The typical lifespan of a modern smartphone is 4 months, that is when referring to RRP (recommended retail price) at least. The Google Nexus S with its pure Android experience has now passed that marker and to celebrate, has undergone a little price cut, but it's more than that.
UK online retailer Clove have just priced a SIM free, unlocked Google Nexus S at around £318. Now this isn't without compromise. The big difference is the switch to S-LCD screen technology from the Nexus S typically famed Super AMOLED. This is nothing new of course, Nexus S version sporting an S-LCD screen has been available since launch.
Price drops are popping up elsewhere too. A typical retailer on Amazon will sell you one for around £325, still a saving worth thinking about, considering the handset in question.
