In other hyped-gadget news, it looks as though a CDMA-version of the HTC Nexus One could be shipping to Verizon Wireless in the U.S. and Vodafone across the pond as soon as next month.

According to Digitimes, the Chinese-language Economic Daily News is reporting that this new edition of Google's smartphone will be picked up and marketed by Verizon starting either by the end of March or early April.

So does this mean that Verizon will be handling a CDMA version and T-Mobile will be dealing out the GSM edition of the Nexus One? It could be true, but nothing is certain until Verizon confirms this rumor or not.

  • It's Vodafone

    There's no such thing as Vodaphone.

    There should be an announcement regarding the Verizon
    release date on March 23rd at the CTIA Wireless
    convention.

    Been told by two helpful (and anonymous) VZW folks, one in sales and one in tech support, that March 23 is the date; the tech said he'd already been to training.

    I think that the performance of this phone will be much better on Verizon than on T-Mobile. I tried the Moto Droid on Verizon for 29 days and found it to be excellent. I am an iPhone user now and like the Android based phone better and the built in GPS is great rather than having to drag a GPS on US business trips.

    I was just at the Verizon site, and I did a search
    for
    "Nexus One". It redirected me to
    http://google.com/phone.
    I am really curious if the phone is only going to
    be available through google.
