According to Bloomberg, Verizon has completely lost interest in the Nexus One despite the months of it being advertised as “coming to Verizon Spring 2010”. As far as we can tell there are two primary reasons for this.
As is true with all Verizon phones, they are big on branding and they don’t like to support unlocked phones. The Droid Incredible ships as a Verizon exclusive with their name all over the outside and inside of it.
The Incredible Is More.. Incredible
In reflection of this change, Google has updated their Nexus One page and is redirecting people to purchase the Droid Incredible from Verizon instead. Either way I guess Google still has one more phone on their OS platform that Verizon users will be running with the Incredible so they can’t be too unhappy about it.
Still, if you want to save some money and you’re looking at whether to buy the older (and cheaper) Droid original, take a look at the comparison chart from WireFly.
The Droid Incredible went onsale April 29, 2010.
