    Google did not make the phone. HTC did

    its just coming with android 2.1, which us droid users will get anyways

    I would still choose droid over the nexus one cuz it has a keyboard

    HTC did the hardware, but it's 100% Googles phone. Google controls this device entirely... where as other HTC devices have Sense added to it.
    Also Google is controlling the flow of this device released to the market.

    Probably because of the Snapdragon processor.

    Again..I'll ask... going crazy? Who?... people on T-Mobile who haven't gotten a phone since the G-1? The phone has had no hype due to it being grid-locked on that one carrier in the US.

    If you consider tech-blogs as a form of advertising on the masses...then maybe.

    I care about Android 2.1 more than the Nexus 1 to be honest. I really don't know if it being under Google's control makes a difference. Only time will tell but let's say Google gets stingy with the updates (doubtful), you know someone is going to cook up a rom with everything anyway. It may not be official and will require rooting, but it will be available.

    And like Backnblack said, those not into rooting will still get 'stolen' goodies to play with.

    I would have been a bigger fan of the N1 if the speed gap was geater. But from what I've seen, it really doesn't seem to be anything to call home about. For people with a G1, Hero, or Eris on the other hand, it will be a big jump.

    I also love how people make something out of nothing. You realize why Google can't get "stingy" with updates is for one specific reason. The developers will leave the Android OS. There can't be fragmentation of the OS or developers cannot profit. The Moto Droid will have the highest share of marketplace potential out of all Android devices going in to 4G...then it is a whole new ball game.

    Last time I checked the MyTouch and G-1 did not do a whole lot of much for the app marketplace and that was after how long?

    I can see why: It's just that seeing the supposed latest and greatist tends to give us a tinge of remorse.

    We have the Droid, which collectively has been what we ubergeeks would tout as the best thing since flash drives.

    I think we would feel it less if it was another year before they dropped this hardware on the public. We would have 2.1 for a while and be able to go

    nyaa nyaa nyaa !

    to the others who would love to have it but can't / won't.

    I love my Droid, and I'll love it even more with 2.1, and I'll watch the supposed newer stuff go by as I do my 2 years until I can upgrade.

    IMO it is nothing more than envy as you realize that HW wise, it may no longer be king.

    In this case however, going to T-Mobile, I'm really not concerned.
    Could you see the ruckus if it came to VZ ?

    :)

    Heh, well that's the other thing. Even with all the hoopla, you know most people are going to go the subsidized route. With Tmobile being one of the smaller guys and having a not-so-good record to boot, I wonder how it is all going to play out?
