Since I’ve stated my desire for a Snapdragon-powered Android device for the past few months now, the Google Nexus One is definitely on my radar. But it’s not yet available, which means a current Android purchase would be for something like the HTC Hero or Motorola Droid. So just how does the Nexus One stack up in terms of size when compared to the Hero? HTC Nexus One has the goods and shows the physical difference between a Nexus One, a Hero and an Apple iPhone 3GS, just for good measure.

Even more exciting than the size comparisons is the above silent but telling video walk-through — it demonstrates the speed and fluidity of the user interface when paired with a speedy ARM processor like Qualcomm’s Snapdragon. At this rate, I might as well make a 2010 prediction right now — there’s a good chance I’ll be grabbing a Nexus One next year.

Looking good thus far, I might even give up my stance on hardware keyboards if this delivers the goods.
