Verizon's Nexus One is to be sold online only - Sense UI on board as well?
Although there were some rumors about the potential of Verizon's version of the Nexus One being sold in retail stores, the end result is nothing short of surprising – it's confirmed to be sold through Google's online store. There would definitely be some shake ups happening if Google allowed the smartphone to be sold in Verizon stores – throwing T-Mobile under the bus if that obviously occurred. Competition will be no different now that both the T-Mobile and Verizon versions will be offered at the same place –  except for one surprise that may change things. One thing that did stand out on Verizon's Equipment Guide page for the Nexus One is that it'll have the Sense UI on board – something that clearly raises an eyebrow. One would have to ask whether or not that one major inclusion would sway the tidings in Big Red's favor – especially when you consider the relatively uniform execution Google has been following. Will the T-Mobile version of the Nexus One see the light of the Sense UI or would they offer an update down the road to get it? If the Verizon Nexus One will indeed have Sense loaded on, it would really throw a bump in the road and could place the favor in one handset over the other.

To correct myself...u'd only get a trial if there was a contract involved from VZW...otherwise itd be under Google's return policy...their moto is dont be evil so i am sure they got a good one, lol...not sure how this is gonna work...

having worked for verizon tech support the screenshot is accurate, however i would be willing to be that it's just wrong information that vzw published internally. It would ABSOLUTELY not be the first time they have done that.

What's up with just a 4gb card as well?

That has to be a typo, there is no way in the world Google would allow this, especially since the reason for the Nexus 1 in the first place is for a base level of uniformity.

All of you who claim to work at vzw. And say this is bogus or fake because you cannot find this in the equipment guide. Your noobs. This has been an internal document for atleast a week. And this was updated with a picture today. Deny it all you want but its quite easy to find.
