Boy, Miami really let the air out of this balloon when he said that the N1 had been pushed to June. Not that I'm not grateful for Miami and his wealth of information (btw, thanks Miami for all of the info!!), but this thread is basically on life support now.
Trust me, im still pulling for the VZW N1. I will end up with it one day. I just couldnt be without a phone any longer.
Bought the AT&T N1.
Since we're all just waiting... We've all read the recent articles and bad press about all of the supposed quality issues with Nexus One. I have to see they got me thinking. But mostly about how out of proportion it seems...
I don't understand why A) there would be so many problems with this phone in particular and B) why all the publicity on the problems get directed at Google?
Google does not make the phone. HTC does. In this case Google is simply acting as the retailer. They ARE responsible for the operating system, but unless I'm mistaken, it's the exact same operating system as dozens of other Android phones, including other Android phones made by HTC.
The way I see it, you have three possibilities for problems with a phone:
Nexus is stock Android. Same operating system as now on dozens of Android phones, none of which are suffering (to my knowledge) from this supposed quality issue. Why would it only act up on this one particular piece of...
HTC makes dozens of models of phones. Many of them Android. My understanding is they have a pretty good track record for quality. Do their other Android phones have similar issues? So why the issues with this one? Why would they 'cheap out' on this one? Or is it the way the hardware interacts with...
3) The Network:
T-Mobile isn't known for their network. So this could be the root of much of the connectivity issues. Once more people from ATT get on board we'll see. Although they have their own issues. Doesn't explain dust or cracked screens, erratic touch screen behavior though.
So what gives? Are the issues overblown, or did HTC make a crappy phone when it developed the N1 for Google? Or is it that HTC really does make crappy phones but the regular carrier gatekeepers have better quality control - so the HTC phones sold through carriers go through a more rigorous QA process than Google required for theirs - so maybe it is Google's fault after all??!
