Hi,

I'm seriously thinking of buying a N1 as soon as it come to Europe, but before that I'd like to have a honest feedback from you, lucky US owners.

I read in some reviews that there seems to be some little problems with the 4 soft keys found below the screen. It seems that some people complain about these keys not correctly registering keystrokes.

Even if it seems pretty hard for me to imagine that no one in Google or HTC would have noticed such a problem before the phone came to market, I'd like to have your opinion...

Is there a real problem, or is it just something you get used to (where to touch the key) after having played a few hours with the phone?

Because IF there is really something strange here, then maybe the HTC bravo (the same as the N1 but with hardware keys) would be a better fit.

Thanks in advance.

Yeah man you just get used to tapping slightly on or above the icon. It's a non issue for me.

The truth is it didn't even take getting used to for me since the whole phone is different than my last one. It's just where you're supposed tap, to me.

I've realized that you just have to press it in a certain spot with a certain pressure. I don't think its a problem any longer and I actually think they were designed that way so that you don't accidentally press them.

the touch points are annoying at first but I am getting used to it. The trackball comes in handy because you can use it to select and push if your fingers wont register right.

softkeys not an issue at all... it gets exaggerated I think... and once you get used to them, it's really a non issue... i prefer having to press a tiny bit then have them overly sensitive and hitting them by accident all the time...

and yes, the trackball is indeed awesome!
