Play.com have just posted a listing for Google’s Nexus One smartphone. SIM-free, Play are confident that the Android-powered phone will be shipping on 16th February.
The Nexus One uses Qualcomm’s 1GHz Snapdragon chipset, sports a 3.7inch touch screen and runs Android 2.1. It has the latest versions of all Google’s core apps, so you get an upgraded version of Google Earth which has a 3D style quality, Gmail, Google Voice and Google Maps. It also obviously has access to the ever growing Android app store and comes with voice recognition software which lets users speak emails and tweets.
Excited? Well hold on to your credit cards for just one second. Play are listing the Nexus One for £599.99. However, Google USA have been shipping the smartphone for a little while now for $580 complete with shipping costs and a UK adaptor. That converts to a mere £370.
Looks like Play are really cashing in on being the first to the UK market here, so keep that in mind before you part with your money.
