same. i wouldn't do colorware people were just saying i wonder how this and that color would look and the website lets you see. i've got a feeling about tomorrow.
i don't see what all the fuss is over the Incredible's 8mp camera. Seriously, above 3mp, MEGAPIXELS DON'T MATTER!!! Camera manufacturers have been increasing mp counts to satisfy consumers obsessed with maximizing specs. There are only two situations when you're going to need more than 3mp: 1) you're blowing up a print to be ridiculously huge,i.e, poster sized, or 2) you're cropping a tiny piece of the image and printing it as if it were a whole image. Other than this, doesn't matter. 5mp is plenty. 8mp is just going to take up more space on your disk.
And anyway, its not like any of you are going to be doing serious photography with a phone. If you were, the mp count would be the least of your problems compared to the plastic optics. N1 > Incredible.
Sheesh people, ease up on the swearing. You're probably wearing Wera's edit button out. :P
As far as colors go, I think it's perfectly sexy the way it is. I really do want to have a good feeling about tomorrow, but I'm reserving my hope for the second I see an updated Google/phone page.
Why on earth would you expect the image quality on your phone to be as good as on a device whose sole function is to produce images? This is the problem: so many people believe that image quality is all about mp counts. Here's a a protip: it isn't. Digital cameras have much higher quality sensors, image post-processing algorithms, and importantly GLASS OPTICS. No matter how many mp you have, an image can only be as clean as the light that hits the sensor. Plastic optics are used on phones because glass is delicate and subject to scratching and cracking, where as plastic is more resilient (and cheap).
Google's not stopping you from making it your own, well the warranty might, but you can do whatever you want to it. I've seen some pretty pimped out N1's around the net. :P
