Google has just killed off all hope of a sequel to the Nexus One smartphone. Released at the start of this year, the Nexus One met with critical praise and lackluster sales. Since Google's intent behind the phone was to prove they could design a solid smartphone on their own, the company still deems it a success.

In fact, CEO Eric Schmidt considers it such a success that he is killing all hope of a Nexus Two launch. The Telegraph reports that he called up Google's board and said, 'OK, it worked. Congratulations - we're stopping'.

Schmidt noted that people criticized Google "heavily" for launching the Nexus One. Android is an open OS, and Google having a "pet phone" brought out the jealousy in every non-HTC manufacturer. Google may have decided that having their own line of smartphones wasn't worth the cost in goodwill. Or in dollars.
