Google Receives Last Shipment of Nexus One Smartphones

Jul 16, 2010

After this batch, the smartphone will not be available online to users.

Earlier this year Google announced that they would be terminating direct sale of the Nexus One through their online store. Today, via the official Nexus One blog, it was announced that the final shipment of phones for consumers had arrived. To be clear, this announcement doesn't mean the end of the Nexus One, but rather the end of Google's buy direct initiative, which allowed consumers to purchase a Nexus One unlocked or on contract directly through their store.

The Nexus One will still be available through various hardware partners including Vodafone in Europe. In the US, the Nexus One is still available via T-Mobile for US$ 179 or unlocked for US$ 529. Developers who need the Nexus One to access the most immediate version of the Android OS (Google issues over-the-air updates to the Nexus One directly), can purchase the phone through the Android Market Publisher page, when logged in as a developer.
