Enter Google Nexus One

Not much eBook news around the Nexus One launch, which is too bad, given how much Google has tied up in eBooks. But the phone was officially unveiled yesterday. On the official Web page, Google shows off the phone’s slogan: Where Web Meets Phone. Again, this seems like a lost opportunity for Google to show off how its online book offerings can be integrated with a mobile device.

The video above is from Search Engine Land, which live blogged the event yesterday. It’s kinda funny.

What’s perhaps most relevant for eBook enthusiasts in terms of the lead up to Nexus One is how much accurate information bloggers and Web-sleuths were indeed able to gather before there was any official announcement. We can only hope as many rumors come true for the Apple tablet.
