Google hadn’t given us a solid time frame for when we could expect to see the Nexus One in third party retail stores when they announced they’d be shutting down their web store, but there appears to be a little-known third-party site giving us the first indication of that transition.

i Wireless – an authorized T-Mobile reseller – seems to be one of the first outlets in the United States to offer the Nexus One at their own subsidized price and for their own terms. For $299.95 after a rebate and a 2-year commitment, you can purchase the T-Mobile compatible device and use it however you see fit (there are a lot of plan and upgrade restrictions if you purchase the device subsidized from Google themselves).

We still don’t know if either AT&T or T-Mobile themselves will be carrying the device on their own site or in-stores yet, but at least we can take from this the hint that Google may finally be preparing to close up shop for their own phone distribution outlet.
