The Nexus One is a fantastic mobile handset, I've been on Google's Android since last year on the HTC Magic (also on Vodafone UK). I cannot believe how much faster the new HTC Nexus One is, not only is the new 2.1 operating system better than 1.6, but the browsing experience on 3G is really fast.
The Android ecosystem is not that of the iPhone yet, but on a handset to handset functionality level I would say they are equal.
- now handles multiple gmail a/c's, perfect for work and personal mail
- great integration with calendar, now allows 'inviting people' (1.6 didn't)
- great 5mp camera... wait for it... yes, with a FLASH!! (finally)
- multitasking - it runs apps in the background as earlier versions
- battery is definitely acceptable, just watch your GPS usage as with all handsets.
- thankfully none yet, I've had it a week and love it
- only that there are not as many apps as the iPhone but its getting there
Overall well worth a buy - Enjoy :-)
