    Now that we know that the online/google model of selling this thing is going to be a fail, lets hope they start pushing these devices out to the normal retail channels. The biggest flaw in the whole online only concept is the average user wants to see a display model, talk to sales reps about the phone and its capabilities, and actually handle it before just ordering a device online that they've never seen other than internet pictures.

    I buy most of my phones online or unlocked so this is nothing new to me, but the average user is most likely going to balk at this type of buying experience. I hope Google makes some changes to their sales model because I'd hate to see such a nice device end up as an epic fail. I have long been waiting for a worthy device to make the switch to Android and I say without hesitation the Nexus One is that device and it should be for others who are contemplating as well.

    i agree, but then again its only on T-Mo which doesnt have the base that Verizon did for the Droid or AT&T did for the iPhone

    slightly handicapped

    i usually like to get a feel for the phone first before i sign a deal on a phone for 2 years, but with this one i would go the online route.

    Since they're an online only outlet, they may need to ditch the restock fee. If you buy from a retailer, you can handle a demo model, etc.... Like aggie, (not nearly to his extent) I'm a bit of a gadget whore, so I didn't mind getting it online.

    I am with you aggieman. I am hoping AT&T comes out with the google phone. I want to be able to pop my sim card out of my iPhone, put it in the g phone and experience android. I'll be patient, read the reviews and move or not move depending on what's available.
