The Nexus One: Not For Pockets?

The Nexus One: Not For Pockets?

Apparently, one of the CNET guys has already cracked the screen of his Nexus One. This caused a massive scar and a hideous purple shade to overtake the once glorious AMOLED screen. CNET took the phone to HTC support, who told them it could have cracked when sat down-on while wearing a pair of tight-fitting jeans.

“People sometimes forget that they don't go in pockets,” said HTC. Excuse me? A smartphone that doesn't go in pockets?

I've had my Nexus One since January, with no issues whatsoever yet. If my screen cracks due to deadly pocket wear, at least I know HTC will fix it for around 180 quid. Fantastic. It's great to know that HTC's willing to fix my phone for more than it cost me to buy if normal pocket wear-and-tear breaks it. That's reassuring.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
