Blow to Google: Verizon says NO to Nexus One

by Slikkster / April 26, 2010 12:58 PM PDT

So much for the Google "sell it ourselves" experiment, or so it would seem. Since Google decided to one-up everyone else selling Android phones by keeping the best available (at the time) all to themselves, competition has made them suffer for it. Verizon has decided the "Incredible" from HTC is a better Android device, and even though they originally agreed to support the Nexus, they are backing out.

I didn't think of that...

Good point, Shalin! I hadn't considered that possibility, thinking that it was really just Verizon wanting to have more control over the Nexus One than Google was willing, given Google's distribution model.
