Google Nexus S Price Cut To £430 Because Of Sales Concerns?

Carphone Warehouse has slashed the price of the handset from £549 to only £430 for the unlocked version, a price that includes delivery.

We're not sure why Carphone Warehouse and Google would cut the price of the Nexus S by £119, only days after it was launched; the move might be motivated by concerns about poor sales.

The phone, made by Samsung, is now a better deal compared to the Samsung Galaxy S, the phone on which it is based, one which can be had for £380 including delivery, only £50 less although a "refurbished" will cost well under £300.

We mentioned price as being one of the reasons why the Nexus S would be a failure and it looks that Google choose to play it safe with an early price cut.

You will need to remove the Geek Squad Max Mobile annual insurance worth £130 at check out. Strangely enough, the Nexus S costs £559.95 on PAYG at Vodafone from Carphone Warehouse.

We're also please to see that the cheapest Nexus S package costs only £540 (£30 on 18 month contract) with 300 minutes, 500MB data allowance and unlimited texts.
