    Seems like they just released a Netflix App for certain android phones:

    1. HTC Incredible with Android 2.2
    2. HTC Nexus One with Android 2.2, 2.3
    3. HTC Evo 4G with Android 2.2
    4. HTC G2 with Android 2.2
    5. Samsung Nexus S with Android 2.3.

    I'm getting my Nexus S 4G tomorrow and I'm excited to try out the app!

    Nice gift to new Nexus S 4G owners. This was a big issue for me, and a reason why I considered leaving Android for WP7 (or possibly iOS).

    This is what Google needs to do all day everyday to ensure Apple's advantages are shrank down to nothing. Also, it sets Google phones, and the pure Google experience apart, which should boost sales for the Nexus line, ensuring future iterations.

    Now that I've gone pure Google, that is where I want to stay.

    Streaming is great, but it doesn't allow for management of your non-instant queue. :mad:

    Who cares if you can't manage you DVD queue with it? Can't we just be happy that we can finally use it at all just for a little while?

    They probably have to keep it simple. I don't mind. If i want to change my queue I'll just open a browser and do it that way.

    Idk if I would of left over one app or silly little features that don't really impact the overall performance of a phone like led lights and sd card and bootloaders. I never understood that. Yea, root etc is fine but why did you want the phone in the first place? Or how much space do you expect to use on a phone that you need more space? Apps take up a very small amount. Watching and streaming movies on a phone is cool and and all but missing that one feature is not enough to jump to another carrier because they have it. I mean people like what they like but i think that is a silly reason.

    The app lags my Nexus S to a grinding standstill. If I go out of the app, everything is snappy as ever. Dev fail
