Leaked Screens Confirm Nexus One Sold by Google, Supported by T-Mobile

The images to the left of this paragraph and below are the most solid indication of the Google Phone (Nexus One) and the plans for it.  We’ve been hearing for a few weeks now about a rumored January 5th date for launch or announcement and these seem to help substantiate that.  Also a commonly spread .  The sources for these two pictures are Boy Genius Report and TmoNews tipsters and both essentially say the same thing.

As it looks, the Nexus One will come from Google via the internet with carrier support from T-Mobile.  An update to TmoNews article says to look for a January 5th 9:00AM sale. 

  • Support for the device including troubleshooting and exchanged will be managed by Google and HTC.
  • T-Mobile will offer service support including billing, coverage, features and rate plans.

The second, smaller image is harder to read but the text has been transcribed.

Google, with support from T-Mobile, is scheduled to launch a new Android device in early January. The Google Android phone will be sold directly by Google via the Web.

Support for the device including troubleshooting and exchanges will be managed by Google and HTC. T-Mobile will offer service support including billing, coverage, features, and rate plans.

This will be a very exciting few days!  Will the Nexus One steal the CES thunder?

  • It sounds like another ADP. http://android.brightstarcorp.com/index.htm

    Just sounds like the standard Android Developer Phone setup. I would be really surprised if the Nexus One wasn't also available directly from T-mobile under a different name, just like the ADP1->G1 and ADP2->MyTouch. I assume they are also going to switch the name from Nexus One to ADP3, just like they did with the Ion/ADP2.

  • Watching Android rollout to date, I am left with two conflicting data points. One, is that everyone I talk to within Google is supremely confident that the data (that they are looking at) suggests that they are poised to win in the market. Two, I am confused relative to the ‘battles’ and ‘war’ analogy, what is the battle they are fighting and what is the war that they expect to win.

    By that, I mean at this stage they are not in the same league to win the potential iPhone buyer, as Android lacks on hardware design, developer tools, media, apps momentum and marketplace.

    Yet, based upon RIM’s last quarter, it’s not like they are taking share from the Blackberry. Hence, best guess is that they are REALLY going after the Nokia and Symbian ecosystem, which is fine and logical, as it represents a comparable structure in terms of variety of device form-factors, multi-carrier approach and Nokia/Symbian has a dispirited developer base, so low hanging fruit.

    The only paradox is that to win that audience, you can’t be effectively competing with the handset guys (i.e., Motorola, HTC, Samsung, LG) in either soft or hard form (by anointing a preferred device/partner or formally branding, marketing a Google device). Yet, to not do so is to guarantee that the distance between iPhone and Android only grows.

    Personally, I think that they have misread the market, and face a choice between a fragmented market or abandoning their open credo and trying to go toe-to-toe with Apple in areas that Google hasn’t proven to be strong at; namely, hardware design, user experience, developer tools, etc.

    For more fodder on this one, here is a post that I wrote called:
