HTC Incredible, Verizon's substitute for the Google Nexus One

For a while there, we were told that a version of the Google Nexus One would be devised to work with the Verizon Wireless network. That made sense, since the two GSM versions of the Nexus One only worked with AT&T and T-Mobile. Well, as it turns out, Verizon isn't getting a Nexus One after all. That's not to say that Verizon isn't getting a snappy Android phone, however. In an official statement from Google, they said that they "won't be selling a Nexus One with Verizon," but they are encouraging customers to buy the Droid Incredible by HTC instead.

If the rumors of a CDMA-equipped iPhone destined for Verizon Wireless, why would Apple and AT&T be continuing the a relationship by working closely with Apple to rectify the network issues.

Verizon creating largest 4G LTE network, iPhone on the horizon?

lte.200

With the "there's a map for that" ad campaign, Verizon is proudly proclaiming that its 3G network offers much more coverage than AT&T's 3G network. The trouble with this comparison is that AT&T's network is typically faster than the Verizon equivalent. That might change very soon. It won't happen with the battle between Verizon's EVDO and AT&T's HSDPA, however. Instead, the battle is being taken to the fourth generation. Verizon aims to have both the largest and the fastest network in the nation when it launches its LTE network. That's 4G, folks.

Google Nexus One smartphone struggles

Chart Flurry

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.

Google Nexus One headed to Sprint

Google Nexus One phone headed for Sprint

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.
