DISASSEMBLED: Google's Nexus One

Google's Nexus One might have disappointed us when it comes to innovation or ground breaking new features but that doesn't mean we don't want to see what it's got going on under the hood. I mean, sure, we know it has a 3.7" 480x800 AMOLED display, a 1GHz Snapdragon CPU, a 5 megapixel camera with an LED flash, and a removable battery that offers up to 7 hours of 3G talk time but what does that all look like?

The fabulous folks over at iFixit have torn Google's first phone asunder and put together a handy slideshow of the whole process. Check it out below.

For a full, step-by-step guide or to see the individual images, head on over to iFixit.

    Anyways, it's pretty awesome to see the guts of the system.

    I really enjoyed the music. It went really well with the teardown.

    I guess I am glad I stopped waiting and got the G1, because I hate touch screen keyboards, and with specs like and the battery looks almost the same as the one in my G1 I'm pretty sure its gonna have horrid battery life while using apps etc. I love the "battery that offers up to 7 hours of 3G talk time" especially the "up to" part... I'm sure if I wanted to just talk on the phone I would have bought a cheaper phone...

    I liked the video as well, very nicely done video. Might make a good replacement for my Omnia if I can find all the right apps. The 3.5mm Headphone jack is the best part IMHO.

    First of all the G1 is a joke. When it came out if was met with a yawn. It's the slowest, oldest, most primitive android phone out there. And I can assure you the 1Ghz Snapdragon doesn't have the battery of the 2+ year old G1. At it's release it couldn't even come close to the competition.

    Android is now a contender with the DROID, Nexus One and more modern Android drive phones. The G1 was a early adopters flop.
