Let's just get down to it: Gizmodo got some leaked screen shots that show Google selling the Nexus One Phone (looks like that's gonna be the official name, btw) for $529.99 fully unlocked and $179.99 with a two-year T-Mobile plan. And if you do go the T-Mobile route, you'll be signing up for an $80-a-month plan, data included.
More fine print from Giz:
- Existing T-Mo customers can't keep their current plan if they want a subsidized phone.
- The subsidized price only works on accounts with single lines. Family plans, Flexpay, SmartAccess and KidConnect plans must buy the phone at the full $530 unlocked price.
- You can onliy buy five Nexus Ones per Google account.
- Looks like it can be shipped outside the U.S.
- It'll be sold at google.com/phone.
- And if you buy the Nexus One at the subsidized price and cancel before 120 days have passed, you have to pay the difference -- $350 -- or return the phone to Google.
One big question we have involves availability. Will the Nexus One be available at brick-and-mortar stores? Hopefully we'll find out before the Jan. 5 event.
Update: Engadget has published the entire terms of sale -- note that it's for the "Passion," so that question also is answered. (Warnings: pdf link; and legalese ahead)
Update 2: More discussion and a poll going on in our forums.
