The last story I wrote on the Nexus One release with Vodafone mentioned the posting of a release date for the Nexus One on Vodafone UK in April. It seems that the story panned out, with the announcement by Vodafone that they will release it on the 30th of April. I'm sure that an earlier release would have been appreciated by many, especially with all the powerful phones coming out soon.
While the phone has been available by buying it from Google, this represents the first time a European carrier has sold it online and at outlets. The phone is free with a 18 and 24 month plans starting at £35 per month.
The phone is available for pre-order from their site here. The announcement also said that:
Vodafone announces that it will start selling Nexus One from Google directly through its stores and online in the UK from 30 April and in Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain and in France through SFR during May
EuroDroid also mentions that:
Vodafone's saying you'll be able to get the Nexus on a £25 contract, despite its web site currently only offering £35 deals to people who pre-order - so if you want a better tariff, wait a bit and haggle.
The Vodafone website I have seen so far shows that you should expect the phone by May 5th, so who knows?
