The Legend never dies, Nexus One available for developers
Recently we heard that Google has stopped the shipping of the one of the best Android devices of all time, the Google Nexus One. But they stopped it for consumers, not for developers. Google has announced that the Nexus One would remain available for developers. Have a look on what Google is saying:
We’ve always offered unlocked phones for direct sale to registered Android Developers. As of today, the Developer Phone is the Nexus One, at a price of $529. To see the details or order a phone, you need to sign in to your Android developer account and click on the “Development Phones” link.The Nexus One combines an up-to-the-minute platform (Android 2.2), modern hardware, and the pure Google Experience software suite. It’s a good choice both for people who want to build Android applications using either the SDK or the NDK, and those who want to experiment with modified versions of the Android platform. Note that the Nexus One still ships with Android 2.1 but will download 2.2 soon after you turn it on; make sure you’re near a fast network.As well as being an outstanding developer platform, it’s a really nice everyday phone; we’re really happy to have connected the right dots to make this happen.
If you need the Nexus One directly from Google, then become a developer by paying $25 as a registration fee. The developers Nexus One is only available in T-Mobile flavor. So folks what are you waiting for? If you need the Nexus One, then go for it.
Finally, Google realized that the Nexus One is the best smartphone for developers.
