It is slightly thinner and lighter than the iPhone 3GS, has rounded edges and corners and feels good to hold.
It has contacts on the back for a possible docking station of some kind.
The screen is very impressive -- much more so than that of the iPhone 3GS and the Motorola Droid. It is also very bright.
It has virtual sound meters that keep track of ambient noise, and the background of the home screen is interactive.
Gizmodo concludes, "In the end, it's still an Android phone. If you want Android phones, this is the one to get, provided Google goes ahead with the rumored plans of either selling it themselves or partnering with T-Mobile in a more traditional role. Droid, shmoid; Nexus is the one you're looking for."
Rumors currently suggest that the device will be available as soon as January 5 on an invitation-only basis. Yeah, that sounds like Google, all right.
