    How can they compare when Droid has 2.01 and N1 has 2.1?

    about 6:36 you will notice the problem with the calibration with the bottom 4 keys on the Nexus. Doesn't register unless you press above the key.

    Good video nontheless...it would be nice to see the Droid run 2.1

    very nice review, can't wait for the Droid to get 2.1, I love the new app tray and live wallpapers.

    So does that mean the Droid wins after it has 2.1? On another note, I'm obviously biased but I do think the Droid looks more stylish. I'm not really into the rounded edges.

    it's no different than them comparing 2.0.1/2.1 to the iphone.

    The N1 looks great! They are very close in terms of performance and will be pretty even when droid gets 2.1. It's a win win for Android, the pretty set will get the N1 and the industrious set will opt for the droid!

    It would have to be a night and day difference for me to switch, which that was not.

    I don't mind the rounded edges, but the grey plastic looks terrible in comparison.

    Agreed - they should cut down on the plastic when your spending that much on a phone.

    they are totally different and offer different things for different consumers.

    N1 and Droid are almost the same and to get the best comparison, the same version of Android running on both of them would be best.

    I am a big fan of OLED technology so I am glad to hear there is a difference between the phone's displays. My next TV/Laptop/Phone will have OLED display :)

    I would have liked to see her contrast performance, rather than 2.1 apps vs 2.01 apps which we have all already pilfered anyway. but alas, that would be more of the Tech Head review, rather than a consumer review.
