altCES1.jpgI love how our pals over at iFixit are always the first in line to buy new gadgets as they come to market, so they can race them back to the shop to take them apart and find out what makes them tick. Their excitement and curiosity is almost palpable, and of course, we all benefit from what they find. Kyle and company just plunked down a princely 530 bones for the exploratory thrill of field-stripping the Google Nexus One.

The Nexus One, manufactured by HTC, is the latest and greatest Android phone. It sports:

* A 1 GHz Qualcomm (QCOM) Snapdragon processor.
* A 3.7″ 480×800 widescreen WVGA AMOLED display.
* A 5MP digital camera w/ LED flash that also records .mp4 video.
* 802.11n wireless capability for when you can’t depend on 3G.
* 7 hours of 3G talk time from a removable 3.7V, 1400 mAh lithium battery.
