Google is closing its Nexus One online store

Google has admitted that, while adoption of the Android operating system has been better than expected, the Google web store for Android phones hasn’t gone so well.

In a blog post, Google’s engineering VP Andy Rubin said the web store had “remained a niche channel for early adopters” but that “many customers like a hands-on experience before buying a phone”.

The company says it’ll stop selling handsets online when the Nexus One is available in more stores. After this happens, the web store will transformed into a showcase for Android phones.
