    I don't think this has anything to do with the iPhone. :rolleyes:

    Google had a production run, that production run is now complete and they'll come out with another phone soon. It probably has more to do with pressure from other, more popular Android models than Apple.

    So now this thread is unlocked? mmk =)

    But yea the Nexus One was starting to become outdated vs the other Androids and didn't put up a good fight with the iPhone 4.

    It was a good run and looking forward to the next product HTC and Google can build and stamp it as 'the' Google phone.

    LOL.

    Google merely stops selling Nexus One directly. They are going for the retail route.

    Please read the article first. :rolleyes:

    No, since it's the reference phone, it gets updates first. It got froyo first, and it'll get gingerbread next.

    Interesting. Even though it's a reference phone I like it better then all the other Android phones. It's the right size, clean and simple lines and has the base UI which is elegant compared to the overwrought nature of the other ones. Maybe the Nexus 2 is coming with Gingerbread?:cool:

    Eric Schmidt (Google CEO) confirmed almost two weeks ago that there will be no Nexus Two.

    Google is staying away from the hardware business. Makes sense too. Why compete with your own partners?

    Nexus One will be their first and last branded phone. One of the most underappreciated phones of all-time. Could be a collector's item someday. Google's only branded phone ever.

    Won't ever get gingerbread, Nexus One isn't powerful enough to handle it. Need 1 ghz processor and 512 mb of RAM for gingerbread.

    Yes it will. N1 has the Snapdragon and 512 MB of RAM.

    Gingerbread will be going to the Nexus One first. It is being used as the minimum baseline for Gingerbread.

    Nexus One is a Blade Runner reference. The last thing they would call it is the Nexus Two. Surprised more of you didn't catch that.

    the nexus one has been shown to run linux. That **** is cool. But it is not that good in comparison to the incredible, droid x, evo.... the nexus 2 will kick ass im sure.
