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."

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.

Google Carrier? It’s about time!

After years of speculation, rumor, and chatter from Google itself, it would appear that the company is preparing itself to be its own mobile carrier. This would mean that, if you purchase a Nexus 6, for example, from Google, you could potentially also be paying Google for the data you use on the device, with data being served by the same towers as serve T-Mobile USA.

Google’s Project Fi: what we do (and don’t) know

With news breaking that Google is likely working on some sort of MVNO service for Nexus handsets, we’ve got as many new questions as we had old curiosities. Is Google sidestepping carriers and bringing a network direct to customers? Yes and no. While ‘Project Fi’ definitely tells us Google has something going on, we don’t get a lot of the gritty details.

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.

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.
