    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.
