    Have your questions been answered? Google, sadly, didn't anticipate consumers such as yourself. I'm here to help if you have questions.

    Also, if you're in the area, you can always go to the Google campus in Mountain View, CA and play with the phone.

    I love my Motorola Droid. But, it severely hampers my ability to get my work done.

    There are rumors that the Verizon version will have the Sense UI and increased RAM, which is my biggest complaint about the Nexus One.

    If you desire a hard keyboard, consider the Droid. If touch screen is your preference, then jump aboard the Nexus One. Sure, the App Store (Market in Android) is not as large as Apple's, but many of the popular apps are often available on multiple platforms. The screen is pretty, but it's difficult to view in full brightness under direct sunlight. SD cards are used for multimedia, but the OS does not utilize this memory for system resources, which is annoying if you're app happy and download as much apps as you can.

    If you're a fan of the Google ecosystem, then you'll enjoy the phone's integration with a multitude of services such as Maps (with Buzz, Latitude, and Navigate functionality), YouTube, GTalk, GMail, Calender, Voice, Earth, etc.

    Since I've been an iPhone user since 2007, the differences between the phones sharply stood out. I prefer the keyboard, website layout, and music interfaces (obviously) of the iPhone. On the other hand, I enjoy the Maps, email, and contact integration of the Nexus One. Surprisingly, the call quality is clearer and I have not had one singled dropped call on it. Yes, I'm only on the EDGE network on AT&T, but the call quality and weekly dropped calls on both EDGE and 3G networks with the iPhone were my biggest gripes with the phone.

    My biggest complaint is not with the phone itself, but Google's direction with Android and its fragmentation that most likely creates consumer confusion. I believe there are four Android OS variations in the market. That must boggle the mind of the average consumer with limited technical knowledge, and I don't blame them! I hope Google realizes this quickly. Microsoft learned this the hard way and they're trying to make amends with Windows 7 Series Mobile (or whatever the hell it's called). Apple supports the iPhone, iPhone 3G, and iPhone 3GS with iPhone OS 3.0 and rumors are that the upcoming OS 4.0 will not support the first generation iPhone, but at least consumer choice is easier to make when shopping for an iPhone.

    OK so in layman terms which is easier to use the Droid or Nexus? Which will surf the web easier, such as using web based email and clicking links? Are the non Mac OS' easier to manipulate like PC's can be used w/ linux? Can you change browsers like computers?

    From my understanding, the big differences between the Droid and the Nexus are...

    - Slide keyboard on Droid
    - Android 2.0 (it will eventually jump to 2.1, which the N1 is currently running)
    - Sense UI ("pretty" interface that will show up on Verizon N1)
    - Different look on each home page (per manufacturer)

    That's pretty much it. Both have decent browsers that function just as well as Safari does on iPhone.

    Android OS based phones will have browser variations. The Market (Android's version of an App Store) has Dolphin and Opera Mini beta as alternatives to browsers. Firefox will also be releasing a mobile browser later in the year. However, your choices are limited to Safari only on locked iPhones.

    Do you think Nexus will always be a step ahead of the Droid?

    How do you mean - OS wise? No, once 2.1 is released on the Droid, then the phone will be equal in terms of OS functionality.

    What I mean is when any updates come out will Nexus get them first? Which is more Mac friendly?

    Droid has a physical QWERTY keyboard. Nexus is full touch. If you prefer one over the other choose that one. Nexus also has a faster processor BUT you have to use it on TMO , right now to get HSDPA, Don't think TMO had launched HSDPA+ in many markets yet.

    I like the speed of the Nexus and if Verizon gets it and doesn't cripple it like ATT did to the Backflop it will be the best phone on Verizon, hands down. If it launched with 2.0 or2.1 VZW will not be able to cripple at all as its an open source handset on Android 1.6 and above
