The desire to see the hot Nexus One phone on the Verizon network is not under question, given the number of inquiries I am getting about it. There are obviously thousands of Verizon customers anxious to see the Nexus One hit the carrier. Unfortunately, neither Google nor Verizon are giving definitive answers about when the Nexus One will hit Verizon, other than “real soon now.” I have been hitting up every source of information about Verizon products I have, and that is quite a few, and while none of them can go on record, I have been told the hot phone will hit Verizon in April.
That’s nothing particularly new — we’ve heard a number of rumors lately that the Nexus One on Verizon will be appearing any day now. Google and Verizon have always said the Nexus One would launch in the spring, so April makes sense and fits the rumors I am hearing. What is new is that I have multiple sources telling me that when it is launched, consumers are going to be surprised. I am being led to believe the Verizon version of the Nexus One may contain something that the versions on other U.S. carriers lack. That has not appeared anywhere so I hope these sources are correct. They are in positions to know so we’ll just have to wait a little longer.
