As we fast approach the rumored March 23 launch date for Verizon's version of the Nexus One, it's no surprise that more details (read: rumors) have come and gone, and some have been debunked. Last week, word on the street was that select Verizon employees were being trained on the N1, leading many to believe that it would be coming to retail stores.
I was a bit hesitant to believe that Google was giving up so fast on their plan to change the wireless industry, and it turns out I was right. Android Central recently posted a snapshot of an internal Verizon "Equipment Guide" system which clearly states that "The HTC Google Nexus One is only available through www.Google.com/Phone."
The same snapshot (initially) suggested that the Verizon N1 would be sporting HTCs Sense UI. Many people questioned whether Google would be changing its game plan by offering Sense UI instead of stock Android 2.1, and not long after the first post of the system snapshot, Verizon fixed the errors on their internal site and Sense was removed. As of now, it looks like Google will be selling the CDMA Nexus One in the same way it did with the GSM version for T-Mobile.
CTIA, along with the anticipated Verizon Nexus One release, is but a week away. Will you be staring at the screen, waiting for the announcement, credit card in hand? Sound off in the comments!
