The results of the smartphone sales race are in. Running the numbers and looking at the charts with Nexus One’s sales figures, things do look a little “slow” off the start for Google. But CEOEric Schmidt’s reports back in February show otherwise.
The Google HTC Nexus One has sold 135,000 units directly from Google since the phone was first launched. During this time period, Verizon sold 1.05 million Android phones while Apple continues to keep pace in the market by selling 1 million units of their original iPhone. The iPhone 3GS continued its market dominance by selling 1.6 million devices in just one week. Apple’s superstar has no reason to slow down and with a new revamped iPhone 4G on the horizon for its loyal customers, one can only assume a continued bright future.more →
Sprint today announced they will be a carrier of the Google Nexus One smartphone. T-Mobile was originally the only carrier to offer an “official” term plan for the Nexus phone, but after checking up on Google’s phone website T-Mobile’s offering is no longer available. A “Sorry, this item is temporarily out of stock.” on the $179 two year contract plan is nothing less than a coincidence. Sprint won’t be the new and only company to carry the Nexus One, yesterday’s announcement told us about Google’s plan to send the phone to AT&T and Rogers Wireless in Canada, but with sales slumping there’s not much of possibility for a shortage on supply.more →
It’s here Canada. Google’s Nexus One phone just got released for the Canadian market and US customers on AT&T. Previous Nexus One phones would only utilize 2G and EDGE network connectivity, not the best for your Android experience, but good enough. Now Google has announced a compatible 3G version, so T-Mobile USA is no longer the only one with a Nexus offering and Canadian Rogers Wireless customers can get on board.
The phone can be purchased from Google’s phone store for $529 USD, free shipping in the USA.more →
It may not be long before we see Google’s Android phone, dubbed the Nexus One, available on the Verizon Wireless network. If Google adds Verizon to the mix, you and I may get a competitive price – since T-Mobile will have to share their slice of the pie.
The rumor is that on March 23 the Nexus One will be availble to Verizon customers, making them the second U.S. wireless carrier to offer Google’s device. March 23 is coincidentally the first day of CTIA tradeshow in Las Vegas, coincidence, or not?more →

Put the rumors to rest. Google announced a custom designed Nexus One Desktop Dock. A sleek design to slip your Nexus into, immediately activating the Clock app giving quick access to your alarm setting, local weather, photos, and music. There’s even a dim option for night use.more →
As it turns out, it really may be in your best interest to pay the full unlocked and unsubsidized price for the Nexus One “Google Phone.” As you may recall, the Nexus One clocks in at $529 for full retail, but you can have that subsidized down to just $179 should you sign up for a qualifying contract with T-Mobile USA.
For most Americans, the subsidized route sounds more appealing, but it could come with a rather expensive penalty should you choose to cancel your T-Mobile service within the first 120 days.more →
One of the big hopes that people had about the upcoming “Google Phone” was that it was going to be substantially cheaper than any other equivalent smartphone on the market today. As it turns out, Google has dashed all of those hopes, because they are not going to sell the Nexus One at cost. Earlier […]more →
Some people have said that the official Google Phone will be pretty groundbreaking, whereas others say that it will be just another Android phone. Well, based on the video embedded below of the Nexus One, this smartphone will at least be different from an aesthetic standpoint. The user interface is a little different. There have […]more →
Earlier this week, we learned that the first official so-called “Google Phone” would be called the Nexus One. It would naturally be powered by Google Android and would not carry any obvious HTC branding whatsoever. Well, we just learned one other reason why we should care about this smartphone: it’s going to be cheap. Whereas […]more →
