Google has pulled the plug on the Nexus One, its once highly anticipated smartphone. The last shipment has arrived at Google HQ, and once those are gone there will be no more Nexus Ones for US consumers, according to Mashable website.

The report said that the handset will still be sold through Vodafone in Europe and some Asian carriers, and developers will still be able to get their hands on one, but it looks like the Droid phones on Verizon will carry the mantle for Google's Android mobile operating system.

This is the end of the company's grand experiment with an unlocked consumer handset in the US, the report said.

Earlier reports said that Google had already closed the Nexus One web store two months ago due to poor sales.

Google had announced this on its blog on Friday, but there was so little interest in the story that it slipped through the cracks, the report said.
