Vodafone UK confirm HTC Desire and exclusive HTC Legend in April

Verizon Nexus One on sale imminently?

Some people won't be happy until Google's Nexus One is running on Verizon's CDMA network, and while the search giant have confirmed that such a variant is in the works, they haven't made the exact timescale for its release public.  Now, according to a report in a Chinese newspaper, HTC have begun shipping CDMA versions to Verizon, in preparation for a launch this month or in April. The handset is expected to offer exactly the same functionality as the existing GSM Nexus One, only replace the UMTS/HSPA modem with a CDMA version.  However it's not believed to be a so-called world phone; i.e. it isn't expected to include both CDMA and UMTS/HSPA connectivity for worldwide roaming use. The paper also suggests that HTC will ship the GSM version of the Nexus One to European carrier Vodafone "soon".  The UK arm of the carrier put up a new information page for the handset in their "coming soon" section last Friday.

Nexus One gets Vodafone UK pre-register option

It's no surprise that Vodafone are set to offer the Google Nexus One, what we haven't known so far is when it might be arriving or how much the Android 2.1 smartphone will cost.  Still no figures or exact dates, but Vodafone UK have updated their Coming Soon page with a "register for updates" option for the Nexus One. So far all the listing says is that the Nexus One is coming soon, though we previously heard from a UK paper that the launch would take place in April 2010.  As for pricing, a leaked Vodafone Germany document suggested that the subsidized handset would come in at €149.90 (£136).  We wouldn't be surprised to see the Nexus One hit the UK from free on high-priced contracts, however.
