Google committed to Play store, will continue selling phones on it

Jamie Rosenberg, VP of Google Play, confirmed Google will stick with that model in the future.
Back when it was all starting, Google had some issues with the Nexus One and decided to sell the device via carriers after first starting on Google Play.
"It's remained a niche channel for early adopters, but it's clear that many customers like a hands-on experience before buying a phone, and they also want a wide range of service plans to chose from," Android head Andy Rubin said then.
Luckily, those issues seem to have become a thing of the past now as Google is widening its device portfolio with devices like the Nexus 4, 7, 10 and most recently the Google Chrome Pixel. With the rumored possibility of Google opening its own retail stores, we are not surprised the company will only strengthen its position as an online etailer.

This is great google dont let the big fruit bully or bans your products we the consumer have the rights what we should buy. Not because some other company is afraid of loosing the competition. Would be nice if the galaxy nexus was still selling

Why would you want to buy a galaxy nexus when you could buy a nexus 4?

They need to improve their customer service first before they commit to anything. The launches for their previous devices have been atrocious. Google has a ton of money, apparently enough to pump out devices that get killed off(Nexus Q) and yet they can't seem to fix the customer service issue. That's the one thing that will make it more successful.

Important advice from a basher...Have you had any reason to contact Google's customer service considering you have iphone written all over you? Or did you call their customer service to report an iphone issue? ...Just asking.

Please make the store available worldwide, It's unfair, I want to buy a Nexus 4 from your website, but it says you're unable to sell your products in my country :(
