Google Nexus One smartphone now being made available through more retail channels

May 26, 2010, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Google is now distributing its Nexus One smartphone through more retail channels including the online store for iwireless, which is an affiliate of mobile carrier T-Mobile. The Nexus One online store will stop selling the device and will feature more Android-based phones on the site.

This new strategy by Google was earlier hinted by the company. It will now include more third party retailers in its strategy as Nexus One was suffering from slow sales due to its availability on its own website that did not allow hands-on sampling of the smartphone for consumers.

Google’s online store was facing a lack of orders for the Nexus One and the new strategy aims to increase the retail base for the device.

 Meanwhile, the Google phone site has already started reminding Verizon customers about the Droid Incredible phone and Sprint users about the HTC Evo 4G smartphone, both being devices that run on Android OS. It also shows the Nexus One as being available through T-Mobile at a subsidized price while it shows the Nexus One from AT&T as no longer in stock.

 The iwireless site lists Nexus One as being available for a price of $300, after a discount of $300 and a mail-in rebate of $50.
