Can the Nexus One compete with the iPhone?

We all know that the Nexus One has finally arrived. We also know that this is the first Google branded smart phone in history, and the tension has been thick as the world awaits this piece of technological cake from a company that has been building a presence in the mobile phone industry with its open-sourced platform, Google Android.

But the real question is not whether the Nexus One will be successful, but whether it will actually compete with the iPhone? Well, there are a lot of things to consider, but here is what we know. First of all, we know that the iPhone comes from a company who knows mobile phones very well. Apple knows exactly what it is doing, and they have been putting out high-quality handsets now for years. Second, Google is up and coming in the field, not having the experience that Apple has.

But, Google has one thing working for it that could turn the tideā€¦ and that is Android. Android has been so successful that it has threatened the very life of Windows Mobile, and it has been a rising insect to iPhone ever since it has come to life. But can Google actually compete with one of the most popular Mobile devices on the market with the Nexus One? It is true that the world is waiting to see, but when it really comes down to it, what would motivate buyers to choose the Nexus One over the iPhone?

Well, for one, the Nexus One will sell for a scant $180 with a two year agreement. Now, that is pretty darn cheap for a smart phone as advanced as the Nexus One! But will it be cheap enough to actually turn consumer heads?

The world just may not be ready for a smart phone like the Nexus One. Perhaps Google is going to end up like most other mobile phone makers. Playing second fiddle to a giant in the industry who cannot be toppled. But then again, maybe the world is growing tired of the iPhone, and growing more and more curious about this Android platform that everyone is talking about. Well, if they want Android, then the Nexus One is going to be a prime candidate.
