Legal Today's "the day after". The day after Apple started a patent war with HTC and Google. Today, we have statements from both HTC and Google, and a number of other people have weighed in as well as to the possible ramifications of Apple's lawsuit.

They sell on coolness factor alone.

If you mean that I don't believe you have ever tried an iPhone.

I really like android though, but I can't say that nexus one is a good looking phone.

Hmm, form over function. Doesn't this just confirm what TemporalBeing said? If you want to call it style, fashion, coolness, whatever, it is the subjective liking of the exterior. It doesn't say anything about the capabilities.

It does not confirm what he said. The nexus one could have looked a whole lot better without loosing any function.

I am an engineer myself but dislike the fact that a whole lot of people in my category like to choose things that often are worse in function just because they don't want anything that is considered cool or have a good design. Sometimes it's actually possible to have both form and function, believe me.
