    They are not the same, but they do share a lot of the same hardware.

    I know that but I have generally trusted this website in the past.

    The website isn't correct. They do share the same screen and processor, but that's where the similarities end.

    The Desire has (and Nexus One Doesn't):
    - Slightly more RAM
    - HTC Sense UI
    - Optical mouse
    - Hardware buttons
    - Bluetooth 2.1 stack

    the Nexus One has (and the Desire doesn't):
    - Dual mics for noise cancelling
    - Stock Android 2.1 OS
    - Trackball
    - Soft-touch buttons

    They also are styled differantly.

    I seriously wish Tmo had a demo N1 for customers to play with. That would make it easier to decide. At least with the Droid, the key deciding factor is the keyboard. However, my cliq has the better keyboard of the two, and I hate the lack of dedicated number keys. Therefore, I'll gladly pass on the physical keyboard option.

    So, its a matter of preference. I never used Sense, but I hear they added social syncing (I got used to blur). So, dual mic or track pad + extra ram? Also, if Desire gets Divx support, what about N1?

    I doubt the N1 is going to get it, getting the DivX support probably meant that HTC had to pay to license it from DivX or something on a per-phone-sold basis. Not something that Google would do I'm afraid.

    What does getting DivX for the phone mean?

    How does it benefit the user?

    If you want to watch a video encoded with DivX now, you'd have to re-encode it on your computer, to a codec the phone could play. If it gets DivX support, you could just transfer the file to the phone and it'd work just like that :)

    Since my $2,000 custom PC is gonna cost another several hundred to fix, I'd like a phone that has almost as much internet functionality. I'd rather not buy a laptop. Flash 10? Divx? Sounds like my kinda phone!
