Way over priced... dual core is just around the corner as well. I'll be waiting to see what HTC comes up with in 2011 :-)

Only Carphone Warehouse in the UK for now, Best Buy and Best Buy mobile for the states.

Best Buy USA and UK are very different beasts, i wouldn't expect any parity in terms of product or pricing between the two.

Far far far too rich for my blood, and like others have said the contracts are a joke. It looks like a nice phone, but I think you'd be mad to buy anything this close to MWC with Tegra 2 hiding round the corner

I think its a big mistake nexus on samsung, Galaxy S are gud but they too plasticy and looks like cheap knock off iphones. I thought both desire and nexus one had unique look and style, i'll never waste money on this one.

Glad that i went a head and got a desire hd now.

Afraid that this doesn't seem enough of a bump in the specs. Just expecting more i guess. The lack of SD card is going to be a killer as well.

You would of thought that google would of come up with a killer feature with it, like a high end camera or something!

Get the feeling that when you hold this next to the n1, there is nothing that jumps out and makes you think right i need to buy this phone because...

OH well, role on the 6month wait for HTC to role out my 2.3 sense riddled update.

Such a shame as I'm looking to upgrade my Nexus one.
Maybe when the price drops a la Galaxy tab......

its a joke. not to piss on samsung/google's victory parade but there isnt really anything particularly outstanding (other than gingerbread) about this phone that makes it worthy of the "nexus" name.
an ordinary piece of kit wrapped in cheap plastic. and to charge such a high price is just outrageous. just think about what u can get at this price. I m glad to have my Desire HD, and I cant imagine people with Nexus One are dying to change it. and NO MicroSD Card?! WTF....
if its $529 it might be more correctly priced, not at £549

Indeed, Apart from the screen there is no reason to change IMO. I sold a galaxy S two months ago, why would I buy another one?

It's a hilarious price to be honest, I can see it being a flop.

FYI

BEST BUY UK are the same company as carphone warehouse. My friend works in PR and web team and she told me a few weeks ago. Personally i had no idea until then, so dobt expect to see best buy doing any better deal than carphonewarehouse in the UK ;)
