Google’s new phone – The Nexus One
I had the pleasure of using one of Google’s new Nexus phones, which is definitely designed to be the iPhone killer,
What I loved:
1. The display is huge and the resolution is unmatched
2. Very slim and much more visually appealing than the Droid
3. The user interface is very similar to the iPhone
What I didn’t love:
1. It didn’t seem as responsive as an iPhone, when clicking around
2. There is still a bug with Exchange integration
Let me break the technical side down; The Droid, The Nexus One and some HTC phones all run an operating system called Android. Many call their phone the Android, but that is really the operating system on the phone.
I definitely think Google’s newest venture is going in the right direction. However, before you race to the store and purchase any Android based phone, I would urge you to wait. They still don’t integrate as tightly with Exchange as they should, which could lead to some expensive support bills. This issue is supposed to be resolved in later updates, but with the vast majority of corporations running Microsoft Exchange I personally think it should have been addressed from the beginning.
If your office is running Microsoft Exchange, the most valuable question to ask when purchasing a phone is “How well does it integrate with Microsoft Exchange?”
