kevorkian: So now that this Milestone has been discontinued and probably wont be getting an over the air update to 2.2... AND google still hasnt released turn by turn navigation for New Zealand. I wonder what Telecom is going to do.
I can't help but giggle at all of this. By the way, I freakin love my Nexus One. :P
So much changes in so little time....
Since my original post I too noted Motorola's end-of-life notification for the Droid/Milestone1. Then there was Motorola's non-commital to Android 2.2 upgrades on the device family. And then I discovered that the Milestone has implemented the signed bootloader (the original Droid didn't) making it a lot more difficult to modify.
After that I found an obscure piece in a NZ article online, where a Telecom spokesperson indicated that Milestone updates in NZ would *not* be available OTA (indicating to me that Telecom intend to modify the build and control updates themselves). That was the end of it for me...
Last week I ordered an XT compatible Nexus One from MobiCity. It arrived on Monday, and I'm loving it too :).
I showed my Nexus to a workmate yesterday morning, and by lunchtime he was down at the Vodafone store buying one :).
Incidentally, in case anyone didn't know, Vodafone are now selling Nexus Ones from their outlets at $999 outright, with the usual reduced prices for contracts. (they snuck that one in with no fanfare whatsoever!)
