The Nexus One made its debut as being the first phone sold directly through Google, and right now, the only accessory you can buy through that site is a spare/replacement battery. But what about all the sweet extras like protective covers and gel skins? Plenty of 3rd parties carry those, but it looks as though pretty soon you’ll be able to grab them directly from you local T-Mobile store courtesy of HTC!
Although HTC was left off the branding for the Nexus One itself, it seems as though the Carrier/Manufacturer duo have teamed up to bring accessories for the phone to customers. The picture above comes from TMOtoday from a “trusted source”. Doesn’t look like there is much you can argue about here.
Not only is this a great idea simply from a servicing your customers standpoint, but accessories have high margins, and I’m guessing this is just another way to leverage in-store traffic to drive additional revenue. TMOtoday suggests this COULD be a sign that T-Mobile will carry the Nexus One in-store soon… but I wouldn’t bank on that.
