Search engine giant Google has started to sell a version of the Android-based Nexus One smartphone that can run on AT&T's 3G network in US.
ABC News reported that the phone may be available from the same network that runs the Nexus One's archrival, Nexus One.
This is the latest attempt by the company to lure customers into buying the device, which has reportedly sold only 135,000 handsets after 74 days of its launch.
Interestingly, when compared to the million units sold by Apple within 74 days of the first iPhone's launch, Google's measly figure of 135,000 Nexus One units seems a bit damp, indicating that as long as the iPhone is around, users will not bet on other smartphone devices.
However, industry experts believe that the smartphone has failed to make an impression on users, despite being the most sophisticated Android device till date, is because of the fact that the device is only available from Google, which has decided to sell the phone separately.
Even now, when the sales of the device are dwindling, the company is only offering a 3G connection from instead of a proper plan.
According to the data released by Flurry Inc., a company which provides data related to smartphone trends to application developers, Google had managed to sell only around 135,000 units of the much vaunted device, which is up for sale on the company's website.
