    Nexus one.

    Who here is planning to get the nexus one once it comes out for Verizon?
    I've been looking around and checking out the phone and it seems to really have grown on me. I, for one, am anxious and excited to get it. I was wondering what fellow berryer's thought of the device. I was ready to get the droid but after checking comparisons the N1 is a way better device. What do you guys think?!

    I think you should ask yourself a couple of questions.
    First off, have you ever tried to contact Google concerning an issue with their product?

    My other question would be that if for some reason you did not like the device and decided to bite the bullet and pay the ETF knowing that you were going to sell the device at a later date, will you break even?

    Another issue that I have heard tossed about the boards is the fact that a Verizon Google device will only work on a Verizon network. Same as a T-Mo google device only working on a T-Mo network.

    Those are my initial thoughts.

    There is always that rumor of HTC Passion coming to vzw

    In regards to Nexus One, vzw in most cases does not like to give up control either...so I think it will be a little different with them.

    I have a friend that is getting the Nexus One, but, he said that most likely he wont keep it, simply because of Google's customer service..
    Which says a lot.. in my opinion..

    Seriously though,
    What does it say about a company that is breaking out the way Google is and to this day no one is able to call them.
    The purpose of this stategy is perplexing. We could all speculate as to why a company would choose to explore this avenue of customer support.

    I have to ask why would they even bother getting the device when they've already pre-disposed themselves to not keeping it? That honestly doesn't make any sense. They could save that money and pay a couple of car payments for me...

    Andoid = NOT all that. My sister told me today that as a device, the BlackBerry does email well and nothing else. This is from a person with an iPhone. 10 minutes later she asked to use my phone. Her iPhone had no signal.

    Google is going to be hard pressed to pull this off with the guidelines they are putting into their customers face.

    I am on the "N1 bandwagon" as well but I will not actually make the purchase until 2-3 months after its release. I need to read a lot of feedbacks prior to wasting my time w/etfs or returns. I am very satisfied w/my S2 but if N1 does something "Extraordinary" then I may consider. With the S3 rumor, am hoping the two devices drop relatively close. Berry pretty much rule email service, but if we (berry)users can get a much faster web browser, I don't know if "real" berry addicts will ever cross over for sure.IMHO obviously...

    So I have had about every phone known to mankind including every Blackberry, iPhone, Pre, and various Android devices. After using the Nexus one for the last few weeks this is by far the best device I have ever used. A lot of people cast dispersions on devices they have never owned or even used. Which to be honest is quite sad. I was skeptical at first about the Nexus and especially TMO but as a phone this is the best sounding phone I have ever used. I even popped in my ATT SIM card and call quality remained crystal clear. As a business owner I really heavily upon email. The device does email just fine. It worked perfectly with my server, I get push email, calendar and contact sync etc. On top of that the Snapdragon processor just puts all other phones to shame. It is a shame that google does not offer technical support but honestly how much support does VZW offer. So before knocking a device, give it a shot first instead of assuming, as assumption is the mother of all screw ups.

    I'd sort of rather have the device without the Google monicker. I was looking forward to a SenseUI phone built on this hardware.
    Honestly, I *really* like my Storm, it's just slow. I've used my wife's Droid, and the browsing experience is just light years ahead. Bigger screen, better resolution, better compatibility, more memory, faster processor... I'm in love with the clicky screen and messaging abilities -- I'd hate to give it up, but unless RIM can give do a lot better in a hurry, I'm gonna have a hard time resisting the pull. Web browsing is just too high a priority for me.
    .75 -> .148 -> .151 Hybrids -> v5
    Better and better!

    I've played around with both the Droid and the N1; and although the N1 has better specs, I'm actually really liking the slide-out keypad that the Droid has; it makes walking and typing a lot easier =)

    Nexus One is undoubtedly a good-looking device. I liked it Android software that users won't find in other devices running that OS. It is a very good piece with excellent features. It also has a new feature called Live Wallpapers,which helps users customize the background image on their phones.
