Googlephone II: The Google Strikes Back

I really like the iPhone and I haven’t felt much need to try Android. I think Android is a viable competitor to Apple but neither Android nor the hardware it runs on have been up to the iPhone level.

That may be about to change.

This thing is teh sexy. Pure Google Android 2.3 (Gingerbread). No carrier crapware or lock in. And damn did Samsung do a nice job on that design.

It’s the first Android phone that looks like a potential iPhone killer to me.

When December 16th rolls around I think I’m gonna have to add a line to my wireless plan. I’m not ready to give up my iPhone but I will make room in my pockets for that sexy beast.

    Meh… I don’t NEED another damn phone to carry… two is enough… I just want ONE that actually works world wide (which right now is the Iphone.

    For what its worth, the wife Upgraded from an Aging iPhone 3G to a Droid X and hasn’t looked back. She does say the iPhone was a better MP3 player (which is understandable as its an MP3 player at heart with other stuff added to it) but everything else is superior in her book.

    For what it’s worth, as I think the iPhones suck from “Go” 😉

    I was tempted to buy one until I read that it’s still a 3G phone. I’ll stick with my Nexus One for now. Having a carrier-independent phone is pretty great, though; no bloatware and you don’t have to root it because its features aren’t crippled out of the box.

    And unfortunately for me there is no AT&T 3G version of the Nexus S.

    Looks like I won’t be getting one either.
