Mobile Gyaan Verdict:

Before I consider either phone for the final verdict, I would like to let you know that both these phones are still officially unavailable in India. So, if you want one, you have to procure it from abroad or shop from sites such as Ebay.

Besides that, the Google Nexus S is far more advanced with the Android 2.3 OS and in-built 16 GB memory with additional features such as an anti-fingerprint display coating. As far as the Nexus One is concerned, it was a huge success immediately after its release but it has become slightly outdated now since its been almost a year since it came into the market.
