Google Nexus S Price Drops 33% at UK’s Carphone Warehouse
UK retailer Carphone Warehouse, exclusive launch provider of the Google Nexus S, has dropped the handset’s off-contract price an eye-opening 120 pounds (~$186) from the initial pre-order period, from 555 pounds (~$861) to 430 pounds (~$667) — about a 33.5% reduction. The handset remains 550 pounds for pre-paid Vodafone customers when it goes on sale tomorrow, and free on two-year contracts starting at 35 pounds-per-month (~$54). In the US, Best Buy sells the Samsung-built Nexus S for $200 on contract and $530 off.
According to a commenter at Android Community who claims to have pre-ordered from Carphone Warehouse, the company will refund 120 pounds to those customers who earlier paid the higher price.
