    the iPhone is no-go for a variety of reasons. I want an Android, but I don't like any of the current form-factors and skins. Basically what I want is a Nexus-1 with retina display and Gingerbread. But no such device exists. :(

    LOL he wants a Nexus One with gingerbread.. ofcourse no such device exists. what to do? i suggest you stop daydreaming about phones from the future, otherwise you'll never get a phone. by the time gingerbread comes out.. they you're gonna say you want android 4.0 but no such device exist yet.

    I guess people say they want gingerbread because the UI is the last big thing to take care of and gingerbread will supposedly address that.

    People say a lot of things. The Beatles said they were bigger than Jesus. Hitler said... things I don't want to repeat. Kanye West said he'd quit rapping if 50 Cent outsold him. It's all just talk and speculation right now. If that's what you want, then you'll have to wait. If you don't want to wait, pick the best of what's out there right now. If you kept waiting for the next new thing to come out, you'd still be rocking a Motorola StarTAC.

    I have to believe that something like a Nexus 2 is coming out next year. Why should I compromise on form factor and UI? I don't want HTC's skin over the vanilla base. Give me a choice!

    You can believe that all you want, but I don't think there will be a Nexus 2. But if you're sure it will be out next year, or something like it, then I'm not telling you to compromise, I'm telling you to wait. Your choice is EITHER pick from what's out there now OR wait until something exactly like you want is available. If I was getting a phone right now, I would probably get either the HTC Droid Incredible or the Samsung Captivate. But my contract isn't up until next summer, so my choice is pay to get out of this contract so I can pay for another phone, or wait. Just because you don't like the choice you have doesn't mean you don't have a choice.
