    I currently own Droid Incredible as my main phone.

    I've been thinking about getting some kind of Quad-Band GSM Android phone (new or slightly used, prefer new) to use for my infrequent travel to Europe.

    I'd like this phone to have OS 2.2 or higher.

    There is now a deal at DailySteals

    The digitizer is much better on the Incredible and it has an optical trackball, other then that I was always to believe theyvare the same phone. Processor might be slightly newer but they are both 1ghz.

    I have and love my Nexus One. It's even running the latest 2.3.4 OS. The glowing trackball is a great notification, although I think it sucks for navigation.

    However, it is an older phone (in phone terms) and has its faults (some have digitizer issues etc).

    That's a good price, and if it does what you need then I think it's still a good phone, and will continue to be for a while. The lack of front facing camera and limited internal memory is the thing that is finally going to make me move to something else (although I'll certainly keep it). What that something else is I'm not sure yet. Pure Google and vanilla Android are a huge plus in my book and Nexus One's go for high prices on E-Bay.

    Can you elaborate on digitizer issues? How is DInc better in that regard?

    I am a bit unclear on what this would affect. The only purpose I use 2 fingers for is pinch-and-zoom. Does this work as expected?

    Yes, in everyday use this isn't a problem. It's just a limitation of the system that is used. Pinch-Zoom works fine.

    Others may have more issues than me. Occasionally if you're manipulating a picture you may encounter the issue, but I haven't had it happen enough to bother me.

    Can anyone clarify on 3G issues this phone has/had? A lot of posts online but information is inconclusive. And it seems there is a different issue for WiFi connectivity.

    Personally I have no 3G or wifi issues with my Nexus One.

    3G issues on the Nexus One were always an issue with T-Mobile, not the Nexus One.

    no doubt the N1 is better even though it is somewhat inferior in some specs.
    but the support (still strong) is way better than the dinc.
    it is still the only dev's phone (dont even mention the ns cause it's not a dev phone).
    pure android - you just can't beat that.
