Google's New Nexus One, How Big a Price Edge?
Page 1 of 1
Earlier this week Google unveiled the sleek new Nexus One, what it called the first of a new generation of 'superphone.' But as you'll read in EnterpriseMobileToday, Google can tout more than snappy new features.
Price isn't everything, but for consumers who opt for unlimited data and voice plans, the Apple iPhone and Motorola Droid are looking extra-expensive compared to some of the competition.
In an analysis released this week, BillShrink compared the service plans of Google's new Nexus One, the Motorola Droid, the iPhone 3GS and the Palm Pre. The unlimited plans for the iPhone and Droid -- which are exclusive to AT&T and Verizon Wireless, respectively -- each total $3,799 for 24 months.
The Palm Pre, which runs on Sprint, is only $2,549. The Android-based Nexus One, which is carried by T-Mobile, comes in even lower as the price leader among the four, at $2,499.
