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."

The Daily Slash: April 22nd 2010

We're one day away from the weekend, so we've got to make tonight special. You know, because it's one day before the weekend. And that's got to be a holiday somewhere. So, with that in mind, we'll start the Best of R3 with a bit of Vodafone UK Google Nexus One goodness, and then some Hulu iPad talk, and then some bad news for the Nexus One. And then in in the Dredge 'Net, we've got a watch made from the Ash of a volcano, Microsoft finally releases some touch goodness, and ARM executives letting everyone know they don't need to be bought.

The Droid Incredible is, well, Incredible

The Droid Incredible is, well, Incredible

At the beginning of the year, Google called a group of reporters and analysts to Google HQ to announce a new phone, the Nexus One. A joint effort of HTC and Google, the N1 was a slim device, running a speedy Snapdragon processor and an AMOLED display. Running the latest version of Android, 2.1, it was state of the art, at least for January.

iPad gets up close & personal with Dell Mini 5

We obviously love all of our gadgets equally here at SlashGear, and wouldn't dream of playing favorites, but when someone suggests bringing the toys together and having a good old fashioned comparison photo shoot then count us in.  We found ourselves clutching an iPad up close to Dell's Mini 5 and a host of smartphones this weekend, and since they're not exactly in common circulation we thought you might like to see the end results.

Nexus One Car Dock Finally Gets A Face Shot [update]

We've been waiting for a long time to see something on the car dock, and it looks like we're finally going to be able to stop holding our breath. We're relieved, to say the least. Truth is, since about mid-January, we thought this bad boy would be ours to hold and enjoy, but it's taken Google their sweet time to get this thing unveiled. And, the sad truth is, they still haven't. The car dock, as complete as it may look in this image, is still not available in the Google Phone Store.

The comparative merits of Flash 10.1 and HTML5 are a hot topic right now, given the imminent arrival of the Flash-free iPad, and Adobe are doing their best to point out that their system isn't quite as passé as some analysts would have you believe.  Flash evangelist Michaël Chaize has been comparing Flash 10.1 performance on his Google Nexus One with HTML5, and the Adobe technology still comes out ahead.

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.
