It is with great sadness I expect that Google announced the closure of their online Nexus One retail channel. They concede that the experiment of online only sales did not work and will instead focus on delivering any future phones through existing retails channels.
What does this mean for Nexus One owners? Not much. Your experience won't change as Google still remains 100% committed to the Android platform - and we've seen huge growth of that platform in the past 6 months. Our site of course will remain up forever as well (well, maybe not FOREVER, but you get the idea) -- we aren't going anywhere and plan to offer Nexus One users support and assistance for a long time to come.
In addition, consumer choice is getting better and better. More and more bleeding edge phones have been released and Google's own announcement tells people to check out some recent alternatives, such as the Droid Incredible/HTC Incredible for the Verizon network and the HTC Evo 4G/Sprint EVO 4G for the Sprint network.
