Buy Google Nexus One from Amazon Prime Day, Amazon Cyber Monday and Black Friday Now

One of the big things about the Nexus One when it launched was that you could only buy the device directly from Google. This was the first direct sales Android device and by most accounts, the handset flopped.

One of the issues was that for a time Google was changing an early termination fee in addition to the fee form the carrier if the user opted out of the contract. Google has now stopped selling the Nexus one through its own website.

Google is now selling the device through retail outlets and high street stores. The reason cited for the move according to a Google spokesman is that it became clear users wanted to get hands on the device before ordering it, thus the Google direct store didn’t do well.
