Google Announces Google Phone Store Won’t be Selling Phones Anymore

Google Announces Google Phone Store Won’t be Selling Phones Anymore

Well, that's odd. Back in January, when Google officially unveiled the Nexus One to the world, the other big announcement was the Google Phone Store, where they would be selling the device. The Store wasn't meant to just sell the Nexus One, or at least that was what the original goal seemed to be. Google's ideas to sell multiple phones, to multiple carriers seemed like a great idea, until they began to run into some road blocks. Which, apparently, have lead to the result of the actual selling of phones through the digital retail shop.

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

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."

Droid Incredible Review (vs. Nexus One vs. Moto Droid)

Droid Incredible Review (vs. Nexus One vs. Moto Droid)

Incredible, they call it, and for once the marketing hyperbole may be right. The Verizon Droid Incredible by HTC takes a somewhat familiar spec sheet and squeezes out something different enough to stand out from the crowd. For our full review of the Droid Incredible, check out our dedicated Android Community coverage; if you're more interested in how this shiny new smartphone fits into the current Android line-up - and, more importantly, whether you should choose it or a rival device - then read on.

CDMA Nexus One stock already headed to Verizon?

Last we heard through the rumor-mill, Verizon were readying themselves for a March 23rd launch of the CDMA version of the Google Nexus One.  In apparent preparation for that, Chinese newspaper Economic Daily News are supposedly reporting that HTC have begun shipments of the handset to Verizon in the US, with European shipments of the GSM Nexus One headed to Vodafone "soon".

March 23rd reveal tipped for Verizon’s Nexus One

Having been spotted passing through the FCC, we now have a tipped release date for Verizon's CDMA version of the Google Nexus One, and it's a little earlier than we guesstimated last.  According to an anonymous Google employee speaking to Neowin, Verizon intend to announce the CDMA Nexus One on the first day of CTIA Wireless, namely March 23rd.

Google didn't hide the fact that they were planning a Verizon CDMA version of the Nexus One, it just wasn't ready for launch at the same time as the triband HSPA model currently on sale.  Set to go on sale in Spring 2010, at least according to the original announcement, the CDMA Nexus One has been spotted clearing the FCC.

Mystery phone ID’d as HTC Passion, hitting Verizon within months?

Mystery phone ID’d as HTC Passion, hitting Verizon within months?

Remember the mysterious HTC smartphone that showed up this time last week, and that we all assumed was the upcoming Snapdragon-based HTC Dragon?  Well, the source of those images, TheUnlockr, has decided it's the Dragon too, or to be more exact Verizon's version of the handset, the HTC Passion.  He's claiming 90-percent certainty on the ID, and if so you could be seeing this Android smartphone on shelves by the end of the year.

The Passion (aka the CDMA Dragon) is expected to be the Android version of the HTC HD2, which basically adds up to a huge capacitive touchscreen - the HD2 uses a 4.3-inch panel - together with all the wireless connectivity you could hope for an a 1GHz processor.  The touch-sensitive buttons beneath the touchscreen on the Passion certainly look like those on Verizon's other upcoming Android handsets, such as the Motorola Droid, and the white notification bar is similar too.

MiFi 2200 firmware update adds Sprint CDMA roaming

MiFi 2200 firmware update adds Sprint CDMA roaming

MiFi 2200 owners in the US have a treat in store, with a new firmware update available seemingly for both the Verizon and Sprint versions of the intelligent mobile hotspot.  The new firmware addresses WiFi compatibility issues with the Nintendo DS and BlackBerry Curve, as well as - for the Sprint MiFi 2200 at least - enabling "international roaming".  However don't get too excited; that doesn't mean Novatel have suddenly unlocked GSM support in the hitherto CDMA-only hotspot.

When will Verizon Wireless get the iPhone?

When will Verizon Wireless get the iPhone?

The surest way for someone to generate attention is by making an Apple prediction. Apple has a cult following, and its product development and launch strategy is famously secretive, so the fact that your source is the lunch counter guy across the block from the Hon Hai factory in Taiwan won’t be discovered (or may even be considered authoritative!). Financial analysts are often the worst offenders – we have been promised an Apple tablet more times than I can count, assured that an iPhone nano was on the way, and where’s that iPod touch with a camera?

However, market analysts like me (and fellow SlashGear columnist Michael Gartenberg) rarely talk about specific products before they’re launched. Often, that’s because I can’t: vendors frequently tell me what they are working on ahead of time under non-disclosure agreements. Another reason that I don’t make specific predictions is that I simply hate being wrong: my job depends on my being both trustworthy and generally accurate, and I’m not about to jeopardize that for a bit of extra attention in the press.
