The Nexus One will probably be the first Android 2.1-powered device in the market and is definitely no slouch with a speedy 1GHz Snapdragon processor running at the helm.

Nexus One 3D Benchmark

However, one thing that’s not so well known about it is its 3D capabilities which is exactly what’s being highlighted in the video below. Using Qualcomm’s Neocore as the tool to benchmark its 3D performance, we have to admit, the Nexus One does a pretty remarkable job in this department at 26.7fps. It's probably not the best, but it's still a decent showing nonetheless.

This latest revelation will no doubt raise the stock value of the Nexus One. However, it’s a little disheartening to know that Google will only sell the Nexus One subsidized at $180 on a single T-Mobile plan option. Let’s just hope that this isn’t final yet and they’ll change their mind and offer it up under more consumer-friendly terms.
