and bla bla bla bla… if u want that data, go to htc.com (yes google nexus one is made by htc).. but stick here if you want my view.
By the size of it, its almost the same as iPhone 3g/3gs.. i phone is slightly heavier, but more solid! dimension-wise is still pretty much the same.. iPhone came with power button, volume up & down, vibrate switch and menu button while N1 came with a power button, volume, 4 fix-on-screen buttons and a trackball! (what the?) YEa I know, for those of you who has onyx, gemini, or iphone.. maybe trackball is a step back, however.. I rarely use this trackball, Istill think its a waste, if only they can put in a paper-thin qwerty keyboard.. 😀
iPhone is prettier.. but…. Nexus is?.. lanjut duluuuu…
N1 uses an external memory (microSD). Mine came with a 4GB.. Memory is important when it comes to Multimedia.. (to me it is).. you can tell how many songs, pics, videos you can store. there’s a plus minus in exchangeable/fix.. you know laaa
N1 has a 5mp camera.. but to tell you the truth, it doesn’t take pics as good as G11! LOL (makanya, bacanya jgn serius2). Pics looks great lah (should be for a 5mp with FLASH)
I honestly haven’t tried listening to music yet.. 😐 (no comment on that, i have my ipod video to please me on that department)
Dis is it the main difference with most of the phones out there. I know that BB now is soooo HITS, or Symbian is soooo err… “widely used?” and iPhone yaaa.. iPhone laaah…
but Android (2.1) offers sumthin different. 1st of all, remember that N1 runs on a 1Ghz processor.. its DAMN FAST!!
What I like about android 1st of all is their home screen, it can contains shortcut, widgets, buttons.. changeable wallpapers across several pages of home screen (bingung ga lo?) very customizable.
it follows how windows mobile, symbian and iPhone “provides” cr*cked app (without jailbreaking)… this is where everyone wins against BB! 😛 apps are easy to get thru Andorid Market and Blapk Market
Android supports push notifications.. just like any other smartphones are now capable of..
it can be yet so simple and so complicated…. I still love using qwerty keyboard to type, and its shortcuts.. (secara gw orangnya ga sabaran) but this thing is easy to get used to sih… klo kang lucky gadtorade sempet masa transisi dari BB aja – BB + Andro ke Andro aja.. kejadian di gw ga ya? mmmmm…
Basically, 1 of the reason I bought N1 is insane-gadget-curiosity, slightly cheaper than 3Gs and mmm… disetanin! 😐 or.. BM? haha.. but i enjoyed it so far… what I miss are the games on iphone…… 🙁 no smart phones beats iphone games!!
