Buying a Google Nexus One Unlocked is a Terrible Experience – Fixing It is Easy

TweetI have had my Google Nexus One for about a day. And I’m getting ready to box it up and send it back to them. It’s not because I don’t like the device – it’s kind of wonky in terms of UI, especially if you’re an iPhone user, but it’s still a very good device […]
