Google wanted to change the game by launching the Nexus One and now it takes a step back, seeing that the phone didn’t sell that well. The search engine giant has just announced that it will stop selling handsets online and it’ll partner with carriers to sell the Nexus One in stores.
Apparently, the company’s official reason is that they want the customers to get some hands-on action with the phone before buying it. However, we suppose that partnering with carriers means that the handset’s price will go down, which is excellent for potential buyers.
There’s always that issue with Verizon and Sprint both refusing Nexus One, in favor of HTC Incredible and EVO 4G… What you should know, though is that the support for consumers who purchase Nexus One through the web store remains available.
