Google Nexus One Pricing details

Apparently some unknown tipster found a landing page for the new Google Nexus One and took a few screen shots of it and sent it to Gizmodo. The validity of the image and details it contains remains to be seen, but the pricing information does make sense.

Basically, the unsubsidized, unlocked, without a contract Nexus One will be sold for $530 by Google. However, if you opt for the two year contract by T-Mobile, it becomes an affordable, realistic $180. The $180 price tag stacks up with the 16GB iPhone 3GS and the Motorola Droid, which both sell for $199 on their respective carriers. The only rate plan offered for the phone is $39.99 Even More + Text + Web for $79.99 total. Now, if you are an existing T-Mobile customer with a plan set in place, you would have to change to this plan in order to receive the subsidized $180 phone. However, if you want to keep your existing plan and still use this phone, you would have to buy it for $530. In fact, if you are on a family plan, Flexpay, SmartAccess, or KidConnect, then you would have to buy an unsubsidized Nexus One for $530.

Now, the phone will be sold out of the United States with a language agreement. The website Google will use to sell the Nexus One will be For every Google Account, five Nexus One’s may be purchased. If you terminate your plan within 120 days after purchase, Google will charge you the difference between the amount you paid for the subsidized phone ($180) and the actual cost ($530), so the difference comes out to be $350. In addition, at the price page, they offer two accessories – a desktop docking station for $39.99 and a car docking station for $49.99.

It will definitely be interesting to see how this rumor pans out and whether these are the actual retail prices.
