This is a discussion on Official Nexus One VERIZON thread! within the Verizon forums, part of the Android Phone Carriers category; Originally Posted by nihilion Originally Posted by jsilvers525 if you think that's amazing wait until you get your hands on the nexus one. anybody else ...
ok so here is what needs to happen. for all those who are able to make the wait and get the nexus one for verizon please read on...
once we all get our shiny new n1's we all need to get a tethering app running on our phone (either pay for one or root) and then connect it to our laptop/desktop. from there connect to teh internets via our n1's and then start downloading the biggest files that you can possibly find. or start up some ques from p2ps, and don't stop downloading until the network errors out!!! make us wait in the dark will you verizon? you shall pay!
so who's down?
the ultimate phone would be the nexus one except were the capacitive buttons are and were the black part on top of the screen would be part of the screen. no trackball but that whole area light up different colors somehow(see through or something). a front facing camera(vzw announced partnership with skype), on verizon NOW, flash, 8mp camera. obviously what i mentioned could be improved but i'm talking realisticly. oh yeah also android 3.0(not out but i'm sure it would be awesome).
We should all go around (or maybe make a list) of all the sites with google nexus one banner ads on the page, those banner ads are generally pay per click. Now if we made a list and went to a bunch of sites and started clicking on those banners it would generate revenue for the sites (so don't get urls to bad websites, only support ones who are trusted in the "scene"). But it would also cost google money to have a ton of people going around clicking all their banners and not actually buy anything. I think this would send the message to google that yes we do want their product but its not available on a carrier we need. And maybe google will step up their efforts to force verizons hand. Its all about $$$ folks and if it starts costing google money then they WILL do something about it. Wether it be by removing the ads or contacting verizon to get a move on. I don't see them removing the ads so the alternative would be their only plausible option. Anyhow thats just my train of thinking. It might not work, but it would also help some of us vent off some steam. I mean honestly this is just getting ridiculous.
I think the evo is better than the n1
1- the screen is not that big, nexus one has 3.7 the EVO is 4.3. that's half an inch diagonally! (I know its .6)
2-Has HDMI output, dont know how much i would use it but its a big plus
3-Front facing camera, perfect for skype and other apps maybe games
5- 8MP camera!
only negative is sense UI, but maybe someone can root it to have normal android. I almost want to wait till June to have that if it was promise to verizon.
I'm pretty sure the Evo is for Sprint only, but I may be wrong, don't hold me to it.
So, the only good phones that are coming out for Verizon in the near future are the Nexus One, and the HTC Incredible? Is this correct or is there more phones coming out soon?...(Soon as in before July)
