Google Nexus One to hit UK on April 30

Handset now available for pre-order from Vodafone

Vodafone has made the Google Nexus One available for pre-order.

The Nexus One, which is manufactured by HTC, is powered by a Qualcomm 1GHz Snapdragon processor and features a 3.7in 480x800-pixel AMOLED screen.

The mobile network said Google's 'superphone', which was launched in January this year, will be released on April 30.

The handset is free on a 24-month contract, which costs £35 (US$54) per month and comes with 600 minutes of calls and unlimited text messages.

The mobile phone will also be available on a number of other contracts, which start from £25 per month.

Vodafone said the contracts include 1GB of mobile data as well as an additional 1GB of data for those using the handset's Wi-Fi connection at premium BT Openzone hotspots throughout the UK.

The Google Nexus One will also come with Google Maps Navigation beta pre-installed. The free app, which was launched last week, gives Android-based mobile phones turn-by-turn voice and visual navigation.

The Google Nexus One can pre-ordered from Vodafone's website.

The announcement comes just hours after reports suggested the Nexus One had been delayed in the UK.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
