Update: You’ll be able to register your interest from tomorrow morning at 9AM. With a bit of luck they’ll supply more than the 1,000 Nexus Ones 😉
Update 2: Thanks to a keen eyed commenter, it seems as though Vodafone have listed the Nexus S with only one 12 month plan on offer. The 45 Infinite, along with a hefty $40 handset repayment for the phone itself, each month over the contract. From the information I have gathered, this is $300 more expansive than Vodafone’s most expensive handset, Apple’s iPhone 4 32GB. Way too expensive in my view, what do you think? Thanks Joshua King
Well how about that for some spot on speculation!

No release timeline or pricing just yet, but if you hit the break you can check out the all important press release.
