Google to Nexus One Devs: Where the Hell Were You Three Months Ago?

Consumers didn’t much care for Google’s Nexus One, but Android developers are evidently crazy for it. A few weeks after discontinuing consumer sales of the Nexus One, Google has exhausted its supply of developer-only handsets.

“A couple of weeks ago, we arranged that registered developers could buy an unlocked Nexus One via their publisher page in Android Market,” Android developer advocate Tim Bray wrote in blog post this week. “We think it’s a good development platform and a nice phone. Apparently, you agree. Somewhat too many of you, in fact; we blew through the (substantial) initial inventory in almost no time, and they’re back-ordered from HTC, who are doing a pretty good job of managing runaway success amid a worldwide AMOLED shortage. Everyone appreciates that it’s important to the platform to get phones in the hands of developers, so we’re working hard on re-stocking the shelves; stand by.”

Ironic, isn’t it, that now that there’s actually demand for the Nexus One, Google’s unable to meet it?

I think the NSA has a job to do and we need the NSA. But as (physicist) Robert Oppenheimer said, “When you see something that is technically sweet, you go ahead and do it and argue about what to do about it only after you’ve had your technical success. That is the way it was with the atomic bomb.”
