On April 21, Google announced that Vodafone UK were to start taking pre-orders for the Nexus One smartphone, we can now tell you that we now have a release date for you – April 30. That is just one day after the release of the HTC DROID Incredible on Verizon in the U.S.
According to Engadget, the Nexus One will not cost a penny for any tariff over £35 per month on either an 18 or 24-month contract, the new superphone can be pre-ordered on the Vodafone website, in store or over the phone – but do hurry to avoid disappointment. Plans will start from £25, but then you will have to pay towards the cost of the handset.
The Nexus One will offer a host of great features, many of them direct from Google – such as Free Google Maps and a choice of 40,000 apps from the App Marketplace. Many had assumed that this handset would be an iPhone killer, but slow sales have proved otherwise.
We are not certain why Google have waited this long to offer the Nexus One to the UK market, not when the iPhone 4G will be with us in a couple of months time?
