The last of the Nexus One devices sold directly from Google were snatched up last month, meaning the only way for regular folks to get one are to purchase from carriers like Vodafone, secondhand from eBay or Craigslist, or finding one of the third party retailers selling it.

Or you can be a developer. Tim Bray posted on the Android Developers Blog that the Nexus One is now the Android Developer Phone, meaning its Google’s official device for people working on Android apps. Anyone who wants to purchase a Nexus One directly from Google will have to register as an Android Developer, then sign-in to their count and click on the “Development Phones” to get it.

I guess that makes the Nexus One ADP 3 (after the G1 as ADP 1 and the Magic as ADP 2). The new Developer Phone is $529. To sign-up as a developer, visit http://market.android.com/publish/signup.
