    To the OP.....I don't know if you were aware that Sprint uses Verizon's towers for free. So theoretically you should have the same service at a much cheaper price with the phone you want.

    On a related note, I too thought that the EVO was the must have phone for me, and then I checked out the HTC HD2 (very similar form factor) at a local store to see if I would like the 4.3" screen. Come to find out, it is cool, but I think it's too big for me compared to the sleek 3.7" screen and form factor of the Nexus. You might check the HD2 and see what you think......

    This is only true of certain areas where Verizon gives them the best deal (Mainly in the northeast), and it only uses Verizon's towers if there is no Sprint service in the area at all, so it would be roaming.

    I think the Surprise will be that the N1 VZW and the N1 Vodaphone will BE the same phone. In other words, a six band phone with CDMA and GSM. Why? Because the N1 hardware already accomodates a Sim slot and the Ozone, Imagio, HD2 as well as non HTC Vzw smartphones also have GSM. That Qualcomm chipset won't take more space. It would make perfect sense and really slaughter the other US carriers.

    I have a VZW Samsung Saga and use it in Europe too with the included Vodaphone Sim. It's sim unlocked actually so I could run it on ATT or Tmob too; but why LOL.

    I don't care about LTE. What's a phone gonna do with 12mbps? Even my home PC streams HD video over <3mbps dsl. Actually I think the draw of LTE 4G is the unified standard. Sprint going to WIMAX 4G is another blunder in the wrong direction.

    I'm going to say the "surprise" will be mobile hotspot capability...for an extra fee of course. (similar to what Verizon did for the Palm Pre Plus)

    so what if i am not getting Verizon 3g coverage then it nothing more then allowing me to call someone when I'm roaming. I am not defending Verizon or anything but i am pretty sure when your roaming you don't have very good 3g speeds and you probably only running edge which is slow as hell.

    Yes that is correct. And yes, it would be very slow 3g Kregoth.

    Yeah I don't think so either. AMOLED is a lot pricier.

    Right. And this is the reason I'm still not believing these rumors.

    Well they aren't sold at T-Mobile and AT&T stores so... the rumors that it will not be sold at Verizon stores may hold water.

    As for in-store support--if the Nexus One isn't sold in stores--there isn't much the reps can do for you. They can give you Google's website address, their support number, but then their hands are tied. Of course we won't know for sure until the CDMA version is released.

    Yeah I think there is no way that Verizon would want to support this phone

    here is something interesting, i might be looking too much into this but hear me out..

    FROYO

    the HTC evo is supposed to get updated to Froyo, but because the Nexus is only running just android, no sense UI to get update blah blah blah

    so wouldn't that mean an update on the Nexus would be easier?

    I don't know where you guys are but I have been using Sprint for quite a while from both NY & FL and the service and speed has been great. Just try to come close to the price / performance and it is not even close. I have also been in tech for quite a while, high end IBM systems not just PC's.
    I have been told after a Web inquiry on the Nexus site that the Sprint version is mechanically identical to the Verizon one, the difference is that they both have the CDMA components.
    Just my take.

    Every day I google "Nexus One Verizon" to see when will Nexus one come to Verizon.

    The latest results are saying that it will definitely be released this month (April), and that the price is $499.

    This is $30 dollars less than T-Mobile/AT&T version.

    Anyone knew about this?

    Everything is just rumors at this point. We don't know anything for certain until it is released.

    I wish they'd drop it a $100 more since it's been out for 3 months. That'd be nice lol.. :cool:

    I'm beginning to think the "surprise" is the fact these devices will be announced on April 30th. :)

    Damn, I was going to say the same thing. There have been no other Nexus Ones released on April 30th.
