Rumor: Verizon Already Training Employees on Nexus One

Boy Genius Report is reporting this morning that Verizon Wireless is currently in the process of training some of their employees on the Google Nexus One. Apparently the information BGR has is based on some e-mails which were bouncing around between curious customers and well-informed reps.  If these rumors are true a launch may be imminent. This news also makes me wonder: does this mean the handset will actually be sold in Verizon Wireless retail stores? Possibly, but I wouldn’t put money on it.

Wherever the phone ends up getting sold it will certainly be available through Google’s webstore, so anyone interested will definitely be able to get it there.  How many Verizon customers are interested in this phone? Would you give up your Droid for it? Let us know in the comments.

    I plan on being the first in line (where ever that's at) when Verizon or Google makes the announcement.

  • fdsa

    Would not give up the Droid unless it somehow blew it away

  • Kevin

    I've been a Verizon customer for over 10 years and have had my current phone since Jan 07, waiting for VZ to come out with a truly competitive phone. If N1 comes out in the near future, I'll be 1st in line.

    • Rich

      You'll have to move fast, otherwise you'll be 2nd, right behind me.

      • Fuzzy

        I have already talked to the guys at my neighborhood Verizon store. They will reserve one for me if it arrives for in-store sale. So, even though you two will be in line, I will be the first on to get it on launch day ;)

  • Cat

    I am a verizon customer and cannot wait for the nexus one to come out

  • OhYeah!

    I also have been waiting along time for Verizon to have a phone that fits me. I am not a fan of the Driods keyboard and the N1 just seems more 'sexier' I will have one as soon as the doors/site opens!

  • Guest

    I'm torn between the N1 and the rumored HTC Incredible. Unless there is a huge price difference – it well may come down to which hits first.

  • N1 fan

    i've been checking every day for a release date on this phone! I'll be first in line.

  • Marco

    Can't wait to see the N1 on Verizon. Less because I like Verizon more because we need more beta testers for the several issues with the N1. I want to know if the Verizon N1 has the same touchscreen issues and bad reception. The QC of HTC seems to be really bad at the moment.

  • Joe

    I was with Verizon for five years before leaving for T-Mobile to get the G1. I am definitely switching back for the N1 as soon as I’m inside the 6-month window for my T-Mo contract, which halves the ETF.

  • N-T

    Looks like there's going to be a lot of pushing and shoving the first day Verizon sells the N1. I'll be right there at the front too… :)

    I bought the N1 under T-Mobile the day IT came out, used it for 1 week but sent it back because of the horrible service provided by that carrier. Or maybe it was the 3G connection issue on the N1 that I'm assuming has been fixed in the CDMA edition.

  • jack

    friend has nexus one, it is awesome. wife will get eris and i will upgrade.

  • http://intensedebate.com/profiles/rhuth rhuth

    I've been a Verizon customer for five years, and was about to go to the dark side (AT&T -ha) for an iPhone until I found the N1 and it's spring release at Verizon. I willl be in line or online the 23rd FOR SURE. – as long as the rumors pan out ;)

  • Jim

    Currently have the Eris, which I'm happy with, but would like the speed and other features offered by the N1

  • Mike

    I am a Verizon customer and had a bad experience with the Motorla Krave, so I passed on the Droid. Just saw one in person today and was blown away by the Droid-most excellent. Been waiting to upgrade and now am torn between the Droid and the Nexus-1 and the upcoming HTC Incrediable. Any feedback?

  • Matthew

    I can do everything the Nexus One can do with my Droid. I don't care about it or Android 2.1. I'm clocked at the same speed as it also so I don't care that it has a 1Ghz processor….so do I.

    • jr157

      Does your dad know you are useing his phone, you sound alittle inmature. To have a big.boy phone

  • james

    OH I DEFINITELY AM GETTING ONE!!!! MY PLAN ENDS THE BEGINNING OF APRIL AND THEN THE NEXUS IS GOING TO BE MINE!!!

  • Mic

    One of my good friends works at VZW and I asked him point blank, "I hear rumors that N1 is dropping on the 23rd and it is actually coming to VZW stores and not just the google website, what do you hear?" His reply, "same thing :-)"

  • Todd

    I heard March 23rd also.

  • Margos

    I am waiting for N1 and passing on Driod. Love touch screen over keyboard . and would rather have a thinner phone

  • hazydave

    I like my Droid, I'm not interested in the Nexus One anytime soon. When the Droid's ready for replacement, there will be something even better…. and it'll have a keyboard.

    Google actually missed out on two critical things. Sure, the N1 has an OLED screen and faster CPU, that's potentially good, as long as battery life is actually same or better. I know the OLED screen looks better, but the Droid's laptop-class LCD isn't bad, and the real win is the 854×480 resolution. And CPU wise, I don't have any problems with the Droid's CPU speed on current Android software… I can't imagine the N1 making much of a difference at this point in time.

    The N1, at least as shipped, is just improving the only thing that I find lacking in the Droid: memory. They have the same internal Flash, 512MB. That's a silly-small amount by today's standards… they should have spent the extra $5.00 and put in at least a gigabyte. Particularly because Android currently has no solution, other than root-level hacks, for expanding applications memory out into an SD card. There are good security model reasons for not supporting this on FAT32 partitions, sure, but I should be able to split the format on the SD card, or run an ext3 partition within a FAT32 file, to enable expansion. As it's going, I'm not out of memory yet, but it won't last forever.

    And the N1 further slaps you here by cheesing out and shipping with a 4GB microSDHC card. They really should follow the Droid's example and at least include a 16GB card. Personally, I can't wait until the 32GB cards are out… they're like a year behind schedule at this point.

    If I were just buying a new Verizon phone today, I'd certainly check out the N1. But I'm not sure I'm ready to give up a real keyboard yet. The Droid keyboard isn't perfect, but it's a great alternative to giving up nearly all your screen real-estate, particularly in landscape mode, to the frackin' software keyboard. Sometimes I want to write and actually see what I'm writing, too.

  • sarmae

    I know for a fact Verizon is getting this phone, I have had it reccommended for me by SEVERAL Verizon Tech Reps. I am excited! And I will definetely be in line to pick up this new phone! Forget the driod I want a Nexus!!

  • KevinNYC

    i walked past a Verizon store today and popped in and asked when they are getting the nexus one and the rep said April. i think they will announce on March 23 and maybe Google will take orders, but it won't come to stores until April

    If ATT actually gets the misdirected approval to buy tMobile, then yes, i’ll move my Nexus One to verizon.. even if i have to buy a new one!!!
    ATT has been *nothing but trouble* for users here in western massachusetts!!… it is a lying, deceitful company who chooses to perpetuate poor service and to lie to get more money from us..
