Carphone Warehouse slashes Google Nexus S price

Android handset now £429.99 SIM-free

The Carphone Warehouse has slashed the price of the Google Nexus S.

The handset, which is the successor to Google's first 'superphone' the Nexus One and is being stocked exclusively by the high-street retailer, is now priced at £429.99 for the SIM-free version - that's a whopping £119 discount.

The Google Nexus S is manufactured by Samsung and is powered by a 1GHz Hummingbird processor with dedicated graphics processing unit (GPU). It is also now available for £30 per month on two-year contracts with O2 or Orange, which is £5 cheaper. Brits will be pleased to know there's no initial outlay for the handset either.

The Nexus S, which was unveiled earlier this month, features a 4in super-AMOLED display and runs 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.
