Here's a brilliant article by Thomas Horn on Nexus:

The Google Nexus phone has, in many ways, helped revolutionise the mobile market in much the same way that the Apple iPhone has. It has also taken many hardware and software design cues from the iPhone, but then again so has nigh on every smartphone handset that we see today.

Apple's iPhone has undoubtedly been the catalyst that has changed the mobile market in ways that would have seemed so radical a few years back. If it wasn't for the iPhone, we might well have seen Android looking a lot more like the OS that graced BlackBerry devices.

The Google Nexus One was not the first Android phone to market, that was the T-Mobile G1. With manufacturers still seemingly unconvinced about creating devices for its new mobile OS, Google introduced the Nexus One to show developers just what the software could do.

Google had never planned on making the Nexus series into a staple of the annual smartphone diet. The original Nexus One handset was designed to give Android a push in the right direction, and nothing more. It obviously worked, as Android now holds over 70% of the mobile market in Europe.
