Why Is The Price Of Google Nexus S Falling So Quickly?

One has to wonder why the price of the Google Nexus S is falling like there's no tomorrow; the handset, which was launched on the 6th December 2010, initially carried a preorder price of £35 per month on a two year contract.

Mobiles.co.uk, a subsidiary of Carphone Warehouse, is now selling the handset with 300 minutes, unlimited texts and 500MB worth of data for a mere monthly fee of £25.54.

To put things in perspective, this is the price you will pay for the Samsung Galaxy S, which is widely considered as the precursor to the Google Nexus S (manufactured by Samsung), on the same tariff at Orange.

The Nexus S comes with a 4-inch super AMOLED screen with a resolution of 800x480 pixels, it has a slightly curved body which is reminiscent of the first HTC-manufactured Android handsets (remember the chin on the HTC Hero?).

It also packs a 1GHz processor, 16GB on-board storage, a 5-megapixel camera with HD video capture, a front facing camera, Wi-Fi, NFC technology, but worryingly doesn't have a microSD card reader. The total cost of ownership is £612.96 with the phone costing £429.99 unlocked at Mobiles.co.uk.
