Guess This Makes Google’s Nexus One the Kin of “Superphones”

Google has nixed its Nexus One “superphone.” In a short announcement quietly posted to the Nexus One blog Friday (when the tech media’s attention was largely focused elsewhere), the company said its most recent shipment of the phone was also its last.

“Once we sell these devices, the Nexus One will no longer be available online from Google,” Google (GOOG) explained.

Not much of an obituary for a phone so highly touted at its launch, but then its time on this earth was so short. In the end, Google’s first–and perhaps only–venture into the handset world ended in less than a year.
