Google launches online store for Android phones

Starting today, Google is taking Android back: Google’s selling Android phones through a unified store, starting with the Nexus One.

Aside from the best-in-class hardware, the potential for newness with the Nexus One was centered around how they’d sell it. And they have taken a fresh approach with the Nexus One, to an extent: This is the first Android phone sold directly by Google. They’ve opened a new store, from which they plan to sell Android phones from a variety of carriers and manufacturers — Verizon is up next, presumably with the Droid—and which will serve as a single, unified storefront for basically every Android phone on the market.
