Rumor: Google Nexus One coming to a Verizon near you, March 23

According to Neowin and “sources close to the matter” (ie. un-named Google employee) the Google Nexus One will be dropping on Verizon Wireless on March 23, possibly during CTIA. This is by no means confirmed by Verizon or Google.

This rumored release date for Verizon does fall in line with the Nexus One’s order page that says Spring 201o. There is no rumored pricing yet but I would imagine it to be on par with the current, subsidized price of $179.99.

Something else interesting to note is that the HTC Incredible is rumored to be launched during the same time on Verizon. The HTC Incredible is another “high-end” Android 2.1 device, with a 1GHz Snapdragon that runs Sense UI and is basically a modified Nexus One. It may be possible that Google and HTC will be competing with themselves again on the same carrier with almost the same device. It looks like even after the idea that all U.S. Android devices will be running 2.1 soon, consumers might be just as confused with the different yet similar choices for devices. It’s madness.
