The Nexus S availability has been announced for the US and UK market. In the US, it will be on sale on 16th December at T-Mobile and Best Buy outlets at $199 (approx. RM626) with 2 years contract or $529 (approx. RM1666) for outright purchase.
While in the UK, it will be available few days later on 20th December from Carphone warehouse from £35 (approx. RM173) on contract or £549 outright (approx. RM2717). Considering the Nexus S is a Samsung Galaxy S with extra enhancements, the outright device from the US of US$529 (RM1666) is cheaper than the current Galaxy S price tag of RM2599 in Malaysia.
For the rest of us here, we have no idea if Google will make it available officially in Malaysia. As mentioned earlier, all we can do is to submit a Registration of Interest (ROI) for updates on availability in our country. We hope that Google had learned from its past whereby the Nexus One was only shipped to only a handful of countries including our Singapore neighbour down south.
If you’re eager to own a Nexus S before anyone else in Malaysia, the best option is to get it via a friend staying in the states or perhaps the folks at VSHub can make it happen.
