    Verizon also said no a few years ago when Apple approached them with what was to become the iPhone. You would think that they would have learned something from that.

    I believe there's quite a bit more to that story.

    The reason they went with t-mob was because it's a GSM based phone. So they only had a limited option to go with in the first place, and with so much flak that AT&T is getting about their network, it seems smarter to go with the company that is not being all out attacked by verizon.
    Resistance is futile.

    I'm a little confused. What makes this a "Google Phone" any more than other android devices?

    I thought the Google Phone was going to be a data-only device that used google voice instead of getting in bed with a cell phone company. Is the Nexus One being built by Google. It looks like the same general specs as the Droid, with the exception of the AMOLED screen.

    Am I missing something?
    Samsung Galaxy Nexus
    AOKP Rom - current build

    From what I am reading the reason they went with GSM was because Verizon declined Google's initial overtures to promote the new device and T-Mobile was plan B. Considering HTC is making it, putting a CDMA radio in it would not have been an issue.

    But haven't they really limited their selfs to limited coverage? When I had T-Mobile coverage was pretty much limited to main highways/cities etc has it improved that much?

    In my case, by going with GSM they have severely limited it. South Dakota currently has no GSM coverage but to answer your question, T-Mobile will only be a partner as Google also plans to sell the phone unlocked and unsubsidized so you can pop in a SIM from any GSM provider and use it.
