Google drops Nexus One for Verizon, points to Incredible

updated 10:25 am EDT, Mon April 26, 2010

Verizon may have scrapped Nexus One plans

Google has quietly altered its Nexus One page to drop any mention of a Nexus One for Verizon. Despite what was promised in January, Google now points Verizon subscribers to the Droid Incredible and calls it a "similarly feature-packed cousin" to the Android flagship. No official reason has been given for the change of policy.

It's unclear whether Google or Verizon prompted the move, although Verizon may prefer the sales strategy for the Incredible: it can be sold subsidized and at retail, with custom software if it chooses. The Nexus One normally has to be sold through Google alone and uses a completely reference version of Android versus HTC's Sense UI-enabled front end.

AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile have all so had devices following Google's usual Nexus One strategy, although only T-Mobile has offered a subsidized version.
