Compare the Nexus One vs. Palm Pre vs iPhone including cost to own

Now that Google’s Nexus One phone has been revealed, the question everyone is asking is how does it compare to the other current top smartphones on the market, most notably, iPhone and Motorola Droid? Moreover, is it worth switching to Nexus One from your current device?

The biggest difference is total cost of ownership, and Nexus One wins big there over iPhone and Droid because T-Mobile’s plans are less expensive than those offered by AT&T and Verizon, who carry the iPhone and Droid, respectively. But that comes with a caveat too — T-Mobile’s 3G coverage isn’t on par with that of Verizon, and even trails that of the much maligned AT&T.

    The processor is labeled as a little recent model number but it and also the GPU are most likely the same speed since the 3GS. The old Touch with the similar CPU and GPU as the 3G was faster. Besides having the clock speed turned up higher the Touch has much less software programs to run because it is not a phone. It ought to beat any iPhone to day in performance.

    I’ve had my Pre because shortly right after launch and am glad to find (as a result of this forum) that I can now set a ring tone on incoming text messages and can research by means of e-mails and such. Now is there any hope for an upcoming release in which I can lookup my calendar? Would make my employment very much much easier, locating dates of last appointments. No other complaints, except that yesterday I was in and out of Sprint service (not unusual). I consider I was roaming, and looked at my calendar. Almost everything within the calendar was just one hour earlier than what I had input. The clock was one particular hour early as nicely. I was scared to death–then, after we got back into Sprint support once again, every thing was normalized. Has this happened to anybody else?? Shopping forward to answers, but please recall, I’m no techie and speak English in lieu of technospeak.
