"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." 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.
