Google is expected to launch a wireless carrier of its own called Nova. A new report from the WSJ now claims that this service might be compatible only with the Google Nexus 6 during launch. It has been said that Google’s carrier will be relatively small in stature, so it makes sense that Google is targeting Nexus 6 users initially.
Nova is believed to be reliant on Sprint and T-Mobile networks depending on the signal strength. There’s also some dependency on the WiFi networks, so it’s not completely reliant on the carriers. The networks will cleverly switch among themselves, although there’s no information on how this might work.
It is important to note that Google is not targeting the big ticket carriers with Nova and might instead remain just a MVNO.
Google Nova will reportedly break cover before the end of this month, so we might not have to wait long to find out. It is likely that Google will eventually bring support for more devices, but it will obviously want to start with its primary flagship given the expected size of this carrier.
