Google Launches Nexus One Smartphone


Jan 10, 2010

Google launched Nexus One mobile phone on January 5th 2010. In a bid to grasp mobile phone market share and to promote Android Smartphone platform, Google partnered with HTC to develop and market smart phone under the brand name “Nexus One”. Clearly this is an effort to get android platform to even more users, maybe as a part of Google’s strategy to acquire larger base of users to present mobile advertisements and apps and continue growth of Google’s ads revenue generation in changing technology scenario. With its own platform, Google can present advertisements freely to users which could have not been the case with Iphone or other Smartphones available.
