The Nexus One sold through Google’s website is a Google Experience phone. That is – it runs a stock version of Android with no customizations out of the box. That makes perfect sense since it isn’t branded as an HTC device. But something else makes sense in a different way: Verizon’s Nexus One, still sold through the Google website, might come pre-packaged with HTC Sense.
The above screenshot is supposedly a leaked screenshot of Verizon’s Equipment Guide. You can clearly see:
- Top line indicates ONLY sold at google.com/phones (should be “phone” singular)
- 4 bullets from the bottom left it says “Sense UI (User Interface)”
Whether this is legit, typ0-free document we don’t know, but hopefully we’ll find out soon. I’m guessing a LOT of people have been waiting for the Nexus One to hit VZW and Voda since they were announced as eventual partners the first day.
