    It has mechanical autofocus. Maybe yours is broken??

    No noises here though....

    i got the exchange from HTC this morning, brand new nexus one but i hear the same vibrating noise....anyone? if you tap at the back of the phone right next to the camera, you should hear it.

    Yes. I noticed it today. It's a very light noise. My understanding it's the accelerometer...? I don't think it will cause any problems...

    I guess it is the vibrator for the silent mode?

    I think I posted this elsewhere. We had this on the Hero forum. It's common and doesn't seem to be a problem. My Hero did it and My Nexus one does it.

    Must be an HTC thing...

    I guess that is normal. I tried the Goggles and the Barcode Scanner, both they have that noise when the camera opens again after listing the searching result.

    Its the sound of the mechanical autofocus when it power on in goggle or any camera related program.
