"Google kicked it up a level."5.0 starson by monstertiki
Pros: Newest version of android OS. OS is open source. 1ghz cpu. Removeable battery, 5mp camera, amazing screen, google maps, removable storage. Multi-tasking
Cons: Android is still an adolescent when compared to the iphone. No physical keyboard.
Summary: Contrary to what others believe. The Nexus one is not just an iphone clone. I give credit to Apple for making a smartphone that is functional and with the ability to have major 3rd party app support. Without that support, the iphone would have faded just as other popular phones have in the past. But the value and use of the android platform, and the existing iphone, will only is only as good as the third party app developers supporting it. This being the case, the Nexus One has a very bright future. I think people are missing the big picture here. The Nexus one isn?t the thing everyone wants. Sure it has the most powerful processor ever to be endowed upon a phone. But the major component is what is powering this beast, and that is the android OS. Developers can and will now go blow for blow with the iphone and its never ending wardrobe of apps. Apple officially started the game. But with the google android OS being open source, the game has been kicked up to a whole new level.Make no mistake, android phones in general will be the ying to apples yang. Sure the iphone has been around the block longer and has more apps. But android app developers can use that their advantage and learn from mistakes that app developers have made. Give it 6 moths, and the playing field between the two will be virtually leveled with apps.

Updated on Jan 7, 2010The innovation for nexus one, as with other android phones, is the open source platform that allows developers to begin making apps for it. Make no mistake, google is taking a page from apples play book. Love it or hate it android phones will have a huge following and in a short time will be every bit as competitive with the iphone.
