Head on over to http://www.google.com/phone/ right now (unless you caught it when the support portion was briefly available) to see 3D demos of the Nexus One, order one of your very own (complete with engraving) for $529.00 + Tax, and generally bask in the glow of a Google website that shows they're now completely and totally serious about the mobile phone space. Non-US citizens: we're sorry, but it looks like you're going to have to wait.

Looks like they'll be adding options to purchase the Nexus One with T-Mobile or Vodaphone soon-ish, not to mention the Droid on Verizon. You check out with Google Checkout and can have it FedEx'd overnight - though when it ships is (on my order at least) still a little fuzzy. Check out our Liveblog for more info

Plenty of "wow factor", just lost the impact because of all the leaks.

Ordered mine right away, can't wait for it to get here! :)

still getting this error: "We are currently unable to process your request for service with T-Mobile. - T-Mobile's servers are busy or unreachable. - You can try again later, or you can purchase the unlocked phone without service."

EPIC FAIL on the roll out

THis is a great phone, many people want one, i have tried now over 20 times to purchase this phone and keep getting the error "We are currently unable to process your request for service with T-Mobile. - T-Mobile's servers are busy or unreachable. - You can try again later, or you can purchase the unlocked phone without service.

That is a terrible way to launch a phone and it is Google's fault not T-Mobile. I like how they are trying to pawn it off on T-Mobiles servers. The truth this that i am buying a phone from google, they should have made sure they and t-mobile are ready for the launch. if i was buying at the store i would blame the tmobile, but since i can only buy it online through Google it is 100% dissatisfaction with google. Apple sells an experience not just the product, if google wants to compete they need to work on the experience, because so far the ordering process has been a shitty experience.

Hopefully when i am finnaly able to purchase this phone, i will have less issues. The phone looks and sound great. If only i could actually order one!

well said. this is ridiculous. I was extremely excited about the phone, but this time of disorganization from such prominent company is really disappointing. I don't understand why they insisted on selling it themselves, when t-mobile has thousands stores all over the US - they could have had lines out the doors with giddy nexus one fans but instead it's more of the waiting game.

I have been trying to get through like everyone else, primarily to answer a question. How much WILL it cost to upgrade? According to this site it is going to cost us more as existing customers even with a qualifying contract (or lack thereof). Is it going to cost $379 if you already have a contract and eligible data plan?

You can choose to purchase the Nexus One from the Google Phone Webstore without service for $529 USD, or with a qualifying T-Mobile US service plan at a discounted price:

* Nexus One without service: $529
* Nexus One with new, 2-year T-Mobile US service plan for new customers: $179
* Nexus One with new, 2-year T-Mobile US service plan for qualifying existing T-Mobile customers who are adding data plans: $279
* Nexus One with new, 2-year T-Mobile US service plan for qualifying existing T-Mobile customers who are upgrading their data plans: $379

I am getting a sneaky feeling that we (as loyal T-Mobile customers) are getting diss'd here. You can't honestly tell me that they can't get their act together and have had a 5+ hour long server issue. All the while, the people who are joining T-Mobile for the first time are able to purchase the phone.

I am starting to think they are blocking us out so that the new kids can get the bigger box of Crayons first. You just watch... When the servers are no longer "busy or unreachable" they will be all sold out. :-/

that's an interesting thought. if that happens, I'm gonna be bloody furious. like someone else mentioned, this is not on t-mobile at all. if google wasn't being so retarded, they would've taken a multifaceted approach of allowing t-mobile to carry the nexus one in stores or at LEAST on their websites. I'm to the point of almost throwing my hands up in the air and waiting six months until my full upgrade and seeing if anything better comes out.

I had the keep hitting the back button + F5 (refresh) and after like the 10th time, I actually connected though I didn't qualify because my 1 year contract doesn't end until April.

Give it a try... it may work for others as well.

I too was getting the same error message when trying to order the phone. I was using Chrome at the time and dL'ed the newest version of Firefox (3.5, I think) and it worked perfectly. Dunno if this will help, but it worked for me. Also, I am a new T-Mobile customer if that means anything.

I'm a very big fan of google...and in free time likes to learn and read more about it.....Its was a very informative and knowledge gaining experience reading this post.Thanks for sharing your information with all of us.
