For those of you who can’t wait any longer (than tomorrow) I present to you, the official Engadget Nexus One review. By far the best N1 review I’ve seen so far, it’s broken down into 10 handy categories so you can skip around if you like or take it all in at once. The categories are industrial design, internals, display, camera, telephony / data / earpiece and speaker, software, battery life, pricing and availability, then finished off with an insightful wrap up. I’m guessing a lot of people, especially the non Android fans, are going to be saying the same thing Engadget is once the N1 is out in full force,
“the Nexus One is at its core just another Android smartphone. It’s a particularly good one, don’t get us wrong — certainly up there with the best of its breed — but it’s not in any way the Earth-shattering, paradigm-skewing device the media and community cheerleaders have built it up to be.”
All that sounds pretty accurate, but until tomorrow morning, no one really knows for sure. I think it’s pretty important to keep in mind, things that could change the way we look at phones as consumers may not be in the hardware or physical design, but instead in the fine print. Everyone keep those fingers crossed in hopes that something big happens tomorrow, something that makes everyone think twice about what their next phone will be, and more importantly, how they will use it.
