Despite the better resolution screen, turn-by-turn navigation and voice typing, the item that will keep me from buying an N1 is the lack of a multi-touch screen. The iPhone pinch & flick action is too slick to give up. And the ability to correct typos with the magically appearing magnifying glass is not there in Android. How does one correct mistakes without fiddling with a balky trackball? Track balls are notoriously faulty. Trackballs suck. Just ask any crackberry veteran. And where is the Redlaser app to compare prices by scanning barcodes with the phone's camera? And Instapaper app to download newspaper articles to read offline while in flight? And iNavx with every nautical chart in the US on the phone with waypoint GPS navigation even while offshore out of cell range? Looks like the Android OS has some serious catching up to do. Yes, of course I am tied to a contract. When it ends I will see where the mobile landscape is greener and decide whether Android has turned into a version of a Microsoft type mess or has caught up to Apple. May the consumer be the better for this upcoming competition. It's gonna be fun to witness the battle.
