    I don't see why anyone would switch from the Droid to the N1 when the N1 doesn't provide any appreciable hardware benefits besides the larger RAM, there is no hardware keyboard, and you don't get to try it out first before you're locked into it, IN ADDITION to being on an inferior network.

    Well it does have a faster processor and GPU also, but that isn't enough to make me switch anyway. The EVO I will switch for even without a physical kb. The biggest draw for a lot of users is the Nexus 1 is made by HTC who is arguably the best smartphone company around and has a great history of Android support since the start. Plus being backed by Google directly is a draw for some. All the guys I know who got one did it because Cyanogen and basically all the other developers from the G1 switched to the N1 so it has a awesome community.

    Yeah, I'm good with Pete making ROMs for us. :)

    But the EVO really is tempting me. 4.3" screen and 4G was what I've been waiting for all this time. Still, I'm on a two-year contract and I can't switch out anyway; hopefully Verizon will have a decent 4G network built up by November 6, 2011 and I can get a nice 4G Android phone on a good network.

    I agree with all of you're points, but part of me still loves the look of it and would still love to get it (I love purchasing new phones like every 9 months lol). And by august ishh they'll have it fixed. So I kind of want to get it right now... Idk, we'll see if there's nothing that much better coming out. If there isn't I think I might pick myself one up.

    The only thing I could see myself wanting about it is the trackball. Trackballs are nice to begin with, but this one functions as the notification LED because it's illuminated! :)

    Fix what? The resolution? That won't happen lol but it doesn't matter anyway since they use the technology so it still looks like 800x480. I got my Droid on launch day so my ETF is the old $175 not the $350 they changed it to like a week later. I'll sell the Droid for hopefully $300-$350 with the 2 docks and extra phantom skinz, spend $135 on the ETF (goes down $5 a month) and then have about $200 for the EVO on Sprint which I think is what it will cost with a new contract.

    Do you guys think it would be smart to get the Nexus One in a few months? Or do you think google will be releasing a Nexus Two by like november - december ish? Part of me thinks they will, but part of me thinks they are going to make this they're phone for a while till everyone has 4G up. Idkkk?? :cool:

    As a Droid owner, I wouldn't switch to anything short of a phone with HTC Evo specs. I would rather have a droid than an N1 because of all the custom roms.

    Too many of my friends left Sprint for Verizon, complaining about network coverage...will Sprint really have decent nationwide network coverage w/their new 4G network?

    You really think you can get $300-$350 for your Droid, even with all those accessories when you can get one for free from Verizon? I suppose people would be willing to pay more for your phone without a contract as opposed to getting one free from Verizon or Wirefly (but being locked into a 2 year contract). Guess I just answered my own question, but I still think 300-350 is overly-optimistic.
