Vodafone only have 1000 Nexus Ones

UPDATE: This has been confirmed by a source inside of Vodafone.

Time to fire up the Rumour Mill. I have received word that Vodafone have only been able to secure 1,000 Nexus Ones and that they will only be sold online & to businesses as they are an ‘End Of Life (EOL)’ device.

It seems plausible confirmed.

yes that is all correct but vodafone do not want to over stock because of the launche of the shit useless iphone 4 with its 3 new things it can do.
i just got an upgrade to nexus today cant wait for it next week, so yes vodafone is EOL for now but only because of the launch of the iphone 4, there has been a huge demand for the nexus so im sure they will still release it along side of the “worst phone” known to mand kind the iphone 4….

Anyone konws why the Nexus One Vodafone runs only has 256MB internal memory? Thought it’s typo first but checked with customer service and they responded that “the model of the Nexus One we have is the one with the 256 MB internal memory”. My konwledge is N1 has 512MB internal memory, isn’t it?

It’s a kernel issue. It’s fixed in 2.2

You don’t really need any after sale support from Vodafone other then your warranty tbh.

You can get all your software updates directly from Google itself. And if they do have Vodafone software on em, you’re best off removing it either way. The only thing you’d ever need is APN settings, which you can get from here anyway.

Vodafones after sale support is generally pretty terrible unless you’re at specific stores.

that doesnt sound like a bad thing afterall, does it. i mean, that should translate to some form of exclusivity (u wont see everyone in the room holding the nexus one, cant quite say the say for the iphone though); and assuming it doesnt affect the after-sale support and stuff, things should go quite fine for it, right?!

what does end-of-life device means for us?

Buzz Moody
Valued Guest

Usually it means that after the 1,000 are sold out, they aren’t getting anymore. But they’ll still provide support/OTA updates for the device.

Buzz Moody

Yeah I had a bit of a giggle as well.

I was planning on getting one of these, but not at the $79 cap. It looks like I’ll have to grey-import one.

1,000 Nexus Ones, Won’t be seeing a room/table of people pulling out their Nexus Ones then….but the iPhone on the other hand.

Buzz Moody

Depends what you mean by ‘but the iPhone on the other hand’, because depending on what hand you hold it in, it’s not going to work.

So make sure your ‘other hand’ is your right one. 😛

What does ‘End of Life’ device mean? Not discontinued, surely?

Buzz Moody
Valued Guest

It means it’s on the way out.

Buzz Moody
Valued Guest

Doubt it, but hopefully. Wait it out for the Droid X (Milestone X, sounds terrible).

That number would explain the fairly low key launch!
