing is “very very very smooth”; more of his photos here.
