Today marks the end of a dream for Google's phone shop, as EuroDroid puts it, with the last of Google's stock of Nexus One handsets sold. "Today, if you try to visit Google’s online phone shop to buy an unlocked Nexus One, you’re greeted by a virtual CLOSED sign", only a few days after I reported that Google's last shipment from HTC of Nexus One handsets had arrived. In EuroDroid's words: "That didn’t last very long at all."
This is certainly not the end for the Nexus One however, as Vodafone and KT will still be offering the phone for some time. Google will continue to sell the handset to registered Android developers so that they can have an unmodified version of Android to develop their apps on.
Live in the US? Don't give up yet, as the phone should still be available from cellphone importers and online sellers. Additionally, Google also mentioned it may be released in other areas (which may include the US) "based on local market conditions."
AndroidandMe notes that thanks to "the two carriers, the Nexus One is available at subsidized prices in Australia, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, United Kingdom, and South Korea."
