Google Nexus Two: Claims of Failure Pre-Release?

By Alan Ng - Nov 5, 2010

While the majority of Android users are naturally getting very excited on the prospect of Google announcing and unveiling the Nexus Two smartphone, one article we’ve read has stated that consumers shouldn’t get their hopes up about it.

According to Accurast, smartphone owners shouldn’t get too excited about the possibility of the Nexus Two, since they believe that the original Nexus One ‘failed’ in their opinion. Here is a portion of their article for your reference:

”Considering that the Nexus One did not fare too well, falling spectacularly short of Google’s promise to revolutionise the mobile phone buying process, it would come as quite a surprise that Google might even consider going down the same route again.”

We all know that Google halted sales of the Nexus One online due to their sales model and probably the only real failure, was their lack of marketing for the phone. The actual hardware and functionality of the device itself was first class, and I’m sure Android owners will agree that the Nexus One still remains one of the best handsets on the market for current owners.

Make no mistake about it, if a Nexus Two does become a reality, it will be a huge seller for sure. Accurast’s early claims of failure are a bit unfair we’d say. Check out their article through the link and let us know your thoughts on this.

    If they'd just skip the US and release it properly in Europe, or Norway, where we're used to buy phones as we please and are not locked to a carrier, it would sell good.

    The Nexus One succeeded in driving innovation (and therefore Android) forward, which is what Google wanted more than anything. In addition to great hardware specs, owning a Nexus One also means getting the latest and greatest Android releases before everybody else (I've enjoyed Froyo since mid-May), and without any "crapware" on top. That's why if/when the Nexus Two comes to light, I'll be among the first to buy it!

    N1 is the best…till date…until N2 takes over the crown…iphones and Droids don't come close to it…if U have really used the full functionality of N1 & Android OS updates…period.
