    I have had my Nexus one for a few weeks now and am really happy with it, I have noticed that the trackball light on mine only lioghts up white and no other colour, is this correct (Thought I saw a picture somewhere with a blue light instead of white)?

    I did try using SMS popup to alter the colour for text messages, but it makes no difference.

    It is blocked as default by Google, you have to root the phone to unlock the functionality.

    It may come in future releases though.

    It's lights up blue when you get a call on bluetooth. I don't think Google ever clarified when it was supposed to light up different colors, just that it could.

    not as often I'd imagine.. I think every xbox 360 owner has seen the red lights of death at least thrice.
