Is Verizon missing out on the Nexus One? | AndroidSPIN | Your No.1 source for Android news.
On the Verizon Wireless web site there is a section that shows a Buy One Get One free (BOGO) promotion for the Motorola Droid and the Palm Pre & Pixi. There is a timer in the upper left that is counting down with the caption "Hurry time is running out".
As of this morning (~8:30 am EDT 03/26/2010), there is 5 days 15 hours and 30 minutes left. What do you want to bet that the Nexus One will not come out until after that timer counts down to zero.
If I did my math right that would be April 1st (no April fools).
My guess is the folks at Vzw want to clear their shelves of some of these phone before they start selling the Nexus One because they know once it's out these other phones will not sell as well.
If your guess turns out to be a lucky and correct one, I'd put my money on Verizon shelves being cleared for the HTC Incredible, not the N1. There is more than enough evidence pointing to N1 only being available from Google. Doesn't mean it might not be released concurrently with Incredible for Verizon, but there's never been any indication from any credible source that N1 would be in stores.
I believe the reason for not releasing the N1 yet is because of Iraqi terrorists. They are holding the person responsible for giving the ok to release the phone hostage. By doing this, it's making people loose control of their minds and run in circles waiting and waiting. It's also making them come up with bizarre speculations on whats going on.
You watch, when April 1st comes around, the terrorists are gonna show all of us whose the fool.
If you go to the verizonwireless.com home page right now, there is a countdown going for the "buy one/get one" 3g smartphone deal. Doesn't it make the most sense that this countdown is a way to clear out inventory and at the end of the countdown they'll release the Nexus One or HTC Incredible or both?
By my count, the timer will run out at midnight on April 1st.
