If you have had your eye on grabbing a Nexus One via the official Google Phone site, you better get a move-on because Google has just received its last shipment of the device and once they are sold, Google’s store will close and it will sell them no more.
It isn’t quite the death knell for the Google phone, its partners (including Vodafone in Europe and KT in Korea) will still continue to sell the device in it’s stores and online.
Google posted the following on its Nexus One blog:
Earlier this year, we announced that we will be closing the Nexus One web store. This week we received our last shipment of Nexus One phones. Once we sell these devices, the Nexus One will no longer be available online from Google. Customer support will still be available for current Nexus One customers. And Nexus One will continue to be sold by partners including Vodafone in Europe, KT in Korea, and possibly others based on local market conditions.
To ensure our developers have access to a phone with the latest Android OS, Google will be offering the Nexus One through a partner for sale to registered developers. Visit the Android Market Publisher site and log into your developer account to purchase a Nexus One.
If you wanted to get an engraved and unlocked Nexus One directly from Google, now is the time.
