    Nexus One Embuggerence!

    To connect via USB in Windows and upload\download content to the device you must first mount it (viva Linux!) and then unmount it once done. One day they will automate this I hope!

    Don't get me wrong, I love the phone, however it does not come with any instructions and when you plug it in to your Windows PC it does the usual 'dum dum' noise and then nothing shows. 15 Mins Googling later it tells you what to do.

    I think most phones are like that at the minute. Windows 7 was a bit of a b*g**** with this Android handset but managed to get the bits needed.
    Google is marvellous

    Nah, I want a phone where I don't have to carry the charger around in my pocket 'just in case!'.

    I love my G1 and think Android is ace. If you want a cool app get Layar.

    got all 4 main handset types in our office.

    htc touch dimond
    htc google type unit
    iphone
    blackberry

    the one i use the most is my blackberry, battery life is about 3 days even with me emailing/ wifi on/ internet/ blackberry messager/msn messsager and other such like plus using it as a phone for up to 30+ minutes some days

    my touch i had to get a 1800ma battery before it would last more than 2days

    the iphone people are charging up mid day some times cause the batteries are low

    the google type htc is nice and has a good battery but is not my personnal cup of tea ( too much control from google)

    intresting what one person said about having to use google to findout how to use his google phone...

    we do have nokia handsets but they took me the best part of 4 days and several resets to get the exchange to work.

    my touch and blackberry sync with exchange very easily so i have no fear if i lose the handsets and then need to get my "life" back again.

    the iphone we only have push email via the web interface on outlook.

    drop testing the blackberry comes out on top , followed by the touch, then nokia then iphone.

    You could of all saved yourself the hassel and gone for the better phone (IMHO) HTC Touch HD2, android is just not ready or supported enough to be used as well as a WinMo phone when you have people like the XDA developers. and if you really wanted android (not sure why) then you can always run it ontop of WinMo.

    If anyone can give a sensible reason why the Nexus (Hardware or software) is better than the HD2 then I would like to hear it as I havn't found any! (Please if Im wrong then tell me).

    Oh yeah....and as for multitasking (not even gonna bring up the whole classic copy&paste iphone issue)....WinMo has been able to do this since at least 2002

    I get the impression some reviews 'nit-pick' to be awkward (proberbly iPhone owners who are trapped in expensive contracts!),but IMHO the point of Android as that now it has been open sourced the OS will come on in huge leaps and bounds.

    For me; Google integration, open source and available apps are the main winners.
