Hi. Anyone actually have the Nexus One yet? I was just interested in the activation process. From the link on the www.google.com/phone/ page there is a link that reads, "Activate my phone".

How does the activation process work? Do you have to have a google or gmail type of account in order to get the phone or any services to work? Thanks.

Having a Google account helps, especially with gmail and gcalendar and gdocs, but it is not necessary. You can get pop3 emails off your other accounts and stuff.

But the Google stuff is so much more integrated with Android phones, so it is a shame not to make yourself a Google account and make use of al the bells and whistles that Google integration has on the Android platform.

So my advice is sign up to Google Mail and stuff anyhow and enjoy the synchronisation that you get from these services.
