The first pricing details for the forthcoming Nexus One Android device by Google have surfaced.
The device will be sold for $529.99 unlocked, discounting previous rumors and desires that the device would be subsidized by Google. T-Mobile will be offering a subsidy for the device down $179.99 with a 2 year agreement, the caveat being that the only service plan being offered will be the Even More + Text + Web plan at $79.99/month.
The T-Mobile subsidy has another caveat in that any customer wishing to cancel before 120 days must pay the difference of the subsidy as well as the ETF, with the option to return the device directly to Google and charge the subsidy difference to a credit card.
Existing customers on a single line agreement will not be able to upgrade to the Nexus One and keep their current plan, with the above plan being forced on all single line T-Mobile activations. The only way around the limitation is to pay full price for the device.
The purchase of the Nexus One will be tied to the customer’s Google account with a strict limit of 5 devices per account, with additional legal language prohibiting the shipping of the device outside of the US.
