It's not Google's first time to get in the smartphone sale business. In 2010, the company failed to sell Nexus One, a specially-designed Android smartphone, directly to consumers. The store was closed only four months later.

Late last month, Google is reported to plan to sell tablet computers directly to consumers in its online store. Some industry watchers said Google may use the store to boost the introduction of much-anticipated Nexus tablet, a 7-inch device at the price of 199 dollars.
