    Hello guys I'm fixing to buy a nexus one but have a big question. If I'm browsing the web and a text message comes in I know I pull the bar down and answer the text but how do I go back to the browser. Is it like the iPhone where u have to hit the home button? And star again? Can someone explain the process In detail for me? Thank u so much

    Exactly and I love this behavior. I came from blackberry to Android and this is one fantastic function.

    On my HTC Hero (I get my Nexus One tomorrow) I hold down the Home button and a list of running or recently used apps appears and I can just switch, sort of like alt-tab on windows. Normally though you can just use the back button as said above, but there's also this way to flip between apps. I'd have thought it's the same on the N1, I'll know tomorrow night I hope!

    Yes, it works that way on the N1. Don't waste your time hitting back repeatedly, folks; just hold down home.

    It is. You have the last 6 opened apps/functions.
