Nexus One: Lacks Multitouch? More Hands On Details

Nexus One has been generating more headlines ever than any other anticipated tech product launch. One of the lucky ones who have got hold of Nexus One or Google Phone, TNKGRL has posted some interesting observations about her experiences with Nexus One. One imp thing that came out of this was the lack of Multitouch in the webkit browser or Google Maps.
Below is the list of what she posted on her blog.

– It’s extremely thin
– It’s much nicer looking in person than in pictures
– There’s a 4 GB micro-SD card installed
– The battery capacity is 1400 mAh
– The screen appears to be OLED (same size/resolution as the Motorola Droid)
– 3G works on T-Mobile USA 🙂
– I can confirm that there’s no 3G on AT&T (EGDE only)
– It’s definitely unlocked
– It’s super snappy! Faster than the Droid…
– There’s no multitouch support in the browser or in Google Maps
– There’s no dedicated camera key, but it’s the same camera interface as the Droid
– The trackball can be used to focus (like on other HTC devices)
– Low-light performance is decent, but the flash is weak
– Calls are routed the normal way, not using data (VoIP), and sound fine
– The home screen is divided into 5 panes (like the Sense interface on the HTC Hero)
– It’s using a micro-USB connector for data/power
– There are some gold contacts at the bottom edge, for a dock perhaps?
– Did I mention it’s fast?
