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

    Nothing really, I have a HTC Hero that I only got 2ish months ago and works well.


    True the tech on the phone can be found on other phones but this is the first time I have seen most if not all the tech I wanted on one device, its 1ghz processor (Snapdragon processor) and 512Mb RAM, I suppose being the main two.

    I used the iPhone 2g then the 3G, moving to HTC Hero few months back, I just can’t believe how much I love the simple thing of multitasking. My Hero can get a bit slow when i have Twitter running, MSN, email... 24/7, turn the satnav on and you find it’s a bit slow on telling me to turn.

    Also the price was good (off contract).

    I would not say to everyone to go out and get one. Well, simply i don’t want to have a phone everyone has

    Having got the iPhone shipped to me on day of UK launch, I would guess I’m just a so called "early adopter" to.

    It's an interesting point and makes me a little sceptical about the engadget article.

    I thought the whole point of the way google was selling it was you buy it through the google site and then pick the plan you want, whether it be contract with the likes of vodafone or sim free and then you pick? If that's the case then surely it will be the same device with the same firmware?

    Anyway, I need to wait for my credit card to clear before I order one, couple more weeks I guess.

    I brought it from the Google Phone Shop in the US. You pay in sterling and had no problems whatsover. Pretty slick and easy.
    I brought it sim free. All phones are unlocked as standard.

    Ye, I noticed the nexus one on eBay going for way over what I paid. I have not heard of any shortage from Google, only people I can see buying them would be people outside of the shipping areas Google set.

    Almost tempted to buy another and sell.

    Did any of you have to pay the 6.5% import duty?

    If you didn't, what usually happens is that Customs bill you for it... I bought a laptop part a while back - $40 for the part, and I ended up paying £30 in tax/duty when it got here...
