Nexus One sold out forever in Google’s store
Can’t say we didn’t warn you that Google only had a final batch of Nexus Ones left to sell in its special online store.
No one anticipated it will sell out so fast though. Perhaps all the media attention that this last shipment got persuaded a lot of people who used to be undecided to go and order one from Google.
One way or the other, it’s officially sold out. And since Google has made it clear that they’re not going to sell any more, if you still want a Nexus One you have to turn to Vodafone, who still sell it in some European markets, or KT Telecom in South Korea. Or, you know, eBay.
This marks the official end of Google’s phone selling experiment, that arrived with great fanfare and was said to revolutionize phone sales in America. That it didn’t do, however some of the goals Google say they had for the Nexus one, such as pushing hardware manufacturers to include bigger screens and faster processors in their products, seem to have been achieved.
From now on, you’ll have to rely exclusively on the HTCs, Motorolas, Samsungs and LGs of the world to get your Android fix. Which, if you’re the type to crave the latest OS updates as they’re released, might not be the best of things.
