Nexus One is way cheaper than iPhone
Money isn't everything. But $600 a year isn't pocket change.
The main figure is the second line from the bottom. Over two years (the length of a service contract), the unlimited voice and data plan plus the cost of the subsidized phone is $3,799 for an iPhone on AT&T, but only $2,579 for a Nexus One on T-Mobile. That means the Nexus One will cost you $610 less a year. You will want to buy an 8 or 16GB memory card for your Nexus, so let's round it down to $600, shall we?
Also check out the Droid on Verizon. Ouch. Let's hope that when the Nexus One comes to that carrier it's competitive with T-Mobile.
Of course, money's not everything (or if it is, check out the Palm Pre). T-Mobile is not the country's best carrier, and the iPhone has a better integrated music store and way more apps. But the Nexus One plan forces you to ask what you're getting for the extra money the iPhone costs.
