Google Nexus one resurfaces on Canadian Mobilicity

nexus-one-mobilicity

Canadian budget wireless carrier Mobilicity today announced they will be “carrying” the Android-based Google Nexus One phone. We know Google took the Nexus One off the distribution line for wireless carriers around the world a few weeks ago, and Mobilicity being an unlocked, outright purchase resale provider of mobile phones leads me to believe they’ve just bought a crapload of Nexus Ones from Google and are simply reselling them to their network of customers.

They sold out awfully fast, especially for a handset that isn't exactly new anymore.

It was widely heralded as the first real "Google Phone" and now it will soon be laid out to pasture. If you were hoping to get your hands on the Google Nexus One smartphone, I highly suggest you do it very soon, because Google has placed its final order with HTC for the device.

It's not hard for a tek-savvy consumer or innovator to view him or herself as a next step in human evolution, a strictly informational animal, elevated above the physical constraints that have burdened simpler ancestors. And indeed there is something of a "next step" in evolution about Google Inc., which seems to be not only the world leader in online search, online advertising, and a rising force in productivity apps, but also a coming player in energy production, mobility, cooling technology that's also cool, and TV.
