Default 9700 v Nexus One v Droid

Please Login to Remove!

OK the Nexus One just came out and it's basically a GSM version of the 'Droid. Smaller and rounder form factor than the droid (most GSM phones are smaller 'cause of the the technology anyway) but pretty much running the same OS (by google aka the Android OS) as the droid.

I see it as Droid for Europe since most of Europe is using the GSM technology (here Tmobile and AT&T are GSM) and thus can't use the 'Droid (the droid uses the CDMA technology).

In the USA it has the T-mobile 3G bands and the european 3G bands but NOT the AT&T 3G bands...so Verizon and T-mobile are the only real Android users in the USA right NOW but I think they are trying to combat the Iphone (which AT&T has).

How does the BB 9700 stack against basically the Android 2.1 operating system. Both Android phone are similar...so it's really comparing the OS of the two phones (BB and Google Android OS).
