Google Nexus One starts to show up in more retail channels

May 26, 2010, By Thomas Antony

Google’s venture into the smartphone hardware business got off to a rather slow start when they released the Nexus One smartphone through their website. The phone was being sold exclusively through their online store either unlocked or on a contract from T-Mobile. Now the Nexus One is starting to show up in more and more retail channels.

The earlier lackluster performance in sales was partly due to people not being able to take the phone in their hands and look it over before committing to the buy. Google aims to resolve this problem by pushing out the device into more retail channels.

The Nexus One smartphone has also shown up in the online store for T-Mobile’s affiliate, iwireless. They are offering it as their flagship debice for $300 after a $350 discount and $50 mail-in-rebate.

Google’s Nexus One site is also eventually going to showcase other Android devices as well. In a precursor to this, Verizon and Sprint customers visi9ting the site are being reminded of the Droid Incredible and the HTC Evo 4G as plans for a CDMA Nexus One were dropped recently.
