I expected HTC to be the maker. I love my N1 and it would not be the same if another company makes an N2. All the new features Samsung Vibrant and more. Let see it HTC you can do it and better.!!!!!

I'm an HTC guy myself.. but Sammy has been real good about its homework - they are exclusive to Super AMOLED, and their new upcoming Mali Cores (Samsung the only company ARM named so far) are very tasty.

So I dunno. Samsung may be beating HTC in the near future technology-wise.

Oh, and both my parents have Galaxy S, it's a very solid phone, and screen is way better than on my N1 (true multitouch, better GPU, etc). So stop hatin' and smell the flowers.

Personally, I'd like to see Google focusing on and driving standard hardware interfaces.

You can walk into any electronics store and find endless devices that hook up to that fruit phone, from car stereos, hi-fi docks, TV docs, etc. They are also relatively cheap because they are mass produced (one common interface).

For the Nexus there's... not much. I can hook it up to my car, but I can't browse tracks from the car, can't play video, etc. Some other Androids may be better supported, but still nothing like the fruit phone gadgets that you can get pretty much anywhere...

For me, this is where I would like Google to go with hardware. ONE STANDARD CONNECTION.

Both my cars have USB hook-up, but it doesn't work well. It plays mp3s, but not movies. It lists tracks by the file name, not mp3 tags. Only sorts by folder, not by artist, or genre, or album, etc.

I have a fruit pod interface that works great, and gives me full access and control.

My AV receiver has a fruit interface, but not USB. My clock radio at work, boombox, night stand clock, all support the iPod, but none have USB. I have a studio quality mic that turns my iPod into a high quality digital recorder. I hook my iPod up to the TVs in hotel rooms when I travel...

Also, not all Androids have mUSB, so switching phones may mean new chargers, new USB cables, etc...

There still isn't too many mUSB gadgets out there, either, but maybe it would get more support if it was adopted across the board...

Every android phone? No. Most? Yep. (HTC phones, Moto Droids, Samsung, ect..)
Blame the accessory manufactures then or just buy boomboxes, night stands, car radios that work with Bluetooth.

Forcing every manufacturer that makes an android device to use some kind of proprietary connection isn't going to happen.

Actually it more or less is from now on, µUSB is the industry standard for phone charging.

Apple will most likely be ignoring it though.

Imagine if you could send in your n1 to Google and they upgrade the internals... refurbish the exterior and send it back.

The EC gave the cell phone manufacturers a little nudge a while ago regarding the plethora of choices in cell phone charging plugs. Too many chargers going to the garbage every time you changed cell phones. I don't know where Apple stands in all this

There is nothing wrong with Samsung Galaxy, I have purchased 2 of the vibrants. One for my son and the other for my girl friend. It looks simlair to the Iphone and I dislike the Iphone. If the body had a different look I would have purchase one for myself. Everyone has their own taste and the Galaxy is not my cup of tea. Not a hater
