Nexus One Knocks G1 Off of Google's Developer Perch

Paul Lilly

Move over, G1, and make room for the Nexus One. No, we haven't traveled back in time - the Nexus One, which Google recently retired from its online one-item store, is back in unlocked form for developers.

"We've always offered unlocked phones for direct sale to registered Android Developers," Google wrote in a blog post . "As of today, the Developer Phone is the Nexus One at a price of $529. To see the details or order a phone, you need to sign in to your Android developer account and click on the 'Development Phones' link."

The Nexus One replaces the aging G1 as Google's Developer Phone, which the search giant describes as a "good choice both for people who want to build Android applications using either the SDK or the NDK," as well as "those who want to experiment with modified versions of the Android platform."

Welcome back, Nexus One.
