It was a sad day last month when Google announced that they would no longer sell the Googlephone, the Nexus One, through their website. But wait! The company’s now offering the Nexus One as a developer phone, unlocked, for $US529.
In a post on the Android Developers blog, Tim Bray delivered the good news that the Nexus One would be replacing the G1 as the official Google Developer Phone. That means developers, or anyone else who’s been longing for the Nexus One, can order the phone for $US529 through their Android developer account and use it on any carrier.
The phone ships with Android 2.1 but will upgrade to Froyo upon booting up. So good work, Google Jawas, it’s always nice to see a familiar Android polished off and up for sale again. [Android Developers via Geek]
