  • I want to replace my iphone 3G...

    ..with the Nexus One. It has just been released with a radio that supports AT&T's 3G network.

    Problem is, AT&T is not subsidizing it. With tax/shipping it comes to $575. I am elegible for upgrade iPhone pricing and don't have a problem extending for another 2 years. So what I was thinking is buy a new 3GS for $200, then sell it. I checked ebay tonight, and it looks like nib 16 gig phones are fetching $500. So that'd put my total out of pocket at under $300.

    Anybody here looking to buy a brand new iPhone 3GS? :D

          There isnt really any new info, other than past precedent that we'll have a new phone this summer. And I bet it will be great.

          As much as I like apple, their restrictive nature is slowing the device's natural progress and I don't think the new iphone will offer much over and above the Nexus One. It's a serious piece of hardware.

            It better compete with the HTC HD2 that for sure. I will say this thou, the interface is still the best on the iPhone but the screen resolution is not keeping up to the new screens. I have played around with a few android and the interface is clunky. But the new HTC HD2 is very promising.

                I can't believe you are getting rid of your iPhone Jason. I bet six months after getting rid of it you go out and buy another one. :D

                  I have a friend that go out and gets a few of the androids versions just to go back to the iPhone because he prefers how it works.

                    When is your contract up? Just asking, because maybe then you could switch to a carrier that does subsidize the Nexus One.

                    Should be out on Verizon soon.

                    Personally AT&T isn't an option for me, as much as AT&T likes to bash Verizon for their "maps" Verizon is right, AT&T just doesn't have the coverage that Verizon does, and that is why AT&T is a no go for me personally. (Read: AT&T coverage is crap where I live)

                      Why the Nexus One? I admit I haven't looked at it that much.

                        IMO, and I know I am not the OP but....

                        I want one because I love the Andriod OS, its more "Open" and the Nexus one has nearly twice the processing speed of(nearly) any competitor and twice the RAM as well.

                            Well, I'm getting tired of some things on the iphone. One of the biggest problems is how it can't do basic multitasking. If I'm in an app or safari then I get a text....bigtime pita. I'm a little miffed about Apple rejecting Google Voice...basically because they don't play nice anymore. Google Voice is all but unusable right now on the iphone. No tethering is also pissing me off, but that's largely due to AT&T and the influence they exert over Apple.

                            I'm still just a little undecided...part of me wants to wait and see what happens this summer. I'm sure there will be some performance updates to catch up with the N1, but I don't have faith that Apple will address their lack of multitasking...at least not in this release. And they will still be stubborn about allowing a google voice app (that every other smart phone has) And I'm doubtful that the new iphone's performance specs will actually surpass those of the N1.

                              I've just been learning about the HTC EVO from Sprint. First 4G phone. It won't be available until "summer" and is, thus, unproved, but it sound very interesting. There are rumors of pricing from $99 to $199 after discounts. It remains to be seen.
