ive had both for the past week i would go with the mytouch its light and very easy to use and compared to the cliq it doesnt freeze or force close as often. But i did like the keyboard on the cliq. Just mess with them for a while.

although after looking up the info on the nexus I think I'm going to wait as well. That thing looks badass.

looks like we may be getting the new Dell Mini 3i phones at the new job.

Evidently they are upgrading the speed, adding 3G and wifi, better camera, etc.

Rumor is all Dell employees will be trading in their blackberries and iphones when it is released.

My only real experience w/ android is my old G1, but for whatever reason, it seems more intuitive for me than the iPhone... my wife is kinda lost on it, but I'm not ready to cave and get her an iphone just yet. The past couple days I've been downloading apps that she likes on her friends' iphones and being like "see, this one does it too"

today I was playing with the voice search, and damn if that isn't too cool...

I almost bought a MyTouch earlier this afternoon (after reading this thread and realizing/remembering that it's on an Android OS also )

I'm torn between trying it and seeing if the wife likes it or holding out for the Nexus. Problem there is I'll probably end up with TWO Nexus phones

If I were a t-mobile customer, I'd deff. get the Nexus one.

I'm a VzW customer and got the Moto Droid for Christmas. From what I've read, the Nexus one will have next gen hardware as compared to the Moto Droid, which at this point is pretty cutting edge. Both Moto Droid and Nexus one hardware will support the newest Android OS (2.1), support up coming Google earth, updated GUI, and more.

Nexus one is a soft-keyboard only phone, where the Droid does have a physical + the option of vert+horizontal soft-keyboard, so that is a big difference. Both great devices.

If you are heavily invested (and tied to) iTunes, seems like someone would have a strong case for staying iPhone. There are android apps to manage your iTunes, though.

I would say the apple apps are more developed, but that platform is closed, where as android is not, but the app quality is not as consistent. Still, there are 1,000's of GOOD aps that enable your android device to do all sorts of amazing things.

Things I enjoy doing on my Droid (all the blow FREE):

- Barcode scanning and price shopping, while out
- Using Googles to figure out what I'm looking at, or find a phone number of a business
- Playing NES, SNES, SEGA etc. ROMS (which you can't do with apple)
- root access and command line access to the linux based OS for total control
- Customizable work space panes (up to 7) with weather, tools, and other widgets (not just shortcut icon's to apps)
- taking DVD video, clips
- Ease of file transfer with FTPServer running on phone
- Use phone as FTP client
- Easy SD Card file management, from anywhere, any PC (no iTunes required)
- interchangeable SD Card (great for loading high quality movies)
- 2.1 animated wallpaper
- Guitar tuner
- Voice based language translator, handy for my international customers
- smooth HD video on youtube over VzW 3G
- smooth and fluid GOOGLE STREET VIEW with turn-by-turn navigation, equally good as a hand held GPS

and more and more every day

I can't wait for Google Earth.

I picked up a MyTouch for the wife last night... been playing around with it, and I think I could hang up the G1 looks like the Nexus will be in my pocket before too long

the virtual keyboard is pretty damn decent, and the word suggestions make it faster than using the physical keypad on my G1 sometimes

if you send a million emails for work while in the field, I think the crackberry is still the way to go, but for just general internet tomfoolery, I much prefer the full screen phones, and I think I'm finally over feeling like I need a physical keypad

I think your a perfect fit for the nexus one then. Supposedly it will be out for VzW this spring too, but I'm deff. sticking with the Droid for a while.

Some have rooted and installed 2.1 on the G1, but the hardware just isn't there to keep the device from being sluggish. I like the G1, and its still very popular, especially for playing ROMS because of its generous keyboard layout.

yeah, I'll definitely hold onto it... I want to root it and play around with it some more... I'll feel more comfortable doing so when it isn't my only phone

I was going to get the nexus, but Tmobile pissed me off for the last time. So I have a droid now I might buy a nexus out of pocket down the road when they come out for Vz eventually.
