Google Will Be Only Seller Of Nexus One Gphone

The Nexus One aka Gphone will only be sold by Google when it is offered to the public next month, according to T Mobile. The two companies will share support for the phone and T Mobile will be the carrier for the phone.

This should provide an interesting test of Google's ability to sell a physical product and manage support for it. Given the limited support for their other products, this could be the challenge of the year for Google.
