    Copy and paste is extremely limited on Nexus One. Might want to add that to your review.

      uhhhh no its not… you can copy paste from anywhere to anywhere… this has been a feature of android since the begining… thats a lot more than iphones can say as they just got it and it is no where near as nice… you need to check your facts before you make your self look any dumber…

    they also forgot to mention the nexus 1ghz proc vs. the iphones sad little 600 mhz proc and the fact that they said that there "still waiting" for flash leads me to believe that the makers of this video aren't up on tech news at all… the iphone will never be getting flash… adobe has tried many times but steve jobs says " the people at adobe are lazy and that his users don't need flash and that html 5 is the future" well steeeeave, that may be true that html 5 is the future and android already fully supports it, but what about NOW??? flash makes up 75 % of all media on the web… hmmmm and don't even get me started on no multitasking…. i'm sorry thats just silly…

    Nexus One is a good phone but it is not the iPhone. Period!

      You’re right. It’s not the iPhone. That’s why it’s better. It doesn’t have a crappy camera, has a larger, brighter screen, has a much more powerful processor, unlimited customization options, is actually THINNER, has real multitasking, a camera flash, the most amazing notification system in the business, and on and on and on. Poor iCultists. Never able to think outside of the iBox. And yes, that includes the iPad.

        Sigh. Having better specs doesn't make the Nexus One a better phone. It's not selling anywhere near as well as the iPhone and the iPhone continues to provide a much more enjoyable user experience than any Android device. According the J.D. Power and Associates survey, the iPhone still leads in customer satisfaction over it's competitors. Check it out at: http://www.jdpower.com/Telecom/ratings/wireless-c

        Anyway, enjoy touting the nexus one specs for now. It's going to be a short lived victory when the next iPhone comes out and bests every one of those specs.

        Poor Android fanboys, still can't see what really continues to make the iPhone a better device.

          Poor Apple fanboy, still cant see Steve Jobs has you in a nice little cage. When you have to Jailbreak your phone to get the ability to customize it, and doing so is actually illegal via breaking your contract, thats really better?

          Prepared to be let down on your hopes for a better iphone. The arrogant Steve Jobs with his RDF, NIH,NIMBY attitude will see to that fail. Any potential, ground breaking, drip dead improvements won't happen. And wow, how you fanbois memory is so short now with the ipad epic fail. Not the hype it turned out to be, huh?

      you cultist. the iPhone is no where near as good as Android Products, i have no idea how The Droid lost to it, i have played around with an iPhone and currently own a G1 and i still think the iPhone sucks. i'd rather have the slow assed G1 with Android than a faster iPhone, of which the N1 and Droid are just as fast as the iPhone.

    Cant say I ever wanted the iPhone. Didnt much care for the design of it. And the fact that the first iteration couldnt even do all I wanted a phone to do.
    Android has its flaws, and its not quite mature yet but I have to say, from the moment I got my first android I havent beena ble to use another phone without getting frustrated with the craptastic UIs they have. Im pretty sure the iPhone is good at that as welll, since user interfaces is pretty mucht he only thing apple does best. And user interfaces are damn important, probably *the* most important thing in software.

    Well Guys, this is a veritable bunfight.

    The bottom line is that no matter which way you look at it, the iPhone has been hugley influential BECAUSE of the UI. The hardware is basic, and in this day and age, whould not see the light of day, but the UI is awsome.

    My gut feeling is that Android will be the winner, but it needs more polish, and a bit more maturity, it is certainly where we are putting our effort.
