The writing was on the wall when the Nexus One failed to materialize with both Verizon Wireless and Sprint and today, Google confirmed what the tech world had suspected — its online model for handset sales has failed. In a blog post, Google announced that it is working with upcoming global partners to bring the Nexus One to retail channels. Once the handset is firmly established with a solid brick and mortar presence, Google will halt all online handset sales. Its current website will be used to showcase and not sell current Android offerings. Anyone disappointed that you will have to go through your carrier to snag a Nexus One?
