Google: No Nexus One for Verizon After All, Sorry

Google today updated the Nexus One product page with more information on its partnership with Verizon Wireless in the United States and Vodafone in the U.K. Just a quick recap: When the company announced the device back in January, the phone was said to be hitting both Verizon and Vodafone later in the year.

Unfortunately, that is no longer the case. While Vodafone begins accepting pre-orders for Nexus One for customers in the UK (shipping begins April 30) and will soon start selling the Nexus One in France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands and Spain, Verizon will not be getting the Nexus One at all.

"In the US, if you’ve been waiting for the Nexus One for Verizon Wireless’ network, head over to to pre-order the Droid Incredible by HTC, a powerful new Android phone and a cousin of the Nexus One that is similarly feature-packed. It will be available in stores on April 29th."

When contacted for comment, Google had the following to say:

"We won't be selling a Nexus One with Verizon, and this is a reflection of the amazing innovation happening across the open Android ecosystem. Verizon Wireless customers who want an Android phone with the power of the Nexus One can get the Droid Incredible by HTC."

Any jilted Verizon customers in the house?

    I don't understand why anyone would be "kilted"; the Incredible is everything the Nexus One is, and more.
    In my mind, the Nexus One was an experimental flagship, with every phone thereafter being a newer, better itiration of "the Google phone."
    If I were on Verizon, I'd gladly take an Incredible over a Nexus One.

    Thats too bad, i think the nexus one looks much sleeker then the incredible does. Given, i am still happy on my droid.
