Today in the mobile world is, for all accounts and purposes, Nexus S and Android 2.3 Gingerbread day. Now that the official announcements have been made, the small details are starting to become available.
A short while after the Nexus S was unveiled, its pricing for the US market was made public, and you can read all about it in Florin’s post covering the Nexus S launch. What we didn’t know back then was the pricing in the UK – as this is one superphone that will cross the pond very fast.
The Google Nexus S is going to become available from Carphone Warehouse in the UK “after December 20″, and it will cost you a pretty hefty £549 if you’d like to buy it with no operator commitment. If you’d like a contract to go with that Nexus S, you’ll have to pony up £35 per month to get the phone for free, and Carphone Warehouse will let you choose between Vodafone and T-Mobile as the network you’ll be tied to for two years.
Also out is the official Android 2.3 user manual. It’s available in PDF form here (caution: direct link to PDF!), and has 374 pages explaining and detailing everything you (or perhaps someone new to Android) would ever want to know about Google’s latest version of their mobile operating system.
The manual looks something like the screenie above (which is an excerpt showcasing Gingerbread’s new download manager), is full of pictures, easy to go through, and will surely prove useful to many.
