Google's Nexus One Backlash: Shoddy Service

Let the backlash begin.

Nary a week after Google (GOOG) unveiled its new Nexus One smart-phone -- billed as the first real challenger to Apple's (AAPL) wildly popular iPhone -- complaints about shoddy service and weak developer support have begun pouring in. Customers are complaining about poor connectivity over current, third generation (3G) wireless networks, while developers bemoan the lack of tools for building new applications to run on the phone's Android 2.1 operating system.
