Leaked Nexus One Screens Reveal $530 Unsubsidized Price, $180 with T-Mobile
By Ari Driessen
It’s amazing what just a few leaked Google Nexus One shopping cart screen shots can tell us (assuming they aren’t, well, fake of course). First and foremost, for those speculating that Google might try to the get phone in the hands of the masses by selling it at cost — not so much. The glorious sensation of freedom that would likely accompany an unlocked Nexus One will set you back $530, or you can opt for a price tag of $180 with a 2-year T-Mobile contract.
Here’s what else we can glean from the pictures (though not quite worth a thousand words):
Shop Now for Phones from AT&T Wirelesss, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon Wireless.
- The Nexus One name will endure.
- There appears to be only one rate plan available for the Nexus One: the Even More Individual 500 Plan. That’s 500 talk time minutes, unlimited messaging, and unlimited data for $79.99/mo.
- It looks like existing T-Mobile customers must switch their rate plan if upgrading for the subsidized price, or start saving their pennies for the unlocked version.
- There’s no option for the likes of family plan upgrades. Again, prepare to pony up that $530.
- The phone will be available for purchase at http://www.google.com/phone.
- You can only 5 Nexus One phones per Google account. Oh, darn.
- Yes, there’s a desktop docking station and car dock if you have any money left over.
