Will the Nexus One have iPhone success? More importantly why does everyone need to compare touch screen phones to the iPhone? It may because the iPhone was the first touch screen phone to the market that worked they way it was supposed to. Either way, the Nexus One looks interesting enough and has a few features which are denied to the iPhone.

The software on the Nexus One runs Android) has live wallpapers, which move around in the background with different shapes and combinations (seem a little distracting to me) has a number of different live wallpapers.
Scrolling through the apps has a clever 3D effect which makes it look very snazzy indeed.
