Nexus One Pricing for Existing T-Mobile Customers 

So here's the deal, the Nexus One sells for $529 unlocked, $179 for eligible new customers signing a 2-year contract with T-Mobile. And as for existing subscribers upgrading to the Nexus One (Google/T-Mobile says no to Family Plan), they will be able to get it at a discounted price: 

  • $279 - Nexus One with new, 2-year T-Mobile US service plan for qualifying existing T-Mobile customers who are adding data plan.
  • $379 - Nexus One with new, 2-year T-Mobile US service plan for qualifying existing T-Mobile customers who are upgrading their data plans.

The Google Phone Store will automatically check if you're eligible for the discounted price.

Here's some math for you (Thanks, Russell):

$279 + $80/month x 24 months = $2199
$379 + $80/month x 24 months = $2299
Unlocked - $529 + $60/month x 24 months = $1969

Nexus One Review

 

It’s been the talk of the internet for weeks on end, and the day is almost here…or so every phone geek wishes. Google just invited a group of reporters to an “Android Press Gathering” on January 5th, and the word on the street is that they’ll be unveiling what I would like to call “The Messiah”. Maybe you’ve heard of it? The  official street name is The Nexus One.

Rumors started running wild as soon as Google decided to hand out the sexy phone to their employees. As soon as the news hit the blogs, Google tried to get in front of the rumors by stating that they were simply testing new mobile technologies. 

“We recently came up with the concept of a mobile lab, which is a phone that combines innovative hardware from a partner with software that runs on Android to experiment with new mobile features and capabilities, and we shared this phone with Google employees across the globe,” Mario Queiroz, vice president of product management wrote on Dec. 12. Really Mario? 

I was one of thousands and possibly millions of individuals searching the web to find what this phone looked like, and then we all ran into it’s first unofficial picture. At a glance, I wasn’t really that satisfied. It looked simple….plain…..bland. What made me excited though, was the rumors of it’s speed and new firmware. 

I spent weeks on end drooling over the anticipation of getting my grubby little finger tips on the phone, and my day came early. Oh yes, I was a good boy this year and Santa were nice enough to drop a late X-Mas gift under my malnourished tree.

Ladies and Gentleman, say hello to the Nexus One.

Nexus One on AT&T 3G later in the future?

Countless of AT&T subscribers were heartbroken when the news flooded in saying that the Nexus One in the US is only compatible on the T-Mobile 3G bands and only EDGE on AT&T. People were speculating that perhaps Google will release another version of the Nexus One that may work on AT&T 3G. Now being reported by BGR, there may or may not be a "second unlocked model" of the Nexus One that will be AT&T 3G-compatible. Of course take with a great deal of salt, since we have not seen such a device pass the FCC. And even if it exists, we doubt it would be launched in 3 days.

Nexus One Price: $530 Unlocked, $180 With T-Mobile Contract?

 

Gizmodo was tipped with several screen shots of what appears to be the official Nexus One landing page and pricing for the phone. You're given two options to get the Nexus One upon release: Sold directly from Google. Unlocked and unsubsidized for $530. Or $180 if you're eligible and sign a 2-year contract with T-Mobile. In addition, here are some new details copied from Gizmodo:

• If you want it subsidized, you'll have to sign up for a 2 year mandatory contract
• There's only one rate plan: $39.99 Even More + Text + Web for $79.99 total
• Existing customers cannot keep their plan if they want a subsidized phone; they have to change to the one plan, and this only applies to accounts with one single line
• If that doesn't fly with you, you have to buy the $530 unlocked version—this actually might save you money over two years if you already have a cheap plan
• Family plans, Flexpay, SmartAccess and KidConnect subscribers must buy the phone unlocked and unsubsidized for $530
• You can only buy five Nexus One phones per Google account
• There is language in the agreement of shipping outside the US
• Google will sell it at google.com/phone, which explains what they were doing with that page a few weeks ago
• Google will still call it the Nexus One apparently, and not the Google Phone

And here is a big one:
• If you cancel your plan before 120 days, you have to pay the subsidy difference between what you paid and the unsubsidized price, so $350 in this case. Or you can return the phone to Google. You also authorize them to charge this directly to your credit card.

UPDATE: Engadget got the full terms of sale.
