Nexus One web store to close

An official statement by Google this week announced the closure of the Nexus One web store, saying that in future it will only be available through retail partners.

The reason given is basically a lack of sales success through this channel, only a small number of customers were interested enough in the Nexus One to buy it directly, and most of those would have had to pay the full price rather than receive a carrier subsidy.

In our view, the Nexus One was always doomed when the HTC Desire hit the streets.. the Desire is a better handset in our view, and most major carriers offer a subsidy for contract customers.
