This has long been a rumor and now it's finally here. Google is all set to launch its own Android-powered smartphone Nexus One.

Google is geared-up for the press conference on Tuesday, which marks the debut of the much awaited Google's first smartphone, Nexus One. As it is Google's first time to market such phone, the expectations set upon the mighty search engine company is relatively high.

Let's take a look at its features (sources courtesy of Wired and Engadget).

1) Nexus One was designed by HTC, which has a close relationship with Google.

2) It has a 5-megapixel camera with LED flash, Wi-Fi connectivity, accelerometer, compass and proximity sensors.

3) The phone is also told to be extremely thin — slimmer than the iPhone and HTC’s Droid Eris.

4) 1-GHz Snapdragon CPU, a 3.7-inch 480 x 800 display, 512 MB of of RAM and an expandable 4-GB microSD card.

The 1-GHz processor alone should make the Nexus one of the fastest smartphones available currently. says Wired.

5) Powered by Android 2.1, the latest version of the operating system, which is reportedly to be snappier and have an improved user interface.

So far these are exciting features that one would expect from Googles first smartphone, but there's not much to compare it with other smartphones, except of course with the speed and memory capacity. But shouldn't that be the two most important things?
