Google’s launch of the Nexus One smart phone has been the biggest tech product to hit store shelves this year. The best news was when the company announced that the phone could be sold without a carrier contract.
The device didn’t get the best reviews when consumers complained about the poor 3G connections and customer support issues. Google has acknowledge the problems by saying, “We’ve worked closely with our Nexus One launch partners to make support available through a variety of channels. This is a new way to purchase and support a mobile phone, and we’re committed to sorting out the few kinks that do exist.”
The Nexus One has been forecast to sell five or six million units this year and generate between $2.6 billion and $3.2 billion. Google is selling the phone for $529 on its own or $179 if purchased through T-Mobile.
