Vodafone Discounts Nexus One After Nexus S Launch

Vodafone is clearing out stocks of the Nexus One hours after the Nexus S smartphone has been launched and is offering the handset for £25 per month for the first 2000 orders.

That said, the cheapest account is good enough only for light users as it includes only 100 minutes, 500 texts and 500MB mobile internet on a two year contract.

A more attractive package with 600 minutes, unlimited texts, 500MB on the same contract length will cost a less attractive £30, only £5 cheaper than the Google Nexus S package, also available on Vodafone.

Customers looking for a beefier offer can choose the £35 one which includes 900 minutes, unlimited texts and 750MB UK mobile internet and 5MB Euro data.

Almost one year after its launch, the Nexus One is still a pretty good handset. It comes with a 1GHz processor like the Nexus S (although the latter's GPU is significantly better), it has a 5-megapixel camera with Flash, a 3.7-inch capacitive touchscreen with a 800x480 resolution (same as the Nexus S) and much more.
