      Nexus One is still a very new handset here but the ads aren't there to support / promote it

      I believe it will do better. I am AT&T user and I am a iPhone user. I am seriously considering to purchase a unlocked version now that it is compatible with AT&T 3g network. But I am waiting to see what apple does on the next version iPhone.
