Today in a blog post written by chief Android architect Andy Rubin, Google announced a number of changes for its Nexus One Android handset. Google said that first it is going to increase the retail availability of the Nexus One with its retail partners both here and abroad. Once it is satisfied with the retail availability of the Nexus One, Google will stop selling it via the web store, which it will close. Rubin said, "While the global adoption of the Android platform has exceeded our expectations, the web store has not. It’s remained a niche channel for early adopters, but it’s clear that many customers like a hands-on experience before buying a phone, and they also want a wide range of service plans to chose from." Sprint and Verizon Wireless both recently cancelled their planned roll-outs of the Nexus One, pointing to superior alternatives instead. Google didn't say where the Nexus One will become available, such as through T-Mobile and AT&T stores, or other outlets such as Best Buy or Radioshack.
