I kinda like the look of the Droid more than Nexus One.  Plus the physical keyboard is good.

I'm definately a fan of the Droid. Some of the extras like the dock atc are pretty cool. As per usual though, a new phone is now rumored that is the Nexus Two, or Motorola Shadow. It looks awesome in the pics I've seen, no word on specs though.

Rumoured specs are available at GSMarena, and mighty impressive indeed (not confirmed of course).

For myself I really like having a hardware QWERTY, but its too hard to go past the Snapdragon CPU and RAM situation in the Nexus (similar spec in my HD2, really makes the phone fly).

Right now the big difference is speed. The Nexus One has a 1GHz processor while the Droid Milestone has a 550MHz processor.....slightly faster than the HTC Magic. 

I guess if you want a sliding keyboard, then the Droid is for you if you want to buy a phone right now.

Or outside of the Android realm the N900, as a similarly specced QWERTY device not short on speed.
