While Google’s Nexus One is a good phone, we normally wouldn’t be too bothered about someone purchasing one, since lots of people already do that. But when the person who makes the purchase is Linus Torvalds, father of Linux, which Google’s Android is based on, it’s certainly worth taking note. Aside from his celebrity status, there’s also the fact that he isn’t too fond of cell phones, already owning a G1, but using it mainly for playing games on long flights. Now it seems that with the inclusion of multi-touch to the Nexus One has finally made the phone cool enough for Linus to pick up. His reasoning is that he needed a GPS unit for his car, so the Google navigation would probably make it useful (and it did). We’re certainly excited about the Nexus One, and are certainly looking forward to see what other cool devices Google (and HTC) will be coming up with next.
