Nexus One commences its next phase as it starts showing up through indirect channels

Nexus One commences its next phase as it starts showing up through indirect channels
Google still considers the Nexus One as a profitable and successful business venture where they learned first hand how elbow grease is required in bringing out their own handset to the market and away from the traditional mold of phone sales here in the US. Now that both Sprint and Verizon Wireless have decided to not take part with the Nexus One, Google decided to move forward by branching out to other retailers to spread their pride and glory. Now it looks like the authorized T-Mobile retailer, i Wireless, has started to sell the Nexus One in locations with a price tag that makes it a bit hard to swallow for some. Consumers were able to gobble up the Android handset through Google directly for a reasonable $179 on-contract price with a 2-year agreement with T-Mobile, but i Wireless is selling it for $299.95 with an agreement – now the only difference is that  i Wireless allows customers to purchase it with just about any plan that T-Mobile offers. Conversely, Google mandated its price based on the Even More 500 plan that prevented customers from going with anything less. It may seem like a double edged sword for some people because Google's pricing was definitely attractive while the offering from i Wireless lets you buy it with just about any plan. We'll see if this move by Google to start offering the Nexus One to other retail stores will provoke some sales.
