What is it with people and those keyboards? I've never been able to ge my head around it, I guess since I never had a keyboard and went straight to the iPhone it doesn't bother me. Just can't get why it's such a deal breaker for some.

I think this phone blows away the iPhone. Maybe the UI isn't as polished, but the speed and 'connectedness' of all the all applications is amazing. Don't forget about that amazing OLED screen.
I am quite disappointed at its 3G problems and lack of flash and support.

Well since I am on ATT, I don't use 3G (since the Nexus doesn't support their network) but I can imagine it must be frustrating.

As for flash, there are many confirmed rumors that it's coming very soon. Especially since flash support is on the HTC Desire with Sense UI.

You should take a look at Swype input for the Nexus.


I type much faster than I did with my BlackBerry, iPhone or the default Nexus touch keyboards.

Here are instructions to install it:

Very cool. I smashed my iPhone the other day and am in the market for a new phone. Hopefully the new iPhone is more of an upgrade than the 3GS was...

I also can't wait to see what the iPhone "4G" has in store for us. Although, it will probably be released very late in June/Early July so iPhone 3GS sales don't drop.

Here's some more info for Flash on the Nexus One.

http://www.boygeniusreport.com/2010/...tc-desire-rom/

Proves that you can do it so long as you root your phone and install another ROM. It's probably easier to wait for the next update than void your warranty...

it's pretty hard to brick your phone by rooting. it's so easy to do and you can always go back to unrooting it. custom rom is the way to go. been modifying my wife's droid for a while now. i'm still waiting on nexus one to get to verizon (or wutever all touchscreen verizon will have next, not the devour)

speaking of the Nexus One. I really liked the phone, but its still lacking and does not give you this whole "iPhone experience". It also does not do 3G on AT&T network

Are you kidding, the 3GS was a huge upgrade in speed alone. Try going back to a 3G or earlier iPhone. It's painful.
