HTC Nexus One: How Incredible Android Is?

By Peter Chubb - Mar 25, 2010

The Nexus One did not get off to the flying start that Google had hoped – so not the iPhone killer as some were suggesting. However, the Android is still seen as a success in spite of poor sales – which shows how incredible Android is.

Sales have been as low as 135,000 in three months; this is according to Peter Chou, the HTC chief. However in the interview with Forbes, Chou seems to treat the Nexus One as a halo” phone – as it will be able to generate more business to the handset because of its profile.

The HTC chief made a point of stating that the Nexus One was the first handset to run Android OS 2.1, and the second to come packed with the popular Google Maps Navigation software.

Electronista knows that HTC cannot rely solely on one high-end smartphone – this is evident with the recent unveiling of the Desire and the EVO Sprint 4G – see full specs – the first 4G handset on the Sprint network.

Do you agree that the Nexus One is a truly incredible smartphone?

    Uhhh there's no wonder why it hasn't even sold 200,000 units….A. It must be purchased online, and its hella expensive. B. the only Carrier available for the first three months was T-mobile…LAME. C. Its STILL not available to Verizon. There's no doubt in my mind that this phone, or any of the new Android phones for that matter, are better than the iphag *cough* excuse me "iphone"… Had this phone come out in January for Verizon in stores as well as online it would have exploded…However Verizon undoubtedly realized they wouldn't sell anymore Droids if they had the Nexus which is why we are still waiting…..and waiting….All that being said I think I may end up going with the Incredible, the only downside being the lack of direct updates from google…

    The Nexus One sounds like a great phone. Its problem is a marketing issue. Consumers still want to touch and feel a phone before they buy it. Not having the phone available in stores for at least demonstrations is killing sales.

    The rumors and pent-up interest in the HTC Incredible is a sure sign that consumers still want to touch a phone before they buy it. The rumor that the HTC Incredible is Verizon’s version of the Nexus One and that it will not be available in stores is depressing. People are waiting for a strong alternative to the iPhone. There are many that will never use AT&T, no matter how great the handset is. Can Verizon and Google get their act together and release a real phone (Nexus One or the Incredible) in a standard distribution channel (stores) that consumers are used to?
