    Google were asked about why only 512mb of storage, the initial reply was that this was to protect the apps from piracy #lame - However they also said they are working on encrypting the app data so that the apps can be stored on SD.

    Think the voice recognition looked the most impressive feature, however I've had this on previous phones and never ever used it. Not like I used it once and it was rubbish - I never used it.

    Encrypting Java apps? That'll be super speedy then...

    Doesnt the iphone? I know the apps are encrypted but not sure if they are silly enough to install them unencryted as jailbreak iphones can easily extract them and pass them on. I just thought the illegal apps were just drm broken ones.

    Objective-C is considerably faster than Java. My point is Java is a pretty slow language in my experience - the apps I have on my android phone already have some speed issues.

    I like the nexus but I also like the droid too. The 3g iphone is annoying me now with the batt life etc. I hate the fact that I can leave say bluetooth on to autolink to the car or even really use 3g without it dying now. I wish apple would wake the hell up and allow you to replace you OWN batteries! I hate the way how everything apple nowadays wont let you replace the batteries and their only arguement is "you wont have to blah blah" but yet I bet my iphone would have a bit better life if I did replace its battery.
    Roll on the EU directive to force all devices to have replacable batteries!

    The only thing holding me back really is CES and the possible annoucement of the 4g iphone at the end of the month.

    What do you mean? It is easy to replace the battery in the 3G

    Got one on order

    I replaced my iPhone 3G about 2months ago with a HTC Hero. Very good move on my part, can't see myself moving back to iPhone anytime soon now i have played with android OS, so i had to get my hands on the nexus one.

    Just bought Blackberry Bold 9700 and well impressed, it does everything i need in communication plus more, I did look at the G2 but was not impressed with the shape of it plus I much prefer a full querty keyboard.

    I do think that this new google phone is just what people will be wanting as it is not carrier fixed which in my eyes is the way forward i feel.
