    The Nexus One had an outstanding amount of hype prior to its release – and rightfully so – but sales of Google’s first phone in their new distribution channel haven’t taken off and analysts are noticing.

    I think the biggest problem the Nexus One is having is that Google decided to sell it exclusively themselves. If they were in most of (heck, one) of the carrier's stores they'd be selling a ton of them. It's a quality device, it's just that people want to mess around with it hands on before they plunk down the cash for it.

    Should Google change their mode of sale I could foresee a huge bump in sales - I'm sure they see this path as well.

    If there would be more plans to choose from, I 'might' have chosen to stay with T-Mobile, despite their plans offering a bit less features and coverage and cost a bit more compared to Sprint. For me, the Phone is worth it. But having only one plan offered, my decision to go with Sprint is Sealed. Come early April, I'm switching carriers.

    It would sell more if the screen doesn't spontaneously crack, impervious to dust getting under the screen, and had a better touch screen sensor... and it they allowed T-Mobile to sell their phones in store.

    Seems to me they are selling it at exactly the rate they want at this point in time.

    Google aint dumb. There is a method to their madness. I think the Tmobile thing was just one big beta program before they went postal on the iPhone by releasing handsets for all major carriers...
