"That is because ATT does not offer another descent smartphone"
I completely agree with you. I was using the HTC droid Eris from a friend and it totally make my iphone 3gs look like an antique. AT&T needs to step up and stop relying on the iphone.

Here's what Taylor Wimberly from Android and Me said in his article about Apple vs. HTC lawsuite:
"If you ask me, I think Google and HTC already delivered the first revenge nut-punch by releasing an unlocked Nexus One for AT&T (Apple’s BFF). Google could not reach a deal with AT&T (like they did with the other carriers), so they went went behind their back and released it anyways."
Guys, I would also welcome you to visit Nexus One forum's AT&T thread.

Hey guys, just an update.
I received my Nexus One with the 3g compatible bands. I have begun messing around with it, not major plans for it, YET. Just going to play around with the stock settings for a while. I was on WI-FI at home and it was blazing fast, as should be expected. I went to school today and brought my spiffy new N1. I go to George Mason University, which is 45 minutes from Washington DC. My college has a somewhat convoluted way to access their WI-FI, so I decided it was a good time to attempt using the 3G Network on AT&T! And.... boy.. was I amazeeeeeeeeeeed. I was expecting some slow/spotty coverage... but to be honest, it seemed to load as fast as it did when I was at home... and I am SURE it was on the 3G network, because it displayed 3G, and not my WIFI bars.
2 Days into the AT&T N1, and I am LOVING it. I also do NOT notice any hue discolorizations? It MIGHT just be the BGR's unit. Also, I read another reference from someone who owns both AT&T and a TMOBILE N1, and he says the screens look the same. Their is always going to be defective units, not everything is perfect, or else my 1 TB hard drive would actually have 1 TB of space on it =).
No aggression toward Guandalf at all. I have been watching the forums for years, and I have not started creating posts until recently, but Guandalf's posts have always been informative and heplful, for he is reporting to us valuable information! It is our job to take this information and dissect it!

I got my N1 today, did a speed test on 3G and got 923 down and 1323 up on 3G, web sites are faster, I have a better 3G web experience then I did on my iPhone(or it could all just be in my head). I love it. I was worried about battery so yesterday I ordered the 1600mah slim extended life batter but after using it for half a day I don't think that I would kill the battery before I went to bed any way, but hey it's always nice to have an extra battery. This device is amazing, I have it setup and I'm loving it.
for other N1 users, do you have a problem hitting the space bar while typing on the virtual keyboard? for some reason I miss it pretty regularly when I type. I do have to say that I love the voice transcription though, it really works well and my wife is jealous.
I'm very happy with my purchase and I have no regrets, any one on the fence I recommend taking the plunge. Also my screen appears normal, colors and all that are fine.

I don't think I can answer well enough for the virtual keyboard question, because this is my first non-physical keyboard phone, and to my knowledge, MOST of my problems when clicking/pressing buttons are due to my own newness to it. I usually, UNDERSHOOT when going to press/click a icon/key, and I see my FINGER tip, and the BOTTOM of my finger is obviously lower than my fingertip so I usually end up hitting buttons a little under where I am aiming. However, I am sure with time, I with get used to this adjustment. But when I slow down to type, to watch my fingers better, I have not experienced any problem hitting virtual keyboard. BUT I have noticed the haptic touch buttons, the search, home, menu, back, you need to press a little above them, because the BOTTOM of the pictures are right next to the edge, and I guess their are no sensors, at the border of the phone which is understandable. The screen ENCOMPASSES the whole dang thing....never had a mobile device with a screen this size, my old devices had decent screens, but usually had a lot of, dead space between the sides of the phone and the screen.
So far I have not had any of the problems that are festering in the google nexus one forums, but I have noticed, because of size of the screen, it is very easy to not notice that your hand holding the phone my inadvertently be touching part of the phone and messing up your other clicks, but you notice it fairly fast, when your clicks are not registering properly. You basically go "oh" and move your other hand a little bit and everything is OK.
I had a ZAGG INVISIBLESHIELD for my old phone, it was pretty good. It was not as INVISIBLE, as it name made it seem, but when it was on, you couldn't tell the difference. I ordered a ZAGG IS, for my N1, and I will report back on how it looks and if it affects the sensitivity once I get it.
