      Yeah it is more about apps. than any thing else.. Thought Nexus One has a slightly superior h/w than iPhone 3GS and Nexus One is now dubbed as the Super Phone. But for a normal user what matters is Apps. iPhone is way ahead (100k + apps) than compare to Nexus One (15k to 20k apps).. as i have said earlier Nexus One is going to be a Droid killer and not an iPhone killer. And don’t forget Nexus One has “NO MULTI TOUCH!”
