    haha so at work i have a co worker who is an iphone fanboy. Always talking about how the iphone is the best thing out blah blah blah. I have had my Nexus One for a while now and when i first ordered it before it even got here he was talking about how his iphone 3g is better than it. When i brought it to work the first time he wanted to play around on it for a bit so i let him. I expected him to come back with tons of things he hated and how his iphone was so much better but he came back gave me the phone and did not say a word.

    fast forward 2 months

    Now he was talking to me this week and saying he is going to sell his iphone and pick up a Nexus One, he said he is tired of how closed minded apple is. He wants to use flash on a phone and with the froyo update he is extremely interested.

    I find it funny how iphone fanboys are quick to judge other devices but when push comes to shove and they actually use one they realize that other devices out there are just as good if not better.

    Just thought i would share the story haha.

    Embarrassed to say it... but I was also one of those fanboys before :eek:

    Once I saw how open Android was giving me everything available I had to jailbreak my iPhone for, Google coming out with FREE turn by turn gps, and T-Mobile offering Even More Plus no contract plans --- I was sold!

    I think it's cool that he likes the N1.
    Too bad he used to be a hater though. . .

    I owned a N1 for a 2.5 months. It was not my first Android phone. I rooted it, tried different ROMS. But... I eventually sold it... and went back to... iPhone 3GS. Sorry kid... but iPhone has got the apps, the polish, the superior multimedia experience. I will also get the new iPhone 4th Gen... which will be announced at WWDC this Monday.

    Im glad your enjoying the iphone, i am not saying the phone does not have its place becasue it is a great phone. My thread was more just a funny one because the guy who was bashing the N1 is now selling his iphone to get one. I just thought i was funny. No apple bashing involved, just stated what he did not like about apple.

    I was never a hater... I loved my iPhone but was always open minded, I had tried tons of other devices and never really liked anything as much as the iPhone... staying with that trend of trying to find something better, I came across the Nexus One... I must say, I am quite pleased with it, but until they decide to subsidize it through AT&T, I don't think you will see it taking a large market from the iPhone.

    I don't care how polished it is when it can't handle something as simple as this:

    SHUT UP WOMAN, GET ON MY HORSE!

    Not to be an apple hater or anything.. but, I really don't understand why people keep talking about how "polished" or "seamless" the iphone/apple products are..

    After playing with a demo iphone at work.. and an unnamed 1 ghz android device.. I can honestly say the android device was far more fun..

    Anyone who prefers the iphone has every right to use the iphone over any given android device.

    With that said.. I still think it is sad that one of my co workers most annoying traits is the fact that he is totally in love with apple.. The kind who believes nothing apple does is wrong :/...

    it actually annoys me.. because I can say "here are the cons of my device" however, he refuses to believe apple devices have flaws..

    i swear steve jobs is possessing him sometimes.

    Apple makes great products.

    I just don't like iTunes or AT&T.

    One thing i will always give apple credit for is the boom in touch screen devices. Whuile there were a lot of other touch screen devices out there prior to the jesus phone, manufactures were not approaching it as a viable market, more of a niche market. I also like the competition that apple offers along with windows phone, web os and blackberry, in the end we the consumers win because competition breeds better products that offer more.

    However apple has grown increasingly arrogant and stale, they have yet to release a product that is drastically different from the 1st iphone and there already on the 4th gen. All that they are doing is slowly and i mean slowly releasing feature that other phones have enjoyed for years. I will also agree with the idea that iphone people can be so sheepish, not all but just enough. I also have a co worker that can find no fault in what apple does, and i also have a co worker that sees the fault but continues to buy the product. I love my nexus one and i love android but ill be the first person to point out the flaws. Apple people seem incapable of that or just follow along regardless like lemmings.

    I'll probably point out its flaws online.. ALthough I doubt I will mention any flaws to my apple loving co worker..

    Infact.. I will try to avoid discussing it with him at all cost.. cause he will never admit something is actually a flaw with apple.. but, the most obscure or unimportant irrelevent problem with n1 will cause problems and mean iphone defaults to the better device..

    You can admit a device has flaws without bending to it..

    FWIW I do somewhat like the gizmodo version is the new one.. It is more stylish..

    Then again.. if they use the same old tired iphone shell they have been.. thats something else I can laugh at my co worker for..
