The Android 2.1 interface really different from Android 2.0, but it looks smooth.
A hands-on report from Gizmodo noted that the phone is considerably faster than the Droid, and even beat the iPhone in multiple web page loading tests.
The screen is also noticeably better than that of the Droid, despite being the same size and resolution (this could be the rumored 1 GHz processor at work).
Multi-touch however was not evident in the browser or map.
In addition to the usual carrier subsidy route, Google will sell the Nexus One unlocked and unsubsidized (Rumored to be around $500-$550USD).
