1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

Sooo, will you switch from Droid to N1 on VZW?

    I'm not sure if I will or not. I've been very happy with my Droid, but never use the physical keyboard. I will probably wait until there is a direct review between the two before I decide so I can compare them both on official 2.1 systems, but I have to say it is very tempting.

    N1 will never be on VZ because it only supports GSM.

    It's all about the keyboard.

    Not to mention I won't be eligible for an upgrade then that finally comes to VZW, so I'll be damned if I'm gonna pay 500 for a new phone.

    Don't worry. By the time you're available to upgrade, there will be another phone that will be far more advanced, and the Nexus One owners will be in the same shoes as us by then. :icon_ banana:

    The only thing that will make me Really think of switching is if the Verizon Nexus One will be a world phone; CDMA + GSM. That way I get Verizon at home, and GSM if I ever travel out of the country. Then, I'll really be considering it.

    Not that the Droid is better, but I do like having the keyboard, I NES and SNES constantly.

    What... Am I the only one looking forward for Nexus One? I'll start on saving on lunch money so that I can buy this thing. If ever I do not like it, then I'll just return it and stick with my Droid.

    i won't. primarily because the droid is getting os 2.1 and there won't be a significant enough performance difference between the two phones to justify a switch.

    if you don't already have a droid i think the choice will come down to whether you want the option of a physical keyboard or a slightly slimmer device without a keyboard. another advantage for the nexus could be if vzw gets a gsm compatible version.

    1. Echo is right on target.

    2. No, for reason one.

    I believe we are all forgetting how nice the Droid is on its own!
    Especially since we will likely put the same OS on it as the N1.

    While I may not use it much, I like having the physical KB...

    Droid is a great phone and the hardware is equal if not better than the N1.


    I am only worried about the software updates. G1 is still on 1.6? I feel sorry for them. I remember my iPod getting stuck with its first software version and that is really disappointing. As long as Google provides sufficient updates I will be happy with my phone and my next phone will also run Android.

    Some of you seem to think the N1 is some amazing new upgrade, note that the software that is on the N1 is updated and will be coming to the Droid. That will most likely happen before you can purchase the N1 with Verizon.

    I also find myself not using the keyboard anymore because the onscreen keyboard is pretty good! Coming from a BB Storm I wasn't very sure I "just" wanted a touchscreen keyboard but it is completely usable. I will be buying the N1 when it comes out though the off contract price is not that high especially if you sell your old phone to subsidize it! Yes I am a phone whore and Yes I do love my DROID
