"The Nexus One belongs in the emerging class of devices which we call ‘superphones,’ with the 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon™ chipset making it as powerful as your laptop computer of three to four years ago.

  1. I got this phone two weeks ago and I'd say - it rocks! It took me about three days to get used to the interface and quirks of the N1 without reading the downloadable pdf manual.

    Pluses: very bright AMOLED screen; lots of free useful apps (be sure to download the newly- released Gesture Search by Google) in the Android Market; solid look and feel (a friend compared it to his iPhone and he started lusting at my N1 after handling it); worked well with all my bluetooth headsets (SE, Nokia, Motorola, Jabra and TDK); too many to mention

    Minuses: The bottom part of the capacitive touch screen is non-responsive most of the time; virtually useless trackball; very spartan music player

    In all great phone.

  2. Where do you buy this phone in the Philippines?

  3. wow! looks interesting. I'd like to buy something like this. the google brand name is a statement.
