Without citing its sources, the Telegraph
is reporting matter-of-factly that the Nexus One
will launch on Vodafone in April for a to-be-determined price, though it's "likely to be priced very similarly to comparable smartphones such as the iPhone." It's no secret
that Vodafone's picking up Google's Snapdragon
-powered beast -- but we've yet to lock it down to a 30-day window like this, so it's progress. Coincidentally, this is going to collide head-to-head with the European release of the Desire
, HTC's remix of the Nexus One with Sense
and an optical pad thrown in, so it'll be fascinating to see which of these monsters comes out on top at retail.
