Sadly, My Nexus Will be no more
I've been going back and forth on this recently, but I now know that when the fourth generation iPhone comes out I will be moving back to AT&T. I love my Nexus and everything it offers, but after living with it for a few months I've decided that what I use it for most (music, video, apps) the Nexus One just isn't quite there yet. I'll have to pay the $200 ETF with t-mobile, but selling the Nexus on here or on ebay should eliminate that cost and the cost of the new phone.
Now, don't take this as a knock against the Nexus. Its a great phone and a great device. For me though, since my very first smartphone was the iPhone 3G, the experience just is too different and I got used to using my phone for certain things that Android still lags behind with. I'm also a little bit of a freak about getting accessories and the like, which is a fair bit more difficult with anything that isn't the iPhone.
The only question now is what the new iPhone's final software build will be like, and the details about the hardware.

Definitely understandable... I'll be picking one up, but
that's because I'm a phone *****. My N1 will still
remain my main device. I really don't do media unless
it's podcasts or a playlist (of music) when I'm at the
gym, so this may be my reasons for not minding which
device has better media capabilities. What ever you
choose, hope it's the right and best decision.

What do you expect to get from the iPhone 4 that you can't get from the N1?
I've read all the reviews and announcements and speculation. I'm not seeing anything it does better EXCEPT having a front facing camera.
But you mentioned media. I'm not seeing how the Flash lockout helps that. I'm not seeing anything the iP4 does in the media arena better than the N1.
So what did I miss that lured you back to the iP4?
(Not arguing, just askin).

Odd you still a think the iPhone interface is the slickest, it hasn't changed significantly since it was introduced in 2007. Its old, stodge, an reminds me a lot of windows 3.1 with icons locked in place all over the desktop. The notifications look and work like windows 3.1 pop-ups, no where near as functional as Android. No folders, no "All-Apps" display, just endless paging thru springboard screens looking for your misplaced Icon.
Frozen in time with less functionality than Windows 3.1.
I really don't understand why people still think its the best. Its far from the best.

If you buy music from amazon it works fine. And you can embed them yourself. Having a separate .folder or whatever on the side is a bad habit, is not a standard and is not even same between mac and windows.

 If you really don't have the money then by all means sell the nexus, but i feel as if you should keep it because i have a feeling gingerbread will be even bigger than froyo. It would suck if you reading the web stating how amazing it is and you have to buy another android phone.
