iPhone is Vintage to Nexus One Superphone?

Since the first rumours of Google putting out the much hyped Google Nexus One there have been questions as to whether Google has come up with the mystical iPhone killer, and according to an article over on mobileblog it may well be.

They say technically the iPhone 3GS is a “vintage” handset in this new generation of smartphones due to the iPhone having a non-removable battery, lacking a physical keyboard, no 720p HD video recording, and expandable memory.

They also note that spec wise the Google Nexus One is “leagues above the iPhone,” however the iPhone still delivers a degree of usability the Nexus One can’t match, especially when it comes to music.

The Google Nexus One may be the “iPhone killer” many look for but the handset should not just beat the iPhone with specs but needs to out perform the iPhone when it comes to customer appeal and so far the iPhone commands that area so it will be at least next year before the Nexus One can be really called an iPhone killer if is manages to claim the same sales; any bets?

    I don’t care how great they are or how much they can do. Look at technology today, most phones through every phone service company still do not work for crap most of the time. The service signal you get no matter who your with is appalling and nothing is being done other than, we are working on it. Maybe if just one company got it right and signal was there all the time they would really have something.

    It features a zippy 1-GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, which Google says enables the phone to seamlessly run multiple applications at once. A trackball allows users to navigate the interface, and also uses different colored lights to send various alerts — such as a new call or e-mail message. It also sports a 3.7-inch touchscreen AMOLED display with a native resolution of 480 x 800 pixels, a 5-megapixel camera, 512 MB of RAM and ROM, and a microSD slot that’s expandable up to 32 GB of storage.
