We’re not sure if this was just to hold people over until Verizon finally adopts the Nexus One, or if they are replacing it with the introduction of their HTC Droid Incredible altogether, but Google’s phone storefront urges interested customers to pick up the Nexus One’s “cousin” instead of getting a Nexus One.

For Verizon’s network, you can buy the Droid Incredible by HTC, a powerful Android phone and similarly feature-packed cousin of the Nexus One.


While some may argue that the Incredible is a lot more desirable than the Nexus One itself, I can’t imagine there wouldn’t be some left in the bunch that wants that specific piece of hardware. Have you already made this move yourself without Google’s suggestion?

[Update]: We’ve contacted Verizon to clear up the issue on whether or not the Nexus One will ever be available. We’ll update you if we hear anything.

[Update]: Google was the first to step up with a response regarding our concerns: the Nexus One will no longer be headed to Verizon Wireless.

We won’t be selling a Nexus One with Verizon, and this is a reflection of the amazing innovation happening across the open Android ecosystem. Verizon Wireless customers who want an Android phone with the power of the Nexus One can get the Droid Incredible by HTC, which can be pre-ordered now and which will be available in Verizon Wireless stores on Thursday, April 29th.
