    I'm only about 15 minutes in on toying with it so I'll post with additional information.

    Wow....as as I stated it's BLAZING fast. Honestly it puts my 3G iPhone and UK Hero to SHAME!!!!

    Popped in my ATT sim, and I seem to be running completely fine. No tweaking like I had to do with my Hero to allow it to run smoothly.

    As for the animated backgrounds there are 10 of them. I ended up choses Grass which is pretty sweet. The color of the sky changes due to the time of day, which is cool, and the blads of grass blow left and right. You can also chose, Galaxy, Magic SMoke, Many, Nexus, Polar Clock, Spectrum, VU meter, Water, and Waveform.

    Odd thing is, I can't seem to find where the ringtones are which is odd.

    As for the headphone questions going around...they are identical to the Hero headphones, except in black with the android logo on the side of it.

    Still toying around with it, but I'm definitely open to questions.

    Hopefully the pics were attached to this post...if not I'll try again.

    Still playing with it now so holding off on more photos....but I have no clue about release dates at all man.

    One crappy thing though is they don't have some of the really nice widgets that the HTC Hero has. One example is the nice clocks. I loved the one that had the weather on the bottom of it. Now they only have one cheesy round one.

    Well that's to be given considering this thing isn't running Sense UI and those HTC widgets are part of that

    As for the typing it's way way better. Originally I had a lot of issues with the Hero, because you have to be so precise on the keys. I'd say that the N1 is on even playing ground with the iPhone. No problems at all typing the keys that I want to type.....and I have to keep saying it...this thing is a BEAST!

    I installed and uninstalled a few apps and I was surprised how quickly it did both, but more so the uninstall. On my Hero and a friends Droid, the uninstall takes a small bit of time...but on this N1 it did is so quick I didn't even realize it was done...no bull shit.

    Using AT&T on it can you confirm that there is no 3G from att on it?

    lol same here.

    To the thread starter:

    1.What's the build number, it should be something like Exx with 2 digits?

    2. Have you had problems with the apps/games you installed, in terms of a different screen resolution compared to other android phones?

    3. Are on at&t network, confirm no 3G?

    4. Prediction on battery life?

    5. Do the phone menus offer any support links and what happens if you click them?

    6. If you have another android phone, scan the bar coder on the back of your phone, what's the result?
    Estimate How much could you get for it on ebay lol

    How fast is Edge on it?

    I'm stuck with ATT for a while but might still get this phone if its cheap enough (sub $200). That way I'll still be able to get my Android fix.

    Guys...I can't answer TOO many personal questions about some of the numbers on the phone and the bar scan etc because I'd put someone at risk.

    So I'll answer the basic questions...

    As for edge....seems to be working pretty fast. In all the phone processing speed is just amazingly fast.

    Nothing personal there. Too many people claiming to have it , yet simple questions going unanswered.

    Mod has already asked for further proof.

    Photos are pretty good....I'd say a decent amount better then the Hero. I still don't think they are as sharp as the iphone though. Video is pretty decent. I panned the camera around pretty quickly and talked in to it and filmed the t.v.....no lags or skips in playback. FPS must be pretty high. Again..I don't truly think it's better then the iphone.

    So far...other then camera mode and music UI.....hands down this can compete 100% with the iphone.

    I asked for a two digit build number, I did not ask for your social security number.

    If scanning the bar code leads to a site, you wouldn't have to say which site if you think it might ID you, just say "it leads to a web site" You do know there are many other phones out there, some providing reviews and revealing these numbers with no problems.

    Again:

    Have you had problems with the apps/games you installed, in terms of a different screen resolution compared to other android phones?

    Are you on at&t network, confirm no 3G?

    Prediction on battery life?

    Screen impressions?

    Speaker and vibration ok?

    booting time?

    do you have root access?

    voice to text performance?

    does it blend? :)
