You can set up your homescreens however you like. If you only want a few app icons on each you're welcome to it. If you want Widgets all over you can have that too. To answer your question I think it would be pretty easy to just fill up the main homescreen with app shortcut icons and it would replicate what you're used to. It's not what I prefer but that's the nice thing about the platform - it's what you like.

Decided I didn't want to reply, deleted, hit back once and I'm right back where I was in my article. All this with my internet radio playing in the background. Seamless and immediate.
My wife has a 3gs. They're both great great phones with a lot of functionality. It all just depends on your preferences in my opinion. If you value super smooth animation transitions 100% of the time and tons of games and multimedia integration over multitasking and customization (out of the box, not getting into rooting or jailbreaking) then the iPhone might be the better fit still.
One more thing the iPhone has a much better music playing apparently. It can change on the n1 once a developer creates a great one.
well i never brought the iphone for music i just brought it beccause it was best for web now it seems its not im feed up of being stuck with itunes and allways worrying about updating my iphone as it be locked and jail breaking it etc i gonna order a n1 just waiting for some funds to clear cheers guys
