Last week Google announced the release of the Google Nexus One Smartphone.

The Google Nexus One has been released directly from Google and isn’t Carrier specific.
Of course, the Nexus One is running the Google Android Operating system.

Google’s Android Operating system is available on 20 devices on 59 carriers in 28 countries and 19 languages. Because Android is free, naturally, it is being quickly adopted by many smartphone manufacturers, thus giving it a good foothold as a mobile operating system around the World.

With the release of the Nexus One, Google is well any truly putting their mark on the mobile device market.

This is the first in a series of phones that Google plans on selling. Claiming that they plan to make buying a phone simple, with purchasing, simple services plans from operators and simple delivery and startup.
With it being Google, I can see simple being true.

Currently the Nexus One alone is priced at $529. With a T-Mobile plan you’ll pay $179. Verizon and Vodaphone are set to pick up the device in Spring of 2010.

Here’s what Google has to say about the Google Nexus One:

“Manufactured by HTC, the Nexus One features dynamic noise suppression from Audience, Inc., a large 3.7″ OLED display for deep contrast and brilliant colors and a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon™ chipset for blazing speeds. Running on Android 2.1, the newest version of Eclair, the software includes innovations like a voice-enabled keyboard so you can speak into any text field, fun Live Wallpapers, a 3D photo gallery for richer media experiences and lots more. Of course, it also comes with a host of popular Google applications, including Gmail, Google Voice and Google Maps Navigation.”
