Nexus One Unboxing

nexus_one_unboxed_01

There should be little doubt that this phone is a Google branded experience.  Look at that box – there’s literally nothing on there save for the Google logo and Nexus One name.  Reminiscent of you-know-what.   The chaps at TechCrunch were passed 4 pictures of the Nexus One as well as quick bootup video.  Naturally, we felt obligated to share!

That UI is sexy, isn’t it?  That stock Android experience has come a long way since the G1!  Oh… and if you break out your Android handset and scan the barcode in the pic, you’ll be taken to http://www.android.com/holidays.  Random question – how does one scan the back of their own phone?

Thanks Benjamin!

    Dangit, the only thing in the QRcode on the back of the phone is a link to http://www.android.com/holidays

    With a mirror.

      Actually, that wouldn't work as it would "mirror" the image (switch left and right or up and down depending on the position of mirror relative to the QR code) and it would not be legible anymore.

      One way for Android to "bite its tail" would be to snap a photo of the QR code and than scan it right from the camera or computer screen.

      The geek in my had to reply to this. :-)

      Contrary to popular belief, not all googlers are geniuses. Especially the ones that leak confidential information to the internet.

    Someone try spoofing the Nexus One browser agent and try it?!

    We already know what it is, just a smal memory game.

  • WootRoot

    lol i can only imagine the google employees with a nexus

    "let me scan YOUR nexus, i want to play that game again"

    "no, let me scan YOURS!"

    Link only points to the memory game. Nothing to get excited about. However, seeing it in that packaging looks like it's not directly carrier-associated, which is a good thing.

      it's another proof it's a google phone (if you thought the box was just a photoshop job)

  • jiqqaman

    ummm remove the cover and scan with the phone….

  • http://twitter.com/TFJ4 @TFJ4

    Common sense to the rescue! I sure didn't think about that though!

  • ari-free

    OK OK it looks like there really is a Google phone

  • Fred Flintstone

    In order to scan the back of the phone without removing the cover you must take the phone to a location with extremely non-euclidean geometry. We have one of those in the Google main campus.

  • chris

    of course you do. are they hiring?

  • androidgeek

    Use a mirror!

  • ari-free

    yeah that or the non-euclidean geometry room

  • marc

    Anyone know the internal storage for apps yet?

  • Ricky

    To scan it can't u just take the battery cover off while the phone is on and take a picture??
