I'm reading alot of news site that Verizon won't be selling the Nexus One through there stores or online but only through Google. If thats the case there will still be no "brick and mortar"backing this phone up. Also Verizon can deflect customer issues onto Google and we have heard how that has worked out. I want this phone...just a little wary of being on the test run for Google. Question for you all..Do we think the price will be the same as t-mobile contract or will Verizon shoot us with the $299 with $100 mail in?

maybe 299 since it will be a new phone with popular demand. Hope fully 179. I get my upgrade in april but feel it might be irrelevant because Dont know it will be eligible with Google.

it could also have to do with tmobile. I'm sure if it had come out on verizon, the results would be better. I'm sure this device would sell way more too if we could actually see and play with it. Especially because its big advantage is that 3.8" amoled display. I'm not going to want it when I can't see it. With 2.5 years since the original iphone, you would think they could get it right.

this will be a bomb on VZW. No reps will talk about, reccommend or support this device, since it's only online. No commission = not caring

thats funny and true....on the other hand Blackberry must be good on commission because any time i go into the local VZW store and tell them i'm looking at smartphones all they push is blackberry

no verizon customers would buy the device because they should have it available on their own network soon, I'm sure you won't find any att members jumping away from their iphones to tmobile for this, and frankly the upcoming hd2 would keep some tmobile customers in waiting. Not alot of market share available for google on this one.

Low sales volume of NexusOne not at all surprising: 2. no available models to touch/feel/examine/play with before you buy? Even T-Mobile stores don't carry working models. No customer service available. Other than the fancy pictures and graphics, FAQs and ads, there's nobody to talk to over there. 1. no 3G for AT&T network. Many folks actually HAVE to go with AT&T which has the best coverage for where they live and work. 3. ridiculous ETF amounts from Google AND T-Mobile. Google has become so arrogant (and clueless) about Customer Service it's almost laughable to see where they're perched. Try looking into Google blogs and see where all the complaints about Google go (nowhere). Suggestions/complaints about the iGoogle sidebar, Chrome options, etc etc. Google never listens to anybody except themselves.

And remember googles fake slogan is "don't be evil." But I guess bad customer service isn't nessessarily EVIL. Sidenote. So insted of typing this comment in on my Pixi I am using my G1. Holy crap this browser sucks in comparison to the WebOS browser. Also this keyboard sucks. I forgot why I never used my G1 for internet. Honestly imo Android sucks in comparison to Webos. I used to crazy about it till I got my Pixi. But i'd still take android over an iphone. Cus I'm not a gay fish like Kanye.

Do you feel gay, as a man saying I have a Pixi? Just a question.

I believe Google really messed up with this device. The device itself is amazing, it really is...but for them to only sell it thru themselves and not let the wireless provider put it on the shelves is a HUGE mistake, just like "icarus" said, none of the reps will promote this device. If a rep doesnt have the phone in stock and will not get a comission...that device does not matter, might as well not even exist. I know this because I am a VZW rep and I would not promote this device whatsoever. Google really messed up big time. The Nexus would have easily outsold the DROID by a long shot. Also I would be happy to put the blame on someone else when there is a problem with a phone...rather than acting like it is Verizons defective device we now can say its not our problem. :)
