Nexus One sells out as HTC struggle to find AMOLED panels

Google's general sales of the Nexus One via their US webstore may not have set the world alight - though they were apparently enough to satisfy CEO Eric Schmidt - but it seems its appeal as a developer device is stronger.  The company has confirmed that the Nexus One is currently out-of-stock through its developer portal, with both Google and HTC having burned through their supplies of the smartphone.

Google is blaming a "worldwide AMOLED shortage" for HTC's inability to produce Nexus One handsets quickly enough, but says that "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."  No public timeline for that to happen, however.
