I think this is a game-changer. 16GB will be enough for most people and those that need more can spend more on a Galaxy S3, One X, One X+ or blow the wad on an iPhone5. For the price, and for the huge advantage of being a Nexus phone with fast updates, this should be a consideration even for those who's phone is more than 6 months old. Most people will still be able to sell their current phone for the majority of the price of this one, if not more - it seems like a no-brainer to upgrade and get a premium device for peanuts.
I am at a total loss in knowing why Google is even bothering with this phone since, unless you happen to be one in about 250,000 people, actually being able to purchase the unit in Europe is impossible or, so it seems to me. I,ve tried the USA way with the same results. It was to be on sale from 17.00 PST to-day and guess what? At that hour here on Tenerife, some 8 or 9 hours early, the site is showing both models sold out! Just what is the point? By the time it becomes available no doubt the good old Yanks will be getting their hands on the next issue! And people, including me, castigate Apple for their sales techniques.
I have used a nexus one since they first came out, always reliable, great signal grabber without the problems that seem to plague the iPhones, it does what it say on the tin - great phone. Have always found that the Andriod approach gives a much more intuitive set up than the iPhone, so will update to this soon. Just a shame that they have gone the Apple route and not used replaceable batteries and removed the add on cards.
The navigation app works beautifully as do all the apps!
