    So I've ordered my Nexus One, to be shipped to the UK with Charger adapter ( I hope they don't just mean travel plug!!!)

    I wondered how many other people have decided to make the change and for what reasons why/why not?

    My reasons for are:

    Native Android - hopefully smoother running and quicker updates. Especially as I run an Orange branded handset.

    Larger Screen - I struggle with the Hero keyboard, and don't want a HW one.

    Technology - I believe that this handset will last me a year or more.

    Plus a friend offered me

    I may actually do this at some point through my contract.

    Same situation here.
    When I heard the rumor that Nexus One was coming out early January, I immediately sold my Hero on eBay.
    I've now ordered Nexus One and waiting for it to come tomorrow!!!

    My issue with ordering from the US is that if a fault develops under warranty, would you have to send it back to the US...?

    My reason "why not" is simple:
    The Hero suits me. It does all I need it to in a perfect form factor. I don't consider the N1 enough of an advance over the Hero to make the move worthwhile for my uses.
     
  9. I think I'm gonna do the same especially after spending 3 hrs building an igloo then finding ur phone can't take a picture coz no flash, so my m8 en his HD2 saved the day. But then found he couldnt send it to me via Bluetooth the normal easy way....

    You mean you didn't know there is no flash on Hero before buying it? Don't you do at least some research before buying expensive electronics?

    I was wandering about the warranty as well. Don't really want to be sending my phone back across the pond.

    I notice that the N1 is showing up in the devicewire shop

    If you look on the nexus forum they say you'll be able to send them to HTC in the uk for warranty stuff.

    I ordered one yesterday morning and haven't got my shipping confirmation yet, hurry up.

    There's a disclaimer in the bumf stating that the buyer should be aware that the handset is supplied by HTC - i.e. not Google's problem if it goes wrong. I'm happy with this as I would prefer to deal with HTC in the UK than Orange or such like.

    All in it came to $578 (shipping $30 + adapter a not so cheap $20).

    seing as it costs that much then i might as well wait until i can get it in the uk and have a hands on play first. From what ive been reading though the OS is still not very smooth despite the 1GHz processor, this is a big deciding factor for me because if scrolling is still as choppy as it is on Hero then I won't be bothering with it.

    Yeah fair...if I had that money I'd definitely go for the Nexus over the Milestone
