It was good while it lasted Google, it was good while it lasted. Oh wait, I hope you didn’t think I was saying Google will stop selling the Nexus One, they’re just not going to sell it online anymore. Andy Rubin put up a post today on the Official Google Blog saying that Google will no long carry the Nexus One online, and will instead move the handset into retail outlets as soon as possible. He goes on to say stuff like “While the global adoption of the Android platform has exceeded our expectations, the web store has not”, and “many customers like a hands-on experience before buying a phone”, but we already knew that. So what’s the future of Google.com/phone hold in store? Apparently Google is going to use the site to promote Androids of all make and model. I wish Google hadn’t given up so soon on this idea, but then again… maybe all those naysayers and analysts calling Google out on this decision were right all along. I’d love to see the Nexus find it’s way into more peoples hands, and this may be the best/only way to do it. You can read the entire post at the Via link. I hate to admit this, but if the Nexus One happened to land in a T-Mobile store near me, I would probably grab one over a Galaxy S, just sayin’.
