Nexus one - RIP
Google shuts door on Nexus One, and all future Nexus Models!!! This is my take on it! With the death of Google Nexus One model, dies the freedom of consumers. With Nexus one, Google was swimming upstream. They tried to take on the likes of ATT and Verizon head on. They sold the phone, without subsidy from any of the carriers, and of course later there was a tie up with T-Mobile. They tried to...
