Nexus S UK Price Plans – Vodafone, O2, T-Mobile and Orange

We have been keeping you up to date on all the latest details regarding Google’s new Nexus S and we have some pricing details from some of the biggest network providers to share with you.

The handset is being released in the UK around December 20th and is available from the Carphone Warehouse on O2, Orange, Vodafone and T-Mobile. Orange are offering the Nexus S free on a £35 a month 2 year contract, and you get unlimited text messages, 700 minutes of call time and 500MB of internet for your money. With O2 you can get the smartphone for free on a £40 a month plan for 2 years which gives unlimited texts and 1,200 minutes but with no internet allowance.

Hexus has informed us that the best deal lies with T-Mobile, who are offering the phone for £49 with a 2 year £35 a month contract; however you get unlimited internet, 500 free text messages and 1,200 minutes of call time to any other network. Optionally you could go with Vodafone who give a mixed package which involves paying £35 a month for 2 years and in return you get the Nexus for free with unlimited texts, 600 minutes of talk time and 500MB of internet.

Despite all of these deals on offer, many people think that the Nexus S will be a huge failure and IT Pro Portal share this view. In their eyes the Nexus will be a big disappointment first of all because its only new features are Gingerbread and NFC with all others having already been superseded. Secondly the big price gap between the S and the One is £200 which is being deemed as too great and to add to this the fact that Google has partnered with Carphone Warehouse rather than distributing the product directly. Will these factors lead to the Nexus’s downfall? Leave us your thoughts on whether you think the Nexus S will be a success or failure and if you plan to buy it.

    Having no Smartphone, I have been awaiting this with great interest and every intention of buying it. I like what I see but have baulked at the price in the UK and have decided to wait into next year for either the price to come down or new android phones with more features to justify the money.

    And I wish someone would explain the great differene in price with the US

    I'm a nexus one owner and have been waiting for it's successor with great expectations. I am a little disappointed with the S. It is just a Galaxy S with a curved screen & flash minus sd card slot. It does of course have gingerbread and I have to say that it is still reason enough to buy it. That is until I saw the price, £549.99. That's is a whopping £210 more than the N1 and £150 more that you can pick up a Galaxy S for. That's it just too much money even for me, an android lover. Lower the price by £200 and I'll get one, else I think a Desire HD will be my next phone.
