Google’s Nexus One is expected to reach Verizon on March 23, according to an anonymous source speaking to Neowin. Additionally, the CDMA version of the phone has just been approved by the FCC. Verizon uses CDMA for their mobile network, making the existing UMTS model incompatible. There isn’t many other details about the CDMA model at this time, but you can check out the full FCC details for the phone over at Unwired View.

The Nexus One smartphone was launched by Google last year, featuring their own Android OS and a 3.7-inch AMOLED touchscreen display. Google sells the phone directly, a different approach from other Android based phones. It has gotten decent reviews, and is said to be the best Android phone available at this time. While initially the Nexus One was only available for UMTS/GSM networks, Google had planned to release a CDMA version of the phone. Now that the Nexus One with CDMA has been approved by the FCC, it is expected to reach Verizon in march.

We still don’t know what the price will be, but the since T-Mobile offers it for $179 with a two year contract, it is assumed that it will be similar. Unlocked versions are currently priced at $529. Just like the T-Mobile version, it is expected that Google will sell the Verizon Wireless Nexus One directly on their website.
