"Google has quietly canceled plans to release a Verizon version of its Nexus One phone and is instead steering customers toward the HTC Incredible, a phone described as a "Nexus One on steroids" by one analyst. As a result, industry watchers are weighing the news and what it means for the search giant's foray into marketing its own smartphones.

"Customers visiting the Nexus One shopping page recently began seeing a change in its text, which had previously stated that the Verizon Nexus One was coming soon, but now reads: "For Verizon's network, you can buy the Droid Incredible by HTC, a powerful Android phone and similarly feature-packed cousin of the Nexus One."

"Verizon Wireless, the mobile phone joint venture between Verizon Communications and Vodafone Group, will begin offering the well-reviewed HTC Incredible on April 29. HTC also makes the Nexus One for Google (NASDAQ: GOOG), which first launched in January of this year on the T-Mobile network. Since then, Google has expanded to offer an AT&T version of the phone, with a Sprint phone coming soon."
