Nexus One vs iPhone, Droid & Palm Pre - Total Cost of Ownership

Nexus One vs iPhone, Droid & Palm Pre - Total Cost of Ownership

January 5, 2010

Today is Nexus One launch day and we decided in typical BillShrink fashion, we would take a look at the overall total cost of ownership of the Nexus One vs. iPhone vs. Droid vs. Palm Pre. This is the first time that any phone has been available for purchase unlocked and available for purchase at a discounted rate with a TMobile Contract.

As the smartphone wars continue to heat up the Nexus One is entering a marketplace that is currently dominated by the iPhone 3GS with and gaining popularity of the Droid by Verizon Wireless.

So, here is what you’ve been waiting for, our total cost of ownerships comparison of the Nexus One up against the rest!

Droid vs. iPhone vs. Palm Pre vs. MyTouch 3G
Android G1 vs. iPhone 3GS vs. Palm Pre

Editor’s Note: We’re aware that there are a few discrepancy in the graphic above and we appreciate readers pointing them out, we’ll be making updates to the graphic ASAP to clarify the information, specifically with regards to plan pricing and features (e.g., whether or not data plans are really unlimited or just claims to be unlimited). With regards to plan pricing and choice, you should note that on average, 80% of Americans overpays for their cell phone service — and this is why we’re here too ;) In our future graphics that compares total costs, we’ll try to include minimum pricing plans so you can have an even better understanding of the price difference between carriers and smartphones. Lastly, we do know that there’s a 32 GB version of the iPhone, the 16 GB version was chosen as its more comparable in retail price point to the other smartphones.

Good day, sun shines!
There have were times of hardship when I felt unhappy missing knowledge about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright pessimistic person.
I have never thought that there weren't any need in big initial investment.
Nowadays, I feel good, I started take up real income.
It gets down to select a proper partner who utilizes your funds in a right way - that is incorporate it in real deals, parts and divides the income with me.
