    But hey..everyone's got the right to feel disappointed too...I'm certainly not going to stand in the way of anyone's need to feel disappointed! It's still just a widget, and Google proved a 'carrier-less' unit could be done, but I think any 'fault' for perceived failure of Google's experiment lies soley on the consumer: displeasure with actually paying a non-subsidised price.

    ap3604 - Trantrum? Obviously you don't have kids. Clearly the intent of the N1 was to shake up the industry. But the bigger picture was providing leadership going forward. Technology moves fast these days, a Nexus Two would be appropriate. Maybe there will be one but it'll be just another HTC device. It's not the same. HTC isn't going to provide leadership. In fairness, maybe it was just too much for Google. They lost control and now they should concentrate on getting all the disparate systems on the same platform.



    Krew - Google gave up the Brand. There's plenty of Android phones now (arguably maybe better than N1 already). I think N1 is history, likely no N2, We'll see what happens next.



    Sheanzy - Did you catch the rumors of 2 Ghz Gingerbread unit from HTC by year-end? Unless you're buying a backup N1 for you museum.......
    Rumors are rumors. What are ylu trying to say about Gingerbread and 2GHz?

    If youre thinking that 2ghz is a standard or requirement to run Gingerbread, then you are well behind.

    The Nexus One was the First Carrier Free Phone in USA

    But... the world is round, in India Carriers and handsets are completely delinked... and have been FOREVER!

    We even have dual SIM mobile phones (GSM& GSM, GSM & CDMA)

    The User is King... that's what we got for jumping in late... went straight from pulse dialing wired phonelines to cellular phones (we skipped the pager era ENTIRELY)

    I REALLY DID NOT WANT TO RESPOND HERE-

    Even if Google failed to change the market model, they at the very least moved android further. From the Nexus One came all the current models of Android phones. Without the N1 Android may not have moved forward as fast since the code would have been stuck with weaker hardware....Sounds like job done to me...
