Total Ownership Cost for Nexus One as Compared to Other Handsets

After watching all the ads,  you’re finally thinking about getting a new smart phone but not sure what to get. Maybe price is an issue, or maybe it performance. Ether way I hope that this is a help to your new year shopping. It seems that the guys at BillShrink have put a nice article together on what is the overall cheapest phone today.

In terms of “new generation of smart phones”, it’s nice to see two Android handsets on the list.  Do you think the Nexus One can be the flagship phone they’ve been waiting for?

    I am a Co-Branded Sprint retailer and I don't see why the Palm Pre has "5 gigs" of data time for it when the Sprint "Simply Everything Plan" for $99.99 has unlimited data, unlimited voice, and unlimited sms, video, and picture messaging. I think there has been a mistake.

    Google is moving down in the stack to challenge B2C opponents with an open architecture and new sets of standards. In creating a post-revenue business model, Google can only manage success if consumers accept a co-branding and outsourced manufactured device … NQ Logic recommends reading about the rest of the new Google's mobile strategy at http://www.nqlogic.com

    I don't know why these comparisons never show the barebones options. I don't know anyone who subscribes to the unlimited everything plans that aren't using their phones primarily for business.

    I really don't like the iPhone, but when you take into consideration you can get one for $80 less than the Nexus One and the phone plans are the same, the iPhone is actually cheaper to own (without the ability to use SD cards). These charts are always slanted.

    When you take into consideration that if you're in the know you can get a Sprint 500min/unlimited data/txt package for $60 (http://www.mcguireslaw.com for details), the Palm Pre is SUBSTANTIALLY cheaper at $1589 for 24/m service.

    What they should be comparing is if you're not a "new" customer and you're upgrading. Because it's there, where you really get it stuck to you.

    All of the carriers plans claim "unlimited" data, but there's still a cap of 5GB. I've heard that their line of reasoning goes something like "No one could ever, under normal circumstances, use more than 5GB of data on a phone in a month, so a cap of 5GB doesn't change the fact that it's an unlimited plan." Total crap, imho.

    You should take it up with your bosses…I'd be really curious to see how they respond.

    I would have to say that this is really miss leading customers. Also I think that it's leaving out the cost of having the unlimited plan from T-Mobile with out a contract. which if a customer is willing to pay the unlocked price of the Nexus One they would only pay $1919.76 for their cell service w/o tax over the course of two years.
