Well that's true. The inability to get a Nexus One in store on my existing company plan is what lead me to get a Cliq XT. Which to my own surprise I really like Motoblur and would actually prefer to have it over stock vanilla android. So in some ways I'm sad I don't have a nexus one, but in others I REALLY like my Cliq XT.

I am kind of bummed about this. I think the carriers have us so brainwashed into thinking we need them to purchase these phones through them exclusively. Granted for most users, holding and using a phone are totally valid. However for people that read this website, you are probably more interested in getting an unlocked phone. I dont think this is the end of it until the platform has more diversity in its products. This isnt the end of Google's online retail presence methinks.

I love the concept of what they did but they made the plans and crap sooo rediculous they shot themselves in the foot. Then again if it was an instore phone they prob woulda sold 10x more.

+ 1 Good point wade. If Google would have partnered just with Wal-Mart for the nexus, that would be far better than selling at the various stores IMO. I thought the retail of $500 something was a bit ambitious.. I keep reading on various blogs that a lot of people think $199 is a lot for a high end smartphone, and I think their nuts! Well, at least they tried. G can't always succeed.
