So how much is the Nexus One really going to cost you? If you're buying unlocked, it's a simple $530. If you're a current T-Mobile customer, it gets a little cloudy. Here's the official breakdown:
- Nexus One with new, 2-year T-Mobile US service plan for new customers: $179
- Nexus One with new, 2-year T-Mobile US service plan for qualifying existing T-Mobile customers who are adding data plans: $279
- Nexus One with new, 2-year T-Mobile US service plan for qualifying existing T-Mobile customers who are upgrading their data plans: $379
Not quite so cut and dry, huh? (Thanks, Pneumatic)
Still not crazy about an unsubsidized phone, though? Below is an interesting 24-month breakdown between the Nexus One with the T-Mobile plan that comes along with a subsidized phone. Here you plainly see that if you buy an unlocked phone and go with a T-Mobile data-only plan (39.99/month), unlimited Skype calls to mobiles and landlines ($2.95/month) and a SkypeIn number ($30/year), you still come out ahead over the two years. In fact, you're ahead of the game in Month 11. Read the full findings at nosugrefneb (via Lifehacker)
