So I was wrong about Google
The Nexus One looks like a great product, clearly sexier than the Samsung model I was drooling over last summer (and which sort of made it to T-Mobile recently with new software and a new name). Powered by a high-end Qualcomm
But that's not the point. Google isn't even trying to market the Nexus One hard, the way Verizon
If the Nexus One becomes a huge success, it would be a testament to the power of online marketing. Google doesn't intend to sell its phones in physical stores where customers can finger the goods. Launch partner T-Mobile isn't even selling the Nexus One in its own online store, and I suppose Verizon Wireless won't do that either when a Verizon-compatible model becomes available later this spring.
This ain't no iPhone killer, folks. Don't sell your Apple stock based on this announcement, and hang onto your Research In Motion
