    When I do get a job, I wanted to switch from AT&T to T-Mobile. Now I have a reason.

    Middle of the ocean.
    Do want but unfortunately I won't be getting it since my parents don't want to pay for texting and don't want to pay for additional services besides calling really. [​IMG]

    Don't worry!
    The best thing about the Nexus One is that when it doesn't have a SIM card Inside, it goes into VIOP mode! [​IMG]

    Awesome, looking forward to some reviews.
    Hopefully it isn't too expensive here in Belgium though, although I doubt that.

    Read somewhere it's because Apple has a patent on Multitouch for the time being.

    I always thought the iPhone was shit and never bothered to even consider adding it to my very limited budget... but the Nexus... man, maybe some two years down the road I will be getting one of these. Looks really fine.

    Nintendo could just buy a license. It's not like patent = exclusive.

    I read something similar. The European version may have multi-touch as Apple's patent applies to the US.

    Phone looks good. I'd be tempted to get one, just not straight away.

    What prevents Google from doing the same?

    Nintendo does not compete in any manner against Apple, in any field. Google and Apple are direct adversaries fighting for the same emerging market. Do you think that A) Google would actually accept licensing something form Apple and even more B) Apple would license to Google?

    Just to let you all know, the Nexus One is multitouch capable, its just that the stock software isn't using it for its browser, keyboard, or maps (yet). Undoubtedly this will be available in a future OS release for the phone, as multitouch has been confirmed working on it with some other apps (dolphin browser)
