The Nexus One has been making a splash in North America for a couple of months, but many in Europe have been wondering when they will be able to get their hands on it. According to the Telegraph, the Nexus One will be on sale in April on Vodafone.
The Nexus One represents a first for Google as the phone can be purchased directly from the company with no contract. Buying a Nexus One without a contract can be quite expensive, although, if you’re planning to stick with the carrier for the typical two years, you can buy it with subsidy as it will save you money up front but may cost you more in the end.
Although the phone has been given much praise, there are some questions still lingering about the quality of its screen despite the claim that it’s a software related issue.
Supposedly Vodafone was pushing for a March launch but the usual “sources close to both companies have confirmed” that an April launch is the targeted launch date.
While it has not been officially confirmed by Google, the deadline does make sense. If true, it would also align the launch around another rumored timeline of the Nexus One launch on Verizon, which might happen in late March.
