Google Nexus S delayed in UK, comes cheaper

Google Nexus S delayed in UK, comes cheaper
There is a bad and a good news for everyone in Britain most eager to taste the Google Nexus S. Of course, we will start with the good news, which is the contract-free price of the handset - it's slashed from £549.99  to £429.99, which definitely makes a difference. We're not sure that the bad news makes a difference, though - the handset is set to be released on December 22 rather than December 20, i.e. that's only one day away from now. Furthermore, the Google Nexus S is free if you buy it with a £30 per month contract, so we guess the UK geeks are one big happy bunch.
