what a stupid comment to say, this hands on was as informative as possible and he set his point across well and effectively and spoke audibly and clearly.

Went to set buy to play with one today. I thought it would be a potential upgrade to my nexus 1 since it's almost a year old. Nah. It's basically a galaxy s with a curved screen and gingerbread. My nexus will soon have gingerbread which from a consumer POV Is very underwhelming. It makes it more green and makes the keyboard slightly better. Sure VoIP through sip is great but not exclusive to this handset. And the NFC isn't going to be widely used for a while, then again the NFC chip on this phone is read only. So that means it's not even capable of payments and the other good stuff it's known for. Looks like i'll be trading in my nexus 1 for a sanding focus next month. This phone was a bit of a let down.

Took a look at this phone at BB yesterday. I was underwhelmed by the plastic case. My Nexus One feels sturdier and it's taken a couple of knocks with no problems. Not sure the S would. On the other hand, the display on the S is NOT a let down. Side-by-side with my N1, the S is like night and day. And my N1 is far better than the non-OLED displays I've seen out there in newer phones like the EVO. The content of the S display is also better looking, which is hard to admit. Having the graphics processor has got to make it perform better.
So I'm not as down on the S as others. I seriously have to consider the upgrade - and maybe get a really good case to protect it.
