Google Nexus S hits Carphone Warehouse on Dec 20

Google smartphone on £35-per-month contract

Google's latest smartphone, the Nexus S, will be exclusively available from the Carphone Warehouse on December 20, with contracts starting from £35 per month.

The mobile phone retailer said the handset is available on monthly subscriptions from Orange, T-Mobile, O2 and Vodafone. Depending upon the network, the subscriptions offer 600 or more minutes, along with unlimited text messages and in some cases unlimited internet.

While there is no cost for the handset on the £35-per-month subscriptions from O2, Orange and Vodafone, those wanting to use the Nexus S on T-Mobile's network will find they need to fork out £49 for the smartphone on the cheapest tariff, but in return they get the biggest bundles of minutes and text messages.

Alternatively, the smartphone is available on a pay-as-you-go basis for £549.95; £10 worth of top-up is included in that price.

The Nexus S, which was unveiled earlier this week, features a 4in super-AMOLED display and is powered by a 1GHz Hummingbird processor with dedicated Graphics Processing Unit (GPU).

The successor to Google's 'superphone', the Google Nexus One, features Gingerbread, the latest edition of the search engine's mobile platform, Android. Version 2.3 of the OS offers a number of improvements, including an improved copy and paste function, a new keyboard, a gyroscope sensor support, which is useful for games, and support for VoIP.

The Google Nexus S also features a 16GB memory and front- and rear-facing cameras.
