Call me crazy, but I think we need a Nexus One thread..

Google has released a nice series of videos about the Nexus One..

Here is the youtube channel.. (http://www.youtube.com/user/GoogleNexusOne)

But more specifically, Here are some videos (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e2WtBwAL0SE&feature=SeriesPlayList&p=4ACDE3CAD0636572) about the creation and testing of said mobile device ("phone" just doesn't seem to quite cut it...)


That being said, who here has a Nexus One? Or any other Android device...
I'd kill for one, but alas it is illegal.. :arrgh:

Someone who recently joined has one.
If I had the money, I'd have one too.
Still rocking my G1. :icon_mrgreen:

I am in the same boat as you rzm, it is about $575 total (gotta have the dock...).. and that would be $575 that I don't have.. :(

Who has an extra kidney they'd like to donate for a good cause?.. I have my own knife..

I am kinda in the same boat with you.. But I hate qwerty keyboards though.. Either number pad only or nothing for me..

Oh, and speaking of people who have been holding off..

Mr Linus Torvalds (http://torvalds-family.blogspot.com/2010/02/happy-camper.html) (Linux Originator..) himself splurged... And was pleasantly surprised...

those itty bitty keyboards
just piss me off,
its taken Rimmer & rzm61
2 years to teach me to use
the keyboard and the mouse
for video games, (still learning)
I want a full sized keyboard
sitting on a desk that I can
pound the shit out of and throw
away when it cant take it no more
(ask rzm what I can do to a mouse)
(those little pointer pads don't stand a chance)

See Here.. (http://www.thechurchofgoogle.org/forum/showpost.php?p=152564&postcount=22)

But I do hate to use the phone input devices for longer conversations.. A keyboard is a much better tool..

As for games, I don't think I will ever get used to a keyboard.. The best game on earth is Halo (Next to Google's Snakey, of course..) and I have an Xbox to USB adapter for my original Xbox controller (That's the big one; the Duke...)

i still use my logitech extreme 3d pro,
love that puppy, had it rebuilt 3 yrs ago
when i worked at a bomb factory, had
the gimbals redone in titanium, its pretty
indestructible, even drunk i can't over
torque it, the guys in the shop thought
it was hilarious, broke the right hand a
couple of times so had to learn to use
it with the left, current setup is mouse
keyboard, rimmer and rzm are trying to
get me better at it, but if the joystick is
a viable option, i use it and its the only
time i ever get a frag on them,

Bah, I have given up on the keyboard.. Too many buttons that are all covered by a nice controller..

The only thing I really lose is the ability to talk to people when I am online, but to hell with them. I am not there to chit-chat, I am there to kill them...

whoa!
just had a bad visual
of trying to play on a
laptop and using that
ungodly little pad that
some 'tard decided was
a viable option to a mouse
i'd get so frustrated the lappy
would be reduced to its component
molecules in moments

inclination for the other stuff
