The Google Nexus S, which has only been on sale exclusively via the unlocked retailers so far, is about to find itself a home on a network – with Vodafone set to bring Samsung’s Android 2.3 phone to the UK.
So if you can’t bear the thought of paying actual money for a mobile phone, it’ll soon arrive on those tempting subsidised contracts.
Here’s the full announcement. There’s nothing on dates or tariff prices in it, so you don’t have to read it all.
