    Google Nexus One Phone

    If you aren't aware, Google are about to launch their own HTC built phone, complete with Android 2.01. More details here:
    GooglephoneNexus One leaks more news ? The Register

    Now, I've never been one for abusing the site as it's creator etc, but according to El Reg the first phones will be sold by invite only. As I know Google often visit I would like to take the opportunity to say 'Please, please, please let me have one? Shaun, our webmaster would like one too. We both think they are very shiny and Shauns iPhone is on it's last legs and now requires him to be no more than 10 feet away from a power outlet at any time, and please do't ask about my increasing frustration with Windows Mobile 6.0!!'
    In short, please give us an invite as we will be very good owners and not abuse them (for the first few months).

    Many thanks,

    Chris

    It's very rare I become a corporate whore, but for this I'm willing to make an exception. I'm also whoring Shaun by proxy

    If I publically allow you to whore me also, would that be some form of professional misconduct?
    (Either way I want the phone!)

    Can I have your old phones when you get your news ones as I'm sure they'll be better than my Omnia!

    regards

    Concur with Shauns woes.

    My iPhone used to last around 2-3 days, playing games, messing with apps and the likes, and now, its an utter pile of poo. It lasts no longer than 10 hours, I cannot mess around with apps without draining the battery I need to conserve to actually use it as a phone.

    Had my 3G for 24 months now, think its defiantly end of life and a 3GS is on the cards or alternative as battery life provides the best usability.

    I've got mixed views on the Nexus. It is a sleek and attractive phone, with what appears to be some nice updates to Android, but why on Earth does it only have 512MB of space for apps? Android doesn't install apps to the SD card in my experience, so it is a little small on that part.

    Not to mention that they make out that you can swap SD cards - but the fact that app configuration files are usually stored on these means you lose use of your configured apps if you don't copy the config files to every SD card you wish to use.

    But on the up side... 5MP camera, with LED flash. That's an iphone beater. I was kinda sick of smartphones only ever having crappy low spec cameras that give images that could have been taken by one of the first digital cameras...

    Not sure on it. I'll quite gladly give up 3D image galleries and animated wallpaper to save battery life or improve performance on actual functionality. And I prefer physical keyboards too.

    I still have my eyes on the Motorola Milestone.
