I am well overdue for a new phone. I was wanting the Milestone (Droid) because of it's keyboard but this one has also peaked my interest. I just don't like thought of shelling out at the full price and prefer it to be subsidised over time by my contract :confused:
A - buy external memory media ie sd card ( of some shape or form )
B - have to keep swapping sd cards without losing them etc
agree with the rest of it though - loving the shape / design of it but would be good to have a play with one.
If they include a solid state drive that holds 64gb in a slightly chunkier handset that had firewire or usb 3 or something like that - now that would be good.
(At least you can change the battery) ;)
USB 3 or firewire ( the newer version as I am sure they will release one to compete with USB 3 ) because it would make transferring that amount of data a lot faster and easier then sitting there for an hour waiting for your contacts, calendars, music, video, etc etc synching and transferring etc and if it had at least 64gb ssd you could use it as a boot drive and have diag software on there to help diag computers or repair them and then you wouldnt need to carry different discs around etc at least if it was firewire ( well maybe for the mac side not sure if its the same on windows with firewire )
You could be like me my Natwest Maestro card is foldable (as some saw in London when I remembered just before I used a cash point!) so had to have a new one and its come as Visa Debit, and yes a new number to remember, but then again I don't really use my debit card as I use my credit card as its more secure
i just ordered mine :D:D:D:D:D:D
Spent the weekend playing with it and using it from the search bar on th desktop got great results, practically everything found I searched for, directions, numbers in address book, places on the map.
Using the voice dialler for some reason didn't have the same results, don't quite know why. Most of my contacts it picked up, trying to get it to dial a number (something as simple as 453 for my balance for example) it didn't get, even though when I said call 453 on the search one on the desktop it went and searched google for call 453 without a problem.
Overall pretty impressed, just a little disappointed about the voice dialler, but knowing my address book works from the desktop I'll just use that instead. :)
Ordered mine last night, Its just a waiting game now - wonder how soon it'll arrive?
I'm just waiting for my new bank card. Then I'll simultaneously get a contract SIM and the Nexus ;)

Google forums dont seem to be able to shed any light on when orders are being shipped/recieved. Seems a bit of a lottery. Fingers crossed it's Friday. They've taken payment so I hope its in the process of being shipped!
