With the HTC Droid Incredible, Verizon nixed the Nexus One from its upcoming phone line-up. Now Sprint is following suit (contrary to what they had us believe), citing the HTC EVO 4G as reason enough to not bother with bringing the Nexus One to its wavelengths either, according to a report over at Gizmodo. With this announcment, all hope for a CDMA Nexus One on a U.S. carrier has gone out the window.
Sure, the Incredible and EVO 4G are both perfectly good — if not better in many respescts — replacements for Google’s flagship handset, but you have to wonder what this spells for the Google Phone and its future. Is it that Google has found the Nexus One to be a failed (yet profitable) experiment? Could it actually be that a Nexus Two is closer to launch then we could believe? Perhaps Google wants to step back and re-evaluate its distribution and customer service models before venturing further into the smart phone market?
Your guess is as good as mine with this one, but one thing we can now say as fact is if you were waiting for an N1 on Sprint, you better start getting excited about the EVO 4G, because that will be all you are getting for now.
