    Google recently indicated via a blog post that the HTC Droid Incredible is taking the place of a Verizon-compatible version of the Nexus One. Google writes in its blog, "If you’ve been waiting for the Nexus One for Verizon Wireless’ network, head over [VerizonWireless.com] to pre-order the Droid Incredible by HTC."

    Seems right; the incredible is the nexus one repacked in red and black.

    Makes sense to me. There are some differences between the two, but overall it's virtually the same device.

    I haven't even met anyone with a Nexus One so something tells me this news will inspire very little disappointment. Not that I'd buy one but I'm curious as to whether or not Verizon is anywhere near trying to bring the iPhone over to Big Red. I'm sure there's probably a ton of threads and articles on this, but I look forward to it. AT&T have become a bunch of greedy slackers with poor service and I think it's about time someone puts them out of their misery. Given they're practically riding on the iPhone's back, having it brought over to a successful carrier like Verizon would likely minus them more than half of their customer base.

    Has this actually been confirmed "officially" though? Wasn't there similar text and a link that directed you to the Moto Droid prior to this. Since the Incredible is the new kid on the block and the Droid has already sold extremely well, perhaps this is simply an opportunity for Verizon to promote their latest edition before the Nexus actually arrives. But who knows.

    iirc in the Droid's case the note said something to the effect of: "If you can't wait for the N1 on VZW... buy a Droid".

    This seems a bit more to the point, imo.

    Go to the actual website (Nexus One Phone - Web meets phone.).

    It's legit.

    Major failure. That piece of crap is nothing like the Nexus. I'd take the Nexus over that garbage phone any day.
    Guess I have to stick with my Droid.

    Not according to the multi-touch specs. Vastly improved.

    I wasn't questioning the legitimacy of the link. Just whether there has been an "official" announcement by Google, HTC or Verizon that the N1 would not be released.
