Some highlights of the tear-down include:

  • Despite not being directly user-replaceable, the battery seems to be dead easy to get at.
  • Chips from a whole host of vendors, including Qualcomm, Broadcom, Skyworks, TI, Samsung, Synaptics, Atmel, and Audience.
  • The 3.7-inch (diagonal) WVGA AMOLED touchscreen is made by Samsung, the same screen supplier as for Microsoft's Zune HD.
  • Qualcomm is the chip winner for the Nexus One, having three of the largest-profile chips in the device: processor, power management chip, and RF transceiver.
  • The 802.11n capability gives the Nexus an advantage over the iPhone 3GS, which only has 802.11g. The Broadcom BCM4329 chip in the Nexus is the same chip found in Apple's newest (3rd generation) iPod touch, and also has Bluetooth and FM transceiver functionality.
