Google Nexus One and Australia

Possibly one of the worst kept ‘launch’ secrets, Google announced the Nexus One back at the start of January, specifically the 5th.

Launched within the US, UK, Singapore and Hong Kong, customers were able to purchase a Nexus One. However, that left Australia and a plethora of other countries without access to the latest Google gadget.

More recently, there have been reports of a “2010 release date” for the Nexus One in Australia. Vodafone Hutchison Australia (VHA) (Vodafone and Three networks) have said “Details relating to Vodafone’s Australian launch of Google Nexus One will be announced in due course.”

This due course may be confirmed by some photos taken during a ‘dissection’ of the Nexus One…

The picture may not seem to reveal much at first, however in the lower left corner appears the ‘A-tick’, a certification of ACMA’s “Telecommunications/Radiocommunications Labelling”.

Being certified by ACMA hopefully indicates and confirms future sales in Australia.

In the mean-time the temptation to import grows, with numerous sites now offering the phone along with warranty with a slightly inflated price…

  1. I like my HTC Hero better. The iconic ‘Chin’ is absent from this device… It is quite ergonomic as well.

    The Nexus unfortunately gets quite warm due to the thin design and high power components.
