Hmm. The fresh look of a brand new, high res display, on a brand new, thin and good looking phone, with a refreshed UI. Ahem, the second shot of how thin it is, is after the break. [Via BGR]

The Seagate Momentus Thin. The world’s slimmest hard drive is — wait for it — 7mm. That’s right, 7 millimeters, and it will ship in pretty big sizes too. 160 GB and 250 GB versions will be shipping out to OEMs for use in netbooks next month, and will appear at the CES in the same month. Pricing is expected to be much cheaper than 1.8″ hard drives, and because of that you might see this 5400RPM, 8MB cache, SATA 3Gbps hard drive in the netbook sitting on your desk. Check out the press shots below. [Hot Hardware]
The HTC Legend Hero look-alike is straight out of the leaked roadmap from not too long ago, has some pretty decent specs. It uses a Qualcomm MSM7227 processor, with the CPU clocking in at 600MHz; internal memory is 512MB with 256MB RAM; 1500 mAh battery; 3.2-inch HVGA AMOLED capacitive touchscreen; 5.0-megapixel camera with autofocus and LED flash; microSD slot; Bluetooth 2.1; GPS; G-sensor; digital compass; 3.5mm headphone port; and last but not least an optical trackpad along with a miniUSB port. Now one more thing I’d like to know HTC — will it still have that LaptopMemo green chin when it comes out in March 2010?

The Google Nexus One is currently being tested by the FCC, more importantly, the FCC is calling it the “Nexus One”. Meaning it might be a step closer to finding out the real name of well, the Google Phone. The model number is PB99100, the HTC-built “NEXUSONE” (as it’s listed) uses quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE, with UMTS/HSUPA on 850/1700/1900 frequencies. That means the Nexus One will be able to use 2Mbps upload speeds and 7.2Mbps download speeds.
Another thing found out in the report is that it looks like it’s based on T-Mobile’s network because of the radio bands that were noted. Interesting to say the least, right?
Hey Googlers, congrats on that phone Google gave you. From the shots that your fellow Googlers gave we were able to tell only mildly what the Google Phone (aka Nexus One) looks like. That’s why we here at LaptopMemo are counting on you to send us your photos or videos of your brand new phone. The reward is that you’ll be thanked, and honored for giving tips to the “13-year-old Gadget Blogger Entrepreneur”.

Want more Google Phone/HTC Passion/Nexus One pics? Well here’s the second new pic of the Nexus, and on the screen you can see that the app icons look exactly like Android 2.1 should. So for now, enjoy the Nexus One half-face shot from above.
That’s right. The Google Phone website nexusone.com is a registered domain, but not a full featured website. This probably means tha,t the Google Phone is really called Nexus One. Of course, right now everything with the Nexus 1 is full of rumors, but things are getting closer to being official, don’t ya think?
UPDATE: According to one commenter, the nexusone,com domain name has been registered since 1998. So now why would Google use a name that is basically being used? The true name of the Google Phone is probably in limbo again.
It’s getting better every minute. A certain Cory O’Brien, a account manager at a San Francisco Bay Area marketing agency, isn’t listed by Google as a client, but he has the Google Phone (aka Nexus One).
What’s interesting is that the Nexus One is in fact the HTC Passion found in October, and which from everyone’s confusion turned into the HTC Bravo, which is also supposed to come to the States in January. Either way, firing up a “Nexus One” search in Picasa brings you several photos of the phone and those “mobile labs”.
As much as this conflicts with earlier reports, the Wall Street Journal is claiming that the Google Phone is in fact called the Nexus One. That feels robotic-like, doesn’t it? A name that feels like it comes from the future and can go well with Android. One more thing that has been figured out with the Google Phone (or Nexus 1) is that it will be sold online, directly from Google.
I’ll be updating or writing new posts if anything new happens, in the meantime this is all you guys have to know, but if you’re really into it, here’s a quick recap of the Google Phone (HTC Passion, Nexus 1, or whatever it’s called.)
What we know so far about the Google Phone is in the list after the jump.
