Another sign that the Nexus One is closer to its Verizon release
When you upgrade your phone and ask the rep to move all of your contacts to the new device, the rep uses the Cellebrite machine to make the transfer. When a handset is first listed on the machine, it often is a good bet that the release of the device is imminent. We don't want to add fuel to the fire, but we need to let those Verizon customers who have passed over the Motorola DROID know that the Big Red variant of the Nexus One is now listed on the CelleBrite machine. Sure, it doesn't give us a launch date or pricing info, but it does tell us that your wait might soon finally be over. And while there seems to have been some complaints about Google's superphone in regards to finish and screen quality, sound and battery life, the N-One is still being heavily anticipated by a large number of Verizon's smartphone users. The carrier seems to be hedging its bets, though, and as we reported, recently added two fresh new commercials for the DROID along with a new tagline.

First off, that doesn't mean its coming to VZW. What is the harrier? And when did VZW get the HD2? That is just the screen to transfer contacts FROM a Nexus One phone TO a VZW device. Plus, I'm waiting for the Incredible. : )

the first part of your comment is true, cellebrite has all the carriers that's why the HD2 is in there.. and probably why the nexus one is in there too

agreed, by the logic used here the same screenshot would imply that the HD2 is coming to verizon (yeah right! great thinking phonearena). and the harrier is the Audiovox 6600 (OLD PPC phone edition with portrait slide out keyboard) predecessor to the Apache (AKA PPC-6700 and XV6700, both of which carried the UTStarcom brand name)

another stupid phone arena post... it could easily be tmobile we are seeing.. since it has the htc hd2 in it and htc harrier the cellebrite is used by all carriers so this is a FAIL now if it had verizon on the cellulite machine I could believe it more..

the htc harrier was a sprint/verizon phone, not a t-mo phone. nice try though. and it wouldn't say verizon on the screen, it would just say CDMA (like the CDMA hero that is listed on the same screenshot.

It says source, so sure Verizon can copy contacts from a Nexus One, but it doesn't show the Nexus One as the phone the contacts are being transfered to.

I just spoke to our account manger, and he mentioned that he was toying around with a N1 , and the incredible, and he said they were both amaziing devices. So of course my first questions was " is the N1 going to be available in the store , or through google?" And to my surpise and delight. His answer was yes!! He said the only down side is the phones are high cost, so therefore they will be a higher cost, with an activation/upgrade on vzw. But there we go he answered the question weve all been dying to know. just a side note he said he enjoyed the INCREDIBLE much more than the nexus 1. so there you herd it first. and no im not pulling this out of my ass. im being 100 percent legitmite...... N1 here i come. .. .. or incredible :)

This doesn't mean anything. Working at a Verizon store I can tell ya, we have tons of phones in Cellebrite that we don't carry for the sole purpose of being able to transfer contacts for people porting in VZW from other carriers. This is really no bit of proof at all.

The cellbrite machine isnt a Verizon product. The iPhone has been in the cellbrite machine since the 1st gen. and Verizon hasnt seen that phone yet. Why would this be any different? This is not a "sign" that the Nexus One is close. Its just preparation for those who possibly may be switching from the N1.
