You can currently buy the Google Nexus One Online directly from Google!
There are 2 ways you can buy it, you can buy it with a plan from T-Mobile or buy it unlocked.

Buying it without a plan costs $529.00 where as buying it from T-Mobile costs $179.00, Google is also working on setting up a plan for Verizon Users, yes Verizon has the Droid, and will also have the Nexus One! The estimated arrival of the Nexus One to Verizon's network is spring 2010. Also Vodaphone users will also be able to buy the phone in the spring of 2010.

With this online phone store being created you can expect Google to continue to make smartphones, expect the Nexus Two, or other interestingly named phones to emerge from Google's Android OS.
