Just got a new silicone case for my iPhone 3Gs. Yes, I still love my iPhone despite the arrival of my Google Nexus One recently. Who says you can’t love two smartphones at the same time?
If only there’s a Batman Nexus One silicone case, that would be awesome. You can grab the Star Wars Silicone Case for iPhone 3Gs at Powermac Megamall. It will cost you Php1,500 a poop.

So after a couple of days using the Google Nexus One, I guess it’s time to come up with a review. This post is actually a shorter version of the full review that I published here. This is more of an initial comment, view on the Nexus One that will most probably answer the queries of those who are planning to take the “hard route” of geting this precious Google phone despite the fact that it is not yet available for sale in other countries other than U.K., U.S., Hong Kong and Singapore.
So here goes, my quick review of the Google Nexus One in the Philippines:
Finally, after 10 days of waiting, my Google Nexus One arrived this afternoon via Johnny Air Cargo. In case you’re wondering how I was able to get it shipped via Johnny Air, the work-around was suggested by Yugatech. But instead of using MyUSMailbox, I used Johnny Air Cargo instead since I’ve already coursed several of my Amazon orders through them and I did not experience any hitches.
To cut the long story short, I got my Google Nexus One. And just like a child who just received a new toy, I was overwhelmed by the fact that I am now a proud owner of a Google Android Phone.
The Nexus One one works fine with my 3G postpaid sim. But I haven’t really tested the 3G functionality. I tried connecting to the Internet using 3G but kept on getting errors. Will have to take a closer look into this issue as this might be the same issue encountered by others who have the unlocked Google Nexus One.
But if you hooked it up to the Internet via 3G, the phone runs well. Android is definitely fast.
I’m loving the interface as well. The apps icon are smaller than the iPhone apps icons but both look sleek. Downloading apps from the Android Market was a breeze as well. I quickly downloaded and installed Twidroid app and it runs great.
So, far, I’m loving it. If the iPhone is like a high-end version of a Nokia fun mobile phone, the Google Nexus One is more like a Sony Ericsson. Geeks would definitely love it.
Will post a detailed review as soon as I get to play with the Google Nexus One in the next few days. In the meantime, here are some more photos.
While everybody else in the U.K, U.S., Hong Kong and Singapore are probably enjoying their Google Nexus One, installing Android apps perhaps – here I am still waiting for the arrival of my unit.
Fresh from the CES 2010, Sony unveiled its latest take on the pocketable video camcorder space, or shall we say Flip Camcorder dominion? The Sony Bloggie HD Video Cam would be perfect for bloggers.
Common now Google. Don’t be a spoil sport. Lets use get our dirty hands on your Nexus One phone, please. I’ve been waiting for your announcement since somebody said that you will be shipping it globally. And now, I just found out that you can only ship it to Singapore and Hong Kong? Two countries which are just a stone throw away from the Philippines.
Ah, don’t be so cruel Google. Don’t be like Apple, which continues to deprive me of the Apple Magic Mouse due to lack of supplies in the Philippine Apple Store.
I want your phone Google, and I want it as soon as possible.
Sorry folks. Was just too disappointed about this. In case you want to know why I wanted this phone so badly, check out my write-up here.
