    Compared to DROID 3?

    I am thinking about getting a nexus. The only android I've ever had is this D3, has anyone else had the D3 and can offer some comparison?

    My main reservation is losing the keyboard.

    Thanks!

    I came from the Droid, to Droid 3, to now the Galaxy Nexus.

    In terms of OS, the Galaxy Nexus destroys the Droid 3 in.. every way possible pretty much. Especially now that Android 4.1 is out.

    The keyboard.. well, the Droid 3 is perfect for texting while driving.. it was definitely safer if you had to send a quick text at a stop light or something as you didn't have look at the keyboard to type most of the type. The Nexus.. don't text while driving. It's basically impossible. However, texting normally, I find that the keyboard on the Nexus is faster and easier to use.

    I still find myself looking at my phone while talking to it.. so I don't use my phone period while driving anymore unless it's GPS, even at stop lights just in case it turns green soon than expected or something like that.

    That's what I was figuring, I will do some research and find the keyboard software I like best.

    For me the stock keyboard does its job perfectly. Before the gnex i was a physical keyboard only person. I tried using the on-screen keyboard but it never really appealed to me, but with the gnex that changed, and this is coming from a droid 2. The 4.65' screen of the gnex makes it nice and easy to type.
