Google's Nexus One got a big time endorsement over the weekend from Linux kernel developer Linus Torvalds, who blogged about the Android-based smartphone being "a winner."

Torvalds writes that he isn't much of a phone fan (he finds them distracting), and that he got an original G1 phone from Google but only uses it for playing games on long flights. But the Linux-based Nexus One grabbed his attention. He calls it "a pretty good-looking gadget" and bought one last week.

"I have to admit, the Nexus One is a winner. I wasn't enthusiastic about buying a phone on the internet sight unseen, but the day it was reported that it finally had the pinch-to-zoom thing enabled, I decided to take the plunge. I've wanted to have a GPS unit for my car anyway, and I thought that google navigation might finally make a phone useful," Torvalds writes. [More...] [Comments...]
