Google’s Nexus One now in Retail Outlets, Online Store to be Closed

Google's Nexus One Android smartphone will soon be accessible to a broad range of consumers.

The company said that the phone that was sold over the web without a bond will be offered at retail stores carried by wireless suppliers.

Nexus One is made by the Taiwanese possessed HTC and was initially accessible in only four areas, the United States, the U. K., Singapore, and Hong Kong, solely through Google’s online store.

But, last Friday, on May 14 Google Inc. declared that it will shut down its online store that was created to promote its Nexus One phone. Now, the search engine giant has decided to move to conventional retail stores to vend its product.

The plan marks the ending of Google’s endeavor to expand a new sales model for the cell phone industry, whereby its online store was alleged to be the only mode available to get the Nexus One smartphone.

This move only substantiates that buyers were not excited in buying a mobile phone, which was offered only online, avoiding any direct hands-on experience.

Andy Rubin, Google Engineering Vice-President wrote in their official blog post, "As with every innovation, some parts worked better than others".

Rubin said that Google will cease retailing the Nexus One on its web-based platform wholly, once traditional vendors have been accurately established for the American marketplace.
