    I'm delaying my android phone purchase since the release of the G1 and I can't take it anymore. (though we still have only 1 android phone in Belgium, the Hero and it's way too expensive)

    I'm thinking about importing a Milestone or a Nexus one...which phone do you prefer and why? :thinking:

    Thanks for the info and have a nice holiday! :)

    The Nexus One hasn't even been released yet so you can't really compare it to the Droi yet.

    Good point, but most of the specs are already available, and so are a lot of videos etc..but indeed asking something like "buy droid or wait for nexus" would be more appropriate.

    Going by this review by Gizmodo, N1 is easily better than the Droid.

    I'd take the Nexus One in a heartbeat. I strongly dislike the Droid's physical keyboard and form factor but it's the fastest Android phone out right this moment in the US so I'm with it for now.

    I would love to have this phone, but its on t-mobile. And because its t-mobile, I won't get any service were I am going to school. I am waiting for a great Android device with a 1ghz processor, to arrive at Verizon. For now I am sticking with my Storm 1, because I am not fond of slide out keyboards, like the Droid has.

    Uhoh... t-mobile only? :thinking:

    Because I need an unlocked version asap (and since I'm not that good at pleasuring men with my mouth I guess I'd better not count on getting an invite) and I live in Belgium, and I'm delaying my Droid import because of the N1 appearance...

    This is an interesting conundrum, but one I wont loose much sleep over. I have a Droid, and love it to death. I am also past my 30 days, and will not leave VZW. That said, I first got an Eris, and enjoyed the experience with no keyboard and a more "iphone" feel. That said, the Droid should suit me for a year at least (when I can get another VZW upgrade). It will be interesting to see how much faster it really is. Remember, it's running 2.1 vs. Droid @ 2.01 which could feature optimizations (though I'm certain the Snapdragon is still faster)...

    When it comes to gadgets I'm like a little boy getting a present from santa. :D

    I'm still an HTC TYTN2 (aka Kaiser) user and I'm quite attached to my keyboard, so when the Droid came out (and it's still unreleased in Belgium and I guess it will stay like this for quite some time, if it even will get released over here that is) I was very happy to see a kick ass device with physical keyboard. And now when I was really considering an import Google comes along with the N1 making me unsure about everything...

    But if so many people can do without hardware keyboard + the software kb on the N1 works nicely as it seems...maybe I can do so too.


    Cool, there will also be an unlocked version available besides the T-Mobile version: http://www.reuters.com/article/idUSTRE5BD49220091214?type=technologyNews

    I'm not really interested in an iPhone 'feel.' I really want something like the G1 with better specs.

    I guess it's like watches. Some people want a Movado watch and I would rather have a digital watch with a stopwatch and several alarms

    Yeah, but the "problem" is that unlike watches the mobile technologies evolve very fast and we can almost never have want we want... and we Belgian people use azerty keyboard so by the time we can buy an azerty device in France (online) the american people already have access to the next generation... so I'm already very happy if I would be able to get the N1 soon, software keyboards are easy so switch.

    yes I realize it is much more economical to have one phone for the entire world that can have any language you want
    But the nice thing about android is that phonemakers can cater to specialized markets...such as those who want 32 gig internal memory with an SD slot to spare...come on guys.

    Hehe, yeah I agree. :) I've been following android (and phandroid) since the beginning and I really need to drop my damn M$ WM device asap for an ♥Android♥. As I'm a Java developer I should be able to write my own apps and I'm looking forward to do so.

    This is a stupid poll. I still don't understand why Google would make a phone to compete with thier other phones or thier partners for that matter. Verizon busted there ass to promote the Android name which worked because alot of my freinds that didn't even know what it was now know thanks to the Driod and now Google just throws all that effort in the trash?

    Don't listen to Gizmodo they are always horribly biased.

    You can tell just by that article, he makes some of that stuff up.

    I need a physical keyboard, so I have to go with Droid... That and the fact that I'm on Verizon which utilizes CDMA technology which the Nexus One may not support anytime soon.

    Whoaw, impressive change in the poll result. Last time I checked N1 was kicking Droid ass but now the tables have turned.

    For me, it's the N1, no question, but I live in Belgium. I think you have to take the survey results with a grain of salt for your purposes since some people may be more biased toward a carrier rather than the phone. Perhaps the question should include a line like, "If you had to choose between the two and carrier were not an issue..."

    just look at the hardware specs... N1 will have a 1 Ghz processor while the Droid still has a slow 528 Mhz CPU.
