So far, T-Mobile USA's been supporting the Nexus One
at an arm's length -- Google exclusively manages sales, even if you want a new contract -- but the carrier's taking one small step this week toward fully embracing HTC's Snapdragon
-powered beast. No, they're not exactly stocking phones in the store, but at least you'll be able to protect your existing investment with a new stock of plastic protective covers that are designed specifically for the phone. It seems kind of odd to think that you'd go to the trouble of ordering the phone through the mail then head into the local T-Mobile shop to accessorize it -- but hey, T-Mobile, don't let us stop you from supporting bad-ass Android gear. Seriously.
