Google Nexus One Phone Price: $530 and $180

The first smartphone to be launched in 2010 will be the Google Nexus One Phone, if you believe all the news reports, but the price has yet to be disclosed. However, it seems that one tipster has gotten hold of a screenshots showing an unlocked version will cost $530 or $180 on a T-Mobile contact.

Gizmodo has learned much from the screenshots, and it seems that the Nexus One is not going to be that good of a phone after all, stating that it is “just another Android handset.” We have to remember that it will come with that powerful Snapdragon processor, so should offer more than current Android smartphones on the market. This will pave the way for future Google phones; we have to remember that this is their first Google-branded phone.

If you have money up front then you can purchase the Nexus One unlocked for $530 that is a lot up front but could save you money over time, depending what contract you are already on. We had thought that the phone would be offered at a subsidized, but that does not look like it will happen.

If you wish to take up a 2-year T-Mobile contract, then the phone will be $180 up front and then $39.99 Even More + Text + Web that is a total of $79.99 per month. There is no other choice; it is just the one plan, which could hurt sales. If you are an existing T-Mobile customer, you will have to change this plan to get the Nexus One at this subsidized rate.

Gizmodo does warn those who decide to cancel their plan within 120 days, you will have to pay the difference of how much the phone would have cost unsubsidized, which would be $350. Just think carefully before you decide to go for the Google Phone.
