    New Canadian Here...

    Hello,

    Great resource you have here. Been browsing for a little while now, thought I'd join in on the posting fun.

    Name's Chris, from Winnipeg, Canada. Ordered my Nexus One on March 16th, came within 48 hours and I'm loving it.

    I subtly try to make sure everyone around me knows I have a Nexus One, lol. When at a restaurant, at work, at school, I always leave my phone on the table/desk and wait for people to ask "Is that an iPhone?" Then I educate them. It's fun.

    Hope to chat with you guys and learn more about making the best of out my phone. Thanks in advance to those who will inevitably provide me with useful advice.

    -Chris

    Welcome Chris. I'm from Vancouver.

    Isn't it awesome how people immediately think it's an iPhone
    Then they get all confused when you say Android but when they see the GOOGLE on the back then they get all freaked out and want one. lol

    I never use to get asked, but with the iPhone4 around the corner (for Canadians) a few people have asked me if it's the new iPhone. :\

    Hello, fellow Winnipegger!

    Had mine for 5 weeks now, and love it! It's nice to have an N1 when everyone around me has an iPhone.

    If I had a quarter for every time I heard "Is that an iPhone"?

    I really hope the name iPhone doesn't become synonymous with a smartphone, like "Kleenex" did for tissues...

    Geez... quite the small world huh? And here I thought I was the only Winnipeger who had a N1. Would've been cool if I were though, lol.
