Vodafone has confirmed that the much-anticipated Google Nexus One smartphone will be available to UK users from 30 April.
The mobile network operator said that customers can pre-order the phone from today, and that those ordering online are guaranteed to be first to get the device for free on a £35 24-month contract.
Vodafone also has 18-month and 24-month price plans starting at £25 a month, including up to 1GB of mobile data.
Customers also get unlimited access to Wi-Fi in the home and any free hotspots throughout the country, and can use an additional 1GB of data at premium BT Openzone hotspots nationwide.
The Nexus One will be available via Vodafone stores and telesales, and the company said that it will provide direct support to customers if necessary.
The news will be a relief to people keen to get their hands on the much-hyped device but not prepared to buy a SIM-free version direct from Google.
Vodafone had been tight-lipped about the UK launch date until today, even refusing last week to confirm whether the Nexus One would be available by the end of the month.
