Ever since the Nexus One was announced by Google, many have marveled at the “revolution” in handset sales — no more carriers! However, it sparked a lot of confusion with contract-free pricing, commitment pricing, termination fees and other details. Google is finally setting the record straight. For unlocked devices, the price stays at $529, and for new T-Mobile customers it still goes for $179. However, the pricing for customers who were eligible for upgrade with data plans was set at a high $379. Quickly coming to its senses, Google slashed $100 off the price and it is now $279; the customers who paid the higher price will be given $100 back from Google.
