Developers buy out remaining Nexus One stock

Some sad news today from the Android Developers Blog: the Nexus One is out of stock. We’ve known for some time that the supply for the general public had run dry, but the blow was alleviated by the fact that the phone would continue to be available to developers.

Well, that was the plan, at least.

A couple of weeks ago, we arranged that registered developers could buy an unlocked Nexus One via their publisher page in Android Market. We think it’s a good development platform and a nice phone. Apparently, you agree. Somewhat too many of you, in fact; we blew through the (substantial) initial inventory in almost no time, and they’re back-ordered from HTC, who are doing a pretty good job of managing runaway success amid a worldwide AMOLED shortage. Everyone appreciates that it’s important to the platform to get phones in the hands of developers, so we’re working hard on re-stocking the shelves; stand by.Tim BrayAndroid Developers Blog

Hopefully they’ll be able to get their hands on another batch and meet the demand but with screen shortages and a new phone coming out every few weeks there’s no telling how long we could be waiting.

It’s Friday, boys. Pour one out for the best phone your friends have never heard of.
