When the Nexus One was no longer being offered through Google’s online store, it pretty much signaled the end to this favorite Android phone for everyone – forcing those interested in it to look elsewhere. However, Google decided to bring back the phone for one last time to Android developers for their opportunity to scope this highly prized handset. From the looks of it now, the demand for this developer friendly phone is pretty high since the initial stock of inventory quickly depleted in the course of a couple of weeks. Now we’re once again presented with the realization that the Nexus One is sold out, but luckily, it has been placed on back-order by HTC – so there are still some units coming down the road. At this point though, there is no indication as to the time frame of when we can expect to see inventory to come back – especially when there is a worldwide shortage of AMOLED panels.
