Submission + - Google Drops Verizon Wireless As Nexus One Partner->

starglider29a writes: Google Inc. (GOOG) has backed away from a plan to make its Nexus One smartphone compatible with Verizon Wireless, the largest mobile carrier in the U.S.

Google said Monday in a blog post that customers waiting for the Nexus One to be available on Verizon's network should go the carrier's website, where they can order the Droid Incredible, a "cousin" device made by Taiwan's HTC Corp (HTCXF, 2498.TW).

The announcement was seen as a blow to Google's only branded phone, as the device will no longer be available to Verizon's more than 90 million subscribers.

"Nexus One is a flop. Everyone knows that now," said BGC Partners' Colin Gillis.
