Hi There, the Desire Z has a weaker CPU and it cost more and probably wont be able to run Gingerbread.

I would go for the Nexus One, as already stated the Z has a slower processor and Ive seen one in the shops and Im not convinced that the hinge on the keyboard is very sturdy.
The Nexus One on the other hand is the Grandad of the Desire family and its specs still hold strong. Like you I picked my Nexus One up for a good price and in great condition and by doing this Im not tied into a new contract.
I got the HTC Desire when it was released and was very impressed with it but sadly gave it up for an iPhone 4, a few months back. Oh the fool I was, I have since seen the light and returned to Android with the Nexus One, in my honest opinion the superior phone.
I hope this helps you decide on which to go for.
I would also look around a bit more, I got my Nexus One for £270.
Guys, please check your facts before you post.
Desire Z's 2nd gen CPU is only clocked at a lower speed than Nexus one and the old Desire. It's still a lot faster than people think and it has the newer GPU (Adreno 205, same as Desire HD).
The Z posts a bit higher score in quadrant than the old desire with its 1Ghz CPU with a score of about 1500.
I ran the test last night.
And as for the Gingerbread rumor, it's just that, a rumor. Think about it, why on earth and how on earth would it be limited by Clock Speed alone? Retarded rumor.
I'd go for the Z, as i have. Haven't got mine yet, but had a friends device for a few days to play around with. Solid phone, absolutely. And a direct upgrade from Nexus one.
