The developers choice of phones for sure. The Google Nexus One has been the first Android device to receive OTA's (Over The Air Updates) first. In fact the phone received Froyo Android 2.2 well before any other phone.
Don't think the N1 is only for developer though. The Nexus One is a power house that any user can put personal optimization to work. Use multiple screens for your personal life, work life, night life, travel or whatever you can imagine.
A lot has been said since Google closed the Store for the Google Phone. They have come out and stated the phone has done its job, and it has. That doesn't mean The N1 has out lived its usefulness though. The Nexus One has just as much to offer as any other Android Phone and will always be Googles first born.
