So, I used to work at Google so since I'm an ex-employee I can babble as much as I want haha. Anyways, everyone at Google got them as gifts for x-mas last week on the 15th. I was super shocked when a friend pulled it out of his pocket. I have the UK Hero (with updated rom) and the 3GS, and I'll have to say that the N1 performed a bit faster. It has an updated graphics card and you could tell. Things as simple as the icons looked so much crisper then my Hero. The UI moved VERY quick when jumping from app to app, and page to page. It was probably a hair thinner then the iphone, but I wasn't 100% sold on the buttons on the phone. The first thing that came to mind when I saw it was, The Eris. Very very similar in look and feel. It felt heavier then my Hero, but I don't recall if it was heavier then the iphone. The back had a rubbery feel, that really made the phone stick nicely to your hand. The background to me was a little annoying, because you see these digital multi-colored lines animate left, right, up and down. I'll definitely change this when I get mine. Apparantly some friends had it on ATT and some had theirs on T-Mobile. I don't recall if they both were running 3G. Lastly....I'll have mine on Monday. Can't say how, but I'll make sure I stop back in here and post pics, video, and comments.
