Nexus One T-Mobile upgrade price cut to $279; Insurance now available

Change is afoot with the Nexus One, or to be more accurate with Google and their initial carrier partner in the US, T-Mobile.  According to some leaked screenshots from internal T-Mobile systems, the pair are preparing not only to reduce upgrade pricing for the handset from $379 to $279 for existing subscribers, but to offer insurance for both unlocked and subsidized handsets.

Official Nexus One Accessories incoming: Car Dock and Desktop Dock

Official Nexus One Accessories incoming: Car Dock and Desktop Dock

Last week we asked where all the Google Nexus One accessories were hiding, and with still no sign of any official peripherals for the handset we're happy at least to see official confirmation of the upcoming Nexus One Car Dock.  Commenter Chris Roberts flagged up mention of the Car Dock in Google's online documentation for the Nexus One, where it's tipped to be "coming soon".

Google sell 20k Nexus One handsets in first seven days?

Google sell 20k Nexus One handsets in first seven days?

Google's Nexus One has only been on sale for just over a week, and unsurprisingly the search giant aren't being especially forthcoming with sales figures quite yet.  That hasn't stopped mobile application analytics company Flurry from sticking their collective neck out and estimating around 20,00 of the Android 2.1 devices had been sold, and contrasting that with first-week Motorola DROID sales of 250,000 handsets and iPhone 3GS sales of 1.6m handsets.

Nexus One Vodafone Germany price leaked?

Nexus One Vodafone Germany price leaked?

Google may have been able to blur country boundaries with their (limited) international shipping for the Nexus One, but they haven't been able to quash import duties and taxes.  That's meant an extra sting in the unlocked tail of the Nexus One for those impatient enough to order it straight away, and a fair few folk preferring to wait until Google start offering the Android 2.1 smartphone locally.  Until now we didn't know how much that would cost, but a supposed leak from Vodafone Germany has tipped a contract price of €149.90 ($217).

iSwitched: iPhone 3GS to Nexus One

iSwitched: iPhone 3GS to Nexus One

I switched! Yes indeed, I dropped AT&T and the iPhone 3GS in favor of the Google Nexus One and T-Mobile. I’d made many excuses as to why I put up with the painful AT&T network, from having apps that I needed to do my work to simply the daily habit of using the iPhone. When Google announced the Nexus One last week I wasn't even overly excited; I knew I wouldn’t be switching until I could rely on it for my day-to-day tasks.

Google support forums flooded by deluge of Nexus One customer complaints

Google support forums flooded by deluge of Nexus One customer complaints

The Google support forums are awash with customer complaints about the newly released Nexus One smartphone.  Consumers buying the device are finding that Google's level of customer support is limited to email, which is only answered in a day or two - there happens to be absolutely no direct phone support available at all.  The main complaint according to Engadget appears to be owners reporting that their device either never switches to 3G, or, it is constantly switching between 3G and EDGE (and 3G coverage debate).  It is reported that many of those having difficulties are so frustrated by Google’s lack of response and feedback that some are returning their phones to purchase competing models.

Dell Mini 3 and Google Nexus One UK launch plans unfold

Dell Mini 3 and Google Nexus One UK launch plans unfold

CES 2010's US-focus means we generally have to wait a little longer to hear about when some of the more appealing gadgets may make their way to foreign shores, but a couple of the headline-grabbing Android smartphones have already been promised to the UK.  Dell confirmed with Electricpig that the Dell Mini 3 would be, perhaps unsurprisingly, headed to the UK, together with the tease that the handset was apparently "built specifically with the UK in mind", while Total Telecom have heard from UK carriers T-Mobile and 3 that they're currently negotiating with Google over the Nexus One.

Where are the Google Nexus One accessories?

Where are the Google Nexus One accessories?

As our Nexus One unboxing video demonstrated, when it comes to in-box entertainment Google are definitely expecting the smartphone itself to do the talking; included accessories are limited to an Android-branded slip case, an AC adapter and a USB cable.  In the run up to the Nexus One's debut, however, we saw leaks of various add-ons including a Bluetooth car dock and a Bluetooth desk dock; Google, though, made no mention of any Nexus One accessories, third-party or otherwise, at their launch event on Tuesday.
