Contrary to popular belief Google is apparently getting the Nexus S ready for sale at Best Buy this holiday season. The retailer leaked an ad that was spotted before being pulled. The Galaxy Tab is arriving in time for the holidays, and was unboxed on video.
The industry is abuzz this morning about a post from AndroidandMe.com claiming Samsung will hold a press conference Nov. 8 to introduce the Google Nexus Two. The phone is a follow-up to the Nexus One, of course, which was an ambitious attempt by Google to loosen the carriers’ grip on how phones are sold. But the Nexus One failed to overcome a host of pitfalls, including a lack of brick-and-mortar distribution and Google’s inability to handle customer service issues. As Kevin writes over at GigaOM today, the Nexus Two could still help change the way phones are sold, but that would likely require Google to step up and subsidize handsets instead of carriers. And with no way of guaranteeing money on the back end with service contracts, that’s just not going to happen.
Rumors of a follow-up handset to Google’s Nexus One phone are filtering through the web with Nov. 8 the reported date for such news. Could a Nexus Two succeed in reducing carrier control where the Nexus One failed? It could if Google adjusts these five aspects.
The Nexus One is no longer available for purchase directly from Google. For more information on how to purchase the Nexus One, check out our help center.

When the Nexus One first launched, I called it the best Android phone yet. What a fool I was to jump to that conclusion. Let’s just say that topping my list of things to do now that I’m feeling better is to get a new BlackBerry.

Google plans to close its online retail store for the Nexus One handset in the U.S. and instead pursue the mobile operator retail model it uses in Europe with Vodafone. A failed experiment? Perhaps, but at least now Google won’t be competing with its partners.

First the Verizon Nexus One fell through, and now comes word that Sprint will not be offering Google’s flagship phone, either. There are better Android handsets out there anyway, so this is not a big loss. Strangely, an surely mistaken tip has Sprint getting the iPhone.
