Nexus One January 5, 2010

I can’t say I care much that the new Google Phone “Nexus One” is not available in Canada.  Nor even that Google has a phone to sell for that matter.

What I am impressed by, though, is the marketing department’s (yes, them again) “virtual tour” of this new device.

They succeed at giving you a really good impression of what it looks like, how it would feel in your hand, how you would use it and to induce in the potential customer an almost tangible desire to own one.

This new gadget must be the only device to support all of AAC, MP3, Ogg Vorbis and WAV.  Why didn’t they throw in WMA while they were at it, I wonder?

because WMA files are usually much larger? A capacity concern, perhaps. Just my 1 cent😉
