Google had finally decided to abandon the Nexus One Online Store. Reports says that Google is displeased with the performance of the store and said that it is better offline.

Google’s Nexus One is reviewed to be the fastest and most powerful Android phone in the market. The Google Nexus One ha sa 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 512MB of RAM, multiple wireless connectivity options, and a 3.7-inch capacitive touch-screen display.

It was just four months ago when Google launched this touchscreen technology to compete with Apple’s iPhone and the Blackberry from Canada’s Research in Motion. After four months despite the enthusiasm and reception of people for the Nexus One phone, its Online Store is performing below expectations.

Nexus One is also one of the first mobile phone to be powered by an open-source technology which Google provides for free. Google’s Andy Rubin in his blog post said, “As with every innovation, some parts worked better than others,”

Google’s innovative plan of making the Nexus One available for just around 500 dollars and then let the buyers sign-up for a carrier of their choice seem to displease these telecommunication providers.

In fact the biggest wireless providers, Sprint and Verizon Wireless, had declined to provide connectivity to the Nexus One.

Google however is not worried about the initial setbacks. They see it as a natural process that all new innovations undergoes.

“Once we have increased the availability of Nexus One devices in stores, we’ll stop selling handsets via the Web store, and will instead use it as an online store window to showcase a variety of Android phones available globally,” Rubin said.
