Nexus and Me.

I am a recovering symbian user. I introduced myself to the smartphones by purchasing a Nokia 5800 XpressMusic, a device which runs the Symbian S60 V5 touch-screen operating system.

I spent a year with the 5800, broke one, drowned one and eventually came to the conclusion that Symbian was the wrong OS for me.
When Google announced the NexusOne, I resisted as best I could. But when NexusOne News posted this article:
My resolve broke down.
I hit buy, and relations in the U.S. forwarded me the device.
A week ago I received my NexusOne, and I have used it exclusively since then.

In my next few posts I will stack the 5800 and the Nexus against one another and tell you about my experiences with them.
