starglider29a writes with news that Google and Verizon Wireless have abandoned plans for a partnership that would bring the Nexus One to the carrier’s network. “Without a Verizon partnership, Google loses access to the carrier’s more than 90 million customers, potentially blocking the phone from gaining more widespread popularity. The breakdown of the deal signals Verizon may view Google as a competitor rather than a partner when it comes to Nexus One sales, which are probably at less than half a million since the phone’s January debut, said BGC Partners’s Colin Gillis.” A Google spokesman said, “We won’t be selling a Nexus One with Verizon and this is a reflection of the amazing innovation happening across the open Android ecosystem.” In a brief blog post, they recommend a similar, Android-based phone from HTC for customers who want Verizon service.
