Drum roll, please … We’ve known for a while that the Nexus One would be coming to Verizon. We just didn’t know when. Well it seems that we have finally gotten a date. March 23 is the date that the much awaited Nexus One reportedly will be available. According to an anonymous source:
The Nexus One, originally released on T-Mobile in January, has passed FCC inspection for use on Verizon’s CDMA network and according to a Google worker who wishes to remain anonymous it will be made available on March 23.
We don’t know how much it’s going to cost on the Verizon Network, but currently the Nexus one is selling for $529 unlocked, or $179 with a two year contract from T-mobile.
When HTC announced the Desire last week at Mobile World Congress, it basically was billed as the Nexus One, with Sense (and a track pad to boot). But those of us with Nexus Ones knew it would only be a matter of time before we’d get to play, and that day is here.
Paul from MoDaCo has been a key player in the Android ROM community, and he’s got a version of the Desire’s ROM up and running on the Nexus One. If you’re not squeamish about rooting and hacking and all that jazz, head here, read the instructions, and give it a shot. We’ll be poring over this ROM for a little while and sharing our impressions. So stay tuned, everybody. (And thanks to everyone who sent this in.)
There’s the number. You can now call Google directly about any issues with your Nexus One.
This is a big step for Google. Can they handle live support? Have you called yet? Was it a good or bad experience? Tell us about it in the comment section!
