    First I heard from numerous sources that the Nexus One is comming to Sprint in the near future. Is this true because if it is I will return my Samsung Moment (still have 30 days). Second, if the Nexus One isn't comming to Sprint any time soon, is there a Nexus One ROM for rooted devices? If so can someone please post a link along with their post? Thanks:D

    VERY nice specs on that phone but no physical keyboard kills it for me :(

    **EDIT Maybe, it has a 3.7" screen so that extra real estate might make for a nice on-screen keyboard.

    What were you expecting in a MOMENT forum?

    The only thing in your post even related to the Moment is the fact that you own one and are within 30 days. Why don't you try going to a forum with people that actually have the phone and can answer this particular set of questions?

    only thing i've read so far for sure is that it's coming to t-mobile. other than that, not too many people know... plus, i would think there would be some difficulty with sprint's cdma...

    It's confirmed to be coming to Verizon in the spring, so when that happens it'll work on Sprint.

    Verizon announced in 2007 that they were changing to GSM. their parent company is Vodafone which is GSM.. they keep buying cell companies that are GSM.. now, does that tell you Verizon might be getting the Nexus One in the Spring of 2010 (as announced) because they might be using GSM by then? that's what it tells me...

    no way in hell verizon is going gsm in 10. that's just isn't possible. the nexus one will be both gsm and cdma compatible. if verizon and tmobile is getting it i don't see why sprint can't get it too. tho i think sprint is getting something better or equal too this. bravo anyone?

    You can't used unlocked phones with sprint. So unless sprint offers it themselves or they decide to change their policies I wouldnt worry too much about picking this phone up.

    Yup, if it didn't have a Sprint brand out of the factory it isn't getting activated unless you can find a way to spoof the ESN.

    What do you mean Nexus ROM? It runs Android 2.1. The only thing special about the Nexus One is the hardware. It runs Android just like the Moment (well, just like the Moment WILL run when its updated).

    And I wouldnt hold your breath for it coming to Sprint.

    - By the time the Nexus gets to Verizon, there will likely be another even more desirable phone on the horizon. If you keep waiting for the perfect device, you'll never buy a thing!
    - There won't be a Nexus One rom per se, we are already getting 2.1.
    - Verizon is NOT switching to GSM! They are moving to LTE for their 4G which is GSM based and eventually cell phones will just use one data standard for voice and data as opposed to todays separate voice(GSM, CDMA) and data (EVDO,HSDPA etc). This will take years to accomplish. I'm not an expert on this, maybe someone more knowlegeable will have better info.
    - If Google markets a open CDMA version of the Nexus, it could work on Sprint if they choose to allow it. The initial info seems to indicate that Verizon might subsidize the phone like t-mobile. Even if Sprint were to allow it on their network, you would be paying $550+ for the phone unless they choose to subsidize too.

    The Nexus is the hot phone of the moment(!), but isn't earth shattering. It really seems to have pissed off the Droid owners who only get a month or so as the Big Fish. Once the applicable phones like the Moment get 2.1, there won't be nearly as much drooling over the Nexus. The speed and screen size differences aren't enough to make the Nexus's usable lifespan significantly longer than the Moment, Droid or even the Hero. For me, the lack of a hard keyboard is a no starter anyway. I've tried my fair share of soft keyboards and text entry schemes over the years and I don't like them one bit.

    I've been watching a bunch of Nexus One videos, and while for a minute I thought I was falling in love with it, to the point of seriously considering leaving Sprint, I now think I'm really infatuated with 2.1. I really, really hope it runs similarly on the Moment, and specifically the speech to text, which may render all keyboards completely useless. Anyways, it's very exciting, and I'm very glad I went with Android. And I think I'll stick with Sprint considering 10 months from now I'll qualify for a full upgrade anyway. :)

    I was told from the google employee who let me play with their nexus for a few hours that it will NOT. Be on sprint

    I was actually thinking about this as well. I remember them mentioning they were looking into next gen GSM for the 4G network. I haven't heard anything about that in a long while tho. I could see that happening, but I don't think it will.

    More likely they will just add a CDMA radio into the VZW Nexus....maybe global phone....maybe just CDMA.

    That and the face plate of the Nexus looks surprisingly like the Moment without the buttons. Look at the speaker grill and the grey/silver border.

    Nexus 1 is NOT coming to Sprint anytime soon sorry. You better return your moment. Tmobile is only $180 plus 80$/month 2 years plan.

    Rendering keyboards useless will never happen. I'm never going to voice text messages or emails in the middle of a crowd. Would definitely come in handy in the car to have voice capabilities be more efficient.

    In regards to the Nexus, it is an HTC phone, and even if Sprint doesn't get the Nexus, I'm sure a gen 2 Hero will be quite comparable. I don't think Sprint would have it any other way. Depending on the time frame, the 2nd gen Hero could possibly have better specs than the Nexus or just benefit from a few more months in R&D.
