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.
