not as pricey as an iPhone tho, at least on a £35/month contract it's free where as an iPhone is ~£100+
#3
Not voted, but prices are always high when a new model is first out... ;)
#4
New screen design but same processor as Galaxy S, Not really deal at this price.
Best thing about the phone is Stock Andriod 2.3 no crappy kies software or waiting forever for updates
#5
Good introductory price I guess, haven't read anything about the phone yet so will do that now!

Agreed, the iphone 4 on the same tariff is at least £99 more.

after san franciso, i'm not voting for any other android phones .. until it's comparable at that price.
SF would last till nxt hi-fi comes..
#8
if its the nexus one, but better then it's going to be a good phone. But its Samsung
banned#9
...it's a Samsung. (_;)
#10
Specs look great but is it nasty and plastic-y like the galaxy-s ?

Been on the verge of ordering a desire for a while (got one for the wife and pretty impressed), but this kind of appeals on the 'no rubbish, vanilla current OS' perspective, as well as the 16GB internal storage (though yeah an SD card does pretty much cover that anyway so no massive selling point)
#11
If its a Samsung it will be very cheaply made and that's why i,m voting it cold you only need look at hw much the GalaxyS is now.
#12
that is/would be a shame, the headline specs look fab. anything else new on the horizon (HTC Evo ever making it to the uk?)
#13
$529 Unlocked in USA, which equates to £338!! Why do we have to pay £200+ premium?

Is there any way to get it from US? I got the nexus 1 directly from google and paid ~£60 tax on it. Wouldn't mind the same for nexus s!

My Galaxy S doesn't feel cheaply made at all, but comparatively yes the Desire does have the better build quality.

And it's still selling for £400+ (although I picked mine up for £320 a few months back :)
#15
Very closely resembles the HTC HD2. No real advancement in my opinion.
#16
specs dont look to much better than the galaxy s(flash and 2.3) and a little larger format...

Galaxy s can be bought from o2 shop for £339 pay and go..

No bad priced tho for a monthly contract..

Well Samsung's website for the Galaxy S says:
Battery (Standard) Li-pol, 1,500mAh
Talk time : 2G/ 769 minutes, 3G/ 391 minutes
Standby : 2G/ 750 hours, 3G/ 625 hours

Which is 31.3 days 2G and 26 days 3G so with the Nexus S you can realistically expect something similar to the Galaxy S.

Haha, I meant there 'up to' battery specs are similar to the Galaxy S, so the 'realistic' 2 days will be about right.

Reviews are very good for the handset - the best Android phone there is: http://whatnewmobile.com/android/google-samsung-nexus-s-reviews/

Battery life seems to be decent. It's interesting to see what Android 2.3 will do for existing handsets though.
