Google Nexus One vs Apple iPhone 3GS

Smartphone showdown: How Google's offering compares to Apple's high-end iPhone

Under the covers, part 1: processing power. Nexus One runs the Android 2.1 operating system on the Qualcomm QSD8250 Snapdragon chip [shown at right in this picture], a powerful yet low-powered 1GHz mobile CPU (also in HTC's HD2 and Toshiba TG01 smartphones). It's based on the same ARM Cortex-A8 core as the iPhone 3GS's Samsung S5PC100 chip, at 600 MHz.
