Google Nexus One Is No Longer Available For Sale

It looks like Google’s days of selling phones are over (at least for now):

This is tied to a blog post where Google basically admitted defeat in terms of selling phones direct:

While the global adoption of the Android platform has exceeded our expectations, the web store has not. It’s remained a niche channel for early adopters, but it’s clear that many customers like a hands-on experience before buying a phone, and they also want a wide range of service plans to chose from.

I would be one of those people as I want to play with the phone before I buy it. I suspect that Google may come back with something else in the future as Google doesn’t strike me as the type of company to depend on others to sell their products.
