Does anyone believe that these leaks aren’t orchestrated by Google? Today Gizmodo and Engadget both got leaked information about the Nexus One handset from Google. 

Gizmodo got to play with one and compare it to the iPhone and the Droid.  The Nexus One is thinner and lighter than the iPhone with a faster processor and better screen according to Editor, Jason Chen.  The results on web browsing speed were pretty close, however, even though the Nexus one has a bigger screen.  Gizmodo said the 3.7 inch AMOLED screen was the best they’ve ever seen on a smartphone.

Engadget, meanwhile got the hard specs on the device, which don’t reveal many surprises but confirm a lot of the speculation.  They also got word that it will have an invite-only retail sales start on January 5th.
