A few weeks back, when details and rumors about the Nexus One were starting to dribble out, we did a technical specifications-only comparison between it, the iPhone, and the Moto Droid (click here for a refresher).
Since then, Google announced complete details about the Nexus (exemplar, superphone in Google speak) — specifically, that you could buy the phone unlocked directly from Google for a hefty US$529.99, or through T-Mobile for only US$179.99 plus a two-year contract. Which got us thinking: how do those numbers compare with the competition?
Following today’s announcement by Google of its first smartphone, the Google Nexus One, consumers are already pondering this question: What’s the difference between the Google Nexus One, the Apple iPhone, the Palm Pre and the Motorola Droid?
BillShrink has put together a very handy comparison chart that looks at each of these 4 smartphones and lists the differences in all key features.
There are a few obvious differences – the iPhone still lacks multitasking while the Android devices have fewer apps – but for the most part, the devices are fairly similar on paper.
