Selling an old mobile could allow consumers to get the Nexus One

6 January 2010 — 11:55 AM

Consumers may want to sell their old mobile phone as Google has announced the launch of the Nexus One, which many experts are tipping to be a challenger to the Apple iPhone.

The handset is the latest Android powered phone on the market and will make use of the Android 2.1 operating system.

A range of pre-installed features are available on the mobile phone including Search, Maps, Gmail, YouTube and Google Talk.

The Nexus One also offers a five mp camera - in comparison to three mp on the iPhone - and built-in satellite navigation capabilities which cost extra on the Apple device.

A voice-enabled keyboard is also available on the handset and the Telegraph described it as the first version of the technology "that is genuinely useable".

The Nexus One is available for delivery from America for $529 (£324), plus $29.65 shipping (£18) and it is said the handset will be available on a UK Vodafone contract "within weeks".
