Google Changes Way to Sell its New Smartphone

For Nexus One, the new product of Google, the company had said it plans to take a new, and potentially risky, approach to selling its handsets — direct to consumers through its Web site rather than through carriers with heavy subsidies.

However, recently it is reported that Google is talking with T-Mobile about the possibility of selling the Nexus One, its upcoming smartphone, at a discounted price for consumers that sign up for the carrier’s service– similar to the model rival Apple uses to sell its popular iPhone in AT&T stores in addition to its own Web site.

The potential deal would allow consumers who sign up for T-Mobile service to buy the Nexus One at a discounted price.

Among the major carriers, T-Mobile has the longest-standing partnership with Google. Google is also discussing similar terms with other carriers.

Late last year, the carrier began selling the T-Mobile G1 — Google’s first Android smartphone. Since then, T-Mobile has released three more Android-based devices — the Motorola Cliq, Samsung Behold 2 and T-Mobile MyTouch 3G — more than any other wireless operator.

In recent days, the giant has given a version of the new handset to its employees, seeking feedback before its launch early next year.

This news is from China electronics manufacturer.
