Vodafone to launch the Google Nexus One in the next few weeks

Yesterday, when Google finally announced the Nexus One, the Mountain View giant mentioned that the new Android smartphone would be available “in the near future” via both Verizon (in the US) and Vodafone (in Europe).

Well, it looks like that near future is really near for Vodafone, which will reportedly have the Nexus One within the next few weeks – first in the UK and then in France, Germany, Spain and other European countries.

The Nexus One’s official price from Vodafone was not announced. However, we’ve previously heard that SFR (joint-venture between Vivendi and Vodafone) will offer the smartphone for under €200 in France – so the price in other European markets will probably be similar.

Interestingly, a Vodafone spokesperson said that the carrier might launch the Nexus One in non-European countries, too. India, maybe?

Another interesting piece of info is that an O2 UK spokeswoman declared that the carrier has “no current announcement to make about supporting the Google Nexus One, but we will continue to review and refresh our product range to ensure we meet the demands of our customers.”

    Just an FYI: I went in to Vodafone yesterday and the sales assistant told me that the Google phone will be on sale before the end of Jan and that it's exclusively (on contract) through them.
