The HTC Incredible Really Is Verizon's Nexus One

It's curious that after announcing the Nexus One would be coming to Verizon, Google's now directing people to the HTC Incredible instead. Then again, Verizon never said they'd carry the Nexus One. UPDATE: Google confirms no N1 on Verizon:

We won't be selling a Nexus One with Verizon, and this is a reflection of the amazing innovation happening across the open Android ecosystem. Verizon Wireless customers who want an Android phone with the power of the Nexus One can get the Droid Incredible by HTC.

Well, that's that. It's still interesting, though, that Google's pushing a phone running a custom interface, when, historically anyway, they've left people behind on the latest Android updates. Guess we'll see if that changes.

Last we heard, Sprint's still getting the Nexus, though, if you're desperate to avoid AT&T and T-Mobile. [Google, Thanks Kayway8!]
