That’s right, humans — Engadget has its very own Nexus One. You’ve seen leaked pics and videos from all over, but we’re the first publication to get our very own unit, and we plan on giving you guys the full story on every nook and cranny of this device. In case you’ve been living under a rock, here’s the breakdown of the phone.
