Google quietly sent out preview units of its smart phone Nexus One in mid-December and details are emerging as its information embargo was lifted yesterday, reports Ad Age. Ad Age says press were not the only ones among lucky preview recipients, but also digital VIPs such as Union Square Ventures partner Fred Wilson. Wilson is among the first to post details about the phone, pointing out one nifty ability being that it can run multiple applications. The ability is an often-touted one as a leg-up over iPhone for all phones running Google’s mobile operating system Android. Wilson also pointed out that the phone s touch screen is missing a couple of iPhone’s neat abilities such as pinching to resize images and swiping to scroll. The phone is expected to be priced at about $180 with a contract through mobile carrier T-Mobile, or about $530 full price. Ad Age points to a full tech review of the Nexus One by Engadget, who reveals that the phone is built by HTC and powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon chip. Read more at Ad Age.
