    A bit of background, I'm a newbie to Android using an unlocked Milestone from Telus on Rogers network. Phone works perfectly but when I go to use Facebook, the message below says "download Facebook for your Nexus One"
    is this something like a Nexus One software was used as some kind of template on my Milestone? Sort of like a Nexus One theme overtop a Milestone HW? Any idea?
    just curious if anyone has some sound explanation for it.

    LOVIN' Android BTW... I used to have an iPhone before this and I think Android is on pace to become better than the iPhone OS.

    FB is just stupid and thinks that every single phone with Android 2.1 is a Nexus One.

    The END.

    The sad part of the American market. Android phone = Nexus One.

    If you're using a Milestone, they automatically think you're on the Droid. If you were using an HTC Android phone pre-N1, it was either a mystery phone or a mistakened-for-iPhone.

    When I first got my Milestone it said Sholes, then it said Milestone, then it said another model (might have just said Android Phone), now it says Nexus One.

    Where do you check what phone it thinks it is?
