2:02 PM/ET: Andy Rubin says there is no message to iPhone users. Choice is good, he says. Period.
2:01 PM/ET: If you have an ATT GSM simcard , you can buy the Nexus One, pop it in, and use it as of today. However, the phone will run on EDGE speeds, and not 3G.
2:00 PM/ET: First question: why only 512MB for apps storage? Andy Rubin says it will expand. Phone ships as of today.
1:59 PM/ET: On stage now for some Q&A is Mario Queiroz, Andy Rubin, Peter Chou, and Sanjay Jha from Motorola was supposed to be here, but he's stuck in traffic. Ugh.
1:57 PM/ET: Showing a video now of the phone. Looks like a TV commercial, but it's not clear this will run as an actual commercial. Seems too long to be a TV ad, but I'm sure you'll be seeing this all over the web.
1:55 PM/ET: Recapping now. Nexus One is the first of a series of phones that Google is working on with its partners, including HTC and Motorola.
1:54 PM/ET: That quick, that easy, says Google to order up the phone from a Google hosted webstore. It launches in the US, but test markets include the UK, Singapore and Hong Kong.
1:52 PM/ET: All of these versions, plans and pricing will be available through the Google webstore. And shoppers will be able to use Google CheckOut to pay for it.
1:51 PM/ET: The Verizon version will be available in the Spring. Some people are very excited to buy a CDMA phone from Verizon, he says. Vodaphone will also make Nexus One available in Spring.
1:51 PM/ET: An unlocked Nexus One phone will cost $529. The T-Mobile version will cost $179 with 2-year contract.
1:50 PM/ET: Now showing screen shots of the webstore. Still awaiting pricing, though Mario says it'll be comparable to high-end smart phones already on the market, on a subsidized basis.
1:48 PM/ET:Verizon Wireless and Vodaphone will be offering this phone.
1:47 PM/ET: Through the webstore, you can buy a phone with service, it'll be subsidized and available today from T-Mobile . The Google webstore is at www.google.com/phone
1:46 PM/ET: Mario back on stage. "Welcome to the Super Phone class." How to bring it to market? A new way to purchase a phone: a Google hosted online store.
1:45 PM/ET: Voice meets Google Earth! Say "Mt. Fuji" and the phone "flies" you to striking imagery of the mountain. That's pretty cool. (I hope this thing has amazing battery life.)
1:41 PM/ET: Highlighting voice recognition and text to speech. From getting phone numbers to directions, but now Google offers total voice enabling for every text field on the phone.
1:38 PM/ET: Working with Cool Iris, Google unveils "Gallery," a beautiful photo gallery management program, that let's the photos even interact with the device's accelerometer. Multiple ways of viewing the images on the screen.
1:36 PM/ET: Now talking digital media and entertainment and 3D. App Launcher has a neat interface. The way the apps move up and down on the screen. Think the opening sequence of Star Wars, the way the words traveled on the screen.
1:34 PM/ET: More personalization: Live Wallpaper is very cool. Dynamic, moving, sitting behind all the other apps. And its interactive. Customization, personalization. Showing a water surface interacting with falling leaves and rippling. Neat.
