Google’s Nexus S available on-line

Mobile phone retailer Carphone Warehouse has now opened up pre-ordering for the Google Nexus S, for delivery at the end of December.

Carphone Warehouse is exclusively selling the Nexus S, which has been made for Google by Samsung – with the previous Nexus One handset being manufactured by HTC.

The mobile phone retailer is bundling the phone free on contracts from O2, T-Mobile, Orange and Vodafone with price plans that start from £35 a month on 24-month contract lengths and £40 a month on 18-month plans.

Orange offers for £35 a month, 700 minutes, unlimited text messages and a 500MB data allowance, or 600 minutes, unlimited text messages and a 750MB data allowance, or 900 minutes and an unlimited text message bundle.

O2 provides for the same cost 900 minutes, unlimited text messages and a 750MB data allowance where Vodafone has 600 minutes, unlimited text messages and a 500MB data bundle.

Samsung’s Nexus S arrives running Android ‘Gingerbread’ 2.3 OS, with a 4-inch Super AMOLED capacitive touch screen, powered by a 1Ghz Cortex A8 ‘Hummingbird’ processor with 16GB of internal storage, a 5 megapixel camera and LED flash, along with a front-facing VGA camera and with a near field communication chip.

Notably absent from the line-up of operators carrying the Google Nexus S is the mobile phone network Three, who currently sell the close cousin of the handset – the Samsung Galaxy S.

The Samsung made Nexus S is also available on pay as you go contracts from Carphone Warehouse for £549.95 with a £10 top up, or SIM free and unlocked for the same price.
