Google Nexus S Price Cut By 20 Per Cent

The Carphone Warehouse has slashed the price of the Google Nexus S smartphone just one week after the device was released in the UK.
The mobile is now available at a SIM free price of £429.99, which is £120 (or 20 per cent) less than the original £549.99 launch price.
Customers can pre-order the Nexus S online at, or pick up the smartphone for free on pay monthly deals starting from £30 a month on O2, which provides 300 minutes of any-network calls and unlimited texts .
It isn’t clear why the Carphone Warehouse has cut the cost of the Google-branded phone, but the news is not likely to go down well with customers who pre-ordered the smartphone at its original price last week.
The Nexus S is the follow up to the HTC-built Nexus One . It runs the latest and fastest version of Google’s OS, Android 2.3 (codenamed ‘Gingerbread’) and packs a 4-inch AMOLED capacitive screen with Contour Display.
It also features a 5 megapixel camera with HD video capture, videocall support, HSDPA and WiFi connectivity, NFC (Near Field Communications) support and 16GB of internal storage.
