    Well too soon for me. My plan was to keep the Nexus at least 2 years.. so I plan to skip the 2011 generation of phones. Even if that was not my plan, I dont see any reason to drop a pile of cash yet...

    Now I am eyeing some tablets like the Asus Transformer. I will probably add a nice wifi only tablet to be paired with my hotstop this year.

    AT&T Nexus One - Not Rooted

    Although not a leader with its hardware, but can still be credited, is the HTC Inspire. Finally, AT&T has High-end Android phones ( Minus the Nexus One ).. I loved the EVO but hated Sprint, so with the HTC Inspire being almost identical, definitely moved me in that direction.

    However....Verizon's HTC Thunderbolt and Droid Bionic is.....Siiick. Anyone else agree?

    Phone is great but....Ewwwww.. Touchwiz UI is such a turn off.
    I don't care for Touchwiz either, which is why I use Launcher Pro. It will go lovely with my Galaxy Tab. Samsung is definitely underrated.

    Makes me feel dirty to say this but all of the problems that drove me away from the iPhone towards Android have now been fixed. So probably a white iPhone 5 (God I need a shower now)

    The thing is I am always looking for single device that does EVERYTHING for me:
    1. Phone calls
    2. Netflix streaming with TV mirroring for full cable experience
    3. HID Bluetooth keyboard support with TV mirroring for full computer experience
    4. Wiimote/Emulator gaming with TV mirroring for full console experience
    5. Great camera
    6. Voice recording
    7. GPS directions (navigon app is cheap enough @ $17 on sale and doesn't need data with on board maps)
    8. Free texting with Google Voice app (Apple has now approved this)
    9. Music player
    10. Flashlight
    11. Pocket organizer

    The 1st thing that keep the Nexus One from being my perfect device for me is the lack of TV mirroring for the full computer/game console/cable experience. The 2nd thing that keeps the Nexus One from being perfect is the lack of HID Bluetooth keyboard support. You can buy the $80 - 100 Freedom Pro Keyboard but it lags while typing and I already have an HID bluetooth keyboard and don't want to spend that much money for something that should be already included in Android.

    The iPhone fulfills all of these technology needs for me (especially the TV mirroring) and while the Droid Bionic and LG Optimus coming out in 2011 will have the TV mirroring as well they won't have HID bluetooth keyboard support. Another few things that the iPhone has as advantages over Android to influence my decision would be:
    - Updates on time for everyone
    - Having a top phone of its category for at least 1 full year
    - Gets all of the good apps months before Android
    - Google also eliminated a big advantage of Android over iOS, the 24hr app return policy

    What caused me to leave my iPhone 3gs before for the Nexus One was:
    - Google Voice app being rejected (now fixed by approval from Apple)
    - Lack of a cheap GPS option (now fixed with Navigon app)
    - Lack of multitasking (now fixed with iOS 4)
    - Lack of camera flash (now fixed with iPhone 4)
    - Lack of homescreen customization (now fixed with iOS 4)
    - Lack of removable battery (now easily replaced in iPhone 4)
    - Non-Att carrier (now fixed with Verizon iPhone)

    The biggest thing that absolutely cannot be replaced is the savings that I have with the Nexus One by only paying $30/mo for 500 min and $10/mo for unlimited data on T-mobile

    I'm just not sure yet if it is worth it to pay $30 extra per month ($40 that I'm now paying vs $70 that I would be paying for Verizon iPhone) for a device that does everything. But I guess that I can't keep the Nexus One forever and I will eventually have to pay this amount no matter what phone I eventually upgrade to so I probably just have to suck it up and pay for an all-in-one solution...

    Well I had the Nexus S for about 10 days but returned it for 3 simple reasons:

    1. T-mobile blocks web2go on the Nexus S and I'm not looking to pay an extra $20/mo and $240 per year for the same type of smartphone as my Nexus One ($10 data vs $30 data). If I have to pay more I'm going to go with Verizon who has more 3g coverage than anyone else.

    2. Google is holding back the 2.3 update for a few months by request from Samsung so that the Nexus S has an advantage in sales. You don't see Apple holding back an iOS update from iPhone 3gs users just because they have a newer model and Google should be held to the same standard.

    3. Nexus S feels like last years technology. It was the best Android phone of 2010 but we are in 2011 and I want next gen technology. As soon as you get a Nexus S you know that the hardware is going to be outdated in 1 - 2 months whereas with the iPhone you know you will have the top phone of its kind (and high resale value) for an entire year.

    do you have actual proof of this or is this just your guess?
