What many people have been asking is whether the Google Nexus One is the best Android phone or whether the much advertised Droid might be a better choice.
Well since I own both phones I’ve taken a few minutes this morning to write up a pros and cons comparison between the two.
You can read my Google Nexus One vs Droid Pros and Cons on my gadget blog for the full details.
In a nutshell I like everything about the Google Nexus One – especially the speed. If you’re comfortable using T-Mobile as the carrier (which is the only carrier supporting the phone for now though Verizon is slated to provide service come Spring 2010) and if you’re a heavy Gmail user (which I am) then you’ll love Android and I think the Google Nexus One.
Based on my repeatedly poor experiences with the Droid voice quality – I don’t recommend you purchase a Droid.
If however you’re company is stoic in its use of Microsoft Exchange Server or you are not on Gmail (and don’t plan to be) then I think either the BlackBerry (for heavy emailers) or iPhone (for those with light email needs but strong desire for third party applications and music/video) are better choices.
