    The photos you took are very sharp and clear

    I’m loving my Motorola Droid and it sounds very similar to your N1. Sweet phones!

    Hi son,
    Very good details on your review. Looking forward to looking over the phone when you come out here this summer. What bluetooth are you using. It was kind of cutting in and out when we talked this week. Of course with your cold it may have been the operator that was cutting out. 8^)

    Hope you’re getting the receiver set up OK. I hooked my gear up last night and enjoyed a Blu-ray movie for the first time in almost a month. Feel all better now. The curtains made a tremendous difference in the room. I had the U2 concert “Zoo TV” blasting away and couldn’t even hear it from the sidewalk. I’m a very happy camper now.

    See ya soon.

      Unfortunately I dropped the Nexus at work, it fell out of my pocket as I was throwing something up to the second story window of our warehouse and fell about 5 feet to the concrete, the top of the phone where the power button is hit the pavement. Fortunately there was no electrical/electronic damage to it, the case split a little and got a dent. I just closed it back up and it’s good-to-go again.

      I’m using a Jawbone bluetooth headset. I think when we talked I was using the normal Nexus mic in a spotty reception area. I only wear the bluetooth when I am driving or working on a project.

      I’m going to being setting up the receiver this weekend. I only have 2 older but OK speakers at the moment due to the draw from my FPV project I’ve been working on it will be a month or two before I can get the rest of the surround speakers, then I can watch movies in style. I was thinking I could mount one or more subs in the basement between joists and it vent them up through the floor. Very strong physical coupling to the structure, and could just panel in the joist with thick plywood to resize the box and build baffles, etc. 😀 I have an old speaker design book around here somewhere with all the math in it.

    I’ve had my N1 for several weeks now and have come to realize that this phone is not a good business phone. It has no native sync with Outhouse and the keyboard is, frankly, crap. I’m not a huge MS fan but we use Outhouse at work and I don’t like having my contact data, calendar, etc. on Google’s servers. DO NOT buy this phone if you’re looking for a good business smartphone.

    I found the GPS to be somewhat useful but very slow when away from a city. Nokia has them beat on this score.

    I’m waiting for the N8 from Nokia to come out and then I’ll give this phone to one of the kids. They still like toy phones.

      I think it’s an evolving platform like anything, though I’m pretty happy with the phone. I have a business provided blackberry which I use for work, and the N1 is my personal phone. I keep work and business separate so it’s not a big deal for me. I find the keyboard isn’t any worse than an iPhone or touch screen blackberry, but if you have callouses on your fingers it may not be super accurate 😉
