Is Google competing with their own vendors?

January 5, 2010 Leave a comment

Wow, Mark Sigal raises a very valid point that with the release of Nexus One, Google is now directly competing with the mobile phone hardware vendors and service providers they said they would not — and should not — compete with.

I’ll go further and say that Google selling the Nexus One is like Microsoft picking out just one hardware vendor, and then partnering with that vendor to sell hardware systems directly from microsoft.com. If you were the other hardware vendors, wouldn’t that piss you off?

O’Reilly’s take on Google’s Nexus One

I haven’t had the pleasure of seeing one yet, but this device sounds like a great iPhone competitor. Surprisingly though, the monthly price seems a little higher than the initial iPhone deal with Apple and AT&T.
