Well you can't say consistency from customers isn't the best way to make things happen. You are quite bold to state there are no issues w/ the current OS. If the phone can be overclocked from 800-1ghz and run perhaps they should flash the phone to perhaps do 600-700 under high CPU demand.
The camera delay is just ridiculous to open. The lack of multitouch in typing SUCKS... Pinch and zoom would be cool but w/e. The web and using maps isn't slow persay but truthfully could be smoother scrolling. Inability to transfer contacts via bluetooth. etc.
There are problems. I just simply was curious if theres any reasons aside from physical keyboard to keep the droid over the nexus one.
My reason for keeping the Droid is that it works and I'm in a 2 yr contract. Whether a TV, Car, PC or Smartphone it goes without saying that shortly after you buy it a better model gets released. You play the game or not. That being said you don't have to wait for updates. There's an excellent thread that was recently started concerning an app that does the rooting for you that the folks at Sholes have put out. There are 2.1 apps you can install on your phone right now. At least my contract wasn't up 6 months earlier and I ended up with some Android phone stuck on 1.5 instead of this 2.0 device that can run anything the Nexus has right now. I've got pinch and zoom in the gallery. I've got it in my browser. I'll probably root and go for for an 800 OC.
And you can bet whoever buys the new phone being released in 3 months with Android 3.0 will be impatient for 3.1 to come out and fix all their problems
This forum has been way better than any update. Thanks to the mods and droidforums.net for being here.
Thank you to all who have served or are serving our great country. You're always in my thoughts and prayers.

Errr I suppose I could root it but I dont want to mess with warranty crap should the phone get some over the air message and brick the phone mid flash. I honestly just want to sell this thing for what I can when the next good phone comes out. No point in paying for smartphone data charges when your not getting what someone else may have.
Nerd envy I suppose.
I Went from an Voyager to Env touch along with Blackberry world edition / Curve/ and Storm at different periods. I used to admin a black berry enterprise server and I know the differences in what smartphones should be able to do.
What pisses me off when when I can do features on my ENV Touch that I can't do on my DROID. I mean seriously.. bluetooth contact transfer isn't even new technology.
For a long time. The Nexus One has an onboard GPU rather than a dedicated one like we have. That's why many of us are not concerned about the animated wallpaper since our dedicated GPU can handle it without straining the CPU.
It also has far worse sound and people can't see it in sunlight - additionally some of the colors are said to be off. The bottom 4 keys are very hard to press as well.
Motorola built us a great piece of hardware - the Nexus is just another cheap phone. Be happy with what you have.
You can sell your phone used when the next better phone comes out but I'd think you'd be doing that 3-4 times during your 2 year contract and losing money. I still think there are way more phones (brands/models) not getting updates than those that do. If money is no option then spend 5 bucks and have a faster more responsive phone in less than an hour. If you don't like it there are simple steps to put it back to stock. Well, ok...1.5 hours because its worth spending 30 minutes going through this thread here:
