    David Pogue's review of the Nexus One is an interesting read. Personally I think I'll wait for the 4th gen iPhone or the Nexus Two.

    Bah! Not shipped yet. But I ordered it 8 hours ago! I wonder if it's a scam?

    It seems only non-US Nexus One's will have multi-touch due to an Apple patent in the US.

    Good news for people in the UK. However, Google are shipping US phones to UK customers so if you really want the multi-touch feature it might be better to wait until Vodafone sell it.

    Well, it's still not shipped yet! I may just cancel and wait until the UK release. Mind you, I wouldn't use teh multi-touch anyway. I was very impressed with the video of it on The Register today though

    Surely HTC won't be making two different handsets... I would imagine multi-touch would be down to software rather than anything else.

    Just taken delivery of my Nexus One.

    Its got to have a good charge before use, so not played with it just yet. But I can hold out

    Feels good in the hand and has a good weight.

    Mine is now shown as being dispatched. Hopefully have it by Monday before I leave for BETT. As for multi touch, I agree with Ric. They will most likely have it disabled via software, and if this is the case I can guarantee what the most popular hack for the Nexus is going to be!

    May not be much help, but there is a thread on google support page regarding MT.

    MultiTouch to come in an Upgrade? - Google Mobile Help

    P.S. This was DHL record of the order.

    I ordered on the 6th, but it was only listed as dispatched yesterday. I REALLY hope I get it for Monday.

    Can I ask, what feature(s) made you order the phones so quickly? Just curious, as although I have not looked into it in any great depth, I can't see anything that isn't available elsewhere etc?

    I'm not trying to talk the phone down at all, don't get me wrong, just curious

    You're correct in that it's purely down to the firmware/software. However, if you have a US NexusOne phone the only way to add MT would be to wait for the hopefully soon-to-be released CyanogenMod for the N1 (and void your warranty in the process) or wait until Google enable it themselves in an update at some point in the future. I guess it really depends upon how important MT is to you.
