Two years ago today I received my HTC Nexus One by Google. I've used it every day since. It is a great device. Mine is warn but still going strong.
I ordered the phone site unseen over the web. No wireless carrier to deal with. It was a great experience. Too bad Google closed their store a few months later.
Since January 15, 2010 I have:
- Listened to approximately 1000 hours of podcasts
- Listened to approximately 1000 hours of music
- Logged 283 jogging tracks spanning 1,126 miles
- Had over 1400 text message conversations
- Snapped 100s of photos
- Traveled over 50,000 (I'm skeptical of this stat from Google Latitude)
- Purchased music
- Watched videos
- Scheduled appointments
- Sent and received thousands of email messages
- Surfed the web
- Read a couple of books
- Sent out dozens of crap alerts
- Edited documents
- Recorded audio
- Tuned guitars
- Navigated to new destinations
- Checked sports scores
- Analyzed networks
- Tweeted and dented 100s of microblog messages
- Dropped it many times
- Broken the glass twice. HTC service rocks
- Gotten caught in the rain with it
- Oh yeah, I almost forgot... I've made and received a few phone calls
The only issue I've had with the Nexus One is low internal storage. This requires me to do a little more app management than I would prefer but it is no big deal.
If I had to do it all over again I would not change a thing. The Nexus One may be the most useful devices I've ever owned!
