The launch is less than a week away from now. But weirdly enough, Google is still maintaining a studied silence over the launch. However, as we have been hearing from sources close to the product, the Nexus One is indeed coming on January 5 – at 9 AM to be precise.
Apparently, it is T-Mobile that will be handling the network for Nexus One. According to internal documents circulated at T-Mobile, the “Google Phone” shall be handled by their company. However, their role shall be restricted to “billing, coverage, features and rate plans, as we have previously stated. All troubleshooting and exchanges will be managed by Google and HTC. Launch is ‘early January.’”
This is interesting. Is T-Mobile an exclusive partner or are there more networks gearing up for the launch? Also, if the launch on Jan 5 is only to a limited circle, then is there really a necessity for the company to ready themselves up? We do not have the answers to these questions right now, and hopefully Google will come up with an answer sooner. Till then, revel in the suspense!
