  1. This is the real I-phone in the Android Market. If/When rooted, no AT&T malware crap, and can get updates directly from Google, this is not a bad deal. Some how, in many ways, Google Nexus phones out performs other Android phones even with the last year processor. I hope At&t don’t screw this up.

  2. I would have renewed my contract to get this phone if it had come to at&t two months ago, instead I bought an Inspire off contract. Still kind of tempted to cash in and get it.
