    Im running out of patience rather quickly here...I been waiting to see of the HTC Desire will be indeed coming to Att. I been following the CTIA coverage and nothing! nada!!! no confirmation that the Desire would even be coming to the states! after thinking about it much and seeing tons and tons of youtube videos of Nexus One...i have decided to go ahead and put my beloved Jailbroken Iphone for sale and get my Nexus One...before i make my purchase i had a few questions:

    How effective is the "push" notification for email on the Nexus One? im a heavy email user and trust me if i did fine on my iPhone i be i will be fine on Android but i wanted to know how well the push email worked....does email come thru right away?

    and my other question is, does my phone have to be rooted for the Trackball lighting to work?... (in different colors)

    Any advice also would be appreciated! i been an iPhone and Blackberry User for almost 3 years! played around with a few Android devices here and there but never owned one...Thanks guys!!

    For me push seems rather fast and almost immediate. I created a draft and checked my phone right away to see it already on my phone.

    Labels is a feature that the Gmail app has.

    "Undo" is another feature on the N1 (android) that is awesome too.

    If you use Gmail, you should not even worry about being better than the iPhone at sending/receiving.

    i can feel ya, its hard seeing everyone with smart phones when i have the voyager which is a GED phone. it can go online and do some stuff and i think thats worse then having a dumb phone, at least with a dumb phone you can just play it off, when my friends whip out their smart phones and im trying to look something up and they find it first its really frustrating.

    i have cash set aside for this from my tax return and i could get the eris but it wont get flash. the droids keyboard is useless. honestly it if it didnt have a keyboard i might have got that already. everyday i try to check android centrals main page from my phone at work, to see if the nexus was announced for verizon and it takes like 3 mins to load... FFFFFFUUUUU this is why i want it, so i can check to see if it is out! WHAT KIND OF SICK IRONY IS THATTT!!!1

    bleh but i digress.. i must remain patient... :/

    Fareo if you can wait another month, I would hold off on that N1 purchase. The Incredible will be coming out at the end of April, and it tops the N1, by a mile.

    Do we have an official release date??? Last I heard (on this site) was the rumoured date was the beginning of April. Has it been delayed?

    is it really that much better? lets keep in mind ive never owned a smart phone, id be impressed with the Eris/Hero right now and if it was getting flash i would have bought it...?

    that and i just kinda like the look of the nexus, only thing thats really gonna stop me on the nexus is the verzion new every 2 credit which i dont think ill be able to get.. if not then ya the incredible might be the way to go.. i donno ugh..

    2 years of this voyager with everyone telling me what they can do with thier iphone or android phone and im so close, im actually ready the only thing holding me back is availability.

    LOL No Fareo, the Incredible doesn't top the N1 by a mile, doesn't top it at all. It's the exact something except its ugly (personal opinion) and its underclocked which means slower then the N1 but saves a little, little amount of battery. Just get the N1 I can guarantee you won't be disappointed. If you have gmail then the push is almost instant but anything else will have to be set to check on an timely basic (example: every hour) I'll tell you though it sucks for regular email and I had problems, had to set it up manually and use 3G, oddly wouldn't work on Wi-Fi. Yes, you have to root to get the colored LED trackball. You can root and install Cyanogen mod which comes with it or install the patch separately. Also the benefit of rooting is installing custom ROMs. I use the Cyanogen mod and the Desire Sense UI 2.1 which I really like a lot and works well. So if you like the Desire and Sense UI then get the N1(Desires twin, except the Desire has physical buttons) and root it and install the Desire ROM or any other ROM you'd like. Hope I helped :-)

    Thanks Nerdy One for the info! I will go ahead and do that then..I'm gonna give in and buy the Nexus One tonight!

    Btw...in my opinion..the Incredible just doesn't have the clean lines of the N1 (if the Incredible pics are the actual real pics) and according to rumors it's underclocked

    Nexus 1 here I come!

    doesn't matter what comes out... the EVO 4G announcement blows anything and everything out of the water.... if i didn't have the Nexus, that's what I'd be gunning for... and in fact, if i can ever bring myself to Sprint (which I don't think I can, but who knows)... i might still just get one...

    They're essential the same phone, except for the fact that the incredible has sense UI and a trackpad (rather than a trackball), which IMO does not make it better what so ever if you prefer a trackball. I can probably search & put sense on my N1 if I wanted to, but I'm happened with what I have (n1) now, for now.
