Remember whenif they wanted it under contract? Well, Google and T-Mobile have heard the complaints and decided to change their pricing...just a little.
When the Nexus One first debuted, existing customers without data plans had to pay $279, while those who are upgrading their plans had to pay $379. Now, Google says all existing customers will get the $279 pricing regardless of their data plans. Those who did pay the $379 will get a refund, and of course this does not affect those who paid the $279. This isn't as good as we hoped, but $100 is better than nothing.
The noncontract Nexus One remains at $529, while the $179 is still only for new customers.
