This is a discussion on Official Nexus One VERIZON thread! within the Verizon forums, part of the Android Phone Carriers category; damn! i want my n1! The Engadget app for Android is finally, really here! -- Engadget...
Think about this logically. Verizon basically has two things on its plate right now: The Nexus One, and its "Buy One Get One" deal on smart phones.
Scenario 1: Nexus One is released before the deal ends
Verizon has to eat the cost of the thousands of people who take advantage of the deal to get two Nexus Ones for the price of one.
Scenario 2: Nexus One is announced before the deal ends
This would hurt (but probably not kill) Verizon's deal. The people who are waiting for the Nexus One are still going to wait for it, but plenty of people who would have taken advantage of the deal are now going to wait the extra week for the Nexus One.
Scenario 3: The Nexus One comes out after the deal is over
This is the best plan for Verizon, because it allows them to debut a hot new phone immediately after clearing out as many of their smart phones as possible. Even if they don't need the inventory space (it sounds like the CDMA Nexus One is shipping from Google only as usual), this plan allows Verizon to sell the greatest number of phones.
In other words, the odds of hearing anything about the Nexus One before the "Buy One Get One" deal is over are basically zero.
I try to look at the whole N1 craziness from Two points. VZW and Sprint. If VZW wouldnt announce N1 due to their business reasons, what stopping Sprint from releasing the N1?
A Google guy (From Product Review) stated when asked "When is Verizon N1 going to be announce? "Answer, When the product is ready" The delay is between Google and HTC. Thats my Take and I believe IT.
maybe it's both. i do agree that vzw probably won't say $hit until the two for one is over.
