Google Introduces the Android Phone Gallery


Google’s putting the Nexus One’s old domain to good use as they’ve just launched their own online Android phone comparison tool that features Android handsets that deliver the best Google experience (which means all of the Google services and Android market must be intact.) Their definition of best shortens this list a whole lot as they’ve undoubtedly focused on pushing the high-end handsets (there’s a good balance of high-end and mid-range, but I like to think they’re just saying “well you get an A for effort.”)


You can filter phones by country, manufacturer, and carrier and get a side-by-side glimpse of how one phone stacks up against up to two more. They say they’ll be adding more over time from different countries, manufacturers, and carriers, but this is a decent start to what could become a great destination for people looking for Android phones. Oh, and US Cellular is up on the list of their featured operators. Is it safe to say we have five major carriers in the United States now? I mean, it’s Google: If they say it, it must be true. Head on to Google.com/phone to get started.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. I must say that this is a big leap forward on the part of google. I think that once they add Canada you will start to see more leaks from this site, you will start to see the phones be released there, and a lot of rumors put to waste on that site.

  2. Yes, U.S. Cellular is the 5th largest carrier in the US.

  3. I know they’re the 5th largest, but they’re often excluded from conversations about the US’s largest carriers. Only T-Mobile, Sprint, AT&T, and Verizon are considered the “big national carriers.”

  4. Notice they have the Galaxy S phones from AT&T, Sprint, and T-mobile, but not Verizon’s Fascinate listed on the site.

  5. @me because it’s not a Google Experience phone.

  6. the other Samsung’s aren’t either, though. They have a bunch of phones that don’t say “With Google”, so that can’t be the reason.

  7. According to Google Mobile Blog: “All the phones in the gallery include Android Market, Google Search, and other Google Mobile services such as Gmail, Maps, and YouTube.”

    I really hope Verizon/Samsung find this smack in the face fascinating! It’s well deserved.

    “Google’s putting the Nexus One’s old domain to good use…Head on to Google.com/phone to get started”

    Not to be nit-picky, but the domain is Google.com, and as far as I know Google has never not put it to good use.

    Well, maybe it *is* to be nit-picky.

  8. And where’s the G1 and G2?

  9. It lists the EVO with 2.1 OS. It’s been upgraded for awhile now, but I guess new units are shipping with 2.1 still?

  10. Where’s my carrier Cellular South.I know were’re small but we have the Desire,Milestone,and Hero.

  11. I don’t think the new Evos are shipping with 2.1. I have a friend just got one with 2.2 and she would not have known how to upgrade it. Unless they did it for her at the store.
