HTC has created hype around its
wn phone to rival Apple with its iPhone - and it has better specs on nearly every feature with the Nexus One. But is it enough to sway public opinion? In an attempt to show itself as a mobile manufacturer in its own right, Google has released the Nexus One, a handset built by HTC but branded solely as a Google phone. Despite some well-publicized problems with customer support and keypad malfunctions - neither of which became an issue during our testing process - the Nexus One is actually a stellar smartphone, easily the match of its peers. Everyone likes to talk about the next iPhone killer - in reality, Android OS phones are content with second place, beating competitors like Nokia, Palm, Windows Mobile and RIM s BlackBerry OS.
