Summary:

If I had a dollar for every phone rumor I’ve seen, I could buy several of these Verizon Nexus Ones that have hit the FCC. Detective work indicates the phone is a CDMA version of the Nexus One, due to hit Verizon at some point.

The Nexus One is the hottest Android phone available, at least until the Desire hits user’s hands. In the U.S. the Nexus One is being sold direct by Google for use on the T-Mobile network. The carrier is also selling the Nexus One. It is known that Verizon will be supporting the Nexus One at some point, and the FCC is leading us to believe that may be pretty soon.

The unwiredview has spotted the CDMA version of a phone made by HTC (maker of the Nexus One), with a model number that implies this is the Verizon Nexus One. The current Nexus One is model #PB99100, and the new model at the FCC is model #PB99300.

As a Verizon customer, and as one who covets the Nexus One, this is great news if it pans out. The Nexus One is an outstanding phone, and coupling that with the Verizon network would be the perfect match.

Google’s Mobile Strategy: Understanding the Nexus One

  1. So would you be trading your BlackBerry Storm for the Nexus One? The Nexus One is a great phone with Android OS. I can see this selling very well on Verizon.

    1. Who knows what I will end up doing. I can’t keep my hands off all these cool phones. :)

  2. James, I understand why you would desire the Nexus One. Indeed, it might replace my aging Storm.

    You also mention the Desire. PMI, but I thought (perhaps incorrectly) the Desire only supports European (not US) 3G bands, actually has somewhat less features than the Nexus one (e.g., no active noise cancellation), and probably won’t be coming to Verizon. Or am I incorrect? Thanks. Genghis

    1. HTC will likely be bringing the Desire to the US when they have a carrier pick it up. I’m pretty sure someone will.
