Google files trademark application for Nexus One
With more proof coming in everyday that the HTC Nexus One is a Google Phone,  perhaps the best proof has come in the form of an intent-to-use trademark application by Google for "Nexus One". This means that the Mountain View firm will have to use the name for business at some time in the future. But this only proves that tjhe device is a Google phone, not necessarily THE Google Phone. None other than Mobile-Review Editor-in-chief Eldar Murtazin says that the Nexus One is a HTC Passion running Android 2.1 and is a Google phone only in the sense that any Android phone running Google's open source OS is a Google phone. Of course, this is what Google itself has been saying from the first moment that word leaked about the Nexus One. Still, the drama continues and who knows what will happen tomorrow!

I kinda agree with that. Maybe there is no "google phone" just that this is a variant of a type of phone that runs android. This also means the Bravo could be a cdma variant of the passion or the passion could be cdma. Either way maybe there is a chance Verizon gets something like this?

the only difference between the "google phone" and a regular android phone is that the "google phone" is supposed to run all of its calls through VoiP and all its texting through data as well, killing the requirement for a voiceplan. Thats why they are going to sell it directly through google, as most companies dont want a phone that runs entirely on data for 2 reasons. 1) too many of them will clog up the network and slow it down for everyone. 2) it will severely cut into their profit margins, and companies dont like to lose money.
