[Update: Accessories]Nexus One Now Officially “The” Dev Phone, Offered in Market Dashboard for $529


Google’s halted the sale of the Google Nexus one on their once-vibrant Phone site, but that doesn’t mean they’ve stopped selling the phone. If you’re a developer with a Google account with access to the market dashboard, the Nexus One is now officially available for order as Google’s new official developer phone (ADP3) for $529.


The Nexus One succeeds the T-Mobile G1/HTC Dream (ADP1) and the Google ION/HTC Magic (ADP2). You can sign in to your account now and find the “Development Phones” link to get started. Note that the device ships with Android 2.1, but will upgrade to 2.2 after you’ve had it on for a while.

[Update]: Google’s updated their original post to address the question regarding accessories. For now, the accessories for the Nexus One are only available directly from HTC Europe’s online store. They said they’d update everyone with more details soon, so hopefully an option opens up soon here in the states.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. Ships with 2.1 or 2.2 ?

  2. Anyone know if both versions are available, or just the original AWS one?

  3. It ships with 2.2 but updates to 2.2 after a while? Handy.

  4. I believe Quentyn meant 2.1

  5. Whoops, I meant 2.1, as Soul_Est said. Thanks for the spot.

  6. Does it say whether the phone will still be using an AMOLED display or a Super LCD display?

  7. It appears that developers can only buy the T-Mobile 3G compatible version, the AT&T 3G version is not on the site for ordering.

  8. @Dave Looks like it’s the AWS version. I put up a screenshot:


  9. It seems that there may be time-dialation involved between the shipment time and the OTA updates, or it may be that because the flow of time is somehow affected by a black hole in close proximity to the Earth that the device is shipped after you receive the update to 2.2. So, in effect, “it ships with 2.2” and “you get updates after a while” end up being true statements but are separate and are not the premises of each other; however they are autonomous facts.

    Yeah, I don’t understand how you could get a phone shipped with 2.2 and then get 2.2 again, unless it was an update to 2.2 (e.g. 2.2.3 upgraded to 2.2.87)

  10. So what ever happened to the Enterprise version which was going to have a hard touch qwerty keyboard? For that matter, whatever happened to qwerty keyboards, similar to G1 for other HTC phones generally????

  11. Looks like AWS (T-Mobile) only and AMOLED screen.

    From http://android.brightstarcorp.com/index_adp3.htm (seems to require dev account):

  12. I love this phone, just awesome!

  13. The burning question for current Nexus One owners:

    Can you buy accessories from Google?

    An official OEM docks are going for huge premiums on eBay.

  14. Do you know if you loose the warranty if you root the Nexus One or install CustomROM´s?

  15. @Nate: According to the warranty documentation, yes. You root it, the warranty is voided. I believe that’s only if your phone has a software defect. I believe the hardware is still covered.

  16. Like C, I would also like to know if you can buy OEM accessories from Google. I want a car dock, but don’t want to pay $150 on ebay for it.

  17. “No root access
    Bootloader locked
    Fastboot NOT enabled”

    How is this a ADP phone again?

    Maybe Google was just kidding when they said, “and those who want to experiment with modified versions of the Android platform”

  18. @Nate: the only time that users rooted their phone and google said it wouldn’t void the warranty was when Froyo got released when it was in it’s testing stages… They said that if users had manually updated and rooted their phone they would still get the OTA update… I am guessing because google actually had the code available on their servers, and it wasn’t a ROM hack.

  19. @Nate: i could be wrong though lol

  20. @David Shellabarger

    Yep, it’s sad. It seems we are being forced to get used to wireless carriers disallowing devices on their networks unless this sort of criteria is met by the manufacturer. We are stuck in a really really bad downward spiral of ‘loophole’ exploitation wherein carriers unknowingly (wink wink) allow ‘hackability’ to provide the flexibility needed by developers.

    It’s sad because the ‘me me me’ userbase is beginning to feel justified throwing ideological fits when a device like the droidX comes out with appropriately complex barriers to hackability. In my view, this sort of ‘up front’ approach to defining a device’s suitability for developers is healthy. The ‘wink wink’ loophole approach being embraced by the majority of active voices in the android community is frighteningly dangerous because it allows the carriers and handset manufacturers to maintain the illusion of “openness” (through lax barriers to hackability) until one day they might decide to slam the door hard….a la droidX.

    We should be reserving our frustration against devices like the droidX for buying decision guidance ONLY. Taking an ideological stand against unhackable devices is the WRONG approach. Taking an ideological stand against “developer phones” that don’t provide needed developer functionality is the right approach.

    Fortunately, the recent DMCA assessment activity is on our side. A class action suit citing these recent rulings related to the legality of “jailbreaking and unlocking” could prove successful. Gathering the resources and traction for that sort of case is another story entirely. It’s a jungle out there.

  21. @Stephen If I remember right you don´t loose the warranty if you root the ADP1/2 or install CustomROM´s on them.

    I´m living in a country where I can buy the N1 via Vodafone (thats much cheaper) and I only wanted to buy the dev phone because I don´t want to loose my warranty…

  22. Looks like canadian developers have been left out in the cold without an AT&T version of the dev phone to purchase.

  23. Thank you GOOGLE!
    I am so glad I can get another nexus one!

  24. @Nate actually you can root your phone, and not unlock the boot loader, therefore keeping your warranty intact.
    Rooting is fine, just unlocking the boot loader is what causes the warranty to go bye bye..

  25. What’s the tmus radio shown in the image provided by dirble

  26. The Nexus One dev phone is only the T-Mobile 3G bands. The site says:

    (3 UMTS Bands (900/AWS/2100 MHz)

    So if you are looking to buy a Nexus One for AT&T, Rogers, Telus, or Bell in North America then keep looking, cause this one ain’t it.

  27. @Sean…. but it is usable in all of Europe

  28. Do you know if those accessories are available through any online store to Canada ?

  29. Good evening! you look: chubby porn free female porn stars or flash porn marvel porn and free tera patrick porn porn vidios or simpson cartoon porn . I’m looking forward to seeing you again!

  30. Good afternoon! it for you: porn sounds all web porn or free porn sharing sites porn website password and vibra porn boondocks porn or nudist porn . See you later!
