    The obvious answer is NO. Based on Nexus One’s sales when it launched, it’s not even close to how well the iphone did, and you don’t really see iphone users dumping their iphones for the Nexus One either. The iphone is really ahead in the game, and it would take a revolutionary device to overtake it, which none of these devices that came out seem to be. All they’te doing is mimicking the iphone and waiting on what’s next with the iphone.
