Google Nexus S out Wednesday

Snow, stock supplies permitting

Carphone Warehouse is knocking back the release of the Samsung-Google Nexus S a couple of days.

You'll pay £430, if you buy it sans Sim when it arrives on Wednesday, 22 December.

If you can get your mitts on it at all. Both CW and Best Buy, which is also selling the Nexus S in the UK, said onmly "key" stores will have stock. Other shops will happily take your order and tell you in due course when it's available for collection.

You'll be able to order it online too.

The reason for the "limited" availability? "Strong customer interest", apparently. Or maybe Samsung is sending as many units as it can to Google in the US.

Either that or they're stuck, unable to be flown into snow-bound Britain.

The Nexus S will be free on a £30-a-month contract - of two-year duration, presumably. ®
