We knew that the Nexus One was about to come to an end on the Google Store, but we never assumed that stock would run dry as soon as this. We have now had conformation from Google that their superphone is no longer available. However, there are still third-party vendors offering up this handset for a limited period.
Google will now make the Nexus One with Android 2.2 update available from Vodafone and also KT. If you do not mind waiting then you will eventually be able to purchase one from a listed number of developers. Engadget’s Chris Ziegler points out that if you were into buying in bulk, then you have had your day.
The Nexus One was not the best selling Android handset and did not offer the best in hardware features as the HTC EVO 4G, Droid Incredible and Motorola Droid X, but it still had that special something. One thing that will be missed is how Google made its Android updates available to the Nexus One first.
Google certainly made a mistake by trying to have more control over Android based handsets, they should have stuck to what they do best — develop the mobile OS that is taking the market by storm.
Will you miss the Nexus One once the handset totally disappears?
