Nexus One Phone and Droid

Nexus One vs Droid

Here’s a photo I took over my holiday break. I ran into a friend/Google Employee who had the lovely Nexus One. The Nexus One is on the left, and the Droid is on the right side.

The major differences are:

  • Nexus One had a newer version of Android OS which displays the photo/video galleries much nicer, smoother transitions, and better widgets than the Droid
  • Hardware-wise, Nexus One doesn’t have a slide-out keyboard.
  • Nexus One is only available on the T-Mobile network now, unless you buy an unlocked phone, whereas the Droid is on Verizon.
  • The Nexus One is much lighter.

For more information about Google’s Nexus One phone, see their official website and check out for more information about the Droid..

I personally think both phones are very nice if you are comfortable with the Android OS. The preferred phone carrier would be the deciding factor for the two phones. Both come with the Google Maps Navigation system, so that alone is worth getting either phones. If you like the Nexus One, Verizon will get it in the Spring. If you want it now, go with T-mobile or buy an unlocked phone. ;)

Google Maps Navigation on Droid

Half of my day consisted of reading your tweets and reviewing apps and gadgets. It’s been quite productive. :) Pictured above is the Motorola Droid, running on the 2.0.1, and the free Google Maps Navigation service. This service alone is worth getting the phone. The turn-by-turn voice navigation is quite awesome. :) Stay tuned, a full review of the Droid to come soon!

Qik Expands on Windows Mobile

I really enjoyed using my Nokia N95 trial phone. After sending it back, the feature I missed the most was the camera and being able to use Qik. Relearning how to use my T-mobile Shadow was hard, even though it had significantly less features than the Nokia N95.

But just my luck, TechCrunch announced today that Qik is expanding to Windows Mobile Platform! I don’t know if it’ll work on my phone, but it would be very nice to see my friends start using Qik!

Nokia N95 8GB

I got a lovely surprise today! My Nokia N95 8GB arrived this morning. I wasn’t even expecting it to arrive until next month. And I can’t seem to get the smile off my face today!

So here’s the cute little thing.

I’ve always liked Nokia phones, ever since I got my first one. It seems to be the only one where the battery lasts at least 3 days without charging. I have had other phones whose batteries stop working after a few hours! I changed phones a few months ago and was disappointed that Nokia Smartphones weren’t available with my carrier.
