Google Verizon Nexus One plans shelved in favor of Droid Incredible?

Back in our Verizon Droid Incredible by HTC review last week, we pondered about who would pick up a Verizon Nexus One when the arguably superior Incredible was available.  It's looking like Google themselves might be wondering the same thing; their Nexus One page has been updated, with the previous "coming soon to Verizon" message replaced by a link to the Droid Incredible preorder site and the suggestion that the new handset is the "similarly feature-packed cousin of the Nexus One."

Google’s Nexus One Could Hit Verizon Wireless With Some Surprises

Google’s Nexus One Could Hit Verizon Wireless With Some Surprises

Hurry up and wait. That's what many on the Verizon Wireless network have been forced to do, ever since the Nexus One was announced back in January. Despite the fact the phone has been listed as "Spring 2010" since day one, that hasn't stopped people from impatiently waiting the handset's launch. It looks like Google is sticking to their guns, though, because there hasn't been much in the form of release date information other than that "Spring 2010" staring at you.

Carrier apps appear in Nexus 6: no surprise

Carrier apps appear in Nexus 6: no surprise

Just as Google said they would, Verizon apps have appeared on the Nexus 6 after the device's update to Android 5.1. As it was foretold at the dawn of Android 5.0 Lollipop, so it has come to pass: Nexus devices with carrier apps onboard. Just like it was in the past. Just as it shall be in the future. While these apps will not be kept by some users, most never see them - and some will expect that they'd been there all along, as all Verizon phones have similar apps.

Verizon Nexus 6 released this week

This week the folks at Verizon have revealed release time and pricing for their version of the Nexus 6. This version of the Nexus 6 will come with Android 5.x Lollipop and will be rolling with the same 6-inch Quad-HD display and dual front-facing speakers that the first version of the Nexus 6 did. It's the same, but different. At this time it's not entirely clear how Verizon will get their apps onboard the Nexus 6. Likely it'll happen much like it was described when Lollipop was launched - downloads happen when the phone is activated.

Android 5.1 detailed, rolls out to Nexus and T-Mobile

After a bit of speculation and waiting, Google has finally given official word about the Android 5.1 update. Although it's a slightly bigger version bump than the maintenance releases, this upgrade isn't as spectacular as initially believed. That or Google is keeping things under wraps, leaving some treasures for us to discover on our own. That said, there are still a good number of changes in 5.1 that will appeal to both OEMs and users whatever the tier, from emerging markets to more seasoned ones.

Sundar Pichai: Google has carrier plans, but think Nexus-scale

Sundar Pichai: Google has carrier plans, but think Nexus-scale

Google will indeed light up its own MVNO network in the coming months, SVP Sundar Pichai has confirmed, but it's more like the Nexus of wireless than a strike at AT&T and Verizon. Rumors of Google-controlled wireless cellular service have circulated for some years, surfacing again in January with speculation of a direct-to-user network which the search giant would use to test out new mobile tech. According to Pichai, while there is indeed some truth in the Google MVNO chatter, it's not quite the same as a play for the market as a whole.

Nexus 6 now ‘coming soon’ for Verizon

The Nexus 6 has had a funky fate so far. After being released in limited runs, it seems to have caught up for the most part. You can order it from Google Play, but it leaves the Warehouse three days later. AT&T is selling it online, and after sending all their Nexus 6 stock back to the warehouse to fix a software bug, stores are starting to get it back. Now it seems as though Google's big smartphone is ready for big red, and will be coming to Verizon soon.
