"Google stepped up its attack on the smartphone market on Tuesday, introducing a new touch-screen handset called Nexus One that is widely seen as a rival to Apple’s iPhone. Related

"Google also announced that it would sell Nexus One, which it called a superphone, exclusively through a new online store beginning Tuesday. The company, which earns the vast majority of its revenue from advertising, said it was dipping its toes in the phone retail business as a way to broaden the availability of phones running Android, the company’s mobile phone operating system.

"Consumers will be able to buy the Nexus One for $529 unlocked or for $179 with a two-year calling plan from T-Mobile. Google said that the Nexus One would be available on Verizon Wireless in the United States and on Vodafone in Europe later this year. It said it hoped to add other devices and carriers to the direct-to-consumer program in the future."
