Google opens online store dedicated to Android phones

Google's Android platform has become rather popular in the relatively short time that it has been around. There are many phones on offer, on a range of carriers, for a plethora of price ranges. The issue, though, is that everything's much too scattered; a problem being fixed soon.

As Google announced their new phone, the Nexus One, earlier today, they also flicked the switch on a new domain used to sell not only that particular device, but others of the Android breed also. As Gizmodo noted, this would be a huge step forward as it'll allow potential customers to compare a wide range of different aspects, such as carriers and hardware. Currently, anyone after an Android phone has to do a lot of the research themselves, checking out different carriers and brands to see which one suits them the most.

Of course, the Nexus One is the only phone available on the store (found at Google.com/phone), but Verizon'll be the next one to hit the site, with other offerings coming later. It's a great move by Google, taking action to remove some of the confusion with Android, and will definitely help out any customers in the market for a new phone. Expect to see a range of phones added on Google.com/phone shortly.
