Nexus S thoughts

Overall, if I were to get an Android phone, it would be this. Nice clean install of Android, no proprietary layers added by a carrier.

And then there's this:

Pretty interesting.

My main thing: what do you all think it would be like playing games on the curved screen of the device? (Designed for comfort during phone use.)

Not sure I'd like--for example--slicing fruit on a slightly concaved screen. I think it may feel a little awkward.

Just find it interesting because Google explicitly has mentioned how the Nexus S will be great for games. Curved screen keeps tripping me out... really can't wait to get my hands on one.

Of course you can't, tool.

Post was meant for lounge, my apologies.

What I find interesting is that their billing the curvature of the screen as a feature to aid comfort during phone calls while simultaneously touting the improved capabilities for gaming.

Seems to me that it could be awkward for gaming. Just my opinion.

And no luck is needed. Would never fully switch to Android. Would only get one to mess around with, as I enjoy linux.
