Nexus One may start with invite-only sales

New Google phone would reach T-Mo later

Google's Nexus One may have only a very limited release scale at first, based on a document leak. A tip to Engadget supports talk of a January 5th release date but that initial sales may be limited only to invitation customers. These may include registered Android developers, but whether it's any developers or just those who already own a previous developer phone like the Dev Phone 1 or Ion is less certain.

The same contact does reiterate that T-Mobile will sell the HTC-engineered phone directly, but likely only at a later point. Some rumors would have the Nexus One subsidized on a contract and therefore behave like any other Android phone.

Specs for the Android 2.1 accompany news of the sales plan and reiterate what's already known. It should be the most advanced touch-only phone of the type to date with native T-Mobile 3G, a 3.7-inch AMOLED display, a 1GHz Snapdragon processor and a 5-megapixel camera. A large 512MB of RAM and a bundled 4GB microSDHC card would help it handle complex apps, while claims that it's thinner than an iPhone appear to be true as it measures just over 0.45 inches thick versus Apple's 0.48 inches.
