Google tweaks its Nexus One pricing

T-Mobile and Google have come together to configure a new pricing scheme for existing T-Mobile customers...sort of.

Remember when we said existing T-Mobile customers had to pay more for the Google Nexus One if 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.
