    It seems the Nexus One is everything I wanted my Eris to be. I had the eris for 1 month and already feel outdated.

    Nexus one has:
    1. bigger screen 3.7" same size as moto doid.
    2. keyboardless
    3. snapdragon processor. probably less laggy than eris.

    I didn't go with the moto droid because of the bigger size. The verizon network probably won't be getting any new droid phones until Summer 2010.

    The Nexus 1 will be on T-mobile when it first comes out :(
    If it come to Verizon that will be the phone to get :D

    Don't be jealous, it's on T-Mobile.

    T-Mobile is a big turn off and practically makes the device useless to me. T-Mobiles 3G coverage is extremely limited. In my experience EDGE is slower then 1xRTT so I'll stick with Sprint and 1xRTT. Chances of Sprint bringing 3G to my area is substantially higher then T-Mobile.

    I like the Eris, and and happy I purchased it. In the same breath, I knew it wouldnt be long before it was outdated. the Nexus 1 will be outdated after a few months on the market too. Thats the way technology works, your phone is typically outdated the second you buy it, no matter what phone it is.

    its like a car, soon as it leaves the lot it loses value.
    but if you bought a 2005 ferrari would you be mad in 2009?
    let me answer that...NO!

    no jealousy here, nexus owners will be jealous of me simply because of my sheer awesomeness and not the phone i carry.

    they will also be jealous when i pull up anything on the web and they have no coverage.

    The Nexus One will only be awesome until Nexus Two comes out 6 months later LOL. then you will be feeling the same way.

    It's a revolving door with technology. If you want to keep up with it you will need lots of $$ to keep up and deal wit upgrading your phone every couple of months.

    Eris may not have the most up to date hardware and software but it does everything I need (or want) it to and then some. Sure I'd love to have the biggest and greatest, but I have what I have and no matter what is dangled out there in front of me is going to make me even think about switching networks or shelling out hundreds of more dollars.

    It's a fact that no matter what you get, something better is going to come out to make you want it. No one has any patience anymore. I read everyday on here about people going through a handful of phones a year. It's dumb. If you give yourself the option of upgrading whenever you want, you'll never be satisfied with what you have.

    I can't even imagine wanting to upgrade to something after my Eris contract is up. I can't even imagine what kind of phones will be out in 2 years. Am I excited? Yes. Do I wish my phone was a superphone? Yes. But am I somehow bummed that my amazing phone isn't as amazing as another amazing phone? Not at all.

    I am jealous as well. I bet it can run Sense without suffering from a lot of lag.....

    I always said that the phone I REALLY wanted when I got the Eris was an Eris / Droid love child: Droid screen with Eris body, no keyboard, running 2.0 and with a snappier processor.

    Looks like it just came out.

    But TMO is a no-go. If I wanted a shitty network, I would have gotten an iPhone.

    The only reason I would have been jealous is the fact that it supposed to be "Google Branded", which I thought would have been more "open". It is merely another HTC device, so the functionality that exists on the Nexus One is not that much more than the Eris, so I am satisfied with my purchase.

    As for the Eris being outdated already... Same goes for ANY electronic device. Thats why it took me so long to buy an HDTV. It took me over a year of shopping and I still felt like I got screwed. There is no way out of feeling weary of your tech purchase a month afterward. :)

    Who can say that the Eris won't run much better with an Android update to 2.0/2.1? I think too many folks forget what an O/S update can do for a system.

    Jealous of someone else's phone? No, I have much higher self esteem than that.

    I totally agree. I love my updates! Just from the buzz about 2.1, I think that the performance increase will make it equal to the Nexus, or damn near close.

    I am not jealous, but I am feeling a little neglected. The Eris is a great phone. I just hope it receives its upgraded to 2.x in January. When that finally hits and we have GoogleNav and the Eris gets rooted, IMO it will be the best phone on VZW.

    You and I think alike my friend. Only thing I worry about with this new phone is the battery life. But it doesnt really matter if it is not on VZW as I am not jumping ship. I am not that big of a tech 'ho.

    Jealous???? I hate to bust your bubble but the second you walked out of the store with your eris it was outdated. Welcome to the wonderful world of technology. Oh and the Nexus does nothing for me so yeah jealous NOOO.

    I will say this;

    I was out last night with all my Apple co-workers. I'm one of the only ones in that group that was out that didn't have an iPhone. We went to an underground place to eat. Guess who was the only person to have reception? Let's just say Verizon android boy had to have all calls routed to his phone :cool:.

    Huge win. VZ > AT/T > T-Mobile. Nuff said.

    If the Nexus One had CDMA abilities would I get it, probably. Would I rather wait for all the carries to switch to 4g networks and disband the whole CDMA vs GSM battle? Hellz yea. I got the Eris to be my first smart phone, and to hold me over until I get an iPhone for VZ or something equally as cool.

    I agree.

    Jealous was not the word that I would probably use. Mad that the phone I really want came out so soon after my phone is out would better describe it.

    Having said that, now that my phone is working as it should! I am MUCH happier with my Eris. The only reason I would want the N1 would be the larger screen.

    Of course Sense and Android will run more smoothly on a 1GZ processor. The other big thing I like from the spec is that the Nexus One has a wifi chip that supports the N wireless standard as that is a tremendous increase in speed over the G wireless standard.

    Beyond the two items above, the other specs are kind of meh... The bigger screen is nice, but it adds heft. I don't play games or watch movies on the phone so the amazing AMOLED screen is not something I would choose to pay for (it may be a big plus for someone using their phone heavily as a multimedia device)

    I think that the Eris processor, though older, is capable of running Sense and Android fairly effectively. My guess is that all lag is eliminated by the Snapdragon processor so it's simply a matter of what your tolerance level is. The biggest key for the Eris is that it runs well after the Android 2.0/2.1 update. A lot of posts dealing with the many issues that the Eris has all hang their hats on the fact that after the update all problems will be resolved. While that's an unrealistic expectation, I am expecting that the Eris will be more stable and more responsive running the latest version of Android. If it's not, I'll have to move on to an Android device without Sense.

    I'm not sure about anyone else, but the biggest thing I want out of the Eris is simply for the current feature set to work well. That means no lockups requiring a battery pull, no issues running YouTube and reasonable performance (i.e. some lag is ok)

    I've had the Moto Droid and the 2.0 functionality does a lot of what Sense does (just not as elegantly). At Android 1.5, Sense is a huge benefit but that's not the case with 2.0. Given that most of the problems people are having with the Eris occurred after the last Sense update, I think that HTC needs to get this 2.0 update right or people will start to abandon Sense as the cons of a device with Sense will outweigh the Pros.

    The bottom line answer to the OP is that I am not jealous of the Nexus One as long as the 2.0 update for the Eris results in a phone that is stable and can run Android & Sense efficiently.

    I have been with Tmobile since before the Voicestream days, and I have never had an issue. Problem with phones are typically associated with operator error or faulty manufacturing. The network has a lot to do with it, but if everyone would do the research beforehand about what is good coverage in their area, there would not be any complaints of jealousy.

    Yeahh, I had T-Mobile back when it was OmniPoint (I think that was it) and then Voicestream, and then T-Mobile lol... It was a good phone for me at the time, and affordable while I was in high-school... But the service sucks around me. If you're in an area where T-Mobile has good service then that's a great way to go.. For ME, Verizon is the way to go, with the best cell service in this whole NJ/NYC area. Yes, better than AT&T.
