Google has shut down their web store and stopped the sale of their Nexus One Android phone. They ordered one last batch of from HTC, and now that supply has been depleted. That’s right. Google has completely sold out of the Nexus One. We knew that this was going to be the last batch to be made directly available from Google, but we didn’t know that interest in the Nexus One would be quite this high.

After stock from this shipment is depleted Google will no longer be selling the Nexus One through its official online store. Nada. No more. Kaput. You have plenty of other options in the Android realm, like the HTC Droid Incredible, but the Nexus One holds a special place in cell phone history.

Nexus One photo gallery application demo similar in feel to Gingerbread release

Late last week, we heard about the upcoming HTC Vision and how it would come loaded with Google Android Gingerbread right out of the box. Well, we have now learned a little more about this Gingerbread.

One of the bigger surprises coming out of the rumor mill is that it will actually require devices to have at least a 1GHz processor as part of its minimum requirements. If that’s the case, the dual-core 800MHz Vision may not technically reach that benchmark.

iPhone 4, Google's next-phone, HTC EVO

With all the iPhone 4 glitz and glamour out there, some other options may get left behind. The HTC Droid Incredible which we looked at just a few weeks back is quite the challenger, but the EVO seems to be a more advanced offering from HTC. There’s also the possibility of a new Google phone, perhaps a Nexus 2, coming to combat the iPhone 4. So what gives you that charged and static feeling?
