Nexus One webstore to shut down anyday now; Google phone also available as dev phone
Nexus One web store is nearing its end. Google today announced in a blog post that is has received the last shipment of devices to be sold from the store, after that the web store will be closed.
So hurry up, if you want to buy the device. Another important thing that Google announced was the availability of Nexus One as the developer phone. So from now, Registered Android developers can buy the device from Android Market itself.
From the Blog Post:
Earlier this year, we announced that we will be closing the Nexus One web store. This week we received our last shipment of Nexus One phones. Once we sell these devices, the Nexus One will no longer be available online from Google. Customer support will still be available for current Nexus One customers. And Nexus One will continue to be sold by partners including Vodafone in Europe, KT in Korea, and possibly others based on local market conditions.
To ensure our developers have access to a phone with the latest Android OS, Google will be offering the Nexus One through a partner for sale to registered developers. Visit the Android Market Publisher site and log into your developer account to purchase a Nexus One.
