Google have officially launched the Nexus One, and it's available to order through the search giant's new webstore.  As expected, Google have partnered with T-Mobile in the US to offer the HTC-built Nexus One; however, Google also revealed that, as of Spring 2010, the "superphone" will be available through Verizon Wireless in the US and Vodafone in Europe.  Unlocked, the GSM Nexus One is priced at $529 with free two-line engraving on the back, a case, wall-charger and USB cable; subsidized by T-Mobile, it drops to $179.  Both options are shipping now, and can be ordered and activated entirely online; Google will also ship the unlocked Nexus One to the UK, Singapore and Hong Kong, with other countries (and localized versions) promised soon.
