Nexus S Release Date and Pricing Revealed for US/UK

Yesterday was a good day for Android fans as we saw the Android 2.3 OS being made available to Nexus One owners and we also got the Nexus S release date which is confirmed as being December 16 in the US and December 20 in the UK.

We also now know the price tag for the Nexus S and have found that in the US, it will be priced at $199 locked on contract for 2 years or if you prefer it unlocked and off contract, it costs $529. Best Buy in the US will have exclusive rights to sell the Nexus S.

For those of us here in the UK, the price will be free for those willing to pay £35/month for 24 months. For the SIM free version it’s priced at £549.95. We’re not sure about the high price of the SIM free version as it’s way more than the US version although you are getting a very nice phone for that price.

It runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread, has a 4 inch WVGA Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen that has a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels. It runs a 1GHz Cortex A8 Hummingbird processor and has two cameras built in.

There’s the usual connectivity which includes Wireless 802.11/b/g/n, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR as well as A-GPS, microUSB and a 1500mAh battery. A gyroscope sensor is also built in as well as NFC for contactless payments when and where available.

    Can we in the UK not just by the US version and then separately buy a UK charger?
    That way we save about £200

  2. Kidding, however you could use an adapter to charge with the U.S. charger.
