And I am kinda confused about honeycomb. I know that i will be optimized for tablets, but what about smart phones? I assuming there are two versions of honeycomb.
And I don't know why people are complaining, clearly google is not ready to optimize dual core for smart phones yet, or they would of waited to showcase the Nexus S with honeycomb. And is there even a need for dual-core yet? Either way I think there is enough change that make me want to pick up the Nexus S!!!
i'll be sticking with my N1.
I've had the phone nearly a year and i'm still on the standard roms, once GB is out and i've had a mess around with that, i shall root the phone and probably spend the next year messing around with various roms. I'm only just scratching the surface with what this phone can do so see no need to go and splash out on the NS.
By the time the next year is up the specs for the next generation of nexus will hopefully be released and i'll be buying into a proper "next gen" handset.
I've always had 18-24 months out of any handset so see no reason not to follow that with the N1.
hi Guy's. sorry to but in but surely. the main thing is they swap to Samsung from HTC and from my experience. of repairing. and selling samsungs over the last 12 years in our shops in Britain there's. a quality build issue with Samsung the HTC is a far better made phone. and why jump ships now? The new HTC desire HD in Britain. is the way to go.
we have had nothing but problems with the Samsung galaxy s it seems as if they have spent £445 on the screen and £5 on the rest of the phone bits keep falling off it ie buttons. stick to what you know build on quality. hysterical God knows they spent enough telling us the build quality. was amazing. on the web adds. anyway what do I know I only been in the mobile phone game for 12years +
wait for january 5th dual core phones are coming out also with gingerbread! dont waste your money on this galaxy S wannabe phone its horrible its a nexus one in a galaxy S body
totally. agree but we in Britain will have to wait a little longer no dual core coming on HTC till later on in the year
I don't think anyone should be too concerned about the disappointment of the Nexus S. I think this is more of an experimental, stop gap phone for Google, to update the functionality of the Nexus 1 and keep a flow of new customers to its unlocked selling model. No point Google customers having the perception that they are buying a dated phone? This is also maybe to get the ball rolling for greater adoption of NFC by other manufacturers and the like.
If Google themselves thought this was a groundbreaking phone, wouldn't they have called it the Nexus 2, or the Xenon 1 or some such? Just like Microsoft Vista was always going to be a stop gap until the actual Windows 7 version released.
I have no doubt that such a phone will be released, probably in 6 months or so (seeing as Google do things so quickly) and when the software is at version 3. Not 2.3!
I just read the 400 page plus Gingerbread manual. I'm just questioning why should I even do an update to FRGD. Why? 80 per cent of the functionality is exactly what I have now. Will it be faster, slicker, I don't know. I bought the N1 10 months ago, and am still discovering the useful things I can do with it.
I'm not prepared to pay the same as I paid 10 months ago for a cosmetic evolution.
Will my N1 be 20% faster. Will the battery last 30% longer ? Who knows. Hell, I'll just await the end of life cycle , casting a sly eye on the next iPhone towards the end.
