The Nexus One was a great phone but it does have its down sides. Being an AT&T customer myself I've been pretty pissed about the AT&T offerings recently. In the US T-Mobile and Verizon have a lock on everything. However, I'm really looking forward to the Xperia X10 on AT&T and that will be my replacement to my "ancient" Blackberry 8820 for sure. Stats are almost the same as the Nexus One.

That's what I don't get. Everyone knows HTC made the Nexus One. It could have been so good for Sony. Knobs.
The Nexus One could have been a cash cow for them. It's a real shame they didn't take up the offer. They should have had a Google label with a "powered by Sony Ericsson" slogan or the Sony Ericsson label with a "powered by google" slogan on the back of the phone.
[citation][nom]jhansonxi[/nom]Not surprising. Branding is everything now. Just consider how many different laptop brands are designed and made by the same OEMs like Compal Electronics and Quanta Computer.[/citation]
These are called ODMs (Original Design Manufacturers). An OEM would be HP, Toshiba, etc.
"NOO!! we not make fon fo google... we has enough competition already!!!
epic japanese fail... lol"
Thats just soo right. =)
I am a Sony-Ericsson fan and though I had to buy an HTC and I must say: I love it! Sense UI... mmmmm the best skin for Android so far. X10 sounds a little not exactly clear what it aims at as it comes already very very late. I would choose again HTC legend unboody if I had to buy something new
bydesign what do u mean not as good? not as good as what? the droid? its better in every way shape and form. it just doesnt have a keyboard... other than that faster processor more ram more rom better type of screen should i go on?
Hmm, most reviewers don't agree and sales figures don't support your notion. Plus why not a norm HTC and reduce the effect Google’s greedy little clutches? They also support a much higher than average return rate from dissatisfied customers. Android may not be flop but the Nexon One was a huge one.
